Prince William to star in new documentary as Meghan and Harry look on

Prince William is to star in his own fly-on-the-wall documentary series, it’s been announced.

ITV and the 40-year-old heir to the throne have struck a deal in which the broadcaster will film him launching a homelessness campaign as well as attending nationwide public engagements.

The Sun reports that the programmes may shine a very authentic light on the lives of the Prince of Wales and his family.

It is widely expected that the show will strike a different tone than Harry and Meghan’s tell-all reality show.

ITV bosses are anticipating good ratings when the shows air this summer, with the possibility of follow-up instalments.

A TV insider described the move as “pretty extraordinary”.

They said: “Generally access to senior royals is very limited and totally controlled, but William clearly wants to change that.

“He’s keen to highlight his work, particularly on a homeless project which was a subject very close to his mother’s heart, and to connect with the public on a new level.

“He knows all too well how important it is that the monarchy develops a more modern relationship with the British people.”

This comes as GB News commentator Ryan-Mark Parsons heralded the Prince and Princess of Wales as the people to “modernise” the Royal Family.

He said the Royals were no longer an “untouchable force” however Prince William and his family could keep it alive.

“I actually had so much admiration for the royal family when the Queen was alive. I went to a garden party last year, I’ve performed for Prince William, I met him and we’ve spoken.

“In many ways, I’ve been an advocate for the royal family. It’s a very valued part of a country.”

The commentator slammed the Duke and Duchess of Sussexes Netflix series, saying it “trivialised” the Firm. Viewers to Prince William’s documentary series will have to wait until the summer months to find out whether his programme makes a different mark.
