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 […]

Season’s Greetings

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 […]

Email Updates

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 […]

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 […]

700.000 views!

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 […]

The top 10 of posts in 2019

2019 personally  has been a much better year for me than 2018. My health is slowly getting better, although I am not there yet. I have been able to travel again, visit places, meet friends and acquaintances. Concentrating on work is getting better, I have read books again. My cat Prince Harry slowly gets used […]
