Series 2 of The Windsors ups the absurdity and the satire of this cracking TV show, with Vicki Pepperdine’s Anne a real highlight
“You lied to me when you went to bed with Nicola Sturgeon in her holiday persona of Flame”
Series 2 of The Windsors ups the absurdity and the satire of this cracking TV show as Theresa May (Gillian Bevan), Nicola Sturgeon (a genius Amy Booth-Steel) and Donald Trump (Corey Johnson) (and Ellie Goulding too – nice to see Lizzy Connolly on TV) all make appearances to further lampoon our blessed Royal Family.
Harry Enfield’s Prince Charles comes in for some particular stick as his organic credentials, urban planning skills and predilection for interfering in geopolitical affairs all get raked over the coals to great comic effect. Elsewhere, most everyone else gets away with flights of fancy rather than having their actions similarly scrutinised, for the most part.
Hugh Skinner’s Wills is a class act once again, particularly when coccooned away with Flame, a Highland lassie incognito. And Richard Goulding’s Harry continues on his gormless, bumptious way that is so hard not to find endearing.
The arrival of Princess Anne, played with pinched perfection by Vicki Pepperdine, is endlessly amusing too, especially with her exits and entrances. Another series it is hard not to recommend.
