I'm obsessed with the British and royalty, so I started watching this show for giggles. But it has turned out to be surprising amazing.
  1. The Writing
    Honestly, I would put the writing for this show on par with The West Wing or Scandal.
  2. The Plot Twists
    Every time I think I have something figured out, they manage to throw me off course. I love a show that always keeps me guessing.
  3. Elizabeth Hurley as queen
    I mean, come on. Perfection.
  4. Joan Collins as the Queen's mum
    All hail!
  5. Alexandra Park as Princess Eleanor
    I haven't seen her in anything else, but her emotional battles and party lifestyle are done with incredible nuances to her character's inner turmoil. I know that sounds pretentious as fuck, but trust me.
  6. Jake Maskall as Asshole Brother To The King
    He's a huge dick but he plays it so well
  7. Merritt Patterson as Ophelia Pryce
    First of all, huge props to the writers for such a great name. Secondly, her on and off again romance is something we've all been through.
