The trailer for William and Kate: The Movie, a made-for-tv film due to air on the US Lifetime channel in the run up  to the Royal Wedding is now available for your viewing pleasure (watch it below). And it’s already been described as “the naffest royal movie ever”.

William and Kate: The Movie, starring British actress Camilla Luddington as the future princess and New Zealand-born actor Nico Evers-Swindell as Prince William, will appear on April 18.

The production chronicles the couple’s romance from their first meeting at St Andrews University in Scotland almost a decade ago to their engagement last November and is apparently “inspired by true events”.

But the film has already drawn fire for its “cheesy” dialogue – in one scene the fictional Kate Middleon describes the Prince as “just a guy” to which her friend replies: “He’s just a guy who happens to be the future king of England”.

Others have slammed the characters’ American accents.


However Luddington told Press Association it was “an honour” to play waitey Katie and hoped that Kate and Wills would watch it.

“If it was my relationship, then I’d want to see how they portrayed us, so I hope they watch it,” she said.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are due to tie-the-knot on Friday, April 29 at Westminster Abbey.
