Allow us to introduce you to your newest obsession — The Royals.
The series surrounds a fictional, modern royal family– and all of their dirty laundry. The E! network drama was the brainchild of One Tree Hill creator Mark Schwahn and stars Elizabeth Hurley as the Queen of England — a genius casting decision if we do say so ourselves. The cast is gorgeous, the accents are dreamy and the drama is BIG.
The hour-long drama is going into its third season this year and promises more drama and more major twists. If you’ve never seen The Royals, allow us to introduce you to what we promise will be your new favourite show.
These are the reasons why you should start watching The Royals:

It’s often directed by James Lafferty — aka OTH’s Nathan Scott

It features a very grown up William Moseley
You’ll recognize him as Peter Pevensie from The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Yeah, he’s done good.
You can watch him sing Disney Songs
Definitely no singing career in his future — but we love him anyway.
Even the bodyguard is smouldering
Everyone, meet Jasper.
It’s royalty with a spoonful of sass
The fashion is the stuff our dreams are made of
