Camilla Anne Luddington (born 15 December 1983 Ascot, Berkshire) is an English actress, notable for being cast as Catherine Middleton in the 2011 film William & Kate. She is originally from Berkshire and was educated at an all-girls’ school in Ascot, Berkshire. She later attended The American School In England at Thorpe in Surrey, completed her education at Oxford, and has since worked mainly in the United States. In February 2011, the Daily Mail described her as “on the path to fame and fortune after being cast as Kate Middleton in a planned movie about the royal wedding”. However, the Daily Telegraph reported a warning from a fellow-actor that “the royal role may not be a great career move”.
