TV review: The Windsors, series three, episode six

If it continues along in the vein of the majority of the third series it'll be increasingly disappointing and only fitfully amusing.

Our new favourite boxset: The Windsors

Its main recommendation is that it's very funny but it also manages to be topical.

Barry Didcock, The Herald, 8th March 2020

The latest instalment of the satirical soap that can't help but act as a buffer to the often grotesque reality. Camilla plans to poison the Middletons after a visit to Kate's parents; Fergie takes Beatrice and Eugenie to Glastonbury; and Meghan catches Harry in a compromising situation with his sister-in-law.

TV review: The Windsors, series three, episode one

The main reason it works is that it's not afraid to tear in to all of the characters and mock them relentlessly, William and Kate perhaps get the easiest ride but the others are portrayed as either fucking idiots, downright evil (in the case of Camilla, at least), or conniving scumbags (Andrew, then).

The Windsors review

The creators of The Windsors have shown an almost psychic insight into the woes of the Royal Family.

The Windsors, Series 3, Channel 4 review

The perfect timing for the return of the bogus royals.

The Windsors, review

A rude, crude return for the brattish little cousin to The Crown.

Michael Hogan, The Telegraph, 25th February 2020

The royal satire is back for a third season, and the truth seems to be increasingly merging with fiction. Prince Charles (Harry Enfield) proposes a strike in protest at the meagre rise in the sovereign grant, while Harry and Meghan propose a move to North America to escape the tabloids. A laugh-heavy response to The Crown.

The Windsors creators actually predicted Megxit

While most of us were surprised when Meghan and Harry announced they were stepping back from the royal family, turns out that the people behind C4 show The Windsors had already predicted.
