When checking the statistics for the blog, I noticed that I had reached another milestone yesterday, 28 October 2021: One Million Visitors!!! That are just the visitors for this blog, as I know the original website had also a lot of visitors, but I lost track as I changed providers, software and statistics on the […]

A newsletter for NettyRoyal?
Recently I have been thinking about creating a newsletter for NettyRoyal. Oldfashioned, a friend of mine with computer knowledge commented. On the other hand one can subscribe to the newsletters of History of Royal Women and (since recently) The Court Jeweller. So there seems to be a market for it. Yesterday, with a bit of […]
The year 2020 of NettyRoyal
The year 2020 hasn’t been as good as we’d all hoped for. No big royal events, no big travels. There were however several births, christenings, engagements and weddings, and unfortunately also a few deaths. Most sensational things that happened in the past year must surely have been the exit of the Duke and Duchess of […]
The blog has been moved
Last night something I have prepared for for months has finally happened. My great host Rudy moved the blog to my first URL nettyroyal.nl. The people who usually only visited my blog will hardly notice. The old blog URL is still working and from there you will be directed to the new site without even […]
2020 has been an atypical year (as the Spanish media I follow keep on mentioning it). Royals have been working at home a lot, showed their offices, and outside often wore face masks, which looks awful on photos. We hardly had any nice royal events or big celebrations. National days were reduced or not celebrated […]
Someone told me she suddenly gets lots of emails with notifications of new posts on this blog. I am slowly moving my old website to this blog, and this late afternoon/evening had some time to copy stuff into new posts on the blog. As I posted them with a date in the past, I hoped […]
The winners! Palace Noordeinde contest
Unfortunately The Noordeinde Palace in The Hague won’t open its doors this year because of Covid-19. I have visited both the palace (2016) and the stables (2017) already. No visit in 2018 because of health problems, and a press visit in 2019. I had tickets for 2019, but couldn’t go because they closed the doors […]
In the very early hours of Thursday 2 July 2020 this blog reached another milestone. Since the start of the blog in September 2012 there have been 700.000 views. Of course in the first years I didn’t really do much with the blog, so it didn’t attract a lot of visitors. But more people visit […]
At home: what could you do?
Luckily I have work and as usual work at home, so my life hasn’t really changed thus far, apart from not having been able to really go out for more than two weeks now because of a cough. Of course I follow all news online, although – as I use Twitter for work – I […]
