Product Description

How did Kate Middleton, an ordinary British girl, come to be Prince William s intended? Over an eight-year courtship, her warmth, humor, and grace under pressure convinced him she was the one. From University to the altar...this is the true life making of a Princess.

They ve charmed the world with their romantic love affair, engagement and eagerly awaited royal wedding. The Lifetime Original Movie WILLIAM & KATE tells the story of Prince William (Nico Evers-Swindell, NCIS: Los Angeles, Law & Order) and Kate Middleton (Camilla Luddington, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, The Defenders), from the moment they met at the University of St. Andrews to the intense media attention surrounding their storybook romance. William & Kate also stars Ben Cross (Chariots of Fire) as Prince Charles, Serena Scott-Thomas (The World Is Not Enough) as Carole Middleton, Richard Reid (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone) as Ian and Victoria Tennant (L.A. Story) as Celia.

The royal love story of Prince William and comely commoner Kate Middleton captured the hearts of the world, and the Lifetime movie William & Kate takes viewers deep inside the relationship. William & Kate is well acted and no expense was spared to re-create key parts of Scotland and England as a lush backdrop to this modern-day fairy tale. William is played quite competently by Nico Evers-Swindell, and conveys just the right amount of the reserve and wry humor the prince is known for. Camilla Luddington plays Middleton, and her performance is spunky and appealing. The story starts at the beautiful campus of St. Andrews in Scotland, where William and Kate share classes and become friends--Middleton not particularly intimidated by the prince's title, and thinking there's no chance for a romance with a commoner, anyway. So they become good friends, and the rest unfolds as the viewer knows--but with detail and charm added to make the story all the more real. As with any based-on-a-true-story film, William & Kate lends itself to the second-guessing of casting. But both Evers-Swindell and Luddington, though not doppelgängers for William and Kate, look enough like their real-life counterparts to be quite believable. However, Ben Cross (Chariots of Fire) is simply too distractingly handsome to be very believable as Prince Charles. Viewers keep having to remind themselves that handsome guy is Prince Charles, which does take away from the flow of William & Kate. But for fans of the Royal Family, history buffs, and lovers of a sweet modern-day fairy tale, William & Kate makes for splendid viewing indeed. --A.T. Hurley

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes you love Will & Kate even more! September 14, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've seen another "version" of the royal couple's lives in their earlier years and I very much love this more. This one seems to be more believable and alive. The actors were absolutely fantastic (with a British accent) along with a very well written storyline. Even Ben Cross's depiction of the Royal Prince Charles seemed lifelike. His portrayal with the mannerism was superb. It felt this was how Prince Charles really acted in real life. I don't mind watching this movie time & time again.

5.0 out of 5 stars WATHCED OVER AND OVER August 15, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If your looking for a real good romance. This will make you cry! I loved it. With the time they had to toss this movie together I think they did a great job. One of my favorites. Sure there is some guessing in there but it makes alot of sense and makes you come to know and love the couple. I even like the couple in the movie more than the true William and Kate. All in all great movie great DVD no problems. If your interested in this movie I'd say take the chance. I loved it.

This movie is largely based on conjecture so viewers need to get past the sugary sappy romance emotion to see why this movie is a gem rather than taking jabs at the "feminist" movement and such and looking for anything political here. It tells it's own version of events leading up to the engagement of William and Kate...IT IS A ROMANCE story--period. It is not meant to illustrate historical fact and such but to entertain--and that it does.

Nico was great as Prince William but I didn't feel that Ms. Luddington fared as well in her portrayal of Kate Middleton simply because there were times that her accent appeared to sound incorrect. The best scene in the whole movie was between Ben Cross and Nico where Diana was being discussed. Furthermore, Cross made the prince look pretty darned good--right down to the expressions in scenes where the media had their "fun" and the cufflink twirl. I feel that that scene alone between Cross and Nico is worth a nod at award time--even though nobody knows if this conversation ever really happened.

Once again, Ben Cross delivers in a role and he doesn't let down the audience. Hopefully, when "A Common Man" is released later this year (where he stars with Sir Ben Kingsley), he will finally get the respect and recognition for his work that he truly deserves.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awful, but so addicting August 16, 2011
Format:DVD
This movie is exactly what one would expect from Lifetime.
I, however, have royal fever, and am absolutely delighted by this film. The acting is off-and-on (think Harry in the Philosopher's Stone-- "Why didn't I see it befor!?") and the first half is pretty dull.
I can't say what draws me to it, but every day at the gym I start the film and hop on the treadmill. It keeps me entertained--especially those lovely bits like "I insist on organic"; "I love the public you; I love the private you; and I love the you that nobody gets to see but me"; it goes on and on!

Set your standards low and pull out a large bottle of wine. Lovely!

5.0 out of 5 stars So Dumb but So Addictive April 4, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What is it about the Royals that is so fascinating? Why do we feel compelled to get up at 4:00 a.m. to watch a wedding when we live in a Republic for goodness sake??!!! I have absolutely no idea...but yes, I watched the royal wedding too with the millions of others around the world. And, I'm so glad that I did. Anyhoo...this movie is really quite stupid but for some really bizarre reason, I just love to watch this especially when I want to see something for pure entertainment. This is just great -- everytime it would air on Lifetime I would watch it while my man just rolled his eyes!!! I know, I know....it's dumb but I love it. So there. I agree with the other reviewers...pop it in the dvd and get yourself a big bottle of red wine -- cozy up in front of the tele and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars great movie May 6, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am one of the few women in the US that could've cared less about the wedding. Although I did end up watching some of it on the actual day. I don't have cable either but saw this movie at my mom's house. I also am very picky about what movies I buy. This is really a great movie but I think it makes it better to be based on a true story. I can't wait to get it. I pray the couple will have much happiness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but definitely delight May 28, 2011
Format:DVD
I didn't expect much out of the movie originally --- this is a light-hearted movie for the royal romance. All the basic facts are there and the main actress I think did a great job representing Kate.

Basically I enjoyed watching this movie and don't think it is as bad as the critics panned it to be.
