Keeping the family out of the limelight is in the hands of the Royals' entrusted security team. Liam’s hunger for a different life keeps his bodyguard and confidant Marcus (Roach) hard at work especially when he runs off with his best mate Ashok (Manpreet Bachu). Jasper (Austen) is Princess Eleanor’s new bodyguard who is delegated to protect her not only from harm outside the castle walls, but also from the unruly Princess herself. Jasper’s charming and demure nature juxtaposed against his brooding good-looks hint that there is something far more calculating going on behind his baby blue eyes. As head of the security for the Royals, Ted (Milburn) is committed to keeping his own personal life discrete, but when Prince Liam falls for his daughter Ophelia (Patterson) his private and professional life start to merge.
To make matters more complicated, Liam's socialite ex-girlfriend Gemma (Colquhoun) returns upon news of Prince Robert’s untimely death, and is relentless in her attempt to win Liam back from Ophelia. As the heiress of a diamond cartel, Gemma is refined, manipulative, and very clear about her desire to be on Liam’s arm when he is crowned King. Elsewhere in the palace, Cyrus (Maskall), brother of King Simon, is lurking for a chance to steal the throne by doing anything, in his limited power, to take down the heirs one-by-one. While his power is restricted, his lack of a moral compass is not, even when it comes to his sexuality, jealousy and enlisting his dimwitted daughters Maribel (Hatty Preston) and Penelope (Lydia Rose Bewley) to do his bidding. Although born into fame, money, and power, only one can be King.
All is fair in love and royalty.
