Secret Princes is an American reality television series that premiered on TLC on September 21, 2012. [1] It chronicles the adventures of several members of international nobility as they leave their home countries to live, work and look for love in America. [2] In addition, to guarantee that they are loved for their true selves and not for their wealth or status, they go undercover as ordinary locals in Atlanta, Georgia during the first season and in Austin, Texas during the second season. Season 2 premiered on TLC on October 25, 2013. [3]

Production crews follow participants as they embark on a journey to achieve their fairytale romance while embracing American culture in the United States. During their pursuit of love, they are forced to leave their servants behind and learn to cook, clean and shop for themselves. They accomplish this by taking menial jobs such as busboys, waiters and dog groomers. Even more revealing is their struggle to adapt to the American working culture. They take these measures in order to fit in and find the perfect woman for each of them.

Each gentleman brings his chosen lady to the formal ball and later discloses his true identity, leaving the women surprised and overwhelmed. Upon reflection, the ladies accept the invitation to be a part of the men's regular lives, without being disappointed or angry about the men's decision to hide their aristocratic pedigrees. The women travel overseas to continue the relationships, but only two of the guys are ultimately successful in their endeavour.

After seeing Christy at the formal ball, Oliver regrets choosing Deena over her. To correct the situation, he makes a difficult decision and breaks up with Deena. Afterwards, Oliver goes to Christy to explain his actions, and she agrees to visit him in Ireland. The four gentlemen then say farewell to each other in Austin and return to their homelands, where they await the arrival of their chosen ladies, with mixed results.

Last year, one writer set out to investigate the secrets of Prince’s vault – the stash of songs that means we could yet be in for an ongoing celebration of his music

A month later, I go to Minneapolis. The lawyer has stopped returning my calls. When I get to Paisley Park, Prince’s studio, there’s a sign telling me the security fence could cause “injury or death”. It’s not looking good.

So why is this important? Why should the average “Raspberry Beret is cool” kind of listener care about Prince’s unreleased tunes? “Because he is the modern day Mozart,” says his former protege and muse Cat Glover. “We would just write, write, write and then put things to the side and fix them later. Some of his best stuff is in the vault.”

Susan Rogers, Prince’s former sound engineer, tells me the vault predates the superstar status Prince attained with the movie Purple Rain in 1984. “I started the vault!” she says. “I joined Prince in 1983 when he was preparing to do Purple Rain . I realised it would be smart for me to get his tapes together in one place. I was aware there were a lot of pieces missing. It became an obsession. I wanted us to have everything he’d ever recorded. I called up the studios he’d been using and said: ‘Have you got any Prince tapes’? This is his legacy. We need to protect these things. It’s an actual bank vault, with a thick door. It’s in the basement of Paisley Park. When I left in 87, it was nearly full. Row after row of everything we’d done. I can’t imagine what they’ve done since then.”

“Possibly. I know he would give tapes to friends and girlfriends. As time went on, it became clear he was more upset about the sale of bootlegs than fans hearing the music.”

Hunting for these bootlegs around the stalls at record fairs and markets used to be fun. It added to the notion that Prince’s music came from an inexhaustible purple fountain, perhaps from heaven itself. But then the internet happened. Filesharing took away the chase. Prince declared bootlegging to be theft and the vault stopped leaking.

Now the vault is closed, what will happen to the music that lives inside? Leeds recalls a conversation with Prince in the early 90s: “He said that one day he’d just burn everything.” The thought of such an act of destruction, in the minds of fans at least, may be too much to bear, but there is still cause to be optimistic about the future of the vault.

When the 57-year-old singer took the stage in Atlanta Apr. 14, he apologized to fans for canceling two concerts the week prior—unaware that the performance would ultimately be his last . "I was a little under the weather," Prince said. "But we're here now, and I'm going to take this time to thank each and every one of you for coming out and enjoying this time with us." Perhaps presciently, Prince also told the audience of about 200 fans, "Wait a few days before you waste any prayers."

As one concertgoer recalled to NBC News Friday, Prince also thanked his doctor multiple times on stage. "The doctor was standing on the stage next to him and he wanted everybody to give an applause for that. Then about five seconds later he said, 'Let's give another applause for him.' It was kind of weird because the doctor he didn't even put his hand up or anything; he just kind of stood there. So, it was a little awkward in that moment," Patricia Chavez said. "I didn't really realize it, didn't think anything, but maybe he was a little bit more sick than he gave off."

After the show, Prince's private plane made an emergency landing in Moline, Ill. His rep claimed that the "Purple Rain" singer was battling a prolonged case of the flu, but a source with direct knowledge of the events told NBC News that the jet was diverted because an "unresponsive male" needed immediate medical attention; Executive Jet Management had "no comment" regarding that particular flight, the passengers, or any flight that it operates. Airport police contacted the Moline Fire Department for EMS service Saturday, and Prince was rushed to the hospital. Just before noon, though, his plane was back in the air and en route to Minneapolis.

"There was some concern from those in his circle about his appearance and something changed with his energy," a source close to Prince tells E! News exclusively. "Prince was very energetic and lively, on stage and in general, but the past few months or year he hadn't been himself. He seemed off and his energy level was down." Another insider says some people feared "he was going to die" after the incident, so he hosted people at Paisley Park later that night to convince them he was OK. "He wanted to have the party so people knew he was still alive."

The public didn't question it further. But it became increasingly hard for Prince to hide his issues from his inner circle. According to one of his friends and collaborators, "A week or so ago he started not feeling well and expressed that to a few close friends. He never spoke about what the illness was, only that he was fighting a cold and he will get better and not to worry. He never liked to complain." Prince was recently supposed to go out to dinner with friends, but he canceled at the last minute. "He said he was still not feeling well and he needed to reschedule."

"He had not looked well for the last year," someone who's known Prince for 30 years tells E! News. "People were worried about him." According to another source, "He had a very bad hip and needed a hip replacement but wouldn't get it fixed." Because he was a Jehovah Witness and believed in bloodless treatments, the source said he "couldn't have a blood transfusion" needed during surgery. To cope with his discomfort, multiple sources confirm to E! News that Prince had been taking Percocet, a narcotic that can treat moderate to moderately severe pain.
