Above all this is a True Romance with all the charm and warmth you would expect from such a story.  But the handsome black law student who falls for bank clerk Ruth Williams is Seretse Khama, future king of what is now Botswana.  Everyone is against them, including Seretse’s regent uncle and neighbouring apartheid obsessed South Africa, supplier of gold and uranium to pragmatically sympathetic Britain.
