THE ACTOR playing Prince William in a forthcoming US film about the Royal romance said the level of interest in it gave him an insight into how the couple may be feeling.

Nico Evers-Swindell said the attention had helped him to play the part of the young prince as he prepares to wed Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey next month.

“I had an incredibly visceral sense of actually what, in a way, Will and Harry actually go through... that sense of vulnerability just hit straight away so it was quite informative from an actor’s point of view. It’s something that would take a lot of getting used to but they’ve had their lives and events good and bad in their life that they’ve dealt with.”

His co-star, Camilla Luddington said it was “an honour” to get the part of Miss Middleton. The English-born actress admitted she needed a little help from a dialect coach because her time in Los Angeles had left her with “an American accent at this point” but said her family were “so proud”.
