TV royalty has come to St Albans to film the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Not the actual Royal Family though! Instead it’s the cast of Channel 4’s sitcom about Britain’s ruling dynasty filming a one-off special for The Windsors.

Film crews were spotted around St Albans Abbey, which was used last year as a filming location for Netflix’s The Crown, including W1A’s Hugh Skinner who plays Prince William.

Head of comedy at Channel 4 Fiona McDermott said: “I am thrilled to have The Windsors back on Channel 4 for a royal wedding special and can’t wait to see what Meghan’s dress looks like, if Fergie is invited and most importantly what fascinators Beatrice and Eugenie will be wearing!”

The show also stars Harry Enfield as Prince Charles, Katy Wix as Sarah Ferguson, Richard Goulding as Prince Harry and Kathryn Drysdale as Meghan.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
