Now that Prince Harry has moved on from his alleged fling with Ellie Goulding, The Windsors has had to cast its very own Meghan Markle.

Although Harry's girlfriend Meghan is no stranger to the small screen herself, it's Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps' Kathryn Drysdale who's been signed up for the part in Channel 4's satire series.

According to the Radio Times, Drysdale – who also starred in St Trinian's as Taylor, leader of the 'chav' gang – will be joining the likes of Harry Enfield and Morgana Robinson on the show.

The Windsors, a nutty-but-totally-loveable spoof of the royal family, was renewed for a second series last summer after proving a hit with comedy lovers.

Not afraid of any kind of parody, the series has previously turned Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice into radical fundamentalists and even given the Duchess of Cambridge Ebola. Naturally.

Announcing the upcoming second series, Channel 4's head of comedy Phil Clarke declared: "We're a nation who appears to enjoy poking fun at the institution of the monarchy almost as much as we enjoy staring at a hospital door waiting for a royal baby to be born and I am delighted to welcome The Windsors back to Channel 4 comedy for a second series."

The Windsors, also starring Not Going Out's Katie Wix, W1A's Hugh Skinner and Citizen Khan's Matthew Cottle, will return to Channel 4 later this year.
