Harry, William, and Meghan Make Cameos in the Queen's New Documentary, but Where's Kate?
Queen Elizabeth II's new documentary, Queen of the World, will hit TV screens on Tuesday, and one person who is noticeably missing from it is the Duchess of Cambridge. While we get a glimpse of the moment Meghan Markle first laid eyes on her wedding dress and Prince Harry talking about how he panics every time he bumps into his grandmother in the corridor, Kate isn't featured in any of the trailer for the ITV show, and there's a good explanation as to why.
Kate welcomed her third child, Prince Louis, in April and then went on maternity leave shortly after. Most of the filming was conducted around that time, and Kate wasn't partaking in any royal engagements. "Kate was largely out of action during the main filming," People reported. "CHOGM (the British meeting of the heads of government from the Commonwealth) was a focal point and she was due to give birth any minute then."
But don't freak out just yet; Kate is actually in the documentary, she just isn't a part of any of the conversations. "There is film of events and receptions which she attended, so you do see her," a source told the outlet. Phew! Catch Queen of the World when it airs on ITV on Sept. 25 at 9.15 p.m.
