Here are two incredible cheesy movies from 1983 about the royal romance between The Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer.
The first movie, The Royal Romance of Charles and Diana, stars Ms. Catherine Oxenberg and some other guy. It’s so bad, that it’s good.
The second movie, Charles and Diana: A Royal Love Story, stars two people I never heard of before and whose careers have basically died after they starred in this bad made-for-TV movie.
Here is the 1973 documentary entitled, Princess Anne: A Royal Romance.
