Series 1, Episode 5
It's Carole Middleton's turn to look after Prince George for the day which, given he is heir to the throne, is a frankly daunting prospect.
Meanwhile, Dame Maggie Smith makes her bid for an action movie franchise, Hayley the zookeeper is distraught when her favourite monkey goes off to be mated, and American tourists Jackie and Hal are back admiring the worst of British life.
Elsewhere, a vicar late for a funeral has to improvise with social media and a modern Scottish crime tour proves a bit too modern for some of the punters.

It's Carole Middleton's turn with Prince George today and the heir to the throne is a lot more of a handful than he was with Granny Camilla in previous episodes.
Poor Carole can't help curtseying to her grandson in another pitch-perfect impersonation from the wonderful Trace. Her Dame Maggie Smith is also on form, as the acting grand dame pitches for a part in a "muscle car franchise...Peevish Max...one of those".
But once again a misfire skit satirising Ripper-style street tours highlights the familiar sketch show malaise when the supporting material fails to match up to the peerless set pieces. It's a drag, even when Tracey Ullman is doing the dragging.Ben Dowell, Radio Times, 2nd February 2016
