ROYALS GO OVERSEAS AND UNDERCOVER ON TLC'S "SECRET PRINCES"

Season Two of SECRET PRINCES premieres Friday, October 25th at 10/9c

[Los Angeles] - Four royal bachelors are leaving their kingdoms behind and traveling to America on a journey in search of true love on the second season of TLC's SECRET PRINCES. They are on a valiant mission to meet an American princess who will love them for who they are, and not for their wealth or titles. The eight-part series, premiering Friday, October 25th at 10/9c, follows these new, handsome nobles who leave their riches behind and go undercover in Austin, Texas.

"Despite their remarkable upbringing, these four princes are looking for the one thing all of their wealth can't provide; a chance at true love." says Amy Winter, EVP + GM, TLC "Watching them bond over the shared experience of letting their armor down leads to more than a journey to find love, but a journey to find themselves."

Ditching their servants, cooks, drivers and staff, they will take on minimum wage jobs, live in a modest home, and learn to dress, act, and date like average Americans. With limited means to woo their ladies-in-waiting, the men will have to rely on their charm and wit to find true love. Once their undercover reign comes to an end, the royals will reveal their true identities to their American sweethearts at a grand ball. The royals may face their first- ever-rejection after the ladies find out they've been lied to, or they may just find the fairytale ending they were searching for all along.

Meet the royals:

Prince Alexander of Russia - Direct descendent of the Romanoff dynasty; also known as Francis Mathew; 34 years old. He has had a successful career as a photographer and currently lives alone in Kent, England. He enjoys keeping fit, rock climbing and reading.

Prince Lorenzo de Medici of Italy - Heir to the famous Medici dynasty; 37 years old; both Polish and Italian royal bloodlines. His family has a selection of beautiful homes filled with priceless antiques and numerous staff. He spends his time working with several charities and his pursuing his political career. Lorenzo has a passion for cooking and never has any assistance in the kitchen.

Lord James Rennell of Rodd - 4th Baron Rennell, United Kingdom; 34 years old; inherited the title in 2006 from his uncle. He grew up in a prestigious area of London and currently is working for an event and festivals company. He enjoys playing tennis, squash, skiing and surfing.

Honourable Oliver Plunkett of Dunsany - Heir to the Barony of Dunsany; Republic of Ireland; 24 years old. He lives in the 900 year old Dunsany castle that is filled with priceless antiques and runs his own computer game company. Oliver enjoys socializing in gentleman's clubs, playing croquet and skiing.
