"Movie Review": Royal Wedding (2018)


The Royal Wedding (2018) is a romance drama starring Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The much-anticipated sequel to The Royal Wedding (2011), starring Prince William and Kate Middleton, has been a long time coming with the production stuck in development.

The leads, Harry and Meghan, have excellent chemistry, delivering down-to-earth performances and generating some smouldering heat. Markle is probably best known for her role in Suits, while former child star Prince Harry has made a number of regular appearances in tabloids. While somewhat slow-moving, it's a heartfelt creation boosted by earnest performances and some fun cameos from George Clooney and David Beckham.

Somewhat eclectic, the wardrobe is largely traditional and respectable, with some quirky touches, including a fascinating array of hats among the guests.

A lively gospel choir insert and an inspirational sermon by a surprise performer cleverly counter-balance moments of stuffy stiff-collaredness. Thankfully The Royal Wedding isn't overly preachy, playing to its universal theme of love and hope. The soundtrack fits the genre perfectly without becoming overpowering with highlights including three particularly stirring cello pieces.

The Royal Wedding (2018) is a real treat, playing to its target audience's expectations of fairy tale romance with fitting decorum and elegant charm. While the production isn't in line with Disney, it's harmless and has a similar ebb-and-flow in terms of the consistency of its feel good tone.

While the car chase and action sequences are by-and-large underwhelming, they are beautifully filmed, and this production plays to its core strengths, offering an entertaining and inspiring occasion for those wanting to cherish pristine, well-to-do and historical moments of life celebrated on the world stage.
