|Then & Now: Royal Weddings ~ Victoria & Albert|
in The Young Victoria film and William & Kate in real-life.
If you're not watching or not into royal weddings, perhaps you're into movies involving the Royals, right? Well, I have some movie recommendations (in royalty genre) for you here in honor and celebration of William & Kate's wedding today. Some of these movies are related to or descendants to Prince William and his Royal family (ie. The Young Victoria, The King's Speech, and The Lost Prince to name a few) as well as his late mother, Princess Diana (her great-great aunt Georgiana Spencer, the Duchess of Devonshire in the film, The Duchess).
