I can't see the point in airing a TV programme named "William & Kate: the Love Story", unless it is conceived as a money-making effort.

The Windsor family have always been a family of servicemen/ -women. And I suspect they always will. It goes with being part of the British Royal Family, and also being the figurehead of the Commonwealth.

Against this background, the "younger Royals" are having to tread a careful path between forging their own lives (university, career etc.) and being media personalities.

Already, the marriages of Andrew, Anne and Charles have had to be sacrificed on the altar of mediatisation.
I hope and pray that the younger generation will learn from these events and try to carve out some way of living.

Too soon. TLC should've waited for an engagement announcement.

"William And Kate" (April 2011) - TV film from US network Lifetime
 
"William And Kate"

"Unknown British actress Camilla Luddington has been cast as Kate Middleton in a planned movie about the royal wedding. Luddington, 27, will star in the television film about the royal romance being made by US TV network Lifetime. She has previously had minor roles in American shows including Days Of Our Lives and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

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.' "

This movie has the makings of just being too cheesy for words....like the Charles and Diana and Charles and Camilla movies that were made.

Nonetheless, I am afraid I will be watching it. A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do:flowers:

Royal Fan 02-02-2011 02:26 PM

ThePrincessRoyal 02-02-2011 03:18 PM

Have watched all the movies of Prince Charles and Princess Diana. I'm assuming this movie will be aired after the wedding as 4 months wouldn't be enough time to do a movie. I will be watching the movie when it comes out.

The son of one of the Queen's top staff has landed a key role in a new Lifetime film about the romance and marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
British actor Richard Reid, whose father is the Queen's chief accountant Sir Alan Reid, is set to portray the role of Marcus, a character believed to be loosely based on William's best friend Guy Pelly.

HAHA.

Wigs were out of our budget so I just play William with a little more hair | Mail Online

At 6ft 5in, her Prince is so tall Kate has to stand on a crate to kiss him. None of the cast has left LA - and the Scottish Highlands are the Hollywood Hills. It's the naffest Royal movie ever made - and the Mail on Sunday was given a toe-curling peek behind the scenes...

It will be funny to watch this movie...

I'm looking forward to seeing the movie. Just tell me when it's being aired and I'll be watching.

Royally Wedding film review: Prince William and Kate Middleton movie slated by critics | Mail Online

Royally ridiculous: "William & Kate - The Movie" is slated by critics but may end up being a cult classic

16 April 2011
There are already hundreds of tacky Royal wedding memorabilia on sale - but a made-for-TV film telling the story of William and Kate's romance could trump the lot in the bad-taste stakes. The critics say it's so bad, it's good - and it could even have the royal couple themselves reaching for the popcorn for a viewing.

However, they might be watching some scenes through their fingers, because director Mark Rosman didn't exactly make accuracy his number one priority.

The acting is described as wooden - or worse.Movie critics have given the film an damning verdict, and have certainly not minced their words. 'So bad it's awful, toe-curlingly, teeth-furringly, pillow-bitingly ghastly,' said The Guardian newspaper. Andrew Billen writing in The Times says the movie is 'glorious kitsch' that's 'too ridiculous to offend'. American critics have lambasted it, too, describing it as one of the cheesiest movies ever made.

I got a feeling it will be cliche,chessy,and sterotypical in other words,another Lifetime movie.

EmpressRouge 04-17-2011 01:48 PM

I think this might make my "so bad it's actually funny to watch" list along with The Prince and Me 2.
"Much is made in the film of the unlikelihood that William would ever marry a commoner." Only they forget that Diana, Sarah and the Queen Mum were all technically commoners, as in not royal, and that girl in the trailer tells Kate "Royals marry royals."
