* BritishRoyalFamily: An [[AlternateUniverse AU]] version, anyway (possibly [[UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfStuart the Stuarts]] -- there was at least ''a'' James II in the show's universe).

* ArmourPiercingQuestion: When the Prime Minister learns who will be interviewing the king live on the air, he thinks the royal PR team is mad: "You know she made [[MuammarGaddafi Gaddafi]] ''cry?''"
