ITV Sets Royal Wedding Specials from Spun Gold


ITV has commissioned two new prime-time programs from Spun Gold TV in the lead-up to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s approaching wedding.

The hour-long Prince Harry’s Story: Four Royal Weddings… follows Prince Harry’s life from childhood to his active service as a soldier in Afghanistan to his international charity work through to his upcoming wedding. The program looks at his life through key turning points—four royal weddings and the tragic and untimely death of his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales. Prince Harry’s Story: Four Royal Weddings… uses newsreel footage and commentary from royal sources, historians, journalists and key figures from Prince Harry’s life.

ITV also commissioned the two-part documentary series Royal Wives of Windsor. The docuseries explores the lives of some of the women who married into the House of Windsor over the last century. It looks at how these women, including Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (The Queen Mother), Wallis Simpson, Princess Diana, Sarah Ferguson, Camilla Parker-Bowles, Sophie Rhys Jones and The Duchess of Cambridge, have transformed the royal family. The series sees historians David Starkey, Kate Williams and Piers Brendon; writers and broadcasters Jeremy Paxman and Afua Hirsch; biographer Andrew Morton; and other royal insiders provide a definitive review of British social history as reflected through the lives of these women.

Both Prince Harry’s Story: Four Royal Weddings… and Royal Wives of Windsor are being distributed globally by all3media international.

Spun Gold CEO Nick Bullen said, “Prince Harry’s wedding is one of the most talked about and anticipated events of the year—not just in the U.K. but in the U.S. and around the world due to Meghan’s global reach and relevance. Prince Harry’s Story: Four Royal Weddings… will give viewers an insightful and revealing portrait of Harry’s journey from boyhood to Prince Charming, while Royal Wives of Windsor documents how Meghan and her predecessors have adapted to and changed the royal family and, in some cases, have even impacted on the country as a whole.”
