A short-lived 2008 {{ITV}} series about the machine behind the British Crown. Originally conceived as a ''[[Series/TheWestWing West Wing]]''-esque program about "a woman operating within the shadow of power", what resulted instead was a tongue-in-cheek soap opera in the style of ''{{Dynasty}}'' centered around a spectacularly dysfunctional fictional royal family.

* HypocriticalHumour: Vinny and Ruby assemble a collection of hair, toenail clippings, etc. left behind by the royals and search the internet for a [[CollectorOfTheStrange weirdo willing to pay for it]]. Their plan works, as they find someone who offers two cigarette butts smoked by a member of the ManicStreetPreachers:

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

Added DiffLines:

** Some more explanation may be required. Royal Funerals, being logistical nightmares, are planned well in advance and these plans are reviewed regularly. Each is assigned a codename (the name of a bridge) for clarity and perhaps to avoid "tempting fate". Tay Bridge for example, was the codename for The Queen Mother's funeral.

* PropRecycling: Eleanor gleefully runs her hands through newspaper clippings disgracing Richard, but it's obvious that some of the clippings are identical -- a rare example of recycling props within a single shot.
