Intriguing and enthralling TV movie based on actual events
20 January 2000 | by (NSW Australia) – See all my reviews

"A Royal Scandal" is an interesting TV movie that recreates the 19th century marriage and subsequent marital problems of King George and his wife Princess Caroline of Brunswick. The whole saga has many interesting similarities to that of the Charles/Diana affair but is significant in the fact that it occurred in the 19th century when traditional values and the notion of the "sanctity of marriage" prevailed.

Ian Richardson is an excellent narrator with the right tone of voice to narrate such a tale. Richard E. Grant gives an outstanding performance in his role as King George and Susan Lynch also gives us an outstanding and convincing performance as Princess Caroline of Brunswick. In fact all the actors and actresses in this TV movie are outstanding and their convincing performances are to be commended.

I found "A Royal Scandal" intriguing and enthralling and historically accurate. It draws upon personal correspondence and diaries that were kept at the time to help make the story complete. I would certainly label this as recommended viewing for anyone interested in watching a production that draws upon both real history and good cast members
