Are you ready to go behind the exclusive gates to see what royalty is all about?
One Tree Hill creator Mark Schwahn is taking viewers Behind the Palace Gates of The Royals in part three of the four part behind-the-scenes video series around his newest show which is centered around a fictional modern-day British monarchy, starring Elizabeth Hurley as Queen Helena!
Mark also offers a tour of London's Blenheim Palace, where The Royals is filmed, which is even more grandiose than one could imagine and includes canons and Royal Guards!
"I think the cast feels really proud of the show when we come here," he says. "Its's so breathtaking and it really is a wondrous and enchanting place."
"It's quite a bizarre job every day," reveals William Moseley, who plays Prince Liam. "You wake up, you see Elizabeth Hurley in the makeup chair, you go to a set that's an entire estate room that's been built, it's almost hard not to feel like a member of the royal family."
"It's an amazing opportunity to get to come here and be in a different culture," adds Merritt Patterson, who plays Prince Liam's love interest, Ophelia. "A lot of times you work on location but the show's set is not necessarily where you're filming but it's been really great. Everyone's been really wonderful."
"This is one of the most vibrant cities," Mark points out. "One of the most captivating cities in the world and we try to channel that in the stories. London is definitely a character. It's a city that has so much history. Our family and our storylines on The Royals are very similiar to London itself. We really love it; we feel very privileged to be here."
