"William & Kate" song

I received an email from Christine at Scully Love Promo about the song "William & Kate," written by Norm Strauss and Andrew Smith, and performed by Canadian artist Ann Vriend. I’d already heard this fun, catchy song on Marilyn Braun’s podcast, The Royal Report, and I’m happy to feature the video here. You can learn more about the song on its YouTube page.
