First came Harry and Meghan’s megawatt Netflix deal. Then a five-part BBC series from Prince William. Now, it appears, Kate could be making her way to a small screen near you.
Hot on the heels of her husband’s Earthshot Prize documentary, the Duchess of Cambridge has been in talks with documentary makers as part of her research into childhood development. A note in the court circular this week reveals she spoke “via telephone” to David Glover, the co-founder of 72 Films who has made programmes for Channel 4 and worked with the late scientist Stephen Hawking.
My sources at the Palace tell me the talks were preliminary and for research purposes. Royal watchers expect any new film to be about the importance of the first five years of a child’s life on their outcomes – an area the Duchess has devoted herself to.
But with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex cooking up a range of shows for Netflix in California and being trailed around New York by television cameras, perhaps Kate might be a bit more daring?
When he was at Channel 4, Glover commissioned Gogglebox. A Royal Special featuring the Windsors would certainly be must-watch TV.
