Millions around the world tuned in to watch the royal wedding as Prince William and Kate Middleton said their vows. And it was that same day that much of the world was introduced to Kate’s stunning sister, Pippa.

Now you can tune in to watch a special “E! True Hollywood Story” (THS) that follows the new Duchess of Cambridge and her captivating sibling.

The dynamic sisters have captured the hearts and minds of millions around the globe with their sense of fashion and seeming closeness. “Kate and Pippa have always been incredibly close,” royals author Claudia Joseph told the LA Times. “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.” (PHOTOS: All about Pippa [SLIDESHOW])

The special is aimed at documenting the tale of how these “commoner” sisters have been launched into the international spotlight of royalty.

“‘E! True Hollywood Story’ paints a portrait of these dynamic siblings who have captured the affection of millions around the globe,” the network said in a statement. “From their quaint childhood, through their times on the London social scene and finally to where they are today, THS reveals the remarkable story of two beauties who rose to celebrity status in the most magical way.”

This time, fans won’t have to wake up in the middle of the night to watch the special live, as was the case with the royal wedding. The program airs Wednesday, October 12 at 10 p.m.
