The Royals is about a fictional British royal family set in modern times, while Reign re-imagines the early years of Mary, Queen of Scots in 1500s France—and we can't get enough of both shows. They may be set centuries apart, but the resemblance is uncanny. Here are a few similarities we've spotted.

It’s one thing when an ordinary person says something in the heat of the moment, and another when it’s her royal highness who unleashes the fury.

It's a small world and the court can be even smaller so they need all the help they can get.
