My favorites are Edward IV and Richard III. I have always been fascinated. I had an excellent teacher in my summer schools in Cambridge, she was an EdwardIV-Richard III specialist, hence my interest.

And to come back to the present days, I like the Gloucesters very much. The present Duke and Duchess of course, but also the Ulsters.

Mine is of course is The Princess of Wales. If it wasn't for Diana I would never be interested in Royalty.

I absolutely share the same feeling. My interest in royalty began with Diana. She's my favorite British Royal of all times because of her devotion to so many charities and she's one of the first famous person to really talk about AIDS. She totally changed the people's look on royalty.

My favorite is princess Marina, duchess of Kent. She was a very royal lady, good looking, great jewellery, and very elegant. I think the royals could learn a lot from this lovely Lady.

I like pictures of her and her sister prinscess Olga of Yougoslavia.

This is a tough question because there are several British royals, past and present, that I am fond of (rather interested in.)

Nonetheless, I would place Edward, Duke of Windsor, (also once known as King Edward VIII for eleven months) on the top of my list.

He's such a complicated figure/man perhaps that is why he's on the top of my list. After a year and a half of researching his life (still finding new material) I still can't figure him out (his behavior, psyche, and so forth.)

Mine has to be Henry VIII. He has a very interesting history and his 2 daughters were such interesting queens!
My favourite British royal ever is HM Queen Elizabeth II.

I would have to say first it was Diana, Princess of Wales. I also never followed any Royals before that wedding! I will never forget getting up so early to watch it on TV. After Diana would have to be Queen Alexandra and Queen Elizabeth.

Queen Victoria, hands down! She did much for her country and lived through times of great change in the world.

I like Princess Margaret of Connaught :)

I also love Queen Victoria for her spunk, and for being such an admirable woman.

Which one? The current one which is Camilla? Or one of the numerous late princesses of Wales?
