From Victoria and beyond? So you mean since Victoria? 

Queen Elizabeth II. 

If you mean before Victoria, Elizabeth I. 

Do you think Princess Grace of Monaco was happy in her marraige?

I wouldn’t speak for her, but generally in any marriage there are moments of happiness and some of unhappiness. 

I have heard there were a lot of problems with mistrust in Grace and Rainier’s marriage and I wouldn’t say it was anything to aspire to. But as with any royal marriage, the problems they faced have been extremely exaggerated by certain tabloid biographers. 

If you have more specific questions I would definitely ask Paige from PogglePoppy who is more of an expert on Princess Grace. 

:)

Are there any good Queen Mary biographies? Or just any? I tried looking around, but all that comes up are ones on Queen Mary of Scotland.

My personal favorite is Matriarch: Queen Mary and the House of Windsor by Anne Edwards. It has a few stupid errors here and there but is a pretty thorough account of her life and family.

You got one of those right! 

Is the answer to the triple blind item Will and Kate
Anonymous

They’re all different people. Should’ve made that clear! 

Three Blind Items For the Price of One!

1. Which royal bride called a former neighbor several dozen times during her engagement to detail her suspicions that her fiancé was being unfaithful? The calls would come at all hours, day or night! And sometimes our royal bride would be far from sober. This is someone she was once very close friends with, but had not seen for a long time when the calls started. 

All those calls never lead to an in-person meeting and the phone buddy was pretty pissed off when they never got an invite to the wedding. 

2. Sometimes celebrities build relationships with paparazzi. They arrange for staged “run-ins” when the celebrity has great hair and make-up and no other paparazzi are around. Their paparazzo pal will also assist in getting other photographers off their back and insuring positive coverage. It’s a mutually beneficial relationship: the star gets positive coverage usually right in-tune with their PR goals, and the paparazzo gets exclusive pics. Some royals have even gotten in on the game, though naturally such practices are frowned upon. Everyone has kinda figured out there’s a really close relationship between one photographer, his protégés, and a certain royal lady. And everyone has speculated about a dramatic falling out. What secrets might he reveal now that he’s no longer got anything to lose? Well, the answer is none because he actually knows very little, but he wants you (and his former royal associate!) to think he might have something worth revealing. I mean, technically no one knows for sure what the people surrounding this royal might have let slip to him at one point or another. But to be honest I don’t think there’s anything really shocking to know there. 

The story of what caused the falling-out is even more anti-climactic. 

They’d agree on a pre-arranged time and place for one of his protégés (he thinks himself better than a stalkerazzi these days) to photograph the royal lady out shopping, She didn’t show. No explanation, she just didn’t show. Next it was a family outing (to CHURCH of all places…), and once again, she didn’t show. Someone must have felt kinda stupid standing outside a random church an hour one cold morning. This happened three or four more times; he’d call begging and pleading, her people would give him a time and place, but she never showed. Eventually his number got blocked. 

Don’t worry, he’s a man with a plan. He’s been reading your Tumblrs and took his royal reporting in an exciting new direction! Stay tuned for more developments. 

3. Some advice to a certain royal gentleman: 

Don’t put all of your porn in a folder on your desktop called “porn.” That’s just not smart. Naturally when you get a virus (probably from all the porn you’ve been downloading) and have to call in a specialist they’re going to peek in there and see what kind of stuff you’re into. Of course if you could’ve survived without your laptop until you got home from your trip you’d have been able to utilize the services of the palace’s excellent tech support staff instead of calling in some random guy you found on Google. They’d have kept their mouths shut about your wide variety of fetishes. Or you could’ve labeled your porn folder “Sims 2 Custom Content” or “The Big Bang Theory Season 6” like every other guy with internet access. 

But ultimately you’re not someone who makes smart choices, as we’ve seen time and time again. This little tidbit really doesn’t mean much. Sure, rumors are spreading, but those screenshots could’ve come from anyone’s computer. And honestly I don’t think the tabloids would find this story very entertaining anyway. It’s just an amusing anecdote for the gossip columns and yet another reason for your ex’s prudish friends and family to thank their lucky stars y’all aren’t together anymore. 

Just be more careful next time!

Blind Item

Two trashy “biographers” (really, royal fanfic authors is a better way of describing them), one terrible royal documentary. Or at least, that’s what the less famous of these two leeches was going for. 

A lying, manipulative, creep who steals other people’s research wants to do a documentary on the subject of her new upcoming book. And she’d love the help of a certain obsessive, ass-kissing, dishonest and slightly more famous stalker-turned-correspondant who also may have a new book coming out in the next few months. Both of these nutjobs have been on the royal docu-drama rodeo more than once, but this time they actually want a theatrical release

See, the more famous of the two has decided that really she’s way too famous, and special, and important for TV anymore. She really thinks a royal documentary aimed at the festival circuit will class up her reputation. She’s already done a lot to improve her reputation and sees this as the logical next step. 

They’re in the fundraising stage now. The less famous author is desperate for this to happen whether it ends up in theaters or not, but she wants to raise the funds to put something really special together that can be picked up for distribution. Otherwise the other author is pulling out. 

But there’s a good chance they’ll get their way. After all, an extremely famous royal lady who isn’t big on interviews has promised them some never-before-seen footage that could be a game changer.

The British Royal family…a hard crew not to love…they come from a long line of colorful characters, riotous reigns, sparkling tiaras, and the occasional scandal.And who can forget the Windsor Male Pattern baldness! And we have so many wonderful blogs dedicated to British…

Omg I am so honored to win! I’d like to thank my mom, Sarah, and the royal House of Windsor! And of course all y’all true believers!!!!

Royal Blind Item

They’re NOT getting divorced. Who knows where that silly rumor started? And she’s not pregnant either. 

But something is up with this royal couple. They’ve been quiet lately, almost secretive, and neither one of them is working as much as they used to. 

The reason? A falling out with another couple from the same family. 

The tabloids have given up trying to explain odd behavior from the other couple because they’ve always been just plain strange
