Channel 4 has commissioned a second series of satirical comedy soap opera, The Windsors.

The six-part series – which is currently attracting a consolidated audience of 1.6 million per episode – returns to parody the British royal family once again played by an ensemble cast featuring, Harry Enfield (Prince Charles), Haydn Gwynne (Camilla) Morgana Robinson (Pippa), Louise Ford (Kate), Hugh Skinner (Wills), Richard Goulding (Harry), Katy Wix, (Fergie), Ellie White, (Beatrice), Celeste Dring (Eugenie), Tim Wallers (Prince Andrew) and Matthew Cottle (Prince Edward).

Made by Noho Film and TV (Tennison), the thirty-minute episodes are written by Bert Tyler-Moore and George Jeffrie (co-creators of Star Stories).

C4’s Head of Comedy Phil Clarke, says; “We’re a nation who appears to enjoy poking fun at the institution of the monarchy almost as much as we enjoy staring at a hospital door waiting for a royal baby to be born and I am delighted to welcome The Windsors back to Channel 4 comedy for second series.”

The Windsors will begin filming later this year for broadcast on Channel 4 in 2017.
