Prepare for 'Kate & William,' the Lifetime movie -- then mix it up [Poll] [Video]

March 21, 2011 |  5:18 pm


As the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton approaches, there are myriad collectibles to see and to buy. Now, for all you royals watchers, there's actually something to watch: a Lifetime movie.

"Kate & William," set to air April 18 on the cable channel, is "inspired by the true events of the royal courtship" — a courtship that apparently required the ingestion of a lot of wine. Camilla Luddington, below left, and Nico Evers-Swindell, below right, have been cast as the happy couple.

Check out the trailer above, and then join the Ministry in a little game of mix-and-match between art and life: If it were up to you, which two would be getting married? Having been pushed into a tacky mood by a quick review of royal wedding collectibles, and feeling rather ugly-American and superficial in general, we're in a mood to pair Kate with Nico, for hotness reasons. Or maybe Nico with Wills, just to stir the pot?

Your mileage may vary — please weigh in, in the poll below.
