Wills-Kate romance to get movie treatment

London: American TV network Lifetime is all set to make a film about the romance between Prince William and Kate Middleton.

The movie’s producers said it would chart "the ups and downs of their nine-year courtship complicated by social and royal family pressures".

It is likely to be aired in the week before the royal wedding on 29 April, reports a news channel.

Lifetime said the movie would chronicle the couple’s history "from the moment the two students met at Scotland’s prestigious University of St Andrews".

The network said it would also address the "intense global media attention surrounding their storybook nuptials".
