8 Movies and TV shows that will cure your crippling post Royal Wedding blues

All good things come to an end, eventually. When you're eagerly anticipating an event - whether it's the final season of Game of Thrones, the next confounding episode of Westworld, or the wedding of a close friend - you might feel a little empty inside once it's all over. For those who were obsessive over the engagement of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, there's only so many times you can re-watch their vows or read about their lives.

However, if you want to spend a little longer immersed in the world of royalty, you can always turn to movies and television, whether it's fictional princes and princesses or fact-based dramas on the various monarchical shenanigans over the centuries.

So, have a browse through this list to see if any of these alternatives will cure those post-Royal Wedding blues.

1. The Crown

If you've somehow missed all the adverts for it on Netflix, now might be the time to learn all the ins-and-outs of the royal family, starting with Queen Elizabeth II's wedding day.

2. Marie Antoinette

Sofia Coppola's film got some criticism for playing it fast and loose with historical accuracy, but underneath that is an affecting (and surprisingly entertaining) modern take on the life of the young Queen.

3. Reign

This TV drama tells the story of Mary, Queen of Scots, with plenty of political and sexual intrigue in the treacherous world of the French court.

4. The Tudors

The Tudors delves into the reign of King Henry VIII, with plenty of big names to fill up its cast, including Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Henry Cavill, Natalie Dormer and Sam Neill.

5. Grace of Monaco

Meghan Markle wasn't the first American actor to marry into royalty, as you can discover in this film about Grace Kelly in the early 1960s. The story delves into her crisis of identity during a dispute between Monaco's Prince Rainier III and France's Charles De Gaulle, and the threat of a French invasion of Monaco.

6. A Cinderella Story

Remember Chad Michael Murray? And Hilary Duff? Have a trip down memory lane with this modern retelling of Cinderella.

7. The King's Speech

This Oscar-winning performance from Colin Firth delves into King George VI's ascension to the throne and the obstacles he has to overcome to become worthy of the role.

8. The Duchess

Keira Knightley and Ralph Fiennes star in this chronicle of Georginiana, Duchess of Devonshire, who led an extravagant personal life.

This is only scratching the surface when it comes to the regal content out there, but it's a good start - and you can always go back to YouTube to watch Meghan and Harry's ceremony for the 100th time.
