Terrible

The honeymoon is definitely over for Charles and Diana; she's bored, frustrated, and lonely. Then she meets a handsome army captain who becomes her riding instructor and then, her lover. Five years later, they part under sad circumstances.

This made-for-TV movie is really awful. No attempt was made to make the actors look anything like their famous counterparts; Diana doesn't have her trademark hairstyle (or any sense of style at all), Hewitt, Fergie, and Prince Harry aren't redheads, and Charles is a head taller than Diana. Both the trite script and the unconvincing actors are to blame for a total lack of chemistry between the lovers; everyone in the cast has the personality of a wet rag, giving the movie a completely lackluster quality.

There are some beautiful, grand houses and sets as backdrops, but the story is tawdry and surprisingly tedious. It's based on a book to which Hewitt was a major contributor, so of course, he comes out a hero while Diana is an emotional mess. Not recommended.

Sounds like they couldn't have made it any less accurate! As a Princess Diana fan, it sounds like a drag of a movie. Thanks for your review!
