Recently, the Duchess of Sussex just gave her first TV interview as a member of the royal family. Meghan has already spoken in front of cameras for the exciting new documentary, titled Queen of the World, which will premiere on ITV this September. The documentary is produced by Oxford films, and in it, viewers will get a glimpse of the Queen’s global rule, and her plan to pass her responsibilities on to the younger royals going forward. It will also include a behind-the-scenes moment with Meghan and her husband Prince Harry as they continue their work with the young people of the Commonwealth.
The documentary is also said to include royals such as Prince Charles, Prince William, Princess Anne and the Countess of Wessex. Of course, Prince Harry had recently appeared in another ITV documentary, The Queen’s Green Planet, where he voiced his passion and care for the wellbeing and conservation of the Commonwealth.
Harry was recently named Commonwealth Youth Ambassador in the first major public role that was given to him by the Queen, and since then, both he and his wife Meghan have been working hard with young people from all over the world. She is expected to speak on that topic in the documentary and explain their newfound passion for their new roles.
The pair had a bit of a head start on their new roles, as even before they got married, the two opened the Commonwealth Youth Forum in April and met with young leaders looking to debate the challenges faced by their generation.
Queen of the World will reportedly explore the Queen’s early years as Head of the Commonwealth. At the time, she only had eight Commonwealth countries embroidered on her Coronation gown-and now the number has grown to 53 by the time Meghan chose to have the flowers of the Commonwealth sewn into her wedding veil in May – something the Duchess will touch on during the film.
Nicolas Kent, creative director for Oxford Films and executive producer of the documentary, said: “With the Duke and Duchess of Sussex about to embark on their first Commonwealth Tour to Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific exactly sixty-five years after the Queen’s first Commonwealth Tour, this series could not be more timely.”
