this was originally a 1993 mini-movie for Sky tv, and i remembered watching it so had to buy the dvd - based on andrew mortons book, it is an entertaining film version - laughable at times!!!, but a good portrayal of the book. certainly watch it expecting to raise a laugh or two, and the casting is slightly odd, although david thewlis does an excellent prince charles! if you need a dvd to wile away 2 hours or so,and want to have a chuckle at the supposed lookalike actors (and laugh at kristin scott thomas's awful diana wig at the end) buy it!!!!
