8:01 pm
kate. >> now the next chapter of this royal story. from william and kate's upbringing, to their rocky courtship, and royal wedding. >> it was the william and kate show. >> now raising an heir. modernizing a monarchy. and learning to be will and kate plus one. it was the moment the world had been waiting for. the most talked about courtship of the century. after a decade-long romance, kate middleton and prince william finally tie the knot in a fairy tale wedding. thousands watched outside the church. family friend john haley was sitting in the front row. >> i was four foot away from everybody, the queen, prince charles, all the royal family.
8:02 pm
it was amazing. >> kind of a pinch yourself moment? >> it was. i couldn't believe it. you should hear the roar from outside. when kate and her dad come in, it sent tingles all through your body. >> it felt like a wonderful country wedding. >> lady elizabeth was sitting just rows behind her cousin, queen elizabeth. >> a huge amount of love in the church, which happened to be a royal wedding. >> a royal wedding that would mark a new era for the british monarchy, and a new way of doing things, with william and kate breaking tradition almost every step of the way. >> they did everything themselves. whatever flowers they wanted, all of that was personally chosen by them. i think that was the first time it had happened in the royal family.
8:03 pm
>> westminister abbey is where it all officially began for the duke and dutchess of cambridge. billions watched as they wed, and almost immediately after they said "i do," the speculation began, when would the next royal baby arrive? >> because the one job kate had to do immediately after the wedding was get pregnant. >> author katie nickel had been writing about the royal family. >> we were always going to be on bump watch. >> but in true william and kate style, they did it their own way, waiting and choosing to enjoy time as newlyweds before starting a family. >> you look at diana and the queen, they were very pregnant within three and six months of being married. >> even their honeymoon was
8:04 pm
different. >> what royals usually do is go off to the queen's scottish residence. they decided they would not go to scotland, they would go to the seychelles instead. >> you can see their voice and their opinion in pretty much all of their life choices. >> i think this is a very modern royal couple. >> and a royal couple desperate to be normal. william and kate would delay taking on full-time rolls and working royals and spend their first years in a rented farmhouse on the remote welsh island. they lived near this beach, right? >> a few miles behind us. >> ewun hughes is head of tourism. >> their house is pretty normal. they're not living in a castle or a mansion.
8:05 pm
>> remote, wind swept, incredibly beautiful, secludes, and that gives them privacy. and that's most important. >> it really couldn't be further from the life that they will be facing and living when they're back in london. the pressures, the job, and the paparazzi. >> that's why it is a utopia for them. ♪ >> kate and william are often seen around town, enjoying a pint, browsing the shops or even picking up groceries. in fact, locals call the duchess a pretty savvy shopper, known to make meat pies and homemade gravy for william. >> immediately after their wedding day, what did we see? we saw kate pushing a shopping trolly around the car park of her local supermarket. it doesn't get more ordinary than that. that's their stamp. >> even on the world stage, the couple would at times appear very unroyal. like at this dragon boat raise
8:06 pm
in canada during their first official overseas visit. >> you could see the look of excitement on her face as she got into the boat and was ready to helm. and almost a look of frustration that william had beaten her. >> she did look frustrated that she was beaten. >> they can't finish a game of ten else because they're so competitive. but he gave her a hug and that moment was significant, because you don't see royals cuddling. you just don't see it. but these two are not afraid of breaching royal protocol and showing the world you know what? we're really happy together. >> after their first year of marriage, as william served as a rescue pilot with the air force, kate stepped out for engagements of her own. >> about 400 families we look after. >> grand butland is the director. >> on that first visit, her
8:07 pm
approach was just so natural. it's as if she was blind to the disability but could see the child. that takes some skill. >> the spotlight was absolutely fixed on her. >> her true test would believe her first official speech, one she gave for the charity. >> i feel hugely honored to be here to see this wonderful center. >> there were six, seven satellite vans in our car park. >> she did a very good job. it can't be easy to do that with that much pressure. >> bye-bye. >> but there was perhaps no greater pressure on kate those first years than to produce an heir. >> i think there was a level of surprise that it had taken quite some time. >> and it took no time for bump watch to kick into high gear.
8:08 pm
every time we shore a dress that was a little flowy, every time she put her clutch in front of her waist, the example upon examples of all the speculation, she wouldn't eat peanut paste, so she was pregnant. >> i was on that trip in copenhagen, and there was a discussion among the reporters, why is she not eating peanut paste? and it was just relentless. >> when kate did finally get pregnant, she couldn't hide it. the duchess was admitted to this hospital with acute morning sickness last december. then the palace had no choice but to announce the pregnancy, though she wasn't even 12 weeks along at the time. >> i think it took everyone by surprise. it wasn't just the announcement of a pregnancy, it was the announcement that the duchess is seriously sick. >> later, a pregnancy in jeopardy. >> it affected kate particularly badly. >> but first, growing up for

8:16 pm
so he took an awful lot on. >> it is announced that with regret, the prince and princess of waels have decided to sfrat. >> by august of 1996, william's parents finally divorced. yet even in the midst of living in this fish bowl of tragedy, scandal and speculation, there were many moments of normalcy. >> they would sit watching tv and munch potato chips. she would take them to mcdonald's. she would do regular things with the boys and she would hug them and kiss them and show them affection. >> as a teen, william was coming into his own, learning to live in the public eye, and living out the lessons his father and mother taught him. >> this was a woman who insisted on taking her children out of the palace into hospitals and hospices to meet the homeless, to do the serious, gritty work that a royal should do and i
8:17 pm
think also charles deserves credit, as well because he's been very proactive. >> and just as the dust settled on the divorce -- >> this is cnn breaking news. >> an unspeakable tragedy. >> the french government has informed all of us that princess diana has died. >> a high speed pursuit by the paparazzi and the crash in a paris tunnel that killed princess diana, taking william's mother from him at the age of 15. >> he was in that quite difficult transition stage of a boy going into manhood and not have his mother there is a loss he'll feel forever. >> after the very public funeral, william withdrew. and not long after, the palace and the press forged an unspoken

some day ascend the throne. >> this is the first time since 1894 that the reigning british monarch has three direct heirs to the throne living. given she's the second longest living reigning british monarch, it will be exciting to have the future mapped out for her. >> soon, there were salutes and celebrations from london to bucklebury. excited visitors. >> they're both doing really well. >> from both sides of the family. prince's first public appearance. >> here we go. i can see william. here he comes. there's the baby, the new royal heir in the united kingdom. and the duchess of cambridge, smiling, looking so well, isn't
