The premiere, with a double episode, of an animation series in which royalty is taken to the suburbs. It all starts when a problem with the plumbing in the castle forces a royal family to move into a small normal house and adapt to the life of the common people.

There is not exactly snobbery running in their blue blood. In fact, they leave for their new life with enthusiasm (and a little naivety): Princess Stella yearns to be able to be a young woman like the others, the Queen sees the move as a chance to modernize and the King couldn’t be more eager to put in practice its motto, “closer to the people”. Naturally, the adventures of these illustrious new neighbors will not be long in coming. The series is shown on weekends.
