The buzz surrounding the British family has only grown since former Suits actress Meghan Markle married Prince Harry back in May.
It’s no secret that people across the world love our princes and princesses – not to mention the Queen .
It’s this love that draws crowds outside Buckingham Palace , Windsor Palace and of course Sandringham.
But as well as binge-watching shows such as The Crown , fans of the famous family have a new way to indulge themselves in all things royal.
A BAFTA-winning producer has launched an on-demand streaming service dedicated to the Royal Family in the UK and US.
And it’s being called " Netflix for royal programmes".
Called True Royalty TV , the service can be watched on television or online for a monthly cost of £4.99.
The channel will provide special programmes by the BBC and ITV allowing a look behind-the-scenes of royal life, as well as shows looking at history, archaeology, art and culture from a royal perspective.
There are also going to be unscripted shows like BBC Three’s Undercover Princess.
Nick Bullen, the mastermind behind the service, has produced many popular programmes about the British monarchy over the years, including The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration – for which he won a BAFTA.
For this particular project, he has teamed up with brand specialist Edward Mason and entrepreneur Gregor Angus to create True Royalty TV.
The channel currently offers around 150 hours of streaming content but is hoping to have 400 or 500 hours by the end of the year.
As well as content about the British Royal family, they are also looking to expand their offering to include shows about royals around the world.
Speaking about the idea, Nick Bullen told Variety : “Basically it’s Netflix for royal programs – it’s royalty on demand, from pharaohs to medieval kings to Meghan Markle, we take you across royal stories from across the world. I was thinking, wouldn’t it be great to have royal content at your fingertips whenever you wanted it?”
“Clearly at the moment the world is fascinated by the British royals. The skew and the focus is British royalty, although not just the immediate family. We found an amazing documentary about Edward and Mrs. Simpson’s lost photographs.”
He added: "And we also look at the [likes of] the Romanoffs and the Grimaldis."
