Kathryn Drysdale’s breakout role was as ‘Louise Brooks’ in Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps.

But after a successful career in comedy series’, drama, film and the theatre, she’s been cast in a significant role as Genevieve’ in the upcoming Shonda Rhimes period drama series, Bridgerton and she reprises her role as Meghan Markle in the series 3 of The Windsors. The satirical comedy soap opera about the royal family – The Windsors – returns to Channel 4 on Tuesday 25th February at 10pm (all episodes available to stream on All4 after).

With the country divided, the government have asked the Royals to cheer up Britain. Wills (Hugh Skinner), Kate (Louise Ford), Harry (Tom Durant-Pritchard) and Meghan (Kathryn Drysdale) are excited to bring the British people together; meanwhile, Prince Charles (Harry Enfield), Princess Anne (Vicki Pepperdine), Prince Edward (Matthew Cottle) and Prince Andrew (Tim Wallers), are striking from all royal duties in protest of the minimal rise to the Sovereign Grant. Confident that this will only make The Fab Four even more popular, Camilla (Haydn Gwynne) plots to cause a rift between them. Beatrice (Ellie White) has set up a new drinks brand called ‘GinVoddieRum’ and wants Eugenie (Celeste Dring) to be her business partner. The older royals are disheartened when nobody seems to notice that they’re striking, so Charles tries to persuade Wills to join forces; Wills is torn and is given advice by a portrait of Queen Victoria.
