BUCHAREST, Romania — Barely a month after their fairy-tale wedding, a new film depicting the budding romance of Prince William and Kate Middleton is being rushed out for television viewers.
A mixture of fact and fiction, “William & Kate: A Royal Love Story” is expected to be released in August on the Hallmark Channel.
Director Linda Yellen took some time out from filming at MediaPro Studios in Romania to speak with The Associated Press. The American was also producer of CBS’s “The Royal Romance of Charles and Diana” in 1982, a film that had a huge audience at the time.
“William & Kate” is more than a romance — it’s also “a psychological story of the memory of the mother, in this case Princess Diana, and her legacy,” Yellen said. The film shows how William “has to choose to live his life with her memory and with the decisions he has to make,” including the decision of whom to marry.
