“This OTT spoof was so gloriously on the nose that, at the mention of Meghan Markle, I fear I am inadvertently starting to picture not the real thing but her earnest avatar played by Kathryn Drysdale. May they all be summoned to the palace to receive well-earned gongs.”
Jasper Rees, The Telegraph

“It is hilarious – a treasure chest of cheek – and you can get away with a lot by being hilarious. I even felt a bit patriotic that this was the response of a public-service broadcaster to a royal wedding.”
Sam Wollaston, The Guardian

“The lèse-majesté is completely off the scale. How Meghan might have reacted to last night’s climax alone, as the royals grooved wildly in slow-motion to the novelty reggae hit Boom Shack-a-Lak, is interesting to imagine.”
James Jackson, The Times

“It’s a wicked send-up, the most ruthless caricature of the Royal Family since Spitting Image portrayed the Queen Mum as a gin-swilling, chain-smoking Brummie. But it’s also hugely affectionate. This Royal Wedding special was bursting with ideas like a box of exploding confetti.”
Christopher Stevens, Daily Mail

“The lines were clever, the quirks sharply observed. But you wondered if this was, like many monarchs in history books, a joke that went on far too long.”

“Homage or cliche? It can be a thin line, but two black cop leads, that is something to cheer. As are the car chases. That is what it is about, more than the ins and outs of the case or the people involved: the ride. Very happy to go along with that.”
Sam Wollaston, The Guardian

“On the whole, this was a fun and funny hour. Some of the interviewees were very tenuously connected to Markle, but they were lurid and open enough to keep the show entertaining from beginning to end.”

“Balanced between hope and despair, made with one hand tied behind its back, this was a searching and sensitive portrait.”
