Elizabeth Hurley: Americans are ‘enamoured’ with Britain’s royal family
Elizabeth Hurley thinks Americans are “enamoured” with the British royal family.
The 49-year-old beauty, who stars as Queen Helena in the new TV drama ‘The Royals’, says that like herself, Americans are big fans of Britain’s monarchy.
She said: “Americans, traditionally. are quite enamoured with our real royal family, they think they’re the bees knees. I do too as it happens.”
And the actress said this popularity has helped to make the TV show successful in the US.
She told the BBC: “I knew there’d be a lot of interest in the show and in fact they have responded very well to our scurrilous, fake royal family.
“I’m thrilled that they like it and I’m really hoping that English people will get in the spirit and enjoy it too and just imagine what it could be like behind the closed doors of the palace.”
Earlier this month, US president Barack Obama told Prince Charles that he was more popular in the US than American politicians.
He said: “I think it’s fair to say that the American people are quite fond of the royal family.”
Later, Obama added: “I think it’s fair to say that the American people are quite fond of the royal family.”
