Hallmark's 'William and Kate' Finds Kate and the Queen


The movie tells the love story of William and Kate, from their time as students at St. Andrews, his military training, their break-up, engagement and a royal advice from the Queen.

While Lifetime fast-tracked its TV movie "William & Kate" to coincide with the Royal Wedding later this month, Hallmark is taking its time to produce "William & Kate: A Royal Love Story". The Hallmark version has just found actresses to portray Kate Middleton and the Queen Elizabeth.

Emmy winner Jane Alexander is paired with newcomer Alice St. Clair as the Queen and Kate respectively. Jane is a four-time Oscar nominee for her roles in such films as "Kramer vs. Kramer" and "All the President's Men". Meanwhile, British Alice is totally new to the industry. She is repped by Gersh and TMT Entertainment.

"A Royal Love Story" would go into production on May 11 in Bucharest. It would then be premiered on August 13 at 9 P.M., just a few weeks ahead of Princess Diana's 14th death anniversary. The biopic was written by and is executive produced by Emmy-winning producer Linda Yellen, who also exec produced 1982's "The Royal Romance of Charles and Diana", which is about Prince William's parents.

Lifetime's version would premiere on Monday, April 18.
