Cockney Rhyming Slang - Tod Slaughter

Tod Slaughter was a British stage and film actor, his career started with the heroic lead and his notoriety sprang from his later portrayal of murderers and ne'er do wells. Interesting then that his name should become cockney rhyming slang for daughter.
Let's use it in a sentence:

"In the film The King's Speech, the King's tod slaughter is the Queen, you know?"
