This Week on The Palace

The Palace King Richard and bitch sister Eleanor scene from the palace

Last night’s episode of The Palace blew my mind. Princess Isabella (Izzy) decides to renounce her HRH (her royal highness) status at her well attended (and Web-cammed!) 18th birthday party. The speech, which is pretty damning for the Royal Family, is put online, and the British tabloids seize on the moment to make a real PR nightmare for her older brother, King Richard. What does a 24-year-old king do? Especially when he himself harbors doubts about the legitimacy of his throne. And speaking of legitimacy, there’s a sub-plot brewing about whether Richard is actually the bastard child of his mother’s secret lover, not his recently deceased father, the former King James. Meanwhile, Richard’s handler, Abi, continues to walk a tightrope – trying to keep it secret from King Richard, whom she now loves (and he loves her!) that she’d made a deal to write an expose on the Royal Family. The King’s older sister, Eleanor, now knows about the book and is blackmailing Abi, threatening to tell Richard unless Abi agrees to be her mole and report all of the king’s actions back to her. That bitch. I can’t believe we won’t be here for next week’s episode. Somebody please buy me this season on DVD for my birthday.
