We have got to talk about this as a family.
I know many, many of us here are avid supporters of Britain’s reigning royal family!
(<3 u Wills/Kate/Kate’s hair/George/Unborn Baby Cambridge/Lupo!)
And we know that we’re not alone in our admiration of the Windsors.
E! knows this too. They’ve decided to capitalize on the Anglophilia sweeping our nation with THIS:
I AM SO EXCITED.
This looks like total hot garbage and I cannot even wait to watch it.
Let’s break down this cast:
- Elizabeth Hurley as THE QUEEN
- Joan Collins (!) as The Queen Mum
- Peter Pevensie from Narnia as Bad Boy Prince Harrywill
- Rando Unknown Actresses as Some Kind of Variation on Beatrice & Eugenie
It’s been far too long since I watched a show for pure, campy trash value.
I hope E! can pull this off. It’s actually harder than it looks to create a perfectly campy, self-aware soap opera without it veering into tongue-in-cheek disaster territory or “V. SERIOUS BSNS” territory.
LET ME HAVE THIS, E!
The Royals COMIN’ ATCHA ON THE IDES OF MARCH.
