Prince Harry brutally mocked again as Channel 4 poke fun at his fight with Prince William

NewsPrince Harry brutally mocked again as Channel 4 poke fun at his fight with Prince William

Prince Harry has been brutally mocked again as a Coronation Special of the hit Channel 4 spoof programme, The Windsors, is set to dramatise the alleged fight between the Duke and his brother, Prince William.

Programme makers behind The Windsors released three new clips ahead of Sunday’s (April 29) Coronation Special, which will detail the alleged fight between the brothers, as well as poke fun at cutting spending for the King Charles’s Coronation by holding the ceremony in a Holiday Lodge Express in Slough.

The satirical portrayal of the Royal Family first aired on Channel 4 in 2016 and it is now taking on its fourth series this year, along with a Coronation Special.

In the teaser clips, the spoof version of the now-notorious fight between William and Harry, as detailed in the Duke’s memoir Spare, sees the two princes sparring before William accidentally hits his brother, reports MailOnline.

William, played by actor Hugo Skinner, then apologises to Harry, played by Richard Goudling, before the pair clink pints of beer.

In the show, William then says: “We had a fight. It was a bit of horseplay.” This comment pokes fun at the chapter in Harry’s memoir that details how he lost his virginity, in a field with an older woman who he said “liked macho horses and who treated me like a young stallion”.

The clip then transitions to Santa Barbara, where Harry and Meghan Markle, played by Kathryn Drysdale, are collecting eggs from their chickens – a scene that was played out during the couple’s infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Talking about William, Harry says: “Actually, I’ve been thinking about him a lot recently,” before a black and white scene appears of the two princes wearing boxing gloves before Harry collapses in the ring.

“I remember our fight so clearly,” he says. “I haven’t exaggerated any of it.”

Turning to Meghan, he adds: “Did I ever tell you he always got the best bedroom at Balmoral? And he had a Star Wars duvet and I had Paddington, which is really babyish.”

In his autobioraphy, Spare, Harry claimed that William injured his back by pushing him onto a dog bowl after a fight between the brothers sparked over a conversation about the Duke’s relationship with his brother, rows with the press, and his wife Meghan.

Harry claimed that his brother grabbed him by the collar, ripping his necklace, and pushed him over in the kitchen, causing him to land on a dog bowl which shattered and hurt his back.

Elsewhere in teasers released for The Windsors Coronation Special, King Charles, played by Harry Enfield, daydreams about the upcoming ceremony.

The actor says: “Finally, it’s going to happen. Westminster Abbey packed to the gills. World leaders staring at me in awe. No, no President Biden no need to kneel. Crowds chanting my name.”

Meanwhile, William teams up with Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, played by Amit Shah, to lobby for a budget Coronation in times of austerity.

“I’ve consulted with the country’s top headhunting firms and based purely on merit,” says William, “the best person to organise a slim-down no-frills budget Coronation is…”

At which point, Princess Anne, played by Vicki Pepperdine, pops up saying: “I’ve cancelled the Abbey and booked the Holiday Lodge Express in Slough.”

The Windsors Coronation Special airs on Sunday at 9pm on Channel 4 and All 4.
