Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The wedding of Great Britain's Prince William and Catherine (Kate) Middleton dazzled the world in April 2011, and this BBC documentary, The Royal Wedding, is a must-have for all royal fans. Those who watched the long coverage on American TV will appreciate the care with which the BBC has edited the processionals to a very crisply moving hour-plus, covering all of the pomp and magic of the fairy-tale day. Even the most ardent anglophile, who's already gasped in admiration of the lovely Kate and her charming prince, will find The Royal Wedding the perfect remembrance of that day. It's all here: The radiant Middleton in her dreamy long-sleeved Alexander McQueen gown, the handsome William in his military uniform, the comely Pippa Middleton carrying her sister's train, the grumpy flower girl, the sea of hats--and the two kisses from the balcony of Buckingham Palace for the adoring crowds to see. The wedding ceremony itself is also quite lovely, with choirs who'd rehearsed for months, and a sermon of simplicity and depth for the solemn state occasion. After the ceremony, William and Kate, newly christened the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, wave to adoring crowds and look genuinely happy.

The disc includes a fascinating mini-documentary about the relationship of William and Kate, who met at university and dated on and off for many years before becoming engaged. The special feature, William and Kate: A Royal Engagement, gives context and humanity to the young couple's courtship, and is the perfect companion piece to the official wedding DVD. Anyone who loves the British royal family, or history, or fairy-tale love stories will want to have The Royal Wedding--and watch it every so often to relive the magic. --A.T. Hurley

5.0 out of 5 stars review of the actual dvd release May 25, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
as a person who does not have cable, i had watched the live broadcast on abc with little complaint other than the early hour. that being said, the bbc coverage is far preferable!

this dvd may not be presented in hd, however the quality is top drawer. it begins minutes before princes william and harry depart for the ceremony, and concludes with the balcony kiss (kisses). one of the best features of the complete coverage is the sparing use of commentary. it was a perfect amount of information without being bothersome.

for some reason watching the dvd made me more choked up than watching it live did! ah, the human brain. or my human brain.

the other great part about this dvd is the extra feature on william and catherine's courtship. as with all other things bbc, it is a solid piece and a welcome addition to the already affordable dvd.

i am certain i will purchase not only an extra copy for myself, but a couple extras to send to relatives.

i can not recommend this highly enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars A charming collectible for years to come May 3, 2011
Format:DVD
The world watched after the long wait. Those who had to give up sleep for the event, did so without complaint. It is undoubtedly the biggest wedding affair of the century, and will remain so for decades, likely. There is a myriad of collectible items for sale. Mementos that will help recall the days up to the wedding and the actual event. But what better to own than a DVD of the event? These will surely become as precious as the Lady Di related DVDs/CDs. The torch has finally been passed. The world watches William and Kate. Let's face it, around the world, all take notice of the British monarchy--forever. It will be so 100 years from now. Own a piece of history.

And who better to produce the filmed record of such a wonderful event? The BBC is relentless for great TV production. This is a no risk purchase, and Amazon is providing such a discount that it is a value for sure. Best buy 2, because when your friends find out you own a copy, they will be borrowing.

Family friendly, historical, beautiful, and BBC enchanting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed May 25, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had seen the BBCA Highlights of the Wedding...I was hoping the DVD would add the Drive-Away with the Astin Martin and add the view of her father lifting her veil...it did neither...otherwise it was a lovely DVD of the wedding starting with Wills leaving his father's house and ending with "the kisses"...just wished it was more complete...

BBC coverage was the best; however, too much was deleted causing hiccups in the sound especially during wedding ceremony--very disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars THE Wedding June 1, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Since I am an avid Royals watcher, I was most anxious to get this DVD of THE wedding. I was sorely disappointed as I had wanted more background of all the 'Goings On'! This is a simplified edition of the day with very little commentary. On the day of the wedding, I watched the TLC channel and heard all their insights and extraneous information they had on this spectacle. They said her lace had been specially woven,just for her as I would have expected!, at Hampton Court! And yet the BBC commentator wondered if indeed the lace on Catherine's dress was Brussels Lace. The BBC should have done more homework for the event....hardly would the future Queen of England have 'foreign' lace on her wedding dress! If you are into vintage cars, this is the DVD for you! They go into quite a lot of detail about each of the cars that transported them to the wedding. They also were very detailed about the various carriages that returned them to Buckingham Palace. I was just interested in a more details of that splendid day. Well, as I say this, how am I to know if I know any more now than what I saw that day! This DVD was a bit disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK, but where is the blu-ray? June 2, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a good DVD rendition of the event, but not as good as the HiDef TV broadcast. These pictures are not crystal clear. The sound is only 2 channels. Why can't somebody release a true HiDef, widescreen, 5.1 DTS Blu-Ray?

3.0 out of 5 stars Where is the extra footage???? June 22, 2011
By AC
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great dvd - HOWEVER, there was no footage of the bride and groom driving off to Clarence House in the Aston Martin car - SO DISAPPOINTING!!!!!! It was one of the loveliest parts of the day. Also, given that this is the BBC, there should have been some news footage of the two princes greeting the crowds the night before the wedding and there are bits missing from the ceremony,such as when the father of the bride lifted her veil, lovely moment, again, not on the dvd. WHY NOT?????? They could have made this a 2 disc dvd and had the BBC news footage from the day before, day of the wedding and also the day after when the newlyweds got in a helicopter to fly off for a private weekend. It is a nice dvd but could have been so much better!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful keepsake of a glorious day! May 25, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I stayed up and watched the wedding broadcast live. This BBC video has captured all the highlights and more. It also has a special feature on the courtship and engagement of Will & Kate. Excellent video. I'm really happy with it. I preordered this video when it was $5.99. Amazon has reduced the price to $4.99 so they have given me a $1.00 refund. Great service! Thank you, Amazon!
