I actually became somewhat interested when I was a teenager, right before Princess Diana died. Many magazines showed William as a "hearthrob". I'm also a huge gossip monger, and read People religiously, and they did a great many articles on her - many of which I still have. When she died, I really became interested, but I didn't know about any families other than the British. I had mainly forgotten about it until my first year in college. I had to write a paper on remaining monarchies of the world. That is how I found this site, when TRF was Les Tribunes Royales. I became hooked! I'm pretty much a closet royal fan! No one knows about my hobby. My old roomate at my old college knew, but she's the only one.

for me: To know more how does this system still work in this modern time. I'm glad to know that still many royal has worked hard for their people and in representing their country, not just only be a symbol.

Diana was the reason....I was 10 years old when I saw her Wedding on TV...and it was like oh God, then I stared to collect all Diana's photos from the Magazine whcih Mama buys....at the same time Queen Noor of Jordan...daily the last 10 minutes from the news of Jordan were spared to cover Queen Noor activities....then came the wedding of Prince Faysel of Jordan....next Queen Rania.....

Still my favorite is Diana....she was a real princess....Now I'm too much interested in Assma Assad news...I like her.

I became interested in royalty when I had to do a serious of papers on governments in my government class. Part of my monarchy paper I had to list every country who still had reigning monarchs and those who were symbolic.

I was interested to see that many "dethroned" monarchies still had quite a bit of publicity and charm to them. While others were fading more and more with the years.

OMG i Swear ...I was just gonna say that,I mean the Cinderella Story,lol
since i was about 4 I loved Cinderella Story ,sleeping beauty and all those fairy-tales...but when i got older (a bit older) I was so much intrested in the things HLM King Hussien and Q. Noor used to do,we didn't know much about KH sons and daughters,I only remember my uncle was crazy about Haya,LOL! a couple of months before KH passed away,there was an article in some newspaper that had Hamzah's picture in... I didn't know who he was so I kept asking till I got the answer,but then when when KH passd away,I was amazed by Prince Hamzah,he amazed me in every way,everything about him was lovable,I just saw KH in him,and that I loved KH & QN I cudn't help but Love Hamzah.I was intrested in Ali and Hashem a lot especially after the Pan Arab games which took place back in 99' in Amman.

Sorry for the "too" much information:o

Personally I follow Royalty b/c I find them very interesting. I was also a European History Major in University so it goes along w/ my degree. Also reading about Royalty is what really got me interested in reading. Now I have tons of books on Royals.

I find them quite interesting! It's the "Aura of Majesty" that draws me! And when I realized that there were so many like us, who enjoy following royalty, that makes it even more pleasurable.

I will say this. You rather hear about royalty than hear about my life. It would put you to sleep

Oh please we all just want to get away from our lives. Royalty--even with its flaws--somehow seems more appealing to our ordinary existence, well atleast for me.
