So TV wants to remind you that there are royals. And they're getting married. And they're fascinating! And related to other famous people! Here's a rundown of just a few of the wedding-themed programs leading up to the big day. JORDAN BARTEL, B

William & Kate
9 p.m. Monday, Lifetime
Leave it to Lifetime to strike first! An original movie about the couple's 10-year semi-rocky romance? With people who sort-of look like the couple (left)? We're in.

20/20: William & Catherine: A Modern Fairytale
10 p.m. Monday, WMAR/ABC
Calling her Catherine? Classy move, "20/20." And super-cute childhood photos to boot!

Royal Wedding of a Lifetime
11 p.m. Monday, Lifetime
Settling for a fictionalized version? Not Lifetime's style. But this six-part documentary (which runs through Friday) does seem a tad unsubstantial. Why not seven parts? Or better yet, eight?

Charles and Di: Once Upon a Time
7 p.m. Sunday, TLC
Once upon a time, a king-to-be pretended to be in love with an awesome person. OK, to be fair, this is just about their happy 1981 wedding.

Untold Stories of a Royal Bridesmaid

9 p.m. Sunday, TLC
Contrary to popular belief, they really, really hate carrying dress trains.

Wild About Prince Harry
10 p.m. April 25, TLC
Aww. We can't forget about little (more attractive) bro.

William & Kate: Inside the Royal Wedding
8 p.m. April 27, WBAL/NBC
Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira are accepting your RSVPs.
