Prince William to star in ITV reality series months after Harry's bombshell Netflix docuseries
WINDSOR, THE UK: In a historic first and a severe setback for his pouting brother, Prince William will star in a fly-on-the-wall documentary that will follow him as the successor to the throne. The future monarch has allowed ITV's cameras to accompany him as he tours the nation as part of a campaign to combat homelessness.
As part of his new homelessness initiative, Prince William will feature in a new fly-on-the-wall documentary. 'Fly on the Wall' is a documentary filmmaking technique used in cinema and television production. The term comes from the concept that events are observed as they would be seen by a fly on a wall. The audience is expected to have an intimate understanding of William and his role within the royal family as a result of the series.

Prince William's reality series will be in contrast to Brother Harry's bombshell docuseries
In contrast to Prince Harry's endless bombshell interviews and documentary appearances, which he has used to hurt his family and the ancient institution, the serious and responsible TV appearances will concentrate on life as a working senior royal. ITV executives are hoping for further installments after a successful initial run this summer that highlights William's enthusiastic work on a significant new homelessness program.
"This is pretty extraordinary — it’s never been done before," The Mirror quoted a TV insider as saying. "Generally access to senior royals is very limited and totally controlled, but William clearly wants to change that. He’s keen to highlight his work, particularly on a homeless project which was a subject very close to his mother’s heart, and to connect with the public on a new level. He knows all too well how important it is that the monarchy develops a more modern relationship with the British people. TV is a great way to do that, but this is a dramatic contrast to what Harry has been doing. William has invited cameras to follow him as he fulfills his duties, giving a proper insight into himself and his work as Prince of Wales — this isn’t anything like his brother’s TV appearances."
'Absolute radio silence'
According to royal analyst Nick Bullen, Prince Harry has not communicated with any other member of the royal family except his father, King Charles, in the run-up to the coronation event. He said that there has been "absolute radio silence" between Harry and his older brother, Prince William, and that no one family has apologized or taken any steps to repair the situation.
"My understanding is that there have been no discussions between Harry and William. There is absolute radio silence. It's a very big void. Nobody, that I'm talking to, seems to see a way that those two are going to have a reparation," Us Magazine quoted Nick as saying.
Apart from a brief encounter at Wimbledon, Nick also stated that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle never had a relationship. He added that King Charles had talked to Harry and was doing everything he could to maintain communication ties, but it appeared that only the King and Harry were in contact at the time.
