Royal Princes William and Harry are in the media again, not for hitting a journalist or for any more deaths in their family, but because they've been given their very own television show.
The slapstick show, provisionally titled Windsors!, will see the young lads ride a three-wheeled bicycle to some foreign country where they will meet its people and do outrageous things, all edited down to six episodes of 28 minutes each. Producers have indicated that the third saddle will be filled by a royal bodyguard and butler, who will do all the peddling and serve tea and cakes every 2 hours.
The opening credits will be all sped up and show the lads getting into trouble with their mum, Her Majesty the Queen, and cycling away from Buckingham Palace really fast and being chased by the Royal Household Cavalry.
The plot line for the first episode will be their arrival in Africa, where Harry is promptly elected President of the fictional country of Zambaba, because of his outrageous white skin and red hair, but is then forced into a power share agreement with William, which breaks down when they can't agree Cabinet posts. Things get even zanier when the original President called Morgan the Pirate returns to reclaim his office. Meanwhile, the bodyguard cum butler, decides to make some money of his own by selling the princes' stuff on eBay and hosting a talent show in the United States of America.
Royal watcher, Philipa Peregrine Double-Barrelled Worcestersauce said "This show is likely to be a hit with the oiks and will earn their Royal Highnesses a bob or two."
