William and Kate: The First Year



On 29 April 2011,

the most talked about couple in

the world tied the knot.

It was a real fairytale, wasn't it?

It was the real thing.

And since that day,

it's been a whirlwind 12 months

for Will and Kate.

From taking part in the local pub

quiz in Anglesey...

He actually turned to me and said,

'Do you know what colour the

Simpsons' car is?'

I said, 'I think it's royal blue.'

He laughed his head off

when I said that.

I love being in Anglesey.

It's a beautiful place.

to their first official

royal tour.

It will improve as we go on.

Just what happens when you come

face-to-face with a duchess?

I didn't know if I could touch,

what I could touch.

It ended up looking like I was

playing Twister with her.

I personally thought it was

absolutely phenomenal.

I think they were just terrific,

the two of them.

We will find out what makes

this twosome tick...

The fact that there is a passion

there, there is a chemistry...

It is very clear.

and hear how the

world's favourite couple

has won over everyone on their way.

They are just very normal. They're

down-to-earth, they're caring.

They identify with the ordinary

working man.

We'll see them deal

with Britain in turmoil.

The signal that

they were sending out

was that they care,

that they understand.

And while the Prince does his

duties overseas...

In Argentina's capital, their chant

is, 'Get out of the Falklands.'

we see the future Queen consort

flying solo.

I feel enormously proud

to be part of East Anglia's

Children's Hospices.

One year on from their big day,

this is the inside story

of how William and Kate

stole the nation's heart.

And now, as they say,

lights, camera, action.

On Friday, 29 April 2011,

the eyes of the world

focused on London

and the fairytale wedding of Prince

William to Catherine Middleton.

William Wales and Kate Middleton

That is why we are all here.

1.5 million people flocked

onto the streets of London.

Here at Hyde Park, we are expecting

some 200,000 fans plus.

But at Westminster Abbey,

only the chosen few had an invite.

The guest list reflected the world

William and Kate inhabit,

their own friends,

the young and successful.

There was a tremendously

buzzy atmosphere.

People were greeting each other.

They were pleased to see each other.

I got married in Westminster Abbey.

I would have been terribly pleased

if the atmosphere before my wedding

was a patch on what theirs was.

With the supporting cast in place,

at 11:
01, the moment everyone

had been waiting for arrived.

She is

wearing brand Alexander McQueen.

It is a wedding dress that has

been designed, as was speculated,

by Sarah Burton.

That dress just nailed

the right level

between the simplicity

and the glamour.

She just got it perfectly right.

The bride walked towards me

and it was just a breathtaking

and wonderful sight, really.

Such a beautiful dress.

I daresay she did feel

a bit nervous.

I mean, who wouldn't at that

particular moment?

There was no great sign of it

at all.

She seemed very calm

and very together,

and utterly prepared for what was

going to happen.

Around the world,

2.4 billion people watched

as William and Catherine said,

'I do.'

Be who God meant you to be...

and you will set the world

on fire.

The families watched on with pride,

but one very special person,

dear to Prince William, was missing.

I felt a bit heartbroken on the day

that we weren't seeing Diana

in the Abbey

because she would have been loving

every second.

I think the Princess of Wales,

his mother,

would have been very, very proud

of him.

The new royal couple.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

As hundreds of thousands of people

made their way up The Mall

to gather beneath the balcony...

inside the palace,

the two families were preparing for

the official photograph.

They'd just come back from the

Abbey, in that carriage,

and then they came

into the throne room.

It was lovely listening to

them all getting on

and who was paying attention to what

and whatever. It was great.

But for Hugo, the pressure was on.

We had officially 28 minutes

from when they got back to the Abbey

to when they had to leave

the throne room.

With the clock ticking,

Hugo had one last task,

to get a shot of the bride and groom

with their bridesmaids and pages.

But he had a trick up his sleeve

to get the children on his side.

I felt that jellybeans was probably

a suitable bribe.

With little people,

you show them the jellybeans,

and say, 'These are for you,

but we've got to do the job first.'

There was a bit of an ugly scramble

for the jellybeans after the shoot.

There's no doubt about that.

Outside Buckingham Palace,

tension was building

as the huge crowds waited for a

glimpse of the newlyweds.

'Oh, wow,' she says. 'Oh, wow.'

And there was one thing

they all wanted to see.

And there you have the moment

they had all come for, the kiss,

this new tradition

that you imagine has been going for

hundreds of years,

that was actually only invented by

William's parents Charles and Diana.

They did the kiss, that first

kiss... 'Let's get this one over.'

But it was the second one

which was the real humdinger.

Oh, another one!

It was not rehearsed.

It was spontaneous.

Again, it showed the passion.

Those two are not afraid to touch

each other.

As a matter of fact, it looks like
