Liz Hur­ley’s royal con­nec­tions

The TV Guide - - DIGITAL WATCH -

Look out for Liz Hur­ley’s teenage son Damian in The Roy­als, an unashamedly over-the-top drama about a con­tem­po­rary Bri­tish royal fam­ily.

In the show, which is in its fourth sea­son, the 16 year old has a mi­nor role as the ob­nox­ious Hansel von Liecht­en­stein, Crown Prince of Liecht­en­stein. Liz Hur­ley, 52, ad­mits she is glow­ingly proud of Damian and his turn in front of the camera.

Hur­ley plays the The Roy­als’ saucy Queen He­lena, a mother to three adult chil­dren in­clud­ing he­do­nis­tic twins Eleanor (Alexan­dra Park) and Liam (Wil­liam Mose­ley).

“Queen He­lena is an ex­ag­ger­ated ver­sion of me; she goes through life on full beam and never uses the brakes,” says Hur­ley. “I act in the same way as her, but of­ten dip my head­lights and ap­ply the brake fre­quently.”

The ac­tress and model, who is an am­bas­sador for the Prince of Wales’ Coun­try­side Trust, says she is a fan of the royal fam­ily. Hur­ley is sure to be just as ex­cited as the rest of us about Meghan and Harry’s big day this week.

“I was a teenager when Princess Diana mar­ried Prince Charles, and that was an amaz­ing land­mark in the his­tory of the royal fam­ily.” Streams on Neon.
