She's is not a princess, but she'll play one on TV. Not a bad second option.
Lifetime, which announced in January that it was planning a film about Prince William and Kate Middleton's long road to marriage, to be aired around the time of the Royal Wedding on April 29th, have finally found the Kate half of their 'William & Kate': actress Camilla Luddington.
Deadline.com reports that the channel has settled on the English actress who, coincidentally, is from Berkshire County in England, as is the real Middleton. Luddington has experience with cable movies, as she's starring in an upcoming Hallmark Channel film, 'Accidentally In Love.' She's also appeared in 'CSI.'
She'll fake a royal wedding with Nico Evers-Swindell, who was already announced as William. Luddington attended Oxford University.
Here's the original press release announcing the film:
William & Kate tells the story of how the friendship between Prince William, second in line to the throne of the British monarchy, and future princess Kate Middleton, 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 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. William & Kate also stars Ben Cross as Prince Charles.
William & Kate will be produced by the Konigsberg Company, with Frank Konigsberg (Lifetime's Sex & Lies in Sin City, Lifetime Movie Network's Lies in Plain Sight) serving as executive producer. Mark Rosman (Greek, Ghost Whisperer) will direct the screenplay by Nancey Silvers (Lifetime's Sundays at Tiffany's and Girl, Positive).
