Don’t call this a warm welcome.
King Cyrus (Jake Maskall) isn’t exactly thrilled to learn his oldest nephew, Prince Robert (Max Brown), is alive and well in this sneak peek from Sunday’s all-new episode of The Royals, and he makes his feelings known with an icy greeting.
While “Robbie” affectionately embraces Queen Helena (Elizabeth Hurley) and Princess Eleanor (Alexandra Park), Cyrus stumbles upon the heartfelt family reunion as he’s searching for a drink. At first, he thinks it’s just another one of the queen’s schemes to win the upper hand.
“I have no idea what kind of s–t you’re up to now, but you’ve already won,” he tells Helena. “What could you possibly need with a Robert double?”
“Uncle Cyrus!” Robert exclaims.
Cyrus then takes a closer look, squinting through his bloodshot eyes.
“Maybe it is you,” he admits, before revealing, “But if so, I guess you’ve all got a lot to catch up on. To be clear, daddy’s dead!”
