We’ve seen plenty of photos of the real-life Prince William and Kate Middleton, who are set to wed in a media extravaganza April 29. So let’s change things up a little bit: Hitting the Web today is a photo of Lifetime’s fictional William and Kate, played by Nico Evers-Swindell and Camilla Luddington, stars of the network’s upcoming TV movie William & Kate. (What, did you expect a different title?) What can we expect from the telefilm? “We want to tell the story of how their friendship came to be and how this blossomed into a romantic love affair,” Lifetime President Nancy Dubuc tells EW. “I think the world is waiting to be charmed in the way we were charmed by Diana. We want to remind ourselves of the fantasy of being a princess or queen.”
Here’s the photo:
William & Kate premieres on Lifetime on April 18 at 9 p.m. Prepare to covet plenty of pea coats.
