TLC had a cult hit on its hands when the network aired “Secret Princes,” a British-made docu-series that followed international royalty who moved to a small town in England. Now the network is bringing the reality series to America, as a new group of royals head to Atlanta to find love.
Lord Robert Walters and the Honourable Ludovic Watson of the U.K. join Prince Francisco of Spain and Prince Salauddin Babi of India as they take on aliases and crappy, low-paying jobs while they hunt for women who will love them for their personalities, not their titles.
Zap2it has an exclusive sneak peek at the superteaser for the five-episode series. Check it out below, along with bios of the four royals. It might be too early to play favorites, but if Lord Walters (or “Tate Morgan,” as he’s known to Georgia) approached us in a bar we would definitely take notice.
“Secret Princes” airs Fridays at 10 p.m. on TLC.
