WORDS AND IMAGES : Royal Escapades : Look-alike actors portray Charles and Di, Fergie and Andrew in a twin-pack video depicting palace shenanigans.

March 11, 1993|FRANCES HALPERN | SPECIAL TO THE TIMES

Let's face it. We all love a bit of gossip and scandal. Who isn't willing to lend an ear when neighborhood or workplace tales about some peculiar "goings-on" surface? And an entire industry thrives on gossip about the rich and famous.

Therefore, Turner Home Entertainment has just issued two big-budget videos, "Charles & Diana: A Palace Divided" and "Fergie & Andrew: Behind the Palace Doors." The look-alike actors who portray the royals deliver "solid, intelligent performances," according to a critic. You can observe the young Windsors cavorting in unseemly fashion in a twin-pack video priced at $139 for the set.
