The documentary looked back on Royal Wedding Day 2011, as the couple, now Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, are celebrating 10 years of marriage.
They have three children and their lives are now significantly different, even compared to 2011, as they gave up a relatively quiet life in Norfolk to start full-time with royal duties.
But Kate’s uncle was full of praise for how she handled her lifestyle.
He said: “Kate was born for that role – to humiliate supplies, but completely for that role. She breaks it, they are completely right for the country and I think that’s why we love them.”
Goldsmith also admitted that his mother, Kate’s grandmother, was a “convinced royalist” and even earned the nickname “Duchess”.
