Get ready, royal enthusiast! There’s a new documentary on the horizon that’s set to provide a deep dive into Britain’s monarchy. “The Royals: A New Era” is about to pull back the royal curtain, offering expert insights into the minds of both current and future kings.
As the special’s promo intriguingly teases, “They reign over the monarchy, and while they reign, it pours.” This hour-long episode promises a compelling look at King Charles’ first year on the throne and delves into the ongoing police investigation surrounding Prince Andrew. But that’s not all; viewers can also expect a closer examination of Prince William’s role in royal leadership, and a detailed breakdown of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s departure from the royal family.
The timing of this special couldn’t be more intriguing, considering it arrives just a few months after Prince Harry’s recent visit to the U.K., where there were reportedly “no current plans for Prince Harry to see King Charles,” according to a source cited by ET.
Adding to the excitement surrounding “The Royals: A New Era” is the fact that it will air just a month before Netflix unveils the highly-anticipated final season of “The Crown.” This concluding installment is expected to provide a riveting conclusion to the long-standing saga of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign.
“After six seasons, seven years, and three casts, @TheCrownNetflix comes to an end later this year,” Netflix shared on social media. “We’ll be back with more soon, but here’s a hint at what’s to come in our final season.”
The tantalizing hint from Netflix was accompanied by a close-up shot of the service program for the royal wedding of “His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales and Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Cornwall.” This teaser has left fans of the series eager to see how the show will wrap up its portrayal of the modern monarchy.’
Mark your calendars, because “The Royals: A New Era” is set to air on Monday, October 23 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on the CW. This special promises to be an illuminating and thought-provoking exploration of the British monarchy and its ongoing evolution in a rapidly changing world.
