Plot Synopsis

Four male members of international royalty live undercover as ordinary locals in the United States, as they embark on a quest to fulfill their fairy-tale romance while immersing themselves in American culture. Amidst this pursuit of love, they are forced to ditch their fleets of servants and learn to cook, clean and shop for themselves. While holding minimum-wage jobs as busboys, waiters and dog groomers, these royals struggle to adapt to the working American lifestyle. In the attempt to find the perfect lady they search bars, take line dancing lessons and even host their very first BBQ. After four weeks, their undercover reign concludes when the men reveal their regal heritage at a grandiose ball. These four secret princes descended on Atlanta, GA, in Season 1: Prince Francisco of Spain (aka 'Cisco'), a 33-year-old direct descendent of German and Spanish royalty in the Royal House of Borbon and Hardenberg, who had a privileged childhood surrounded by servants, living in castles and traveling/mingling with Sean Connery and Michael Jackson; Prince Salauddin Babi of India (aka 'Salad'), a 32-year-old member of the Balasinor Royal Family in Gujarat, India, who is unable to go out in India without an entourage; Lord Robert Walters (aka 'Tate'), the 29-year-old Lord of the Manor of Fullwood, United Kingdom, who is an underwear model and a member of a prestigious bloodline that can be traced back to King Henry VIII; and Honourable Ludovic Watson of Houghton Hall (aka 'Waldo'), a 23-year-old who attended the esteemed Oundle boarding school in the United Kingdom and has a home in London's plush West End.
In Season 2, these four members of royalty lived in Austin, TX: Italian Prince Lorenzo from the famous de' Medici Family, who appeared on the Ukranian version of SECRET PRINCES in 2012; Prince Alexander -- the son of Princess Olga Andreevna Romanoff, a Russian princess and descendant of the House of Romanov -- who was the bachelor in the Ukranian version of THE BACHELOR in 2012; The Honorable Oliver Plunkett of Ireland, who is the heir presumptive to the title of Baron of Dunsany, one of the oldest dignities in the Peerage of Ireland; and Lord Robert Jonathan Walters, who is returning for his second attempt to find love in this series. Season 2 premiered on Friday, October 25, 2013 at 10pm ET/PT on TLC with a 90-minute season opener.
