“The Royals”, the first scripted series from E!, is a show that is gaining lots of hype. Some compare it to Gossip Girl, the drama about Upper East Siders trying to navigate life, who used the same tactics to draw in viewers.
According to IMDB “Power is everything, there are no limits and trust is nonexistent for the royal family featured in this drama series.”
It’s set in modern day London and stars the royal family who are struggling to stay together as a family. A dead son, an overbearing mother, a jealous brother and a King who ultimately wants to abolish the monarchy. Although this show is an exaggerated account of the royal family, it does have a certain genuine quality.
Prince Liam, played by William Moseley, and Princess Eleanor, played by Alexandra Park, are 20 something’s who just want to navigate their way through the hectic life of being royalty. While Queen Helena, played by Elizabeth Hurley, seems to be the parent who they can never impress.
IMDB said, “The monarchs’ rebellious daughter, Princess Eleanor, provides lots of fodder for the tabloids with a life full of activities that include sex, drugs and even hung-over helicopter rides. Her twin brother, Prince Liam, is a playboy who takes full advantage of being one of the planet’s most eligible bachelors.”
As this series continues on, I predict it will get juicier and juicier. The drama unfolding is intense and will keep you wanting more.
Though the situation is very extraordinary, “The Royals” is a well-written and exciting show that speaks to the hearts of any young adult trying to make a name for themselves in the world. Making a name for yourself is a difficult process and “The Royals” could be somewhat of an inspiration for struggling college students. Check out “The Royals” Sundays at 10 on E and be inspired!
