The Windsors returns for a second hilarious series tonight on Channel 4
The hilariously funny royal comedy, The Windsors, premieres with its second series tonight (Wednesday, July 5) at 10pm on Channel 4.
The programme returns for more Royal Family satire this evening and stars Harry Enfield, Haydn Gwynne, Morgana Robinson, Louise Ford, Hugh Skinner, Richard Goulding, Katy Wix, Ellie White, Celeste Dring, Tim Wallers and Matthew Cottle.
Alongside the usual Royal favourites, there are also a couple of exciting character additions to the show this year. Theresa May and Donald Trump are to set appear in the storyline this time around, and we’re sure they will be more than favourable portrayals…
When asked to describe the show, Gwynne (who plays Camilla) recently explained: “I would call it sublimely daft, I suppose. It’s spoofing not so much the royal family as media portrayals of the royal family. It’s spoofing a particular brand of American TV soap opera. And there are also lots of references to famous films and so on – there was Rebecca in the first series, and you get a bit of The Man in the Iron Mask. But it’s a particularly British sort of comedy.”
She also spoke about what it is like to work so closely alongside Harry Enfield: “I love working with Harry. Apart from anything else, he’s a really sweet, gentle man. It’s a really lovely cast, we really enjoy each other. Working with Harry, when we’re rehearsing, I never know what he’s going to come up with. We do just laugh a lot.
“Actually, we didn’t have a lot to do together in the Christmas Special, my storyline took me off in a different direction – so when we were having meetings about what was going to happen in the second series, I did actually check that I’d have a lot to do with Harry.”
If you cannot wait until 10pm to watch the series, Channel 4 has released a trailer, which you can watch below:
