It may be closest thing we’ll ever get to a royal reality show—and the most we’ve ever heard Kate Middleton speak at a stretch

Kate Middleton is often seen (and wondered over) but seldom heard. But today is one of those rare, precious times when the Duchess of Cambridge is not only speaking on camera, but speaking at length. In a new video for the British mental health organization Heads Together (and capping off a week of Prince William and Prince Harry advocating for the cause ahead of the London Marathon this weekend), Kate, Prince William, and Prince Harry sit on what appears to be a park bench at Kensington Palace and have a shockingly deep, roughly 6-minute conversation about their emotions, parenting, and Princess Diana’s death. It may be closest thing we’ll ever get to a royal reality show—and the most we’ve ever heard Kate Middleton speak at a stretch. In a casual striped tee—and an impeccable Pant
“It’s about that pain of the dissolving of a fairytale, particularly for Diana. It starts with the filing of divorce papers and takes you up until her death.”

Kate wants George – and later Charlotte – to have the same school experience that she did as a child

Prince George, Royality
Only last month, the Duchess of Cambridge told a fellow parent that she would "see them at the school gate," and it appears that Kate is keen to keep her word. The Duchess will take it in turns with her husband Prince William to do the school run when their son Prince George starts at Thomas's Battersea in September. The couple will continue to be hands-on parents, with the intention of dropping off and picking up George from school every day. The south-west London school is about a half-hour drive away from Kensington Palace. William, 34, and Kate, 35, could have chosen the Kensington sister branch of Thomas's but they are believed to have been drawn to the "village" feel Battersea provides. Like fellow parents, they will face the London rush hour and not make use of a police escort, w...

Catherine Duchess of Cambridge
ABC News will retrace the events of Princess Diana’s last summer in new primetime special, The Last 100 Days of Diana. The new two-hour special will revisit Princess Diana’s first and last summer as a single woman following her divorce from Prince Charles, until her tragic and untimely death in a car accident in Paris, France in 1997. The broadcast is hosted by former ABC News Nightline co-anchor Martin Bashir. In 1996 Bashir won a BAFTA Award for the only extended interview with the Princess. Now, he hears new accounts from people inside Diana’s inner circle, with rare interviews with close friends and her personal staff including her former butler, chef, bodyguard, press secretary and personal trainer. These voices provide an expose into what the Princess was thinking as she naviga

Prince Charles, Royality
Prince Charles and Princess Diana‘s seemingly fairytale beginnings was anything but, and now a new book claims the royal hoped he would “learn to love” his future wife, Princess Diana, when he decided to propose. Charles wed Diana in July 1981 in a lavish royal ceremony after a whirlwind courtship that started barely a year earlier. Astonishingly, the couple only had around 12 dates between the summer of 1980 and when he popped the question in February 1981, according to Sally Bedell Smith, the author of the biography, Prince Charles: The Passions and Paradoxes of an Improbable Life. Diana immediately accepted his proposal and Charles thought that he could make the union work. “He was obviously anguished, and he said she was someone I could learn to love,” Bedell Smith tells PEOPLE.
