With her long, lustrous locks, peaches-and-cream complexion and pretty hazel eyes, Camilla Luddington could easily be mistaken for Kate Middleton's sister.
The likeness is such that the young actress – whose previous credits include US crime show CSI and a short film about zombies – has been cast as the princess-to-be in a movie about the royal romance.
William and Kate, to be screened shortly before the big day on April 29, follows the story of the couple's courtship from the moment their paths crossed as students at St Andrews University.
Camilla, 26, who beat hundreds of hopefuls to the part, won't have too much trouble familiarising herself character's origins.
She grew up in Berkshire a few miles from Kate, 29, and was educated at the equally prestigious Oxford University.
New Zealander Nico Evers-Swindell will play the groom William. Meanwhile, Chariots of Fire actor Ben Cross has apparently been lined up to play Prince Charles.
Her sister told The Sun: "Camilla is very excited.
"She has always followed the royal family and never dreamt she'd be in a movie about them."
