A royal lesson on George Michael? Take a peek at BBC America's @AlmostRoyal

"Almost Royal" is BBC America's fish-out-of-water comedy that centers on two actors posing as bottom-rung royal siblings touring the U.S., with the Americans they encounter not in on the ruse.

Premiering Saturday at 10 p.m. ET/PT following the "Orphan Black" Season 2 finale, the comedy is one of a handful of series this summer that indulges in America's fascination with British aristocracy and social structure.

The first episode of "Almost Royal" sees Georgie and Poppy Carlton, played by Ed Gamble and Amy Hoggart, encountering Fabio during one of his grocery store appearances and getting an education on plastic surgery.

Then there is their introduction to a public restroom facility and the lost-on-them association to one of their own, George Michael. Watch the clip above.
