The Boy, George

The scene was set before we’d even entered, with a surly looking teenager sprawled across a red velvet armchair with the sounds of rain outside (well it is England).

George looking every bit the teenage prince you’d expect, clad in a lush pink robe with elaborate gold initials embroidered on both the chest and back.

With external narration from the BBC, it’s been six days since the death of Queen Elizabeth II and no one has heard from any of the royals.

The country is in turmoil, parliament is plotting, several members of the royal family have fled the country and it’s rumoured that the new King hasn’t left his room or spoken to anyone since his mother’s death.

Befitting his role as a broody, entitled teenager, George has a plan to not only solve the current crisis but save the monarchy (for our own good of course), and with just three steps in his plan what could go wrong?

Turning to his three role models (Elizabeth, Diana and his mother, Kate), he begins to put into motion the first step of his plan (with a little help from the audience of course).

In an evening that appeals to both monarchists and republicans alike, the performance was a constant struggle to work out whether you’re rooting for or against the Prince in his plan for the monarchy.

And you’re even left wondering if this kind of scenario isn’t so far off, are we actually going to find ourselves in this exact position in 10 years’ time?

And if that is the case, what can we expect from our young Prince?
