Almost Royal

Series Summary
Georgie and Poppy Carlton are descendants of the British royal family and heirs to Caunty Manor, a large country estate in Norfolk, England. The young British aristocrats are about to take their first trip to the United States, where they will interact with everyday Americans as they travel from coast to coast. They have agreed to have a camera crew follow them to document their tour, which has a couple of objectives for them. In addition to allowing them to spread their wings and experience a different culture, Georgie and Poppy hope to achieve specific personal goals. He wants to become more "manly" so he can take on the responsibilities of Caunty Manor and live up to his late father's legacy; she is looking to raise her profile while in America and fulfill her dream of finding fame as a pop star, actor, author, lifestyle guru or pretty much any profession -- as long as she becomes famous.

  • Imagine Borat's vibe with Summer Heights High's spirit--definitely worth a peek, if that's your cup of tea. [20 Jun 2014, p.60] show more

  • Gamble and Hoggart manage to strike just the right tone, sounding alternately wide-eyed and priggish, without coming across as mean-spirited--which is no small feat. show more

  • Most of the people [Ed Gamble and Amy Hoggart--who pose as Georgie and Poppy Carlton] encounter seem to believe they're being filmed with real British aristos on a travel-type show about the U.S. Their surprise--and polite attempts to hide it--at the things the visitors from England say is the funniest part of the show. show more
