Kate Middleton ‘in talks’ to create a documentary on childhood development

Kate Middleton is reportedly in talks with a top TV producer following claims the Duchess could be making a documentary on early childhood development.

Kate, 39, is said to have held a meeting on the phone earlier this week with David Glover, who is responsible for Channel 4’s Gogglebox and was heavily involved in the television work of physicist Stephen Hawking, The Daily Mail claims.

The source said: “Catherine is very interested in a programme. 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.”

Kate’s husband Prince William, 39, has made an environmental series with Sir David Attenborough which aired on BBC1 this week.

And the Duchess is said to follow in her husband’s footsteps as she’s exploring the possibly of creating a documentary on early childhood development, a subject known to be close to her heart.

The proposed documentary is claimed to be in the style of the BBC’s popular genealogy series Who Do You Think You Are?.

Kensington Palace declined to comment. A royal insider did confirm to OK! that the talks “were preliminary and for research purposes”.

As part of Kate’s work into early childhood development she revealed recently that she was exploring four generations of her family.

The mother of three stepped out to visit the University College London Centre for Longitudinal Studies which saw her meet with early years researchers about the new ‘The Children of the 2020s’ study earlier this month.

Speaking about the study, The Duchess of Cambridge said: “Our early childhoods shape our adult lives and knowing more about what impacts this critical time is fundamental to understanding what we as a society can do to improve our future health and happiness.

“The landmark ‘Children of the 2020s’ study will illustrate the importance of the first five years and provide insights into the most critical aspects of early childhood, as well as the factors which support or hinder positive lifelong outcomes.

“I am committed to supporting greater in-depth research in this vital area and I’m delighted to be meeting all those behind the study at this early stage.”

Both William and Kate are devoted parents and were seen enjoying some simple pleasures with their three children as they went on a pub lunch recently.

The Royal Family members and their dog were pictured enjoying some quality time together as they sat in the Norfolk pub’s beer garden tucking into some pub grub.

Thought to be in close proximity of their Anmer Hall home in Norfolk, the exact name of the pub was not revealed.

Although typically dressed up for their fancy royal engagements and professional family portraits, the children were all dressed casually in T-shirts, shorts and trainers.

Their black spaniel also sat patiently as the young family enjoyed burgers and chips, with heir to the throne William pictured tucking into his meal.
