William and Kate

"William & Kate" review by Suzanne
Premieres Monday, April 18 at 9 pm et/pt

If you like old-fashioned romantic movies, or romance novels, you should like this movie. If you are a fan of the royal family, you should really love it. It's just about how the royal heir, William, and his fiancee, Kate, got together, and the few problems they had before they got engaged.

It is not a really exciting movie. That's the problem with anything based on real can't just make stuff up to make it more exciting. It's interesting, though, to see how the other half lives, and it's a nice romantic fantasy.

I didn't really have any interest or knowledge one way or the other about the royal family, so I had no expectations either way. I enjoyed the movie, and in fact I wish it hadn't ended right after their engagement. I hope they make a sequel in the future, as long as things go well for the couple.

The actors playing William and Kate do a great job, as does Ben Cross as Prince Charles. They are both way better looking, of course, than the real couple (him especially). I look forward to seeing the actors in other roles.  The production is very well done, and the background music was very pretty, I thought.

Here's some more information:

William & Kate tells the story of how the friendship between Prince William (Evers-Swindell), second in line to the throne of the British monarchy, and future princess Kate Middleton (Luddington), the stunning daughter of upper middle-class commoners, blossomed into a romantic love affair, charming the world with their recent engagement and eagerly awaited royal wedding. The film chronicles the history of William and Kate -- from the moment they met at Scotlandís 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. William & Kate also stars Ben Cross (Star Trek, Chariots of Fire) as Prince Charles, Serena Scott-Thomas (The World Is Not Enough) as Carole Middleton, Richard Reid (Harry Potter and the Sorcererís Stone) as Derek and Victoria Tennant (L.A. Story) as Celia.

Immediately following William & Kate, Lifetime will debut the first of six one-hour episodes of the documentary series Royal Wedding of a Lifetime at 11PM ET/PT. The program will examine the history of William and Kateís romance and run-up to their wedding, comparisons of Kate to Princess Diana, the wedding gown and fashion surrounding the nuptials, cuisine for the high-profile event, a preview of the wedding day and a glimpse into their future together.
