Is E!’s ‘The Royals’ any good?


So yesterday the much anticipated E! series based on the British monarchy debuted in the UK; The Royals. I have to say that I was interested in seeing if it was any good. Which is why I tivoed the first episode and having just finished watching it I thought I would share my thoughts with you.

I think that I am going to continue watching the series, its kind of trashy but I think it will end up being a bit of a guilty pleasure. It’s more like gossip girl mixed with the Tudors than anything close to the actual royal family maybe because our actual king an queen are a lot older. That being said who doesn’t love a bit of debauchery in the morning. It’s filled with fashionable outfits and witty one-liners perfect for Twitter.

Buzzfeed describe it as ‘amazingly terrible’ and I think that sums it up pretty well actually. Check out their 13 Questions British People will ask… article. I don’t know if the plot or storyline is going to go anywhere I mean how many times can you do the commoner falls in love with the prince of [insert real or made up principality or monarchy here] storyline but the U.S must enjoy it as E! have renewed is for a second series. I have set a series link for the rest of series 1 so we shall see how it progresses.

Check out one of the trailers…
