If You Love England and Wills and Kate, Watch This!,
This review is from: Prince William & Kate: The Royal Romance (DVD)
As a Princess Diana fan, it has been fun to watch William grow up and embody the best qualities of his mother, father and grandmother Queen Elizabeth. It seems no one can find fault with his choice of a queen-to-be. With Royal Jubilee week this past week, it was fun to watch scenes of England. If you want to see more of Britain, this fun little DVD takes you to the haunts of William and Kate and explains their history, how and where they met (at St. Andrews), and their engagement/wedding planning details. Royal insiders share their thoughts about the couple and their plans, so if you like that sort of thing, and I do, this is a bit of fun and froth. There's not a lot of detail, but this is a warm-hearted overview of the couple. So, wouldn't expect much more than you've seen before in still photos, occasional interviews etc. if you are Royal watchers. This film ties it all together and probably best watched on a rainy or cool night with a bowl of popcorn for a girl's night in.
I thoroughly enjoyed this romance-friendship story on film--you can stream it from Netflix for free if you don't need to own it--and I learned some facts about the couple I hadn't known. Speculation on Catherine's dress designer for the wedding in this film was entertaining. In retrospect it seems obvious that Catherine might choose a designer named McQueen. There was a picture of Catherine's mother in front of Bruce Oldfield's design shop, and he did design Catherine's mother's gown which resembled dresses Diana used to wear.
The film did re-show a lot of the same video of Catherine as a single woman walking down a street when they talked about her, but since there was legal action taken regarding photographing and filming her by the Royal Family when Prince William was dating her, there probably wasn't much video available so it's understandable they showed the same footage over and over.
If you're a Royal Family and Prince William, Harry and Catherine fan, you should enjoy this charming film. And there's some lovely scenery of England and Scotland as backdrop as an added pleasure.
