Eight Generations of Monarchs
Sometimes paparazzi’s behaviors towards Diana were beyond bearable. It was often seen that they were chasing her down the street, while she was running away on foot.
One time, even though Diana had ran into a cab, and buried her head between her…
I spent some time at the Greenbrier, and they have some royal photos on the walls. I took snapshots with my phone, so they aren’t great quality, but I thought you might be interested. There is only one that I think I have seen before. I put them on a flickr page. It isn’t a public page, but I think you can get there with the url. If not, let me know a working email and I can send you a link. http://www.flickr.com/photos/102914349@N08/ Enjoy!
Unfortunately I can’t see them! I think I have to be your friend on Flickr:
Please add me as a friend so I can see the photos! :)

Emperor Akihito, then Crown Prince, with Queen Elizabeth II, 1953
Oh my god, this was taken 60 years ago.
Check your local listings! It’s called “Edward and George, Two Brothers, One Throne” and I haven’t seen it.
Thanks to Marcia from TheRoyalFanzine for the tip!
Wallis writing to David, February 1937
Lot of shade getting thrown on poor Bertie. See, if I was making this kind of dig I would say call him instead of writing him because he’s too dumb to read, but Wallis’s comment is probably more insulting.
So, did you know there is an entire cult in the Pacific that worships prince Philip as a god? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_Philip_Movement
LTR: I heard of that a long time ago but had forgotten. It’s certainly something.
As you are ‘vintage royalty’ I thought you’d be an appropriate blog to submit this too. I love finding old newspaper articles about the royals. :) I don’t see a box to tag Prince Andrew, though.
LTR: Great find! “Strikingly handsome second son” that is vintage….
Day Seven: Post your all time favorite photo of your OTP together.
There are so many great photos of Wallis and David together. I’m happy that they’re one of the only royal couples of that era who were willing to show affection and emotion in public. This is my favorite photo because of how flirty Wallis looks. The way she’s looking at her husband is just adorable. David’s looking at the camera all smarmy too! I love both their outfits and general expressions here as well.
