It’s our 100th episode! To celebrate, we’ve prepared something a little different this week: our guide to abolishing the monarchy. Why could it happen? How long would it take? What would ex-royal life look like for the royals? And what would the country even be called?! We answer all of these and more, plus a quick look at some topical stories, including Prince William and Kate Middleton’s return to work, Prince Louis’s birthday portrait and paparazzi shots of Meghan and Archie.

Prince William tries to keep calm and carry on with a secret Covid-19 diagnosis — but he won’t keep us quiet… While the royals get busy changing their profile pictures for Remembrance Day, Prince Andrew makes secret visits to see the Queen, and Prince Philip is dragged back from Sandringham to the HMS Bubble. Plus, we discuss Prince Charles’s Vogue debut, Prince Harry’s plea to lay a wreath at the Cenotaph and the Queen’s first outing in a mask.
CW: racism, suicide
Once upon a time, in a mystical kingdom built on colonialism, fear and emotional repression, a lost prince fell in love with an American lifestyle blogger. On entering the castle, an evil queen stole her voice, and our lifestyle blogger learned she would have to endure racism, isolation and flesh-coloured tights in stoic silence for the rest of her days, until finally! She and her prince escaped to a far-off land of opportunity, Madea movies and 16-bathroom homes, where she found her voice once more — just in time to share it with the nation’s Queen of Talk. Did the interview live up to the hype? Listen in and find out! And may that old castle crumble and its monarchy fall... that’s our happily ever after.
