Last night, a slew of celebs and press (including OKMagazine.com!) attended the red carpet premiere of The Royals, E!'s very first scripted show inspired by England's Royal Family. But walking the carpet along with the cast was a different kind of royalty—Three of The Real Housewives of New York City, including nemesis Bethenny Frankel and Kelly Bensimon!

Bethenny was one of the first stars to walk the red carpet, wearing a purple velvet suit. She posed solo and with the Palace-inspired soldiers slash models hired by E! to look pretty on the carpet.

Bethenny's boyfriend, Michael Cerussi, was a no show, but perhaps he'll instead make his big debut closer to the premiere of RHONY on April 7th? Because that would be great.

Once Bethenny was already inside the party, former foe Kelly Bensimon arrived. The two have had a long history of feuding both on and off the show, with Kelly continuously accusing Bethenny of throwing her under the bus. Kelly isn't an official cast member for season 7, though we're sure the producers will call her in here and there to start up some drama.

Kelly also arrived without a date, but don't feel too bad for her—she got to pose with the woman of the hour, Elizabeth Hurley! Elizabeth plays the Queen of England on The Royals and was certainly the hottest commodity at the premiere.
And trailing along at the very end of the carpet was Countess LuAnn DeLesseps. PS: We took this picture of the Countess on the carpet! And here's some inside scoop—she and Bethenny were pretty chummy inside the premiere party, but Kelly was nowhere to be found! Are you Team Bethenny or Team Kelly? Do you hope Kelly makes an appearance on the new season? Tweet us @OKMagazine.
