  • Kimber Myers

    There’s never too much at stake for the princesses or the audience, but it makes for a fine diversion from the realities of life and history.

  • Katie Walsh

    Despite the perfunctory social commentary and retro political optimism, the film remains a lighthearted romp to its core.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Kerry Lengel

    Though there are no blazing historical insights here, the film is filled with moments of ribald humor and tender poignancy that offer glimpses into a society divided by class but united, mostly, in an outpouring of sheer, overwhelming relief.

  • Leslie Felperin

    Despite it’s entirely predictable, cliché-embracing script, executed with a shrewd mix of forelock-tugging rectitude and cheekiness by director Julian Jarrold (Brideshead Revisited, Kinky Boots), it remains an eminently watchable diversion.

  • Fionnuala Halligan

    There’s a jazzy air throughout and the sound of the dance halls resonate.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Guy Lodge

    Julian Jarrold’s brightly performed exercise in speculative history scores as a frothier, more feminine bookend to “The King’s Speech” — though it’s no less engaging or accomplished.

    Variety Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    The script, written by Trevor De Silva and Kevin Hood, falters when farce gives way to melodrama, but the movie regains momentum with a climax in a ballroom.

  • Roger Moore

    The surprises are few, and none of it am0unts to a whole lot. But for those up to taking yet another British sentimental journey to “their finest hour,” A Royal Night Out manages something unheard of in the decades of Windsor wooliness since. It makes them cute, if only for one night.

    What makes A Royal Night Out palatable are the lead performances.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Abby Garnett

    The film relies heavily on the coltish charms of its young leads, and Powley's effervescent, well-timed performance as the younger princess (she calls herself "P2") is skillful enough to bring out the screwball latencies in an otherwise bland screenplay.

  • Olly Richards

    A cheerful comedy-drama with charm to spare.

    Empire Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Of course it’s lightweight, bordering on disposable.... But it’s also genuinely warm-spirited, with three lovable central performances from Gadon, Powley and Reynor

  • Cath Clarke

    When it’s playing for laughs, ‘A Royal Night Out’ is harmless good fun.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Jamie Graham

    Jarrold struggles to sweep things along with quite enough vigour – budget constraints crowd the edge of the frame – but Gadon is intoxicating as Elizabeth.

  • Sara Stewart

    Frothy, forgettable comedy.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Steve Davis

    The characterizations are sincere, but overly familiar.

    It’s a thin, trickledown sort of fun.
