The Day Will and Kate Got Married on ITV
The ITV documentary will feature interviews with various people from the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
They include Kate’s uncle Gary, wedding cake maker Fiona Cairns, as well as ex-Metropolitan Police commander Bob Broadhurst who was in charge during the wedding day.
Speaking in the documentary, Gary called Kate and William’s wedding a “fairy tale beyond fairy tales”, and said:
“It’s a fairy tale beyond fairy tales. We come from really humble stock. My father was a painter and decorator, mum was an accounts clerk and their eldest granddaughter was at Westminster Abbey about to marry the future king of this country.”
