The Duke of York had it pretty tough for a member of the monarchy, not only did he have a terrible stammer, but he really didn’t fair well with going down slides.

His stern demeanor likely stems from the fact that the speech he gave at the Wembley Exhibition took him hours to get through because of his speech impediment.

Even though many of his speeches from the war survive, his pre-reign speeches have either been destroyed or hidden. They’re legendarily bad, but the guy couldn’t help it. Once he hired speech therapist Lionel Logue he made it through his impediment and began giving grand speeches to all who’d listen.
