Wills and Kate shun their royal life and move to her dream semi in Rickmansworth.

Further details

When a stranger claims that Prince Charles is his father, Charles questions who will be second in line to the throne after him. Wills and Kate shun their royal life and move to her dream semi in Rickmansworth. A pregnant Camilla, however, has other ideas...

Meanwhile, Beatrice and Eugenie do the parent trap to try to get Fergie and Andrew back together again, but an international PR crisis looks set to end any hope of reconciliation.

Pippa is seriously miffed when Prince Harry looks set to marry the Australian Prime Minister's daughter - can Harry save the Commonwealth? Will best man Prince Edward remember the rings? Or will the funny feeling in Harry's tummy turn out to be more than IBS?

The continuing appeal of the real-life royals probably now relies on a national weakness for kitsch celebrity trivia. Accordingly, the tone of this comedy is snarky but basically affectionate. Tellingly, there's no sign of the Queen - the tacit assumption is perhaps that, shorn of her starchy gravitas, the essential silliness of the rest of the family is ripe for lampooning. Tonight, Harry faces an arranged marriage, and the fruits of Charles's wild years cause succession problems.

Phil Harrison, The Guardian, 13th May 2016
