The Movie, “A Royal Love Story” Showcases Wedding and More

By Jen Felegi –

It’s been all over the news.  People have been talking about it for months.  Millions watched it on television.  Now it’s a movie.

The Royal Wedding, which took place on April 29, 2011, was made into a film a month later.

William and Kate

“William & Kate: A Royal Love Story” was released this month.

Linda Yellen is the director of the film.  She was also the producer of “The Royal Romance of Charles and Diana” in 1982.

Yellen said, “William & Kate” is more than just a romance — it’s also “a psychological story of the memory of the mother, in this case Princess Diana, and her legacy.”

Yellen said, “In a way, it’s my tribute to her (Diana) as well as a tribute to the young couple.”

Actress Alice St. Clair playing Kate, and actor Dan Amboyer as William.

She met Princess Diana three times.  When Yellen lost her father, on the first day of shooting the film, she better understood some of the scenes in which William was communicating with his mother.

It all began when William had given Diana’s ring to Middleton; the story came to Yellen that instant and within two weeks she finished the script.

Dan Amboyer, who plays William, called the film, “a modern fairy tale.”

The film shares William and Kate’s developing friendship while adding tributes to the memory of Princess Diana.

This film may seem like a true fairy tale for us all.  Do not miss the film on the Hallmark Channel in August.
