William & Kate: The Lifetime Movie!
Welcome to our Ten Days ‘Til The Royal Wedding coverage. For the next ten days, we’ll be bringing you wedding-related content in honor of the upcoming nuptials of Prince William of Wales and his fiancee Catherine “Kate” Middleton on April 29. Grab a bouquet and a cute groomsmen and enjoy!
Just how to you get a prince to propose to you? That’s the question Lifetime’s newest docudrama William & Kate: Let Love Rule tries to answer tonight. The movie is “inspired” by the true events that led his Royal Highness to fall in love with a raven-haired college girl from Berkshire. Here’s what we gleamed from the film:
Pretend you don’t care he’s a prince when you first meet. That’s the approach Kate took when she first met the Prince on campus. Indeed, she had a boyfriend at the time. Being totally disinterested and unavailable is sure to make the man who gets whatever he wants take note.
Walk around in your underwear. It certainly worked for Kate who modeled a lace see-through dress at a college fashion show that William attended. According to reports and the film, it was the first time the Prince made it known that he thought Kate was “hot.”
Bring him home to your very normal family. The Prince will love how ordinary it is when he shows up dressed for a meal and everyone is still in their jammies.
Let him see what he’s missing. When the Prince decides he needs his space, use the tabloids to your advantage. Show him you’ve dried your tears, put on a sexy dress and are out enjoying life — you’re no Watie Katie for him!
And be patient. It took ten years but in the end, Kate got her man. Patience really is a virtue!
Sure, this production is high on hokeyness (did Prince William really sing a sappy love song to Kate at a karoake club? We think not!). But the telefilm’s stars, Camilla Luddington and Nico Evers-Swindell are easy on the eyes; there are lots of long looks and smooches and most importantly, a fairy-tale ending, though we’re not giving it away here!
William & Kate: Let Love Rule airs Monday, April 18 at 9 p.m. on Lifetime.
