Plot Synopsis

SUDDENLY ROYAL is a one-hour reality series that follows David 'Drew' Howe, as this blue-collar, All-American auto repair advisor takes his wife, Pam, and their 12-year-old daughter, Grace, to the British Isle of Man after he discovers he's heir to the throne. For the Howes, having noble lineage and even getting an invite to the Duke and Duchess's royal wedding is one thing, but convincing the locals they are the royal family will prove to be another story as the Isle's residents won't take kindly to an American trying to claim the throne. As David faces the trials and tribulations of winning over the people of Man, Pam and Grace embrace the adventure, but must also adjust to living there -- a far cry from the world in which they're familiar. After arriving on the Isle of Man, the trio begin to explore the land, get acquainted with the traditions, learn the local Manx language, and even hire an etiquette coach and royal advisor. From attempting to host royal garden parties and sipping tea with the highest social circles of the Isle, to participating in the World Tin Bath Championship and getting lost during an RV tour, this fish-out-of-water experience proves to be challenging, comical, and often times emotional.
On Wednesday, October 21, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT, TLC premiered the season finale of SUDDENLY ROYAL. In the season ender, "Home Is Where the Crown Is," the Howes' six weeks on the Isle are over, so Drew, Pam and Grace host a Royal Garden Party as a last chance to impress the locals and gauge support. It's the family's final test to claim the crown or leave the Isle of Man for good.
