Well, nobody in my family knows I'm interested in royals...
The first royal I ever heard of was Diana, when she died. Maybe a year ago, I started reading Hola! and Hello! on the Internet and I ofund quite a few sites about royalty, mostly forums. I loved les Tribunes Royales, and earlier this month, I thought : it's quite interesting to talk about royals, give your opinion about this and that, etc..., so why wouldn't I register on TRF? So I did... I am really curious to know everything (some of you maybe know that...), especially the castles : how thw rooms are decorated, "placed", if you see what I mean.

So that's it, I am curious about the royals, their life, everithing!!

My interest is partially genetic- my grandmother was and mother still is a fan of the British Royal family. I grew up with their names and news a part of life- these people became almost familiar. I still remember postponing Christmas Dinner so we could watch the Queen's message!

I remember the day that interest in Royals became MY interest- May 8, 1986. That was the day I met Diana. She was gracious, kind, had an infectious giggle and came up to me in a long line of performers (following a music recital) to talk about what I had played and her own memories of piano lessons. We spoke for probably just a few minutes, but in that time she made me, a rather shy and awkward young woman, feel like I was SO important to her. I was absolutely charmed by her.

In the past 5 years, I have expanded my interest to all of the European royals because of the wonderful group of young women who have married into these families and brought much-needed breaths of fresh air. I am very interested in how these women are shaping the history and cultures of the world. As a social scientist, I'm fascinated by how these individuals have significant choices about how to handle their social power- and how many of them DO make meaningful contributions.

Selfishly.....what girl doesn't dream about being a princess? I'm also one who dreamed about those tiaras at breakfast and diamonds on my pyjamas! I'm not too afraid to admit I'm also interested in the fashion, jewells, glamour and society life that comes with being royal. And that Prince Charming to scoop me up and carry me into the sunset......!

Hi Clarita,


My interest started with Diana, Princess of Wales a very long time ago. Actually, I am a "closet" royal watcher. Not many people I know know about my interest in the royals.

Same here, it all started with Diana and, as Ennyllorac said, not too many people that I know is aware of this interest of mine for the Royalty, simply because they are, in the majority, only aware of the British Royal Family existence....

When I was 13, HM The Queen and HRH the Duke of
Edinburgh visited the U.S. and Canada (Oct 1957).

I saw her on TV and thought
she was the most beautiful and fascinating person I'd
ever seen.

My interest and admiration date from then.
I began saving newspaper and magazine clippings in
scrapbooks and buying books about them, a hobby I've
continued ever since.

Well, we've always liked Royalties and been interested in them and so, but it wasn't until the Crownprincely wedding here in denmark earlier this year that we got really interested And since then, for the last 6 months, we've been completely obsessed with them!

And yes, we do like Royalties more than normal celebrities - they're just much more interesting!
Our family don't have much to say about it, except from when we might get a bit too obsessed about it....but they let us buy magazines, go to see them and so!
Our friends thinks it's rather weird, but they don't have that much to say about it! Though it's sometimes nice that they know who to ask if they have a question about anything Royal - the class discussions about it always gets a bit more exciting when you know the facts are true

For me, I became interested in Royalty when Princess Diana died. I saw the Queen and her family standing outside the Palace watching Diana's casket and I was hooked. The mystique (?) of royalty has been my interest ever since. Not many people know about my interest and the few that do are very supportive. I have collected just about anything I can find on them. I have also started a book about them and that has me "on my toes" about what goes on in the wonderful world of royalty.

My interest in Royalty begun during the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana. I was so besotted by her beauty, youth and the grandeur of the wedding itself. I really thought, wow a real fairy tale. Since then, I realized I was so hooked with the British Royalty.

Wow! It's the same for me: I have been looking for pictures and informations about The Queen since 1999! (I bought my computer that year.) I don't like any celebrities but the Queen and her family. I simply adore her!
Now I have something like 2000 pictures of her or more (and the number is growing...)
My family don't understand me and think I'm a little mad.

Some differences: I can't remember when I "met" her for the first time, but I think it was about in the middle of '80s, when I was 4-6 years old, or even before that; I don't know where: perhaps I saw her on TV or in a magazine (I'm Italian: it's not so easy to see her here.) But I know that I liked her immediately. :)

(I've just sent you a message.)

I always go in the Internet to see her engagements too, and I try to find good pictures (that is sometimes difficult).

But now I really have to go to bed! Bye!

You are lucky to have had the internet to assist you since the beginning of your interest. When I started in 1957, there was no internet of course. Lol, I had about 40 years of collecting "offline" so to speak. Still, I have managed to fill about 25 thick scrapbooks with articles & pictures. In fact, I neglected scrapbooking for about 25 years (husband, kids, etc) so have all those years of clippings sitting in files & boxes. I'm determined to get more scrapbooks & get that up-to-date. I have no idea how many pictures that means I have. I've also built up a library of over 150 books about Her Majesty and her family. And 15 or so videos.

I became interested in the Royals in 1981 with the engagement of Charles and Diana. At that time I was working with a young woman who had transferred to our office from England. She thought the British royals a "rather dull lot" but indulged my interest in Diana and her clothes, and patiently explained the whole who's who of dukes and viscounts, etc. On the day of the wedding she "laid on" a wonderful tea for all of us in the office and we reviewed the wedding on video and I was hooked! My interest gradually spread to a general interest in British royalty and then the whole history of royalty. One of my sisters then lived in England for a period of time and she got me a subscription to Majesty. Through that I began to follow the travels of the British Royal Family and I became interested in the European royalty they sometimes visited. And now with the internet -- there is just a wealth of information, in addition to some exciting new additions to current royals, Alexandra of Denmark, Mathilde of Belgium and Letizia of Spain being three I am especially interested in. So that's how I got interested!

I always was interested in Palaces and Castles, because they seems like ... ok, don't laugh... Cinderella Story. And now I'm just an adolescent and I being interested in royal people with the "New Generation of Princes" I mean, Pierre Casiraghi, William and Henry of England, Imre of Austria and of course my favourite: Amedeo. Also this interest was extended to other royal people like Crown Princess Victoria or Louis Alphonse of Bourbon...
