Prepare to meet The Windsors

Channel 4 have announced the cast of their new comedy series about the British Royal family, The Windsors.

Harry Enfield has been set as Prince Charles with former Drop The Dead Donkey star Haydn Gwynne as Camilla.

Morgana Robinson (The Morgana Show) will appear as Pippa Middleton with and Richard Goulding as Prince Harry.

The show is written by Bert Tyler-Moore and George Jeffrie, the co-creators of Channel 4’s celebrity mockumentary series Star Stories.

According to Channel 4, the show “is a wry take on what the soap opera of their lives (and loves) might just be like. Delving behind the headlines and gossip columns, The Windsors lets our imaginations run riot in this ludicrous parody.
“Imagine, who really controls the sceptre in Charles and Camilla’s marriage? What do the Royals really think of Kate? Does Wills really want to be King? Will Harry ever take Pippa up the aisle or will they end on a bum note? And what do Beatrice and Eugenie actually do for a living?”
C4’s head of comedy Phil Clarke added: “In The Windsors, our much-loved Royal family is re-imagined through the lens of a soap opera, and although the stories are completely fictional, some are inspired by real events. As a result, writers Bert and George have outdone even the funniest, most ludicrous issue of Hello! magazine ever.”

It looks like it could be fun!
