Plot[change | change source]
An MI7 agent named Johnny English is protecting the Crown Jewels but they are stolen. He meets a mysterious lady named Lorna Campbell, who he becomes suspicious of.
English and his assistant, Angus Bough, discover that a French businessman named Pascal Sauvage plans to become King of Britain and turn the island into a large prison for international criminals. English meets Lorna Campbell again and she reveals she is an Interpol agent tracking Sauvage.
Sauvage's henchmen force Elizabeth II to abdicate and erase her line of succession, allowing Sauvage to become next-in-line due to being descended from James II. English, Bough and Campbell hijack the coronation of Sauvage and after a long struggle, the Archbishop accidentally crowns English.
As King, Johnny English gives the crown back to the Queen and has Pascal Sauvage arrested. While on holiday with Campbell in southern France, English accidentally ejects her from the car.
