Kate Middleton in private talks with TV boss ‘over plans to make documentary on early childhood development’

KATE Middleton is reportedly in early talks with a TV boss over plans to make a documentary on early childhood development.

The mum-of-three had a meeting with a high-powered executive from production company 72 Films earlier this week.

However, no programme has yet been commissioned and well-placed sources say the chat was for "preliminary and research purposes".

If Kate does decide to sign up for a documentary, she'll be following in the footsteps of her husband and brother- and sister-in-law.

Prince William's environmental series with David Attenborough began on the BBC this week.

And Meghan and Harry have signed their own £73million deal with streaming giant Netflix.

It's believed TV bosses want Kate to be part of a programme on how children develop and learn – a subject of huge interest for the duchess.

The 39-year-old spoke with David Glover, who commissioned Gogglebox and has previously worked with Stephen Hawking.

And on the same day, she chatted on the phone with parenting psychologist Mandy Saligari and early years expert Dr Joan Lombardi.

"Catherine is very interested in a programme," the source told the Mail.

"She thinks it could be a really significant way to explore an important subject.

"She's been very impressed with William's efforts and knows how much he enjoyed making his Earthshot series."

It's reported that if a programme is made, it could follow a similar format to Who Do You Think You Are?, the genealogy show which led to Danny Dyer learning he is a a direct descendent of Thomas Cromwell. 

Kate revealed earlier this week she's carrying out her own research into previous generations of her family.


She visited University College London and met scientists behind the Children of the 2020s project.

The initiative tracks the lives of babies born in 2021 over five years and looks into how their childhoods are influenced by factors including where they grow up.

Kate is known to be shy – and was first heard speaking publicly when she and William officially announced their engagement.

However, in the past few years, she has stepped forward into the spotlight more frequently.

She recently stunned on the red carpet at the premier of James Bond film No Time to Die – and bravely held a giant tarantula as she met students in Northern Ireland.

The royals have taken part in a series of programmes across a range of different channels this year.


Last month, the BBC aired a documentary on the life of Prince Philip featuring personal recollections from his loved ones.

And Meghan and Harry have given a series of interviews this year – beginning with their bombshell Oprah chat in March.

The couple were also reportedly miked up on a recent visit to New York – sparking rumours they may have been filming for a new series on their lives.

The Sussexes were followed by their own personal videographer during the trip.

The cameraman closely followed the pair around the city and even ran ahead of them for the perfect shot before they toured the 9/11 Memorial on Thursday, according to Page Six.

A Kensington Palace spokesperson for Kate declined to comment.
