Storyline

A speculative, fictional "what if" scenario based on the controversial play of the same name in which Prince Charles becomes King Charles III following the Queen's death. His scandal-prone family schemes against him, as his controversial political decisions cause constitutional crisis and lead to chaotic riots and army in the streets. Some of the most shocking moments in the story include power-hungry Kate planning to take Charles down, Harry's relationship with a black Republican girlfriend, Camilla slapping her stepson and the ghost of Charles' late wife Princess Diana appearing to her children to give them counsel.

Characters saying unrealistic things

I don't give a rating because I only lasted 3 minutes into it. After hearing Camilla explain to Kate that Charles is king immediately after the queen's death instead of at coronation, and that the UK doesn't have a constitution, I knew this was written so that characters say things to each other that they already know, for the sake of the audience. Bad writing at its worst.
