Be honest, just how excited are you when there's an impending royal wedding? Do you find that it's kind of all you think about? Do you get worried that you might be just a wee bit obsessed? Well, if you do, don't worry about it. As Dr. Sudeepta Varma, a psychiatrist and clinical assistant professor at NYU's Langone Medical Center, told writer Caroline Bologna, "We are fascinated and obsessed with fairy tales. They have been a part of our society's fabric since childhood. They help us escape from the everyday mundane." Whatever the reason for it, if you're looking for even more royal wedding fun now that Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have finally tied the knot, we've got you covered with this guide to royal romance in the movies.
It may be hard to believe, but long before Eugenie and Jack, Harry and Meghan, and even before the ancient days of Prince William and Kate Middleton, there were actually a lot of films that combined the ideas of romance and royalty. Sometimes the romance was strictly between royals, but more often than not, they dealt with one royal getting involved with a member of the commonfolk and having to overcome incredible odds to be together. We don't think it's spoiling anything to say that they usually did.
These films from over the years range from options like Disney's Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast, to classics that starred true Hollywood royalty like Audrey Hepburn, historical dramas taking you back to the days of Queen Victoria, biopics looking at the romance of William and Catherine, and full-blown musicals like The King and I.
Whether you believe in princes and princesses and happily-ever-afters, you'll find whatever you're looking for right here. Take a look below to see if your favorite royal wedding movie made the cut!
