Kate Middleton: Uncommon Bride
Premieres May 13 at 11:20 pm ET/PT
Kate Middleton is living a real life fairytale. She is stunning, stylish and married to her prince charming, but to some, Kate was an unlikely choice for a royal bride. As a descendant of coal-miners, Kate lacked royal blood, but had another advantage - a family history of ambition and determination that propelled the Middleton's from the depths of a British coal mine to Windsor Castle. Although she is now The Duchess of Cambridge, a fashion icon, a mother of three and the future Queen of England, she will always be known as Kate Middleton, just a regular English girl who fell in love with her prince from afar and then captured his heart.
