Character History

Season 1

Royal and May returned to Tree Hill for Dan's birthday which caused much distress to everyone involved. At dinner, Royal learned that Dan had faked his knee injury to get out of playing college basketball and May had helped Dan with the lie, leaving Royal disappointed. Royal was also revealed to have been secretly keeping up with the life of his eldest grandson, Lucas

 In Season 2, Royal and his wife May were mentioned when Whitey asked why they weren't present at the wedding of Keith and Jules. Keith responded that they had previously planned an African safari and Royal was looking forward to shooting some big game. He said that they offered to cancel, but jokingly added that Royal would have just been resentful the whole time and that they would plan to visit Keith and Jules in a month. This later proved to be untrue as the wedding did not go on.
