On 29 April 2011, William and Catherine were married in a fairy tale wedding watched by more than two billion people and celebrated the whole world over.

No sooner had they returned from their honeymoon than the newlyweds were back in the spotlight. Their first duty as married royals was as big as it gets – a meeting at Buckingham Palace with the President of the United States, Barack Obama, and his wife Michelle.

From then on the the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a string of traditional ceremonies, but their first big test as a married couple was to come at the end of June, when they embarked on a tour of Canada followed by a star-studded trip to LA. The tour would see them fulfil a relentless schedule of meetings with heads of state, celebrities and the public.

Ever since her wedding dress was unveiled, Kate’s style has been closely watched by fashion critics across the globe. During the Canadian trip it became apparent that she was fast becoming a national ambassador for British fashion. With interviews from some of the leading fashion houses in the UK, we discuss just how much of an impact Kate has had on home-grown brands and designers.

Kate has succeeded in charming the media, and it seems her positive impact is also rubbing off on William. With compelling contributions from royal commentators, we examine the remarkable turnaround in the previously publicity-shy Prince and look at how he overcame his deep distrust of the media.

Together, William and Kate have become the most famous couple in the world, using the stream used the stream of media interest and headlines they generate to shine a light on national crises and highlight global appeals.

While Kate has set to work with her charities, William has stepped up his military role. We explore what his position means to him and to the country, and speculate on what the future holds for the couple that will one day be our King and Queen.

    Tigerlilly... No one has asked me! You cannot say "no one" you could say "most", but again, you have to ask everyone. ... Like others, I have not seen the program, and am still waiting for demand 5 to show it.

    Coton you'll probably find that the producer has paid attention to fact. Facts are noone wants prince charles next on the throne. The public have decided themselves. fact.

    Elizabeth would be ' big shoes to fill', maybe like Harry, who is in fact Henry, name a girl Elizabeth but known by another name until she is crowned Queen. A boy should be Phillip to give us a King Phillip instead of underserved Prince. Let's back off pressure of baby talk, I'm sure the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided when THEY want to start their family.

    We look forward to hearing William and Kate -not to long please-that the are expecting a baby--Elizabeth would be nice--while the queen Elizabeth is on the throne we will never replace her , while there is time for you too bring up a family, till you have the throne

    Perhaps the producer should pay a little more attention to fact. Prince William is heir to Prince Charles, not currently heir to the throne!
