My royal reading list

I thought it was fun to make a list of royal or noble related books that I have read. I do not always have time or energy to read. Also lots of books I like are in English, and are more difficult to read when that’s not your main language. When I have been busy with royals all day I am not always in the mood to read more about them in the evening either.
