All hail The Royals

Elizabeth Hurley and Joan Collins get regal


Life is too short to pretend you’re not going to watch The Royals - a new drama about a fictionalized British royal family. It has all the trappings of deliciously addictive TV...

The trailer (watch below) promises anarchy in the monarchy and the tagline ‘Money. Sex. Drugs. Power’ pretty much sums up the the kind of content we can expect.

In a stroke of casting genius Elizabeth Hurley will play Queen Helena, the wife of the King of England and devastatingly glamorous Joan Collins will play the Grand Duchess (Hurley’s mother) – picking up where her formidable Dynasty character left off. We have E! drama (home of Keeping Up With the Kardashians) and the creator of One Tree Hill to thank.

The first episode airs on 15 March (and a second season has already commissioned). Be very excited.
