Who says fairy tales don't come true?
William & Kate 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 a different company 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, a British-born actress, while the part of William is taken by Nico Evers-Swindell, a New Zealander.
