It was the end of an era for the Kardashians after 14 years and 20 seasons of drama.
Yet four upper-crust families in Britain are set to take over screens next week, as ITV follows their daily lives as they try to earn enough money to survive in a new three-part series called Keeping Up With The Aristocrats.
An exclusive teaser clip shows today’s Aristocrats fretting about how to pay for the upkeep of the grand houses that have become magnificent albatrosses around their necks.
‘I’m not your ordinary princess’: New ITV series Keeping Up With The Aristocrats follows four upper-crusts families in Britain – including Princess Olga Romanoff (pictured)
However, it also features the families having a good time with lavish parties, polo and plenty of booze. Princess Olga Romanoff, 71, who has a 13th century home in Kent, is among its stars.
She’s a bona fide member of the Russian aristocracy, whose great-uncle Tsar Nicholas II was murdered by the Bolsheviks in 1918.
Olga is also a cousin of the Queen, is related to Prince Philip and was once considered an eligible match for Prince Charles.
While Olga’s blood may be as blue as the Danube, she’s far more likely to be seen mucking out at her 13th-century home in Kent than quaffing champagne.

The House of Romanov
Princess Olga is a descendent of The House Of Romanov, which was the reigning imperial house of Russia from 1613 to 1917.
They achieved prominence after the Tsarina, Anastasia Romanova was married to the First Tsar of Russia, Ivan the Terrible.
Olga is the daughter of Prince Andrew Romanoff who was the eldest nephew of the murdered Tsar Nicholas II – the last emperor of Russia.
Tsar Nicholas II, his wife Tsarina Alexandra and their five children were massacred in 1918, bringing a brutal end to the royal dynasty in Russia.
The Romanov’s were first associated with Provender House in 1890 and her grandmother, Sylvia McDougall, bought it in 1912 for her mother.
Born in London, Olga moved to Provender House when she was just a week old and was home-schooled there, before moving between the city, Scotland and Kent
She settled permanently following the death of her mother in 2000.
