About the Show Less...

A satire where love, politics and royalty collide. Read More >

A handsome young heir to the throne falls for a very ‘unsuitable’ girl – and finds himself at war with a panicked prime minister. Suddenly, it’s not just the future of the Royal Family that’s at stake, but the very identity of Britain itself.
