Liz Hurley’s royal connections
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.
