It turns out that Angela was indeed innocent of the crime, but believed that it was her younger sister Angela who committed it, and so doesn't defend herself in court. So who really did it? You'll have to watch the episode to find out!

Sophie tied the knot to her royal husband Lord Frederick Windsor back in 2009, and the pair share two children, Maud and Isabella. Speaking to Tatler about being unable to work over much of 2020 due to the lockdown, she said: "It's been alright, but I've been frustrated and tired and stressed out like everyone else. 

"Children need to socialise and they get extremely bored if they don't, and I've not been covering myself in glory with this online learning thing... The teachers have been really brilliant, but I've been loath to stick my six-year-old in front of a screen all day long."
