Catherine Tate leads the Queen of Oz as Princess Georgiana, who's shipped off down under to become the titular royal. There are two reasons the monarchy's made this decision: they want to prevent Australia from leaving the Commonwealth, and they'd prefer to keep her more out of the public eye to try and stop her regular faux-pas and scandals from damaging the future of the institution. 

Of the character, Tate said: "She's very difficult, very hard to work for, and doesn't make it easy for anyone. She's spoilt, entitled, and deeply unpleasant which of course makes her a great character to play."

Doctor Who fans will also know her as Donna Noble, one of David Tennant's companions (she's returning for the Doctor Who 60th-anniversary specials, too), and you may also know her from The Office or Big School.
