Willy Buckingham is – believe it or not – similar in many ways to Prince William. He’s as good as the royal groom and just happens to be getting married in April! So we’re following his wedding planning adventures (he calls them trials) on English Wedding alongside his fiancée Cat Muddleton.
Our alternative royal groom Willy Buckingham is 28 and lives with his dad, his brother and his grandparents. They’re quite posh.
Willy has an enormous extended family, who are always getting into scrapes and having adventures. He studied art history and geography at university then did a gap year before deciding to be a pilot. (Every toddler’s dream.) He can fly aeroplanes and helicopters and has got actual wings so he’s brilliant at flying.
Having achieved all his most recent ambitions, he’s now looking into being a farmer, dinosaur keeper, train driver and a fire engine.
Willy Buckingham bears an uncanny resemblance to Prince William. He’s tall, blond and very rich. His real name is actually William as well, but he thinks it’s “a bit public school” and likes giggling every time someone says Willy.
Willy’s favourite film is Grease and he likes nothing better than to dance and sing along in his nightie of a Saturday evening. His favourite cake is rice krispie cake.
