Series 3 of the Channel 4 satirical comedy about the royal family will see a completely new side to Prince Harry.

Tom Durant-Pritchard (The Crown, Judy and Feel Good) will take up the role of the young prince.

“Under the orders of his wife Meghan (Kathryn Drysdale), Harry tries to replace his hard drinking and rugger-bugger ways with mindfulness and mint tea”, Channel 4 said in a press statement. “Fortunately, though, his IQ remains unchanged: 8”.

Tom Durant-Pritchard said: “I am thrilled to be joining The Windsors family… it has been a pleasure playing such a well-loved character.”

Writers Bert Tyler-Moore and George Jeffrie added: “Tom was brilliant and fitted into our Royal Family perfectly.

“Harry’s got plenty on his plate this series – one week he gets mistaken for a brain surgeon and has to perform a highly invasive brain operation.

“Does he pull it off? You’ll have to tune in to find out! (But if you’re too busy: no).”

The Windsors series 3 will air in the new year on Channel 4.
