Storyline

Liam goes on his first walkabout tour of English villages , with his mother, Gemma - whom the queen has chosen as her lady-in-waiting - and the resentful Cyrus. Initially Liam, standing on protocol, is awkward and makes mistakes but, having been told to be himself by Gemma, he starts to listen to people and is well-received. The queen on the other hand is confronted by a local distiller who rants at her and calls her a patronizing bitch. Eleanor is also touring - some of Robert's charities. High on 'E's she is consequently friendly and out-going and scores a success at a retirement home and an animal shelter whilst a visit to a drug rehabilitation unit hits home at her own situation. Ophelia spends a pleasant day with Nick which Liam notes and is consoled by Gemma whilst Cyrus and the queen continue plotting against the abdication, observing on the television news that a certain distillery has burned to the ground.

Goofs

After reading a headline about her daughter the Princess, Queen Helena says to Prince Cyrus "four minutes earlier and she'd been the next heir."

However, under law for succession to the British throne, all male offspring take precedence over female offspring in the order of succession, so even if he were born after his twin sister, Prince Liam would still be the heir to the throne, not Princess Eleanor.

The British law was changed just prior to the birth of the first Child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge allowing the eldest child, whether male or female to be the heir, however, the new law only effected the line of succession going forward and would not impact any prior born royals.
