ITV has commissioned a one-off documentary from Spun Gold TV with exclusive access to The Duchess of Cornwall in her role as guest editor of Country Life magazine to mark her 75th birthday.

Camilla’s Country Life (w/t), from director Michael Waldman (Inside the Foreign Office), accompanies The Duchess of Cornwall as she plans and oversees a special edition of Country Life during the magazine’s 125th anniversary year, alongside performing her regular royal duties.

The documentary’s access to The Duchess of Cornwall – the future Queen Consort – reveals her love for the British countryside and the people and places that have shaped her. To put the edition together, Her Royal Highness has invited guest writers to discover her passions, reveal her personal countryside champions and meet the people who run the charities and advocate for causes she cares so deeply about.

Commissioner Jo Clinton-Davis, ITV controller of Factual, said: “This film presents a unique opportunity to gain an insight into The Duchess of Cornwall, at close quarters, immersed within her personal passions and engaged with some of those closest to her.”

Spun Gold’s recent royal content incudes The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebration for ITV (pictured), The Prince’s Master Crafters: The Next Generation for Sky Arts, Ancient Secrets of Althorp: Charles Spencer for Channel 4, and Diana’s Decades for ITV.

The producer is Ross Curran and the executive producer is Nick Bullen. All3Media International has worldwide distribution rights.
