The life of the Duchess of Sussex is set to be made into a programme on the BBC. The Sixth in Line to be King and I is a 15-minute musical comedy that will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on New Year's Day.

According to The Telegraph, the show will "look ahead to what promises to be an exciting 2019 for the happy royal couple as they expect their first child in the spring" and will be an "inspired celebration of Meghan Markle's life to date".

The programme will feature an episode of the Radio 4 series called 15 Minute Musical, which has in the past focused storylines on Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn and the EU Referendum.

The episode centred on the duchess will be played by the regular cast, with Pippa Evans taking on the role of Meghan, and with Dave Lamb and Richie Webb also taking part. Kensington Palace has not been consulted on the contents of the show.

Radio 4's episode on Meghan will not be the only royal-inspired radio show to air on the BBC this Holiday season. Prince Charles will be a guest on Radio 3's Private Passions, where he will discuss his musical loves and hates.

We could not be more curious about what exactly a "musical comedy" about the Duchess will look like.
