TV viewers to 'choose' royal wife
Prince William
William is among the UK's most eligible bachelors
Viewers are being given a chance to choose a wife for Prince William in a light-hearted show on digital TV.

Channel 4's E4 network says it hopes to save William the bother of finding a partner by putting it to the public vote.

Potential candidates from Europe's minor royalty will be profiled in the six-part series A Wife For William.

Viewers will then be asked who they think would be most suitable to marry the 21-year-old prince.

Royal experts have drawn up a list of 25 potential candidates, including Danish princesses, heiresses and well-bred celebrities.

An E4 spokeswoman said: "Given the mess the royals have made in finding their own partners, E4 proposes that the British people choose."
