Love is in the air at Lifetime, which will air a made-for-TV-film about the engagement and romance of Prince William and Kate Middleton next month, reports The Telegraph.

The movie, titled “William and Kate”, will explore the couple’s meeting and long-term courtship. Middleton and Prince William met at the University of St. Andrews, where they were flatmates. British actress Camilla Luddington will portray Middleton and New Zealand’s Nico Evers-Swindell stars as Prince William.

“I wasn’t prepared for the media circus but it’s helped me get into character because now I understand what Kate went through with William,” Luddington said.

As she plays Middleton, Luddington will fulfill her childhood dream of becoming a princess and dating Prince William.

“I always wanted to be a princess,” Luddington said. “I had the biggest crush on Prince William when I was younger…I was one of those tragic girls who was thinking, ‘If I just saw him, he would know… Camilla, you’re the girl!'”

According to The Telegraph, the film starts with the two then-students’ first meeting at their Scotland college, and follows them through the highs and lows of their nine-year relationship.

The film will premiere on Lifetime on April 18, just eleven days before Prince William and Middleton’s scheduled Westminster Abbey wedding.
