House Of Windsor, The (ITV 1994, Leslie Phillips, Warren Clarke)

Published

on

Sitcom The House of Windsor took us behind the scenes with the staff of Buckingham Palace. When the series begins the Royals have just appointed PR man Max Kelvin as their principal press officer. His rather coarse, abrasive style doesn’t go down well with the rest of the staff at at Buckingham Palace.

His chief antagonist is Lord Montague Bermondsey, the Lord Chamberlain, who believes that he has a duty to preserve “traditional values”.

The other staff are Caroline Finch, Sir Nicholas Foulsham, Lady Sharpcott, Giles Huntingdon, Danny Jackson, Ray Barker, Kate Hargreaves and Ambrose Stebbings.

Unlike The Windsors, none of the Royal Family are actually seen in the show.
