Once again a royalty weekend is being organised in Ticehurst, England. The weekend will be held on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 April 2014 at Ticehurst and Flimwell Church of England Primary School in Ticehurst. If you love meeting other crazy royalty watchers and enjoy a weekend full of lectures and great catering, you’re more than welcome. For more information on whom to contact, just send me a mail or a message, as I just don’t want to place this information online. The closest railway station is Wadhurst, which can be reached by train from Tunbridge Wells (which can be reached from London). Best is to stay in the area, and if you don’t have a car, always something can be arranged.
This year’s speakers include:
Coryne Hall on They Were Not all Kings – Lesser Known Descendants of Christian IX
Ricardo Mateos Sainz de Medrano on The Infanta Eulalia of Spain
Margreeth Pop-Jansen on Portraits of Royal Children
Helen Rappaport on Four Sisters– the research behind her just released latest book on the daughters of Nicholas II followed by a signing session at Van Hoogstraten’s bookstall
Ian Shapiro on Royal Manuscripts and Letters from Elizabeth I
Katrina Warne on Residences of the Russian Imperial Family
John Wimbles on The Duchess of Edinburgh’s Farewell to England
Charlotte Zeepvat on Maurice of Battenberg
There will also be other royal authors present including Janet Ashton, Bobby Golden and Ilana Miller.
Booksellers van Hoogstraten of the Hague will be in attendance, and there will be a bring and buy Royal Ephemera sale.

£110 for those paying in sterling before Feb 28th 2014
