Kara takes on the Duchess of Cambridge in The Windsors play

Written by the creators of the Channel 4 TV show, George Jeffrie and Bert Tyler-Moore, the very tongue-in-cheek comedy pokes light-hearted fun at the monarchy by turning the likes of Prince Charles, Prince Harry and the Duchess of Cornwall into caricatures of themselves.

Meanwhile, creator Bert recently explained the decision to not include the Queen in the series. "I think they thought it best to steer clear of the Queen and George and I agreed," he told the BBC.

"She's a hugely respected figure, even among people in Britain who aren't at all monarchist. We were very happy to let her be. As the play shows, there are plenty of other people to take the mickey out of. Some characters are more fantastical than others."

He added: "I've tried to build in references to recent events, like when Harry announced he's to publish his memoirs next year. But things change so often that not everything can stay in."
