E! is preparing an early Christmas present for fans of The Royals.

The Elizabeth Hurley-led drama will return for its third season in December, the network announced Wednesday. Additionally, Hurley’s son Damian is joining the cast as Prince Hansel von Liechtenstein, the actress revealed via Twitter.

Speaking of new blood in the palace, TVLine exclusively reported that British actor Jules Knight — a real-life friend of Prince William and Kate Middleton — will recur in Season 3 as Spencer Hoenigsberg, the new Lord Chamberlain to the Queen of England.

As we also reported, Genevieve Gaunt — who plays Liam’s new squeeze Wilhelmina (aka Willow) — has been promoted to series regular.
