The Wind­sors Royal Wed­ding Spe­cial One to watch

Tues­day, Chan­nel 4, 9pm

Belfast Telegraph - Weekend - - WEEKEND TV -

As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle get ready for their big day next week­end, have they found time to watch any of the many doc­u­men­taries about royal wed­dings and their own re­la­tion­ship that have cropped up in the sched­ules? Well, if they fancy a bit of light re­lief from see­ing ex­perts spec­u­lat­ing about their lives, they could al­ways watch this spe­cial edi­tion of Chan­nel 4’s royal sit­com The Wind­sors.

As Richard Gould­ing, who plays Prince Harry, points out, there may be one or two facts thrown in there, but ac­cu­racy was def­i­nitely not the main con­cern.

“There’s a scene in it of a sort of mock-up photo shoot of the one Meghan and Harry did in Kens­ing­ton Palace, so I looked at that a bit,” he says. “But I didn’t do any re­ally deep re­search, I must ad­mit.”

He adds: “I re­ally ad­mire Harry. Go­ing way back, he had to deal with his mum’s death and it’s not easy, to put it mildly, grow­ing up in the public eye like that. And he does it all with a sense of hu­mour.”

Let’s hope that sense of hu­mour ex­tends to this episode of The Wind­sors as it finds Harry and his bride Meghan (Kathryn Drys­dale) deal­ing with their wed­ding prepa­ra­tions, which in this ver­sion of events in­cludes in­tro­duc­ing Charles (Harry En­field) to his new in­laws and an al­co­hol-free stag night.

Mean­while, Pippa (Mor­gana Robin­son) has a vi­o­lent re­ac­tion to the im­pend­ing mar­riage, Camilla (Haydn Gwynne) is stir­ring up trou­ble and Wills (Hugh Skin­ner) takes time out from deal­ing with his new ar­rival to pro­tect his sub­jects from Wind­sor’s evil Tram­p­catcher (Paul Kaye).
