Actress Camilla made headlines the world over after she was plucked from obscurity to play the role of Kate Middleton in a US TV movie about Kate and Will’s romance. William & Kate told the story of the royal couple from the day they first met up to and including the big day. It was aired in the US in April 2011, 11 days before the real big day, amidst the height of international royal wedding fever.
Camilla’s hometown is actually just a short drive from where Kate grew up. She studied at a posh all-girls school, then at TASIS England- an independent American school in Surrey. She went on to Oxford University before relocating to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. Prior to landing the dream role of Kate, Camilla had appeared in an episode of CSI:Crime Scene Investigation and an episode of Days of Our Lives.
So how did Camilla enjoy getting to dress up like a future princess and snog Prince William (well, sort of)? She confessed that getting to wear the kind of outfits that are fit for a future queen left her feeling depressed at the state of her own wardrobe!
Since William & Kate, Camilla has gone on to bag a part in the fifth season of hit US comedy-drama Californication, starring alongside David Duchovny (phhwoar!)
