What can we expect from Zara and Mike: No-Nonsense Royals?

This documentary will give viewers an insight into how Zara, the eldest granddaughter to the Queen, manages to live a relatively normal life away from the cameras with her husband Mike and their three children. 

After meeting in 2003, the pair got married in 2011 and have since carved out hugely successful careers for themselves, while also supporting one another in their personal ventures. 

This programme will track their relationship and give an insight into what goes on behind the scenes of the famous royal couple.

The documentary will also see royal commentators talking about the down-to-earth pair, plus a few of Mike's old teachers will spill the beans on what the former England rugby player was like at school.
