In MARIAH'S WORLD, fans, viewers, and “lambs” alike go behind the curtain and into the life of multi-platinum singer and pop icon Mariah Carey. When Carey isn’t selling out world tours or taking diamond-filled, luxurious bubble baths, she’s shaking things up in her professional life, brining on Stella Bulochnikov as her tough new manager. Bulochnikov is determined to steer the ship and tighten things up, which leaves some of Carey’s large entourage on edge. In a group filled with strong personalities, conflicts arise, and tensions build, leaving the diva on pins and needles. Between being a mom, and working hard to give her lambs her best on stage every night, she is also trying to find time to plan a wedding. Beyond the flashing lights and adoring fans, MARIAH’S WORLD is a fantasy many wish was their reality. Then, in the Season 3 premiere of THE ROYALS, after the execution of King Simon’s murderer Ted Price, the former head of the family’s security, Queen Helena (Hurley) tries to prove that Prince Liam (William Mosely, The Chronicles of Narnia) and Princess Eleanor (Alexandra Park, HOME AND AWAY) are the children of King Simon, and the legitimate heirs to the throne. However, the current ruler, Simon’s brother King Cyrus (Jake Maskall, EASTENDERS), does everything in his power to ensure the Queen fails to prove their paternity. Meanwhile, Liam takes a dark turn trying to cope with Ted’s controversial execution, and Princess Eleanor tries to decide what to do about her relationship with her bodyguard Jasper (Tom Austen, UNFORGOTTEN). Prince Robert’s (Max Brown, THE TUDORS) mysterious death shattered his family and the nation, but after the Season 2 finale revealed he was still alive, Season 3 promises to answer questions surrounding his disappearance and potential return.
