Fans of Dan Amboyer are in for a treat. The American actor, best known for playing HRH Prince William of Wales in Hallmark Channel's 2011 television movie “William & Catherine: A Royal Romance,” has come out as gay and revealed he secretly married his long-time partner, Eric P. Berger.

In an interview with People magazine, Dan Amboyer spoke openly about his sexuality for the first time. The 31-year-old says he has been in a relationship with Eric P. Berger since early 2000s, but kept it a secret from the public because he was advised to do so.

“Being a young actor in the industry, I had a lot of people who strongly advised me to stay quiet,” he admitted. "That was hard to live with."

Dan Amboyer says it was difficult for him to announce he is gay, but he found strength in himself, his long-time partner, close friends, and family. He was also inspired by married couple Zachary John Quinto and Miles Thomas McMillan, and Nico Tortorella’s advocate for gender fluidity, saying “I think the more open actors can be the less stigma there will be attached, which will be a positive thing moving forward.”
