The Royals Season 1 Episode 9 Recap: In My Heart

by at .

Last night on The Royals Season 1 Episode 9, a startling revelation about Robert came to the surface, further shaking things up for the faux-yalty.

Meanwhile, both Prince Liam and Princess Eleanor were forced to battle their inner demons following a string of surprising recent events ...

Picking up where last week left off, The Royals Season 1 Episode 9 saw the DNA test results come back, and boy did they do so with a bang.

The royal twins are not actually, well, royal. Not at all.

Why would the Queen possibly allow this kind of scrutiny, at the expense of her own legacy and reputation? It's not clear, but she is all in now.

Allying with Cyrus can only mean she was backed into a corner with no other options, has a genius plan to turn this to her advantage, or both.

Probably a combination both. But only time shall tell ...

With both Liam and Eleanor pulled from the line of succession, Cyrus is now Regent. To the surprise of no one, he is loving every second of it.

His not-so-hot mess daughters? Even more thrilled.

Helena also revealed that Robert killed himself, a secret all who watch The Royals online have been wondering about since its inception.

Eleanor began to blame herself, as she was supposed to call him right before it happened, only to forget to do so after a night of epic partying.

This guilt and love Eleanor has for her late brother made Queen Helena see the light about her kids, and she pondered a change in alliances.

Is it too late, though? Has the damage been done?

As for Gemma, she still cares about Liam in spite of his changed status, while giving him space and also helping the Queen however she can.

Liam hasn’t contacted Ophelia or anyone else, for that matter. Whatever he's thinking about or planning to do next, he's not letting on entirely.

Finally, the man on the security footage approached Eleanor, telling her he killed Robert and implying that he was only a pawn in this game.

Who do you think he's working for?!
