This Prince George documentary explores the early life of Prince William’s first born. The young prince may live in Kensington Palace, but his mother Kate Middleton’s comparably humble roots means he has also been exposed to a more normal way of life - which is what his grandmother, Princess Diana, always wanted for her own children. This royal documentary looks at how these influences may impact the ‘Prince of Cuteness’, whilst also looking at how a royal upbringing can influence early development. When he was on his first official tour in Wellington, Prince George was taken on a playdate where he was able to interact with other babies. Being brought up as a member of the British Royal Family may mean you feel a little apart from the rest of the world but footage from this event shows that, royal or not, Prince George is a regular child - albeit one who is sometimes a bit grumpy! It’s a far cry from the harsh realities of centuries old royals like the Tudors. Elizabeth I, for example, was brought up in a separate household to her father! This documentary also looks at how Kate Middleton has blended into her role as Duchess of Cambridge and what rules and standards she has to meet on a daily basis, as well as Prince William’s early life, his parent’s marriage, and the media frenzy around guessing who William was dating at university.
