This is the inside story of one of the world’s most bizarre and ballsy reality dating shows. In early 2013 a group of twelve unsuspecting American women were flown to a sumptuous Elizabethan estate in the heart of the Berkshire countryside, where they competed for a chance to win the affections of one of the world’s most eligible bachelors. “Oh my god,” shouts one of the contestants as their suitor arrives by helicopter, “That’s Prince Harry!”. The Bachelor Of Buckingham Palace tells the gripping, entertaining and unsettling story of how Fox duped a group of women into believing they were dating a man who was fifth in the line to the British throne.

Miss Bunny Watson ,

Bravo!

Just the fact that you made a podcast about this deserves a 5 star rating. When people ask me what my favorite reality dating show is/was, I always say “I Wanna Marry Harry.” It was such a bizarre concept, I loved it! Also, I was about the same age as the girls when this aired and I remember being so confused as to how they didn’t know what was going on because Prince Harry had been pretty popular in American magazines for years at that point (the first magazine I ever bought at age 13 had photos of him in it). That was part of the intrigue, wondering if they REALLY didn’t know or if they were faking. Ugh, so brilliant and yet strangely NO ONE seemed to have watched it. I’ve never met a single other person (other than my husband, who watched it with me) who saw it when it was on. So I love that you’re giving the weirdest dating show of all time the spotlight it deserves. 😂
