Hello

My name is Mary, I live in the North of England, I have been interested in Royalty since at the age of 4 years old, I waved to King George V1 and Queen Elizabeth as they passed through my home town.

Welcome, Mary!
It must have been quite an exiting experience to be so close to Their Majesties.

And we don't feel weirdos because of our hobby.
If I got a dollar for every time a friend has given me the look when I dare to speak of royalty, I'd be a millionaire!

On this site, it's hard to feel anything but normal, because everyone around you is in some shape or form interested in royalty. As for the 'look', I get that and an 'oh, here we go again' every time I mention anything royal-related. Before it irritated me, but now I find it quite amusing .

Welcome Mary Welcome!! I hope you have just as wonderful of a time here as I've been having!

Must be wonderful to have that memory of waving to King George and Queen Elizabeth! They were king and queen when I was born but King George passed on a month after so all I really remember is HM and the DoE's long years of dedication and service.

My hubby (King of the Remote) used to give me the look but I guess now that's he's gotten so used to me and my royal madness, any time he hears anything remotely (pun intended) royal, he makes sure he tells me about it. He's learning.

Thank you very much for your welcome. Although I was so young, I can still picture the King and Queen driving slowly passed.
