Royal Wedding poll: Which plot point from Lifetime's 'William & Kate' do you most wish was true?


Image Credit: Jack Zeman/Lifetime

It happened: Just six days ahead of Friday’s Royal Wedding, I found myself flipping channels Saturday night at my parents’ house, landing on Lifetime’s William & Kate right as Kate Middleton fled Prince William’s 21st birthday party. (He had invited another young woman up to help him blow out the candles.) “I’m the girl he hangs out with, not the one he brings home,” Kate said to her trailing friends, echoing the snooty mean girl who’d just assured her that William wouldn’t have time to socialize with his flatmate (who he was secretly sleeping with) at this public event. And with that, I was sucked in — not only to the rest of the movie but also to the repeat so I could see what I’d missed. You can watch William & Kate, “inspired by true events,” online now. SPOILER ALERT! The most ridiculous plot points make our poll below.

    oh how i can’t wait to watch this trash when i get home

  • Shannon

    I had planned on avoiding this movie (and all the repeats), but after reading these ridiculous plot points, I’m definitely going to have to check it out!

      I might even watch it on demand so I don’t have to wait for another repeat (even though it is airing like every 15 mins)

  • Bug

    Not having seen this, I would guess that the “spare” comment actually is true. I seem to recall reading in interviews Diana herself calling Harry “the spare” repeatedly. It was her “pet name” for him, which I always thought was sort of cruel.

    • Stacie

      Who wants an heir when you can have the spare?

      • Logistics

        Exactly. All the perks of dating the king, none of the responsibility.

      • sunssetsnow81

        Definitely the spare.

    • Sina

      and he looks 400x better than the hairless king.

      • Kat

        Awww, that’s just mean. Nothing wrong with a man losing his hair. Sure, William’s a bit young for that, but who really cares?

  • JackieB

    Can anyone speak to whether or not these plot points are true? I mean isn’t it true that he saw her out and about in the tabloids and got jealous?

    • Kelly

      The fact William can’t cook seems true; he said as much in the engagement interview.

  • Sparky

    I swore I wouldn’t watch any of the million and one programs about the Royal Wedding but I gave in and watched this movie. The most annoying thing about it was their accents and just how over the top cheesyness of the entire movie. Can’t wait till this whole thing is finally over…

  • Di

    It was ridiculous fun. I’m ashamed to say that I got sucked into it too

  • megslin

    the tabloid one by most accounts IS true…the rest…not so much.

  • Sara

    Wait…he didn’t really sing karaoke to her???!!!!

  • Logistics

    I nearly peed my pants laughing during the bathtub scene.

  • a

    I have to choose just one!? I got the worst secondhand embarrassment I have ever gotten from a t.v. movie watching this thing..

  • Caryn

    I got sucked into this movie too Mandi! I died laughing at the karaoke–it was almost as good as when he told her he wanted some space and she stormed out of the car–as the security detail was behind them. BAHAHAH.
    But in all seriousness, I felt terrible for Kate in this movie-they made her look like she just waited around for him. And the proposal was so corny!

    • bb

      that’s why they call her “Kate-y Wait-y” in the British tabloids. She just waited around for him…

  • Nerwen Aldarion

    It was cheesy, cliche and completely inaccurate…which is why it was a lot of fun to watch!

  • Kaiulani

    Wasn’t going to watch and now I will check it out as a rerun.

  • Mrsb918

    guilty pleasure of the week. It cracked me up, especially the ridiculous accents.

  • J. Davis

    I haven’t seen a made for TV movie that was so Made For TV quality since the 70s.
