Britney animated over Prince William
Will's World
Britney gets her man in Will's World
Teenage pop sensation Britney Spears will go all out to snare Prince William on his 18th birthday - but only in a cartoon.

Channel 4 will screen the animated adventure Will's World on 21 June - the prince's birthday.

It takes an irreverent look at what will be going on at the royal's coming-of-age party.

"Will" - who is voiced by comedienne Morwenna Banks - will be seen being chased by Britney, 18 - who has in real-life confessed her admiration for the prince.


Will's World
Most of the Royal Family feature

A Channel 4 spokesman said: "It's an affectionate, sideways look at the first really modern prince."

Writers from the hit comedy shows The Fast Show and Smack the Pony have worked on the script.

It has been directed by Oscar-winning Bob Godfrey, best known for the popular cartoon creations Roobarb and Custard and Henry's Cat.

Most of the other members of the Royal Family feature in the cartoon. Among the celebrities invited to the party are "It Girls" Tara Palmer-Tomkinson and Tamara Beckwith.

A spokeswoman for Buckingham Palace said she could not comment until she had seen the cartoon.
