U.S. cable network OWN will air a special about the newest addition to the British royal family next week.

The 90-minute William, Kate and the Royal Baby will air on July 25 at 9 p.m. EST/PST, repeat at 10:30 p.m. EST/PST, and then air again on July 26 at 8 p.m. EST/PST.

The special will recount Prince William and Kate Middleton’s (pictured) love story and marriage and examine what lies ahead for the newborn; the pressures facing the new parents; and the roles family members will play in the child’s life.

The special is distributed by Zodiak Rights and coproduced by Marathon, part of the Zodiak Media Group and CB Productions.

Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, gave birth to a boy on Monday (July 22) amidst a global media circus. The baby is the third in line for the British throne and has not yet been named.

Earlier this week, broadcasters in Canada, Brazil and Singapore picked up FutureSight Entertainment’s royal baby doc, William and Kate: A Royal Arrival, from distributor Electric Sky.
