Will and Kate: The Movie.
LONDON, Thursday 24th March 2011: The Hollywood feature film that has sparked worldwide media frenzy over the last few months has finally arrived.
The story of Will & Kate’s fairy-tale romance will be released in the UK on DVD, during Royal Wedding week, by Revolver Entertainment on Monday 25th April.
Shot entirely in Los Angeles and inspired by true events, viewers are cordially invited to relive the highs and lows of the couple’s nine-year courtship: as they attempt to maintain a normal relationship despite family pressures and intense media attention. The story concludes with the ultimate ending, a picture-perfect Royal Wedding.
The movie features some of the most iconic highlights of the couple’s relationship – from the moment when the future king gallantly forked out £200 to watch Kate model in a charity catwalk show, to the first time his future bride met the Royal family, and the utterly romantic day he proposed to Kate in his beloved Africa. Every major milestone in the couple’s enchanting romance is celebrated in this truly historic ‘made for TV’ love story.
British actress Camilla Luddington stars as Miss Middleton, with New Zealand-born actor Nico Evers-Swindell as her Royal beau, Prince William. Camilla, who like her on-screen persona was also brought up in leafy Berkshire, has previously had roles in the hit American shows Days Of Our Lives and C.S.I, whilst Nico‘s credentials include Law & Order and Edge Of Darkness.
Describing her role in the most talked about Royal movie of our time; Camilla Luddington said: “Viewers are going to get a great love story. If you’re a romantic at heart you’re going to love it.”
Produced by 9-time Emmy decorated Frank Konigsberg, the film co-stars Hollywood veteran Ben Cross (Chariots of Fire) as Prince Charles, Serena Scott-Thomas (Nip/Tuck) as Kate’s mother Carole, and Samantha Whittaker (Casualty) as Kate’s best friend.
