William & Catherine: A Royal Romance

Hallmark, Aug. 27, 9 p.m. ET/PT |


This portrait of Prince William’s courtship of Kate Middleton is better than April’s plucky Lifetime movie: It captures the sense that being a Windsor must include long stretches of disenchantment. William (Dan Amboyer) often mopes in front of the telly, taking to heart old interviews of Diana (played by Lesley Harcourt with the appropriate air of aggrievement). Alice St. Clair’s Kate is unaffectedly girlish and as bland as an eraser, but still someone you could take home to the palace.
