For my work I already have to write more than enough about the covid-19/corona virus. Wherever I go online – Facebook, Twitter, newspapers – or on my tv all I hear is the name of the virus. I’ve started to hear about people I know online being in self isolation. For all I wish everybody not too fall ill and not to experience any deaths in these difficult times, but it is not something I hope to report about on this blog if I can avoid it.
So my question yesterday on Twitter was: How can we all – all us royalty watchers and bloggers – make online life a bit more bearable in the coming weeks/months? All ideas welcome!
What do you think? Thus far I got some nice answers:
- links to royal documentaries that you are fond of watching
- book recommendations
- stop clicking on negative stories about royals and stop responding to negative tweets
- previous unseen pictures
- not so known trivia
- weddings of the past
- stories about experiences seeing royals on tours, share memories
- posting group photos of royals with all identification
- watch period dramas
- remembering the great things many royals have done
- royal babies
- things that are funny, unbelievable or just plain wacky
- riddles: quote paragraphs out of royal biographies and let others find out who the person is
- share cute pet videos

Hi, Netty! Great ideas. – I especially like royal book recommendations, not so known trivia & royalty-related riddles.
A recent favorite tidbit I came across (with photo) was about Pss Margaret meeting film star Elizabeth Taylor at a gala film premiere, and commenting that Elizabeth’s Krup diamond ring was vulgar because of its size, to which Elizabeth let Margaret wear it for a moment and with satisfaction noted that it wasn’t vulgar anymore now that it was on her hand. It was a good chuckle for them both! (And all us readers too!)
