Christmas Special

It's Christmas Eve with The Windsors and it's an even tenser affair than usual following the events that led Wills to usurp Prince Charles as next in line to the throne.

Further details

It's Christmas Eve with The Windsors and it's an even tenser affair than usual following the events that led Wills to usurp Prince Charles as next in line to the throne. Camilla is still fuming - even more so since Kate has put herself in charge of Christmas lunch, but will Kate's festive feast meet host Princess Anne's (Vicki Pepperdine) expectations or could this be Camilla's chance for revenge?

The ghost of Christmas past, King George III (Paul Whitehouse) tries to get Wills to see the light and rescind the crown back to his Dad by showing him what Christmas Future will involve if he doesn't - Charles spending it in the Big Brother house... But will it do the trick and get Charles back on top?

Meanwhile Prince Edward is working as Santa in Debenhams to earn some cash and Pippa's wedding to Prince Harry is threatened by soup kitchen volunteer Ellie Goulding.

Banished from the house by a gloomy Charles, Fergie, Beatrice and Eugenie are forced to stay in the stables. However the girls think everything will be fine if they can get their Daddy, Prince Andrew home, but it's not easy when he's in Azerbaijan. Will their Christmas single, Daddy Come Home for Christmas, do the trick?
