Channel 4 has renewed their royal comedy series The Windsors for a third season. Six episodes have been ordered for the show’s third season, which is set to premiere later this year.
The Windsors takes a satricial look at the British Royal family. The comedy series is produced by Noho Film and TV and stars Harry Enfield, Haydn Gwynne, Hugh Skinner, Louise Ford, Kathryn Drysdale, Richard Goulding, Celeste Dring, Ellie White, Katy Wix and Morgana Robinson.
The Windsors is produced for Channel 4 by independent production company Noho Film and TV. Bert Tyler-Moore and George Jeffrie are penning the scripts, while Camilla Campbell and Robert Wulff-Cochrane serve as executive producers. The show’s third season was commissioned by Channel 4’s Head of Comedy Fiona McDermott and Channel 4’s Commissioning Editor for Comedy Jon Petrie. “We’re very excited to announce that The Windsors is coming back for a third series”, Petrie said. “You never really hear anyone talk about the Royal Family these days, so hopefully this show can help to change that…”
In the show’s third season, the root of Wills’ and Harry’s feud will be resolved during one deadly weekend when they face the biggest challenge of their lives – trying to get their Duke of Edinburgh Gold Awards. Meanwhile, new mum Meghan finds Kate stiff and ‘up herself’. Could she have been replaced by a Stepford style robot designed to make her seem stiff and ‘up herself’? Elsewhere Camilla goes the full Princess Margaret – gin/fags/Mustique/Rolling Stones – leaving Charles with time to indulge a dalliance with the beautiful new manageress of the Highgrove gift shop. They fall in love when she asks if £80 is too much to ask for a jar of honey.
Eugenie and Beatrice are still best chums, working girls making it in the real world – they now get up at 11.30 every morning, not just Monday to Friday. But is Eugenie happy with her new husband’s career? What exactly is a ‘tequila ambassador’? And what do the family make of Bea’s glamorous new boyfriend? And of course there’s Fergie – still trying to get Prince Andrew back up the aisle. She may marry him, but she’ll never make an honest man of him. Does Pippa still hold a torch for Harry? And will she let the fact they’re both married with children get in the way of what she wants? Will Charles, fed up with waiting for the top job, quit England and take up the offer to become… King of America?
