I’m so used to watching older documentaries, so this one was refreshing and recent, since it came out in 2012. It went over the itinerary of the couple 9 day tour of 4 different countries (including Malaysia, Singapore, Tuvalu, and the Solomon Islands).
In Singapore William and Kate saw an orchid that was named after Princess Diana, who passed away just two weeks before she was due to visit.
The hostess of the doc follows the couple as they go from each event. She talks to people in the audience as well as people who met them.
In Malaysia they visited a hospice and it’s clear to see the special connection they both have with children. Kate is a patron of a children’s hospice in the UK. Each event they go to they bring with them lots of publicity and are able to highlight issues that are close to them, such as conservation and hospice.
Sadly during this tour it came out that a French tabloid was publishing photos of Kate sunbathing topless during a vacation. It is a terrible violation of privacy and the House of Windsor was not amused. Throughout the ordeal Kate remained calm and kept her composure. The UK after all is known for the expression, “Keep Calm and Carry On.”
My favorite part of the doc was when William and Kate were in Tuvalu dancing. They are such a sweet couple and are so down to earth. I love that they participate in all sorts of activities. They are definitely a modern couple for the British monarchy. I can’t get enough of them together. Long live the (future) King!!
