Duchess of Cambridge to give first solo TV interview - report
The Duchess of Cambridge is reportedly set to give her first solo TV interview since becoming a member of the British Royal Family.
The 34-year-old gave her last televised chat in November 2010, on the day her engagement to Prince William was announced, but on Monday (01Feb16), E! News reported Catherine would be filmed for a documentary to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II's 90th birthday.
The mother-of-two will join a host of elite members of the Royal Family, including her husband, his father, the Prince of Wales, and his wife the Duchess of Cornwall in paying tribute to the British monarch ahead of her latest age milestone.
Sources tell the outlet the programme will air in May (16), weeks after the Queen's big day on 21 April.
"It's a remarkable story of an extraordinary life which in so many ways reflects the changing face of the nation," said Jo Clinton-Davis, ITV's controller of factual television, who co-commissioned the film. "As she reaches her 90th birthday, this film aims to offer a fresh insight into our monarch's life and work."
While Catherine's speeches at public events have been broadcast since her marriage to William in April 2011, she has yet to conduct a one-to-one interview.
In 2010, she was interviewed by British journalist Tom Bradby alongside her then-fiance, and the segment was well received by the public.
Since tying the knot at London's Westminster Abbey, Catherine and William have gone on to welcome two children, Prince George, two, and Princess Charlotte, eight months.
