The Buckingham Secret Without giving too much away, The Buckingham Secret explores the Royal Family in an alternate universe where things are very different from reality as we know it. The Royal Family has a secret, and it’s one that threatens their status in society. When this secret rears its ugly head, the family must go to extreme lengths to preserve it! The Buckingham Secret is a laugh riot that plays on our fascination with royalty. Sure, they know how to put up a front before the public. But what really goes on behind closed doors is exactly like every other household, if not funnier!
