Spun Gold TV has been commissioned by ITV to produce A Royal Year to Remember, a one-hour special reflecting on the royal family’s past year.

Hosted by Alan Titchmarsh, A Royal Year to Remember looks back at key events, including the royal wedding of Kate and William and the North American tour undertaken by the newlyweds, Prince Philip’s 90th birthday, and the Queen’s visit to Ireland.

The doc will feature interviews Titchmarsh has conducted over the past 12 months with the royals themselves, as well as royal insiders. The special will also include archive footage of life with the royal family and Christmas in the royal household.

“Following the mighty success of Inside The Royal Wedding [for] NBC, Spun Gold’s first U.S. network commission, it is evident that there is a huge appetite for royal documentaries both here in the UK and around the world,” said Nick Bullen, managing director, Spun Gold TV.

“Alan Titchmarsh and Spun Gold have a very successful track record in delivering high quality and exclusive access to the royal family for ITV1 and A Royal Year To Remember promises to be a definitive and enjoyable Christmas treat in the ITV schedule,” added Diana Howie, commissioning editor factual, ITV.

A Royal Year to Remember was commissioned by Howie and Alison Sharman for ITV. The show is produced and directed by Colin Lennox and executive produced by Matt Drury for Spun Gold TV.
