The marriage of the decade singlehandedly brought back the long-sleeved wedding gown, and even created a fun new word for when a maid-of-honor accidentally outshines the bride. Now, Prince William and Kate Middleton are getting their own documentary in the form of a four-part series on the cable channel Reelz.
Announced today, "William and Kate: The Journey" will premiere on Monday, April 18th, nearly five years after their wedding date. The first two hour-long episodes, airing back-to-back at 10 p.m. EST, will follow the story of Will and Kate's relationship, from their engagement in 2010 (that dress!) to their wedding ceremony in April of 2011 (that other dress!).
The second two parts will premiere at the same time one week later, this time centered around the births of their two children, George and Charlotte. Each episode will include interviews with "royal insiders" as well as exclusive footage of their wedding. If this isn't enough royal content for you, ITV just aired a special called "The Queen at 90," which, among other delightful things, reveals that Prince George calls his grandmother "Gan-Gan," and that Queen Elizabeth II owns a pillow that reads, "It's good to be queen."
