Lifetime Already Working On the Prince William–Kate Middleton Movie

Lifetime has fast-tracked the TV movie William & Kate, which will star Nico Evers-Swindell as Prince William and Ben Cross as Prince Charles. The role of Kate Middleton has not yet been cast. They're not even married yet, you say! But, "the movie will chronicle the love affair between the mismatched couple (he's royalty, she's the daughter of commoners) ... through the ups and downs of their courtship complicated by social pressures." Indeed, a handsome prince meets an upper-middle-class beauty at St. Andrews and proposes nine years later? Truly the stuff of Shakespearean forbidden-love stories. [TV Guide]
