‘The film chronicles the history of William and Kate – from the moment the two students met at Scotland’s prestigious University of St Andrews, through the ups and downs of their nine-year courtship complicated by social and Royal Family pressures, and intense global media attention surrounding their storybook nuptials,’ reads a synopsis.
