In Europe, W9 has acquired the documentary for France, TV2 for Norway, and TV3 for Ireland. BBC Lifestyle in Poland and Sanoma in Finland have also snapped up the program.

Distributor Orange Smarty said it was also fielding offers from broadcasters in Austria, Italy, and the Netherlands in the wake of Monday’s news that the prince and Markle will marry next spring. The sales company is also confident of securing a U.S. deal in the wake of the engagement news.
