Saw a picture of Prince Ali taken during the late 90s/early 2000, and have been a follower of royalty ever since.

Well ever since we were small, our grandmother has been a very Royal person, who knew a lot about it and had video and everything....we wasn't really hooked by that time, but we've always been interested in the Royal families!

Then when CP Frederik and Mary got married in May, we were in Copenhagen outside the church and saw all the Royalties and so - and then we were totally hooked
We've gotten a big picture collection with Royalties and some other stuff too, and it keeps on growing

Well I suspect it started with the old copies of magazines at our cabin in the mountains. Lots of old pictures of royalty. Then my great-aunt had some royal books, I just had to read. Then there was the library's selection of them... well, basically I've been hooked since.

As far back as I can remember, I've always been interested, which I think I got from my mother. Just watching them on television and what can be found in newspapers and magazines.

I'm not a royalist at all but I like to study kings and queens. My interest was started a long time ago by Queen Victoria. I was interested that this very young woman was head of a very powerful country and that she had considerable power herself.

I've read almost every book written about Queen Victoria and still find her one of the most interesting people ever. She may have been poorly educated, but she was an intelligent woman and had the great fortune to marry Albert who more than anyone was the architect of the monarchy as it is today in Great Britain.

its hard to admire to meet Royals!

when i met Prince Charles i like him lots i shake him but mostly people who lived in England,Spain,Norway,Jordan,etc who are Royal families.

mostly people loved Princess Diana lots since she been enter Royal Family for 15 years till she died in 1997 because Diana was popular Princess because she is Queen's hearts and people's princess,children's princess but the PM Tony Blair called Diana as people's princess when Diana's died.

mostly people like Royals lots! you would like it!

Hmm, never seen this thread before. I actually got interested in royalty when I stumbled across this site. I'm a political science major, and at my other university we had to write a paper on different monarchies. When researching this, I came across this site and became intrigued. After my paper was finished, I came back to this site and started reading the different threads. From that moment on, I was hooked. I think I like everything about it. I am a huge gossip monger who reads People Magazine religiously, so I like that aspect of it. I also love the glitz and the glamour as well as the castles. I also like the human aspect of it. I used to think of princes and princesses as people who sat locked up in their castles, wearing their tiaras to the breakfast table and sat around bossing others around. I came to find out the exact opposite. In fact, some seem more down to earth than some people that I know.

I am not very interested in royality, but it started when my friend told me about this forum, and asked me to read about some topics, then I found it a good website to know the news of the jordanian royals especially the weddings while I was not in jordan, away from the events, a day after day i get interested in discussions. For some time I did not post, but finally I decided to post .

I am interested in the backgroung of the Royal families. Already in my teens, also a long time ago, I used to draw family trees of Royals. One of my ideas was to "collect" all royals on the branches of the family tree. When I read books of royals I wrote down the relationships between different persons and so my tree grow greater and greater.
About ten years ago I learned to know Internet and the first search I made was "royal genealog*", and I found this address: http://ftp.cac.psu.edu/~saw/royal/royalgen.html . After that I found other addresses to royals. I was exalted, but, alas, also my dream of a self made royal family tree was gone... But I got lots and lots of new information for my hobby. And later on I found new pictures of old days and by-gone royals. Now my royal family tree has a long time been quite untachted, but perhaps, once, when I have time, I'll continue with it. Perhaps, once again.

Oh, Gabriella! How I laughed, when I read your text about princesses wearing tiaras already at the breakfast.
You forgot the nighties and pyjamas with big glittering diamonds sewn on them ...

Well, to be quite honest I can't remember a time when I haven't been interested in the royals. It's always been a fascinating subject to me, and I've enjoyed reading about them, or watching them on television, very much.

Since Norway's been a monarchy since before Harald Fairhair united the country in the battle of Hafrsfjord, it's also a matter of history. I'm very interested in history, and more of the royal history than that of the peasants. I've been a large fan of Mary, queen of Scots, Elizabeth I, and various other royals from a long time ago.

The fascinating part about being a royal watcher today also comes from seeing the past unified with the present. And of course, the pretty dresses.

i only really became interested in royality when my sister told me about this site... its amazing how much info and knowledge we can get when everyone is sharing what they know... the royal i have always looked up to was Princess Diana, she was so special and had one of the biggest hearts, she really did care and was charming at the same time...:(
