Further details

Kate is reluctant to join in a royal pheasant shoot at Sandringham, but Wills warns if she's ever going to fit into the family she'd better kill something.

Beatrice and Eugenie have jobs as motivational speakers. Will the internet tips they offer Port Talbot's steel workers single-handedly save the British steel industry?

After hearing mysterious noises, Wills stumbles upon his father's identical twin brother, kept prisoner in the attic for the last sixty-eight years following a mix-up that was supposed to see Charles locked away. Charles' twin is the rightful heir, a super-empath and seems like he'd make a wonderful king...

Harry wants revenge on Johnny for cheating him out of his nightclub. Goaded by Anne, Harry challenges Johnny to a duel. Will Pippa stop crack shot Johnny killing him?

Escaping the attic, Charles' twin runs into family members who, mistaking him for Charles, are surprised by his warmth, insight and better hair. Camilla accidentally sleeps with him. With their secret out of the bag, which version of Charles will the family choose? And how will they get rid of the other one?

Prince Charles's Secret Twin Brother

Wills makes a surprising discovery.

Featuring: Harry Enfield (Charles), Haydn Gwynne (Camilla), Hugh Skinner (Wills), Richard Goulding (Harry), Vicki Pepperdine (Princess Anne) & Harry Enfield (Charles's Twin).


To Sandringham, for shooting! In the world of The Windsors, that means visiting Princess Anne (Vicki Pepperdine), whose shtick - a scurrying housekeeper - is among the show's funniest. Its other standout performer is Harry Enfield as Prince Charles, and this week the writers find a way to double his screen time. In the adequate subplots, Harry accidentally agrees to a duel, and Beatrice and Eugenie give a motivational talk to Port Talbot steelworkers.

Jack Seale, The Guardian, 19th July 2017

The Windsors, series 2 episode 3 review

A breezy cross between a revenge tragedy, a Carry On film and an episode of Dynasty.
