But there's more! A brand-new trailer for the series has been released, giving viewers an additional sneak peek at the upcoming excitement to come! Get a taste of the indulgence, the lavish parties, Princess Eleanor's wild ways, Prince Liam's love triangle, and so much more.

The Royals was created and directed by One Tree Hill creator Mark Schwahn, who wanted to provide viewers with exclusive access to the hidden world of royalty.

"I just thought it would be really interesting to take a look behind the curtain," Schwahn reveals. "Who are these people? What do they want? What will they do to get it? I thought it was really fascinating and a great idea for the foundation of a story."

Hurley is also excited for viewers to see the show and experience royalty in a way that they never have before.

"It's a very nice combination of what the public sees and what the public will never see," she adds. "And we had a lot of fun doing the latter bit."
