    The film draws effectively on the power of two seductive performances--those of Nico Evers-Swindell as William and of Camilla Luddington as Kate Middleton....It's a familiar story and an entertaining one.

    A TV Movie that's the royal-family version of an Archie comic. [22/29 Apr 2011, p.89]

    If the movie had gone all-out camp, it could have been a classic. If it had gone all-out cheesy, we could mock it more mercilessly. As is, William & Kate is as benign as the actual couple.

    The silly, very romantic movie pretends to tell the whole truth about the meeting, mating, splitting and reconnecting of Kate and William.

    William & Kate is designed almost entirely as an opening act to the real wedding, a short guide to the players. It succeeds simply by not giving anyone a single reason to believe W&K won't live happily ever after.

    A paint-by-the-numbers biopic with the dramatic vitality of a tree stump.

    If the makers of William & Kate had loaded up their movie with higher-octane performances, and if they'd aimed for more humor, flash, and cynicism, they might have come up with a more engaging piece of camp. Instead, they deliver a royally forgettable bit of banality.
