Liz Hurley's surprise on-set lingerie snaps turn heads

Liz Hurley has wowed fans with a sizzling throwback snap of a very daring costume from a former role.

The 55-year-old took to Instagram today to reminisce about her time on The Royals sharing snaps taken on the set of the series.

In the photos, Liz poses in a sultry white lingerie set. In one she looks regal and serious, in character as Queen Helena.

In another she pulls a funny face, horsing around between takes.


“Silly memories of filming The Royals- it was a very happy four years,” she captioned the snaps, adding a hashtag ‘Queen Helens’ in reference to her character on the show.

The Royals was a drama that followed Liz’s character Helena, a fictional Queen consort in the British royal family, as she navigated life as a modern royal.

It ran for four seasons from 2015 until it was pulled in 2019 and was one of the latest series Liz has starred in.

The stunning snaps of the series brought plenty of fans out of the woodworks, many praising 55-year-old Liz’s incredible figure that was shown off by the delicate negligé.

“God save the Queen,” one fan wrote.

“Just getting better with age,” another wrote.

“Beautiful,” another wrote.

“The best Queen,” was one person’s rather traitorous comment.

It’s not the first time Liz has turned heads with her age-defying physique, and it turns out the good genes are all in the family.

Last week Liz wowed fans even more than usual when she uploaded a snap with her big sister Kate Curran who is two years her senior at 57.

Not that either woman looked a day over 30 as they posed up a storm in a matching pair of pink and blue bikinis from Elizabeth’s Elizabeth Hurley Beach bikini brand.

In the photo’s caption, Elizabeth described her sister as ‘glorious’.
