Almost Royal    7 × 30"   
tx    10pm    Saturday 21 June 2014    BBC America   

Georgie (Ed Gamble) and Poppy Carlton (Amy Hoggart) are heirs to Caunty Manor, a large country estate in Norfolk, England, where they have enjoyed privileged lives as distant descendants of the British Royal Family. They have agreed to have a camera crew follow them on an unofficial Almost Royal tour of the greatest country on earth - the United States of America.

 

While also commemorating their late father, Lord Carlton, the road trip will provide the sheltered siblings with an opportunity to spread their wings and see the world. Georgie and Poppy have never worked a day in their lives, driven themselves anywhere or solved any problem more complex than telling their butler to tell their cook what they want for lunch.

 

Georgie Carlton is the most affable man one could meet. He's using the trip around America as a way to become more "manly" in order to take on the responsibilities of Caunty Manor and live up to his father's legacy.

 

Poppy Carlton is looking forward to raising her profile on the trip around America. She has high hopes of finding fame as a pop star / actor / author / lifestyle guru / cookery presenter. Poppy has all of the self-delusion required to find fame without having a scrap of talent.
