Will and Kate who?

Your new favorite Royals are here, they look delicious in this brand new trailer for E!'s first hour-long scripted series, which focuses on the lives of a fictional modern-day monarchy in England and stars Elizabeth Hurley as the Queen of England.  

The trailer not only shows off Hurley in all her majestic glory as Queen Helena, but it also previews a bit of the madness to come as we get to know the rest of her family, including her mother, the Grand Duchess of Oxford, played by none other than the fabulous Joan Collins, who appears in this trailer wearing a diamond choker, obviously.

The cast also includes Vincent Regan as King Simon, William Moseley as Prince Liam, Alexandra Park as Princess Eleanor, and Merritt Patterson as Ophelia, Liam's American lover.

The Royals

E! Entertainment

There seems to be drama all over the place as Helena clashes with Ophelia, Eleanor engages in some of the most un-princess-like activities you can imagine, the queen's mother comes for a visit, and someone seems intent on getting rid of the monarchy once and for all. There also seems to be a funeral, a bit of bed hopping, and lots and lots of sexy men, which is a thing we will never complain about.

Plus, The Royals comes to us from Mark Schwahn, who also happens to be the genius who gave us One Tree Hill. If you haven't already stopped reading this to watch the trailer above, what on earth are you doing?

The Royals premieres Sunday, March 15th at 10 p.m. on E!
