Hi, I'm Melissa and have been a history buff, especially British Royal History, since I was 10. Both my parents are huge history buffs and passed their fascination with royalty onto me. My Mom also has a passion for jewelry and must own at least 5 books on the British Crown Jewels and the extraordinary collection of the Windsors. I look forward to getting acquainted with other royal watchers and exploring the forum.
Oh, here's an interesting factoid. In 1938 my grandparents, while travelling through England, attended a garden party at Buckingham Palace and were introduced to King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. Cool, huh?
