A silver cigarette case gifted by King George VI to the man who inspired the film The King's Speech is expected to sell for well over £10,000.<br />
<br />
The 9ins by 7ins case that belonged to the stammering monarch's speech therapist Lionel Logue was meant to have been auctioned in April.<br />
<br />
The sale was put on hold due to coronavirus but the postponement has only proved to heightened interest in the item.
