Prince William ‘to front fly-on-the-wall doc as he invites cameras to follow him’

ITV is set to follow Prince William in a new fly-on-the-wall documentary as he will travel through the UK on a homelessness initiative while giving a candid insight into his royal family.

The new documentary revolving around Prince William, 40, will reportedly showcase his working life as a senior royal.

A TV source told The Sun that William “invited” ITV to follow him and give an insight into the royal work he fulfills as the Prince of Wales.

They also pointed out that the documentary “isn't anything like” the TV appearances that his brother Prince Harry has taken part in recently.

The source said: “This is pretty extraordinary — it’s never been done before."

“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.”

The source continued: “He knows all too well how important it is that the monarchy develops a more modern relationship with the British people. TV is a great way to do that, but this is a dramatic contrast to what Harry has been doing.

“William has invited cameras to follow him as he fulfils his duties, giving a proper insight into himself and his work as Prince of Wales — this isn’t anything like his brother’s TV appearances.”

Reports of Prince William’s documentary followed after Buckingham Palace granted access to the BBC to make a documentary featuring unseen personal moments of the King ahead of his coronation.

Charles R: The Making of a Monarch is a sixty minute documentary that tells the story of King Charles III 's more than seven decades as heir to the throne.

Th documentary brings together a wealth of rarely seen or unseen material, including newsreels, home movies and interviews.

Other intimate family moments that have never been seen before include the Queen, Charles and other members of the family taking a trip by hovercraft and the family sitting down to dinner onboard the Royal Yacht Britannia.

BBC Studios has also been given special permission to use clips from the royal family’s private home movie footage, showing the King’s early love of nature, gardening and animals.

The BBC said the programme is told through the King’s own words, as recorded through the decades.

Charles R: The Making of a Monarch will debut on BBC One and BBC iPlayer on Sunday 30 April.

It comes ahead of King Charles’ Coronation, which will take place at Westminster Abbey on Saturday 6 May.
