Viewers of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Christmas TV special will come away feeling like they know Kate Middleton better than they did before, an insider has claimed.
The BBC special, A Berry Royal Christmas, sees former Great British Bake Off presenter Mary Berry join the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on several Royal engagements.
Speaking to Hello!, a source told how cameras captured several ‘heart-warming’ conversations between Kate and Mary, 84, that give an insight into the Duchess’s nature.
It comes as fresh details continue to emerge about the TV special, filmed by Shine TV, including several private royal engagements that were captured on camera.

‘It’s really heart-warming,’ the source said. ‘The conversations they have really pull on the heartstrings. You get a really good sense of who she [Kate] is – maybe more so than before.’
The TV appearance marks the biggest to date for the Duchess of Cambridge, who has previously appeared on Blue Peter and in a documentary to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday.
Filming for the Christmas special took place over the course of several months, including at a joint appearance by the Duchess of Cambridge and Mary Berry at RHS Wisley in September.

Cameras also followed William and Mary on a secret engagement to homeless charity The Passage last month, and on a secret visit by Kate and the TV star to The Brink in Liverpool – the UK’s first dry bar – days later.
The programme also shows Kate, William and Mary as they join former Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain to whip up food for an event celebrating emergency services workers, nurses, armed forces personnel and others, that was hosted by the couple at the Rosewood Hotel in London last month.
MailOnline last week reported how a nurse shared details of the event on Twitter, although at the time it was not known that it was in connection with a TV project.

The TV special also sees Prince William praise the work of his grandmother the Queen.
Speaking to Mary, William tells warmly of how the Queen, who came to the throne when she was only 25, defied the challenges of ‘a man’s world’.
‘My grandmother becoming Queen at a very young age, in the days when it was a man’s world, it was very difficult for her to make a difference – and she’s done it in her own very unique, distinct way.
‘And, you know, my grandmother and my grandfather together are the epitome of public service.’
