William and Kate: The Lifetime TV Movie

On April 18, 2011 Lifetime TV in USA debuted William and Kate.

William & Kate Movie - Official Site | myLifetime.com

What do yall think of the Movie? Personally I think this will be the first in a long line of movies about Will and Kate.


Also the actors who play in the movie don't really resemble our lovely royal family and Kate...anyways thats my opnion

The Kate has no accent and the whole movie is cheesy but it's also sort of sweet. Watched it for fun but not worth taking to seriously but it is cute knowing how in love they are...... (and it's only the begining of the movie we'll see if it gets better or worse)

My gran is watching it, though she has very limited English (we're on the phone actually, and she's giving me play-by-play, since I refuse to watch it).

Guess my post didn't get carried over?

I think it's cheesy and sweet at the same time because in real life they're so in love but it is silly/cheesy ...... Also the Kate has no accent

Edit- him singing to her? I'm embarrassed for him and I thought they weren't snapped skiing/kissing until 2004

That seems to be the general consensus on Twitter too. I can't wait to watch it.

Favorite new cheesy movie fact courtesy of @ellakaytweets: Lady Sarah Chatto's husband, Daniel, played Prince Andrew in a cheesy Charles and Diana TV movie in the '80s...

I'm getting the gist that this film is creating a sense of amusement amongst those of us who are following the characters portrayed in it (well I'm finding the film amusing, at least from what I've heard of it). It's better to take it for what it is, an attempt at entertainment, albeit a poor one.

That being said, I await a call from my grandmother so that she can resume her play-by-play commentary of this particular piece of cinematography.

This. Is. So. Bad. But I think I am going to keep it on TiVo for abit.

Where do I start with the missing....we only see Harry one time and Camilla NOT at all. Was there not enough money in the budget for this? They don't mention the Diana concert, the break up and get back together is so thrown together. The only time they mention Camilla is when supposedly William blames Charles for not protecting Diana and asking why didn't Charles marry Camilla from the get go.

Its just a mess. A bloody awful mess.

The TMobile dance video had a better Harry, William and Kate. And how come this movie's Kate talks like me...they couldn't get a British actress?

And my last catty comment for the night anyway...how cheap did that military outfit William had on look?

It was like watching a car crash unfold before you but none the less I watched the entire thing. The scene where William was singing I had to leave it was so ridiculous, Kate acting like Carrie Bradshaw with her wine and bath and the infamous "I love the you know one else gets to see". Good God!

The 6 prt royal wedding after special keeps talking about her wedding being her most surreal moment and I keep thinking yes first in a long line of moments because while many women marry, few become Queen of England so....IMO her most surreal moment to date is probably wedding, but her lifetime I bet it will be becoming Queen......I hope I'm alive to see it :)

Got the wine.. got the cheese and have the hockey game on so I missed the movie and from the general consensus here, I didn't miss much.

I'm as curious as you all are though. Does anyone have any idea if/when it will be aired again? It seems like something I'd need on a "down" day to make me laugh. I also hope that this 6 part wedding special will be aired all six episodes in a row just so I can put it on and drive Mr. Remote nuts.

The production, which will be called William And Kate, stars New Zealand-born actor Nico Evers Swindell as the prince. It is rumoured the Prince of Wales will be played by British performer Ben Cross, best known for his portrayal of the Olympic athlete Harold Abrahams in the 1981 movie Chariots of Fire.

A synopsis of the movie says: 'The film chronicles the history of William and Kate - from the moment the two students met at Scotland's prestigious University of St Andrews, through the ups and downs of their nine-year courtship complicated by social and Royal Family pressures, and intense global media attention surrounding their storybook nuptials.' "

Where do the film people get the information for such a project? It seems a bit pre-mature.

That was really, REALLY bad. Either their Kate had no accent at all (which makes no sense, since the actress IS English) or it seemed to cover every known regional accent in the same sentence.

This pretty much sums it up:

I think they said it was re-airing on Saturday. It was totally cheesy good fun. Particularly if you started to imagine them as fictional people (i.e., not William and Kate). I only buried my head in my pillow 3 or 4 times.
