This was a very disappointing story of Lady Di. The acting was poor, the story a lot of theories maybe mixed with some facts... A waste of time.

This movie is something to watch, if you are interested in the Lady Di saga. I've seen others that portray her better, but who really know the real Princess of Wales.

"Charles and Diana are putting up a brave front, pretending to be happily married in front of the cameras, while privately fed up with each other. She says he doesn't want to spend time with the boys; he retreats to his lover's arms for sympathy. Enter handsome, sympathetic Captain James Hewitt who becomes Diana's riding instructor, and soon they begin a torrid affair that spans years. Gradually, however, her neediness starts to stifle him and he sells his kiss-and-tell story to the media.
This could have been a much better soap-opera story, but the actors who play Diana (Julie Cox) and Charles (Christopher Bowen) are horribly miscast. She looks and acts like a high school student in a bad senior play, while he just seems to wander aimlessly through scenes. Christopher Villiers, as Hewitt, is spot-on however; he's sexy and charming and seems quite the type to sweep a young princess off her feet.
This is generally a pretty lifeless retelling of Hewitt's book; there are no sparks or surprises, no juicy-gossipy bits to titillate the viewer. There's just the sad story of a marriage that should never have been and a man who (by this account) was innocentlyly drawn in to satisfy the needs of a bored wife. Mediocre at best."

"I have watched quite a few things on Diana since her death and enjoyed watching all of them she was a very interesting woman i am very confused why she would stay in a marriage with a man like Charles he seemed like a very uncaring man."

"I found this movie very interesting. I didn't know that it existed but had read the book that came out prior to the movie. I enjoyed this movie and would recommend it to any Diana fan."
