Royal wedding fever: William And Kate – A Royal Engagement arrives in Cannes


The production has been picked up by broadcasters all over the world including in the US (Universal), Australia (Bio Channel), Italy (CDISRL) and Thailand (Cineplex). The one-off special includes contributions from close friends, historians, biographers and well-known journalists, to reveal the couple’s very different backgrounds and upbringings, and traces the moments leading up to their engagement.

“The impressive sales of William And Kate – A Royal Engagement highlight the international interest there is in the royal wedding and we have a strong collection of new programmes to satisfy this demand at MIPTV,” said Steve Macallister, managing director, sales & distribution at BBC Worldwide. A Royal Engagement is just one of five Royal wedding-themed programmes including the BBC’s Britain’s Royal Weddings and Untold Stories Of A Royal Bridesmaid, a one-off programme from Magilla Entertainment for TLC.
