Dysfunctional Windsors Drive Diana To Adultery.
9 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Poor neurotic Diana, product of a broken home, is further mangled by the insensitive and abusive husband and in-laws. Prince Charles fares especially poorly in this account of the breakdown of the fairy tale romance. Poor Diana seeks solace in the arms of Major James Hewitt who was assigned to duty in the royal household.

We get glimpses of Queen Elizabeth as she glares at Prince Charles' horrible choice of wife. Prince Philip is somehow never around in this film.

Hewitt seems to be the only functional adult among all the major characters. He is able to bring a bit of sanity and common sense into the life of Diana that she comes to depend on when all else seems to be falling apart. One gets the sense that Diana was too fragile and insecure to survive her life as future Queen of England. She would have been perfectly happy had she married someone as substantial as Hewitt.

Of course, this screenplay is adapted from the book by James Hewitt and naturally tends to portray him in a favorable light. Even so, Hewitt eventually sells out Diana to make ends meet after he is dismissed from the British Army when his relationship with Diana becomes known.

The film ends before Diana gets her divorce and spirals down into her sordid romance and tragic death. I suppose time constraints for this television production had much to do with that situation.

Julie Cox does an appealing performance here, you never notice that she looks nothing like the real Diana. All in all, a reasonably good choice in a romantic tragedy.
