The Royals had some real-life royalty on the latest episode. Dame Joan Collins finally made her highly-anticipated debut on the show. 

Creator Mark Schwahn explained that he had her in mind all along for this role, "There was a palpable excitement on the set. When Joan Collins rolls in everyone feels like we're making a legitament thing here." 

It created a new dynamic on the show, bringing out a more...timid side of the queen. "You get to see the queen who has been so powerful and so polished and then her mother shows up and she's like this 12-year-old girl," Mark added.
