Still busy putting my royal collection in order. After temporarily having put postcards and royal mail in a few boxes, I decided to have another look at the huge pile of scrapbooks from the past 40 years. I also had several scrapbooks from the 1960s and 1970s, originally created by others. As I run out […]
You’ve got royal mail (3)
Since most of the Christmas answers arrived – unfortunately not the beloved yearly card from Monaco – it has become silent in my mailbox. However I’ve sent a few cards around May and today received a lovely reply. As usual posted from Buckingham Palace, still with stamp of Kensington Palace at the back of the […]
You’ve got royal mail (2)
Just got back home from a shopping tour in the city and finally found the reply of Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, and Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, in my mailbox. Over the months I have seen people slowly receiving the wedding card of Harry and Meghan. The card shows a wonderful black and […]
You’ve got royal mail (1)
The postman just brought lovely mail from the UK. I for once thought about it sending a card to congratulate Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank with their marriage on 12 October 2018.

My New Magazines and Postcards

My mother gave me these postcards recently, likely dating from the 1950s to the 1970s. The first black-white postcard shows the castles of King Ludwig II of Bavaria. The poststamps […]
Royal (Christmas) Mail
Once in a while, when I don’t forget I like to send postcards to royals who had his/her birthday, a baby, got married or lost a member of the family. But most of the time I just stick to a few Christmas cards. You don’t always get something back, but if you’re lucky you do. […]

Royal Wedding at Luxembourg: a Small Report
It was a long and interesting weekend in Luxembourg. As a royalty journalist I of course had to work, even when the hotel internet wasn’t always working. Not only do I have a slow laptop, hotel internet, as lots of you will know, isn’t exactly very quick in the normal hotels. In between I met […]
