CHARLES: (spoken)
What if I'm simply not certain?
I mean, were you certain when you married?

ELIZABETH:
He got down on one knee
Yes, he did it properly
And well, that was it for me
But love evolves and bends
And men take other friends
It doesn't mean devotion ends

Love's not what you expect
Love rarely is direct
Love changes every day
Well...
Whatever love means anyway

CHARLES: (spoken)
So, then...

(sung)
I could gеt down on one knee
And do it properly
And ask you to marry me

DIANA: (spoken)
Did you just— Is this a proposal?

CHARLES: (spoken)
Wеll, it is

DIANA: (spoken)
Oh, my God

CHARLES:
I'd guard you from that bloody mess
Known as the British press
Well, that's it...
More or less

DIANA: (spoken)
What a terrible proposal

CHARLES:
And though you're just-

DIANA: (spoken)
Nineteen

CHARLES: (spoken)
Thank you

(sung)
Someday you'll be crowned Queen
The loveliest queen we've ever seen

Though it happened fast
This feeling unsurpassed
Our affection grows
Day by day

A fairy tale formalized
A nation mesmerized
Let's put our fantasy
On full display

DIANA: (spoken)
And you're truly in love with me?

CHARLES: (spoken)
I am

(sung)
Whatever love means anyway

CAST:
Whatever love means anyway
Anyway

CHARLES:
Say the word, and I'll stop it now

CAMILLA:
But the girl is quite the "wow"
I'm sure that she will satisfy

CHARLES: (spoken)
And we're certain?

CAMILLA:
We found one young and pure
Somehow, you will endure
When you get bored, just come on by

You do your duty
For your country and your honor

CHARLES:
You do your duty
For your country and your honor

BOTH:
I often think happiness is a luxury

CAST:
Was there ever
A greater tabloid tale?

She was common, she was dim
She was far from worthy of him
A fairytale about to turn grim
Diana, Diana

PAUL: (spoken)
I've been assigned to take care of you,
m'lady, if you'll come with me?

DIANA: (spoken)
But I must go back to my flat

PAUL: (spoken)
Impossible, it's engulfed in photographers

(sung)
The queen and prince decree
That you must follow me
We'll keep the outside world at bay

DIANA: (spoken)
But my kindergarten class,
I didn't even say goodbye

PAUL: sung]
Behind these noble gates
Your palace staff awaits
For safety's sake, let's lock you away

CAST:
A fairytale formalized
A nation mesmerized
Could they be more in love
Than they are today?

Love took us by surprise
(You do your duty for your country and your honor)
Happiness in disguise
(Duty for your country and your honor)
Could they be more in love
Than they are today?

Whatever love means
Whatever love means

CAMILLA:
Whatever love means
Anyway

CHARLES:
So love evolves and bends

CAMILLA:
And men take other friends

BOTH:
It doesn't mean devotion ends

[Thanks to Harman for lyrics]
