We'll never be royals, but three new shows about British nobility should do the trick for American Anglophiles

If You Like Harry…
Fauxmance awaits on Fox’s I Wanna Marry ”Harry” (May 27, 8 p.m.), as an Englishman-cum-Prince Harry look-alike woos 12 American women who think he’s the regal deal. Ginger fail!

If You Like Kate…
Set your stately sights on E!’s The Royals (debuting in 2015), a “sweeping” drama about the sexy shenanigans of an imperial family. Oh, and Elizabeth Hurley plays the Queen. Bow down.

If You Like Beatrice & Eugenie…
Fascinators on! BBC America’s comedy Almost Royal (June 21, 10 p.m.) follows fictional aristocratic sibs Georgie and Poppy on their first U.S. tour. (Spoiler: Both countries will be embarrassed.)
