In real life Elizabeth never went anywhere near Scotland.  So no particular reason for Margot to be filming in Scotland unless they're using Scottish locations to stand in for English locations (which they may well be doing).

I got an answer in another forum to one of my questions about Lady Bird:

->  In the trailer, Lady Bird is seen wafting a cigarette around while standing against a wall. Is the cigarette used merely a prop or does Lady Bird actually smoke in the movie? Maybe someone who has seen the movie at TIFF would know. Just wondering.
->  If I'm remembering correctly, it was a one-time thing. It was her 18th birthday so she went to the convenience store and bought a bunch of stuff she could now as an adult, cigarettes, a Playgirl magazine, and I think something else.
->  That makes sense because she's leaning against the wall of a convenience shop. Thanks.

Part of this Deadline Hollywood story I kind of anticipated, but the moving up of the release date is something I hadn't given much thought about.

Greta Gerwig’s ‘Lady Bird’ Going A Week Earlier In November

BOX OFFICE

BREAKING NEWS

After logging a 100% Rotten Tomatoes score coming out of Telluride and Toronto, Greta Gerwig’s semi-autobiographical film Lady Bird will open Nov. 3 in limited theaters instead of Nov. 10. The A24 title will also break wide over Thanksgiving.

Lady Bird follows a fiercely independent high school senior (Saoirse Ronan) who yearns to go to college in New York so that she can get out of her humdrum Sacramento home town and away from her tormenting mom (Laurie Metcalf).

Lady Bird is on a heavy festival tour before opening theatrically with stops at the New York, Austin, Chicago, Aspen and Mill Valley Film Festivals. Focus Features took international on Lady Bird during TIFF.

While Gerwig co-directed 2008’s Nights and Weekends, Lady Bird is her solo feature directorial debut.

Sitting down at Deadline’s TIFF studio, Gerwig said, “I wrote the script to Lady Bird, and it really came out of a desire to make a project about home—like, what the meaning of home is, and place. I knew Sacramento very well obviously, growing up there, and I felt like the right way to tell a story of a place was through a person who’s about to leave it.”


I thought the film had a chance to go wide around the holiday because the distributor could plug it as a family type feature (mother/daughter/the realization of "home" in retrospect) in the marketing push.  This makes a lot of sense to me.  :D

Well, that was in London. It's only a hop, skip and a jump to get back to Scotland.

Still, that past tense thing...

I thought she'd still be on location filming after TIFF but this quote was from yesterday for a different film. It certainly sounds like it's the past tense. What are some of her fansites? I don't follow her.

Oh I don't follow her either, but in those days, and under the tag maryqueenofscots is where I watched her fansites posting her arriving again at Scotland, that tag is heavily populated by followers of some TV series so it takes the great effort now to locate the precise posts :(

Here is that bit of the interview where she refers to Saoirse.

I believe Robbie went just one week to TIFF and right after that she was back at Scotland according to her fansites, so she took a break of 1 week to promote her film.

"I just had the pleasure of working with Saoirse Ronan in the last film, who is just the most boss actress there is. She is a gem of a human being, and it was amazing. Such a great experience."
~ Margot Robbie at the premiere of still another movie of hers, "Goodbye Christopher Robin"

Nice comment, but as far as I know, MQOS is still filming. Is it?
In any event, it looks like Robbie's work there is done and has been since the beginning of the Toronto film festival, which she attended. It's good news for those worried that with Robbie on board the movie might have become "Queen Elizabeth I Gets her Bodice in a Bunch Over Mary Queen of Scots."
