A new film depicting the budding romance of Prince William and Kate Middleton is being rushed out for television viewers barely a month after the pair's fairytale wedding.

A mixture of fact and fiction, William & Kate: A Royal Love Story is expected to be released in August in the US on the Hallmark Channel.

Director Linda Yellen - who was also producer of CBS's The Royal Romance of Charles and Diana in 1982 - said the film is "a psychological story of the memory of the mother, in this case Princess Diana, and her legacy".

The film shows how William "has to choose to live his life with her memory and with the decisions he has to make," including the decision of who to marry, she added.

The couple married on April 29 in a lavish ceremony at Westminster Abbey watched by millions. Shooting on the new movie began in early May.

Yellen, who met Princess Diana three times, called the film "a very personal story".

She added: "In a way, it's my tribute to her as well as a tribute to the young couple".

British actress Alice St. Clair, who plays Kate, admitted she was "not a carbon-copy" of the newlywed.

"We were not trying to mimic her but... to show the essence of her and bring my own self into it," she revealed.

American actor Dan Amboyer, who made his debut in the Law & Order TV series, plays William.
