It’s fashion week in London, which means everyone is horny? Well, that’s what Princess Eleanor thinks! So who’s getting hot and heavy in a car and whose claws come out?
After Ophelia (Merritt Patterson) dumped Prince Liam (William Moseley) in episode two of The Royals, we weren’t sure if he’d go running right back to Gemma (Sophie Colquhoun). Well, he decided instead to steer clear and do a little partying of his own.
‘The Royals’: Fashion Week Makes Eleanor & The Queen Fight
Prince Liam tried to distract himself from missing Ophelia by hooking up with random girls — and she was just trying to hide from paparazzi. Luckily, she had the help from Nick (Tom Ainsley), a cute guy from her school, who helped her to escape from the paps and got very flirty very fast.
So, Liam’s sister took him out to help him chill out a bit, and escape from the king-to-be role for the night. However, when Gemma demanded to uh, get a little freaky with Liam while driving, she crasheed into a phone booth. Liam, like a gentleman, didn’t want to just leave her there, but his security and Jasper wouldn’t let him stay and get caught. Jasper (Tom Austen)’s best way to force him to leave was knock him out.
He lied to the King (Vincent Regan), saying he wasn’t there, and on Eleanor (Alexandra Park)’s demand — did not rat our Jasper for punching him. Sure, Eleanor acted like she saved Jasper’s job because she wants to fairly defeat him, but we know it’s because she has feelings deep down. However, Liam’s secret isn’t completely safe — Cyrus (Jake Maskall) knows what happened with Liam and made sure Liam knows that he knows.
Mother V. Daughter
Meanwhile, Princess Eleanor was busy getting into her own trouble.
It wasn’t only Jasper whose up against Eleanor — it was also her own mother, the Queen (Elizabeth Hurley). The princess decided to plan a lavish fashion show for fashion week — the same night as her mother’s. Of course it wasn’t be easy. The queen was ready to do anything to beat her daughter, and actually had Cyrus (Jake Maskall) blackmail his daughters in order to find out where the location of Eleanor’s show was, and then she stole it from her.
Eleanor’s shows got rave reviews — but while she thought she really did great, her mom broke it to her that she actually planted the stories because “when you succeed, the monarchy succeeds.” So, basically, her mom let her win. Naturally, she was pissed. Enter Jasper, who took that moment to reveal his true identity to Eleanor — and tell her that the Queen was lying and the reviews about how amazing she is are true.
Can these two just be together already, PLEASE?
