US TV to make film on royal romance

A film is to be made in honour of the forthcoming marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

American television network Lifetime is in the preparation stages of creating a TV movie about the couple's courtship and romance.

A relatively unknown actor, Nico Evers-Swindell, is to play the Prince. William's father, the Prince of Wales, will be played by British Star Trek actor Ben Cross, but the role of the soon-to-be princess is yet to be cast.

The description of the film, issued by the creators, reads: "The film chronicles the history of William and Kate - from the moment the two students met at Scotland's 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."

It is thought the film, William And Kate, will be aired in the US a week before the real wedding on April 29.

Meanwhile, presenter Cat Deeley is set to bring a group of royal wedding fanatics from America to London for a new show.

The British presenter, who has made a name for herself in the US, has signed a deal to film the two-part Royally Mad programme, a BBC America spokeswoman said.

The show will see Deeley become a tour guide and treat four fans to a royal-themed journey around London.
