Meghan’s mu­si­cal pre­sented with a smile

The Courier-Mail - - NEWS -

THE BBC is set to broad­cast a mu­si­cal com­edy based on the life of the Duchess of Sus­sex.

The Ra­dio 4 pro­gram, en­ti­tled The Sixth In Line To Be King And I, will air on New Year’s Day and will look at Meghan’s life and her fu­ture as she ex­pects her first child.

The 15-minute piece, in the style of Rodgers and Ham­mer­stein, is de­scribed as an “in­spired cel­e­bra­tion of Meghan Markle’s life to date”.

It will also look ahead “to what prom­ises to be an ex­cit­ing 2019 for the happy royal cou­ple as they ex­pect their first child in the spring”.

Meghan and Prince Harry had their own mu­si­cal ex­pe­ri­ence in Au­gust when they saw hit mu­si­cal Hamil­ton in Lon­don and met the cast back­stage.

The ra­dio mu­si­cal, in which come­di­enne Pippa Evans will play Meghan, is part of the 15- Minute Mu­si­cals series. Also on the BBC, Prince Charles will dis­cuss the role mu­sic has played in his life in the lon­grun­ning Ra­dio 3 show Pri­vate Pas­sions.

In the pro­gram, on Sun­day De­cem­ber 30, he will talk about the mu­sic per­formed at his wed­ding to the Duchess of Corn­wall, which will be played along with a work he per­son­ally con­ducted with mem­bers of the Phil­har­mo­nia Or­ches­tra.
