Faux-reality comedy following two young British aristocrats as they venture outside the palace and across the pond on their first trip to the USA
Series 1 Summary
Just a hop, skip and a jump away from the throne, siblings Georgie (Ed Gamble) and Poppy Carlton (Amy Hoggart) were born into a life of privilege, splendour and royalty... almost.
Faux-reality comedy Almost Royal follows the two young British aristocrats as they venture outside the palace and across the pond on their first trip to the United States, where they interact with real-life, unsuspecting everyday Americans.
Crowns and cricket are traded for tobacco and baseball, their country estate is swapped for Beverly Hills and, instead of tea with the duke and duchess, there's a ride across a Texan ranch.
Georgie and Poppy are about to have their silver spoons plucked from their mouths and their thrones pulled right out from under them.
Episode 1 - Los Angeles
The very unconventional 'royal' tour of America commences in Los Angeles. After a bicycle ride around Beverly Hills and a consultation with a plastic surgeon, the aristocratic siblings meet with some Hollywood movers and shakers in an attempt to launch Poppy's acting career.
Episode 2 - Boston
As they continue their stateside tour, Georgie and Poppy travel to Boston, Massachusetts, to discover a bit of American history.
They learn about the British role in the Revolutionary War, come away parched from a Tea Party meeting, 'trash talk' with a local baseball team and attempt to rewrite history during a battle re-enactment.
Episode 3 - Texas
Georgie and Poppy explore the Texan way of life. When they're not saddling up on a ranch or embracing the culture, they're hitting the studio to record their own Tejano music, watching the bidding at a cattle auction and being thrown into the air by a team of cheerleaders.
Episode 4 - New York
True Brits Georgie and Poppy arrive in a very chilled New York, where a local hipster in Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighbourhood introduces them to the art of proper coffee making.
A social media guru teaches them all about tweeting and selfies, and Poppy makes an unforgettable appearance at New York Fashion Week.
Episode 5 - Detroit
Intrepid British aristocrats Georgie and Poppy receive a real culture shock when they visit Detroit, Michigan.
They ruin their manicures working as car mechanics, help demolish a derelict house, get caught up in a rap battle, brush up on their ballet twirls, and step into a wrestling ring in front of a hostile audience.
Episode 6 - Washington, D.C.
The aristocratic pair continue their stateside tour in Washington, D.C. as they reach into the very heart of American politics.
As well as hiring themselves a political coach, they meet up with a congressman at the House of Representatives.
They also come face-to-face with some formidable females at a shooting event before a night at the opera ends with something precious getting left behind.
Episode 7 - Nashville
The regal Carlton siblings are in Nashville, Tennessee, where Poppy seizes the opportunity to launch herself as a country-pop fusion music star.
Georgie gets bitten by a fish and also makes an embarrassing confession when he comes face-to-face with an American icon.
