Interesting cast but routine story of a Royal Romance...
24 November 2006 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Not bad, for a made-for-TV movie, and it's a wonder that given the events surrounding Princess Diana that have taken place since that famous Royal Wedding, there hasn't been more exposure of this film.

I saw it when it first aired and was never really that interested in British royalty to care about seeing it except for the notable cast. Any film that gives OLIVIA DE HAVILLAND a chance to be seen again (her career had become very sporadic by this time), was worth checking out. I was also interested in seeing how RAY MILLAND, STEWART GRANGER and DANA WYNTER appeared--other seldom seen stars from Hollywood's Golden Age.

Well, the best thing about this one is the cast. It was nice seeing all these old favorites together and CATHERINE OXENBERG gave a reasonably good performance as Diana. But I was disappointed in Olivia's Queen Elizabeth, given little to do, and only fleetingly amusing in a scene where she coaches Oxenberg on royal deportment--table manners and walking up and down stairs, etc. Other than that, she had very little to do.

Nor were RAY MILLAND, DANA WYNTER or STEWART GRANGER on display long enough to evaluate them as performers. Strange that the producers went to the trouble to get these stars and then gave them little to do except be seen as little more than background filler.

Unless you're extremely interested in British royalty, this one was pretty much a yawner not worth bothering about.
