Have you ever wondered what it’s like to live like a royal? Thanks to E!’s first-ever scripted series, The Royals, you’ll soon get an inside look — albeit fictional. The first trailer for the show (set to come out sometime in early 2015) dropped today, August 25, and it’s just as juicy as we had hoped!


The series is led by the amazing Elizabeth Hurley who plays Queen Helena (kickass name, right) and also features Alexandra Park (Princess Eleanor), William Moseley (Prince Liam), and Vincent Regan (King Simon). They’re a royal family who likes to flaunt what they’ve got all while leading a country.

In the trailer, Queen Helena gives us a sneak peek at how scandalous her family truly is, saying, “My daughter’s vagina was on the cover of four tabloids, my son is dating an employee, and my husband has the weight of the world on his shoulders.” And, just in case you’re wondering, that’s all in one week. Yeah, life as a royal is pretty tough.

Checking out the trailer might lead you to draw some comparisons to Gossip Girl, but the show’s young stars want you to know that this show is much crazier than the hit CW series. “This show makes Gossip Girl look like a Disney movie,” Tom Austen (Jasper) told Wetpaint Entertainment. “They’ve got nothing on us.” Um, yes please.

With the hot dudes, bitchy girls, and potential drama of The Royals, you know we’re going to be tuning in!
