Royally Mad
Date: Sunday 30 December | Channel: BBC Entertainment | Time: 2.30pm

We all like to hear about the British Royal Family, but what happens if you’re totally nuts for them? Find out what happens when a group of ardent royal fans are sent to London on the trip of a lifetime to indulge in the royal wedding dream. Cat Deeley leads five of America’s most enthusiastic fans of the British royals on the ultimate road trip, visiting key locations from the lives of Prince William and Kate Middleton. The “passionate, opinionated participants” (read: bonkers) are all very different characters, according to the BBC, and all have one thing in common – an almost obsessive love of the British Royal Family. They include wedding planner Lori, a walking encyclopedia of royal trivia; blogger Holly, who has cats called Prince William and Prince Harry; and Allison from Chicago who wears a replica of Princess Diana’s engagement ring. After a trip around London’s secret royal sights, one of them will be crowned ‘Royally Mad’. We can’t wait.
