Kate Middleton's uncle will discuss her 2011 wedding to Prince William in his first television appearance tonight.
- Kate Middleton's uncle will share details of his family's success story in an upcoming ITV royal documentary.
- Gary Goldsmith has previously been in the headlines for his 'Maison de Bang Bang' Ibiza villa and 2017 assault conviction.
- In other royal news, Meghan Markle's old hairdresser shares his unforgettable experience working with the royal icon.
And now it looks like followers of Britain's first family will have to make room for another treat with the airing of a new royal documentary this evening.
The Day Will and Kate Got Married, which hits screens at 9 pm on ITV tonight, invites viewers on a nostalgic journey back in time to the couple's iconic wedding on April 29, 2011. The documentary has been released in the run-up to the tenth anniversary of their marriage vows and will feature several interviews from the very people involved in the wedding preparations.
The lineup includes Kate's bridal embroider Gemma Murray and head of wedding security, Bob Broadhurst, as well as Kate's uncle, Gary Goldsmith.
The millionaire younger brother of Carole Middleton will give his take on the wedding in his television debut but is unlikely to address the multiple scandals that have plagued his own reputation. Gary's Ibiza villa earned the title 'Maison de Bang Bang' in 2015 after the media reported on the alleged shenanigans that occurred on the property. He also was sentenced to 12 months of community service in 2017 after assaulting his wife, Julie-Ann.
Instead, Goldsmith will focus on the 'rags to riches' nature of his family's story.
"It’s a fairy tale beyond fairy tales," he says. "We come from really humble stock. My father was a painter and decorator, mum was an accounts clerk and their eldest granddaughter was at Westminster Abbey about to marry the future king of this country."
The process of creating Will and Kate's wedding cake will also be discussed in the documentary. Fiona Cairns, the baker honored with the task of creating the eight-tiered cake, shared her stresses in the run-up to the big day.
"When the Queen came to see us, the cake wasn’t completely finished," she recalls. "I remember her saying, 'I hear you have been dismantling my house" and I said to her, 'Well, we had to take a door down from the room below for the trolley to go through with the cake.' But it was all put back in the end so it was fine."
The Day Will and Kate Got Married will air on ITV tonight at 9 pm.
