Description by OLDIES.com:
It's not long before they find romances and "engagements" of their own with co-stars Peter Lawford and Sarah Churchill. The tuneful Burton Lane-Alan Jay Lerner score includes the Academy Award nominated song "Too Late Now."
Flirty Ellen and dance-focused Tom have escaped the clutches of many marriage-minded partners, keeping their joint entertainment careers their first priority. When they leave New York to sail for London to open a new musical show, Ellen leaves behind many besotted men but no regrets. But when a ladies' man (and lord) falls hard for Ellen, and a British girl in the dance chorus needs Tom's help to locate her fiancé, both brother and sister realize that this time love must come first.
- First June Allyson, then Judy Garland were cast in the part of Ellen; Jane Powell became Ellen only days before shooting began.
- In "You're All the World to Me," the room in which Astaire dances and the camera filming it were put in a barrel and turned, creating the dancing-on-the-ceiling effect. The scene took only half a day to film as a result of detailed rehearsal work by Astaire and director Stanley Donen.
- Certain Americanisms were rerecorded for the British release of the film under the name WEDDING BELLS.

i love this movie to death, the dancing is faboulous and so is the music. i love every night at seven.
Royal Wedding is a classic. Fred Astaire is great in this film. I enjoyed this film immensely and if you are a Fred Astaire fan, you will too.
