So there's a show called The Royals, starring Elizabeth Hurley, about a fictional British royal family.

If you are British and you happen to watch this show, you will notice many problems.

1. At the start, why does Elizabeth Hurley say that she is the "Queen of England"? It's wrong. / Via

The REAL Queen is the Queen of the United Kingdom, which includes not only England but Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland too.

Have all these countries declared independence? It isn't explained.


2. She later holds this, but why on earth would you call a paper Tube Reader? And why does it cost 17p?


7. Why does the Queen's "Head of Security" live in a clock tower next to the palace where the royals live?

We've got a housing crisis but not that much of a housing crisis. I guess that you're always able to tell the time though, albeit backwards.

Anyway, the family then hears the news that Prince Robert (a guy we've never seen) has died and the family is very sad about him being dead and everything.


12. And then, why does the uncle think that shooting his brother, the King, will lead him to the throne?

Surely if he does kill the King then he'll go to jail? Not become THE KING?

Catch The Royals in the US on Sundays at 10pm on E!

The first episode debuts in the UK at 9 pm on Wednesday 25th March on E!
