Harry is excited about his impending marriage to Meghan. Our party prince is getting ready to organise the best stag party ever while the blushing bride has other ideas about what makes a great bachelor party. Harry and Meghan decide to take Charles to America to meet Doria - Meghan's down-to-earth all-American mum. She doesn't have enough spare rooms for his staff, which makes life very difficult for Charles... and her.

Back in London, Wills and Kate are struggling to cope with the arrival of their latest child. Elsewhere, Eugenie is engaged to be married, leaving Beatrice feeling lonely and worried about not having a plus one for the wedding, when a hunky political firebrand comes along to sweep her off her feet.

Meanwhile, Aunty Anne is on hand to help with Eugenie's wedding planning and, unsure whether she's going to get an invite to Harry and Meghan's special day or not, our Fergie needs to find a way to get into the reception. And that's not forgetting scheming Pippa, who is determined not to let this big day go without a bit of a hitch...

Press

Either you spent the run-up to the royal wedding pulsating with excitement, or, like me, trying to choke yourself with a commemorative tea towel to avoid having to watch any more coverage. In this sour, curmudgeonly spirit, I was grateful for playful, dissenting voices, and The Windsors duly obliged with their hour-long Royal Wedding Special, which included Harry (p]Richard Goulding]) letting down "top bird" Meghan (Kathryn Drysdale) by embarking on a stag night that resulted in him dressing up in an SS uniform (ahem, again), and Kate (Louise Ford) insisting that William (Hugh Skinner/p) get a vasectomy.

The Windors Royal Wedding Special review

So what's funny about the marriage of Harry and Meghan? What isn't? But the first port of call on the television is The Windsors: Royal Wedding Special (Channel 4, Tuesday). There was nothing not funny about this show.

David Stephenson, The Daily Express, 20th May 2018

The Windsors Royal Wedding Special review

Bert Tyler-Moore and George Jeffrie's ruthless comedy is a reminder that you can get away with a lot as long as you are funny.

Sam Wollaston, The Guardian, 16th May 2018

A wickedly witty send up but are the Windsors watching?

This Royal Wedding special was bursting with ideas like a box of exploding confetti.

Christopher Stevens, Daily Mail, 16th May 2018
