Previously, on the Royals...
What is he doing here?
- Who? - Beck!
You only came here because Liam asked you to.
I came 'cause I always want to see you.
You've caught me on a good day, bodyguard.
Are you familiar with the expression "at Her Majesty's pleasure"?
You realize I have trust issues? Yes?
I found that in the Queen's bed.
- Armed police! - Nobody move!
'I took a solemn oath to serve you all.
I do so today by formally calling for the abolishment of the monarchy.'
- There's no way out of this. - There's always a way.
Open the gate! The King is down!
- He'd been attacked. - Who could have done this?
I need you to be my alibi.
You are the acting King of England.
All this I promise to do.
So help me God.
These children are illegitimate.
Tell us it isn't true.
- To the next King of England. - Long live the Queen.
You're going on a little trip.
I did what you asked. I declared the Prince and Princess illegitimate.
I'm going to ask Parliament to place the Queen in power.
You'll be England's final monarch.
When you found me in that alley, what time was it?
I didn't find you in an alley. I found you in the park.
Sir, please remove your hands from Great Britain's King.
Still wearing black, I see. Well played.
Very clever of you
to keep up the appearance of mourning.
Have you considered the fact I may actually be mourning?
As if! It's been two months.
Took me about two weeks.
Mr. Moorefield would like an audience.
Tell him we'll speak soon.
For the moment, things are... fluid.
Has Piggy been good?
Well, then, you'll have to be punished, won't you?
Hello, Prime minister.
We need to talk.
For His Majesty's approval.
Smile, Princess. I believe it's part of our arrangement.
You know, the last King didn't actually have to buy their affection.
- Do I even want to know? - It's a swan.
Only the King is allowed to eat them.
But why in God's name would you want to eat a poor swan?
Because I can.
Have you seen this?
'Princess, your public celebrity seems to be at an all-time high.
Are you going to the Queen's garden party?
Who in their right mind would want to go to a thing like that?
- So, you're not going? - Absolutely not.
How about I throw my own party and you're all invited?
It'll be like the after-party, only at the same time.
What do you think?
Once again, it seems celebrity trumps monarchy,
as Princess Eleanor steals the show.'
The garden party's a disaster. We'll have to cancel.
She needs to be controlled. They both do.
You're the one that stripped them of their titles and chased them out.
People find them sympathetic.
Emphasis on "pathetic".
They are more popular than ever.
So, maybe we use their popularity.
Reinstate their titles.
Make it look like they work for us, not against us.
- And if they refuse? - Let's find out.
Pussycat, pussycat, where have you been?
As a favor to the Queen Consort, I've decided
to reinstate your titles and all the spoiled trappings forthwith.
All I ask for is a modicum of respect and decorum.
- Respect? - And an apology.
Go to hell. Let's go, Len.
I'm not sure I heard that.
I said that we're sorry.
And the ring?
See you at the polo match.
Hey, what was that?
If you can't say "I'm sorry", you could at least say "thank you".
- For what? - Getting us back in the game.
You think I want to be here? You think I want any of this?
No, I don't, but if we want answers, we need access.
You want to find out who killed Robert, yes? Who killed Dad??
You know I do.
Then we need to be in the palace and now we are.
You realized they robbed something.
Of course I do. But it doesn't matter, because they have it all wrong.
They don't get rid of us, Liam.
We get rid of them.
Ah, Mr. Moody. Still living it up on the people's money?
A software designer, isn't it? Gemma Kensington's fiance?
She created an app that removes naked selfies from the cloud.
I'll have to try it.
But wasn't Gemma Kensington's fiance meant to be young Liam,
as promised by you?
Let me give you some advice, before you send those dick pics, Winston.
Most women like a bit of power and money.
When Liam lost the crown, he lost the girl. Shit happens.
Can I quote you on that?
I thought I smelled the press.
Oh, come, now. I thought you were attracted to my power and money.
On some people it looks simply garish.
Especially disreputable media moguls like you, Mr. Crenshaw.
- Shall we do the dance? - Of course.
The Prince and Princess are back in the palace.
Some would say it's a PR move, to keep up appearances.
That is godly false.
So it won't be a happy family either.
My children lost their brother and the only father they've known.
I lost a husband and a son.
This is a period of transition and healing for us.
Is that what Princess Eleanor has been doing in the clubs? Healing?
Look, why don't you say what you have to say,
I'll deny it, and then we can all go back to the game?
Believe it or not, Your Majesty, I'm on your side.
If my papers printed what I'm told is the truth...
And what is that?
That your daughter is again spending her nights
rewriting the rules of decency,
whilst your son is on a one-man crusade,
