Kate, Pippa Middleton get royal 'True Hollywood Story' treatment
Royal wedding (and Pippa Middleton) watchers, rejoice. E! has announced a one-hour special devoted to Prince William's new wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and her sister, Pippa.
The "E! True Hollywood Story: Kate & Pippa" will tell the tale of the commoner sisters who were launched into the international spotlight after Kate fell in love with a royal, the network said in a statement.
"Kate and Pippa have always been incredibly close," said royals author Claudia Joseph, who was interviewed for the special. "You can see the warmth between them; they spend a lot of time together. When Kate and William broke up [temporarily], it was Pippa she went on the town with."
Commentators will weigh in on the girls' quaint upbringing, their transition into London's social scene, William and Kate's courtship at St. Andrews University and Pippa's instant celebrity status boost since the April 2011 royal wedding.
"THS: Kate & Pippa" airs Oct. 12 at 10 p.m.
