Royal Magazines and TV-Programs

There are many magazines and TV-channels that sometimes report about the royals in the world. There are however just very few specialized magazines, not surprisingly they are almost all published in monarchies. But which specialized magazines are around?

We are involved […]

A Royal Crush

Last week I really started to feel old. Someone posted an article on Twitter with the title “Remember When Prince William Was a Superhot Teen Idol?” Yes, I do remember, but at the time I was already too old to actually have a crush on him, and I probably would have gone for his brother […]

It’s one of these Fridays again!

When you think that being a royalty journalist is always a relaxed profession, you are quite wrong. Today was one of these Fridays again, although luckily just for a short time. Somehow royal courts have decided some years ago that the late Friday afternoon is the best timing to send out an important press announcement. […]
