William & Kate will make its world premiere on Monday, April 18, at 9:00 pm ET/PT. The movie tells the story of how the friendship between Prince William (Nico Evers-Swindell), second in line to the throne of the British monarchy, and future princess Kate Middleton (Camilla Luddington), 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 they 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.
