It has been quite the decade for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge after they exchanged their wedding vows back in 2011. So as a way of celebrating the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s 10-year wedding anniversary, the BBC will be airing a new documentary about the couple and that special day.
Prince William and Kate Middleton will be celebrating their 10-year wedding anniversary this year on the 29th of April. The couple tied the knot 10 years ago at Westminster abbey in what only could be described as a fairytale ceremony, followed by billions, at home and in person. And since then the two have had three children, done countless royal engagements and really stepped up for their roles as senior royals.
The documentary will be titled Royal Wedding: A Day to Remember and will have a runtime of 1 hour. The documentary celebrating the day that Prince William and Kate Middleton officially became a couple will air this Friday, April 30.
In it fans will be able to see interviews with people who were there for the big day or took part in it such as the florist, the former Archbishop of Canterbury who married Kate and William, and famous guests – including David Cameron and Sir Clive Woodward.
The wedding ceremony was watched by 17.6 million people in the UK and 2 billion worldwide, including the thousands of royal fans that went to London to be there in person and catch a glimpse of the newly-married couple. The documentary will also have interviews with some of the fans that were there on the special day-who got to see them kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
Seyi Obakin, CEO of the homeless charity Centrepoint, was a guest at the wedding and will take part in this documentary. While talking about the big day, he said: “You could just see in their faces the excitement of the day, but in his face, the pride that he’d come to this point, this position, in which he’s getting married to somebody that he truly loves.”
In these 10 years of marriage lots of things have changed for the couple. The two now have three wonderful children, Prince George, 7, the oldest, Princess Charlotte, 5, and the youngest Prince Louis, who just turned three a couple of days ago. For his birthday, the couple released brand new photos of the little royals on their official social media accounts.
ITV have also made a hour-long documentary about the big day, but when it was released it caused somewhat of a divide among fans, with a lukewarm reception at best.
