William & Kate: The Movie

William & Kate: The Movie Information

William & Kate: The Movie is the first of two unrelated American television films about the relationship between Prince William and Catherine "Kate" Middleton (now The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge), directed by Mark Rosman and written by Nancey Silvers. The film was a ratings success, despite the negative reception from critics. The second film William & Catherine: A Royal Romance was produced by the Hallmark Channel and released in August 2011.

Produced by Lifetime, the filming of William & Kate took place mostly in Los Angeles, with some second unit location filming in the United Kingdom, and the release date was 18 April 2011. This came eleven days before the wedding of William and Catherine on 29 April 2011.

Kate Middleton is played by Camilla Luddington, an English-born actress, while the part of William was taken by Nico Evers-Swindell, a New Zealander.

The film received negative reviews, with The Guardian calling it "awful, toe-curlingly, teeth-furringly, pillow-bitingly ghastly", the Daily Mirror saying it "contains moments so royally ridiculous they could only have occurred in the mind of a third-rate script writer" and the London Evening Standard saying its only positive was that "it is recognisably a film, in that it takes place on a screen. Events run in a forward direction.". The film has also been criticised for its use of American actors, for some of its images, and for first unit filming taking place in the United States. The Daily Mail reviewed the film under the headline "We are a little amused: U.S. network airs first trailer of cheesy TV movie about Prince William and Kate Middleton".
