Their roasting on US show South Park might have been painful, but worse could be to come for Harry and Meghan.
The Mail on Sunday has learned that the Sussexes will be mercilessly mocked in a one-off special of Channel 4’s The Windsors, with a plotline based on their as-yet unconfirmed attendance at the Coronation on May 6.
With Channel 4 bosses deciding to centre their Coronation coverage around the hit sitcom, the episode’s producers say they are spoiled for choice on plotlines thanks to the real-life drama unfolding on a daily basis.
Filming began last week and an on-set source has described the Harry and Meghan debacle as ‘manna from Heaven’ for the writers – but they will not include the Sussexes’ recent Frogmore Cottage eviction to maintain the surprise ending.
A source said that Meghan and Harry are expected to attend the Coronation in the show as they badly need the money.
Harry Enfield as King Charles
‘The “will-they-won’t-they” return of Harry and Meghan is absolutely part of the storyline in the series… the writers are loving it,’ the source added.
Another plotline will see King Charles, played by Harry Enfield, battle it out with Prince William, played by Hugh Skinner, over whether or not to streamline the ceremony.
The most recent hour-long episode of the show was in 2018, when the Royal Wedding Special aired to celebrate the marriage of Meghan and Harry.
‘It was written that Harry and Meghan quit the UK after their wedding to move to America,’ the source added.
‘Then it happened in real life. It’s amazing how in-touch with things the writers are.’
The first three series of The Windsors were so popular that, in 2021, it was adapted into a West End show. A fourth series will air later this year.
