I was lucky to be born in a very monarchist family. My parents both always had Paris Match and Point de Vue around and from early on, I was interested. Nowadays, my children don´t think at all strange that I love royalty. They respect my taste and even enjoy seeing or hearing stuff about them.

I have been interested in royalty and the BRF in particular since I was a child. The advent of the Internet provided a way to interact globally with others of like mind. Most of my family, needless to say, wonder if all my dogs are barking but but I am generally considered harmless.

My collegues think I'm a whack job, but then I ask them what happened on 'Coronation Street' last night/week and they retreat muttering dire warnings.

I always tell a friend bits and she always says "And this is important because ...?" And the odd thing is, her late husband was also a royals fanatic.

I could never name a cat or a child Diana, people would assume it's my fascination with her that overwhelmed me. I had thought Spencer might fly under their radar, however!

So do I.

I'm totally in love about Mary and Frederik. My family simply don't understand it.

I never let anyone know.

Oh, Iowabelle that is TOO funny. I completely agree, certain names are off limits in some ways for us. Now, most people know of my interest in the jewels and various families, but inevitably when the topic comes up all anyone wants to discuss is Diana, Charles, and Camilla. They've formed these opinions with no background info, but front page splashes on the National Enquirer. It's really annoying. I was telling someone about how Sophie's wedding tiara was made from elements of Queen Victoria's regal circlet and they wanted to know who Sophie was. I explained that was Edward's wife and they weren't sure how Edward was! Can you imagine? I'm sure if I started discussing Maxima or Mary or Mathilde or Letizia or Mette-Marit they would have been completely lost.
I will say that about two years ago hubby and I thought we were going to become parents again--and I decided that we would call the child, if it was a girl that I had always liked the name Camilla, and my husband said no chance, that we weren't feeding my hobby to that extent. No matter, it ended up we weren't pregnant after all. But, goes to show, one must be careful.

It was in 1995, when I saw by pure chance the wedding of P. Helena and Jaime de Marichalar, that "I fell in love with Royalties". And up till now I am a passionate admirer. But, alas, nobody of my family, friends, acquaintances does share this interest with me, even not my hairdresser. They are looking with wide-open eyes and half-open mouth at me, as if I came from another star, if once in a while I dare begin a sentence with "what do you think of Prince.....................................................

Tilla,I know exactly that feeling,believe me.The funny thing about me is that I'm not the most patient person that would explain or talk about the reasons I like this or that.....So,believe it or not,I haven't told anyone yet that I joined this forum...and it's been about 6 months!!

Only my parents know that I have a blog. I could never let me sisters know or else they'll think I've lost my mind.

At work, I try to keep my fascination with royalty a secret, but I got so many nosy co-workers who peek at my computer. When they see that I am updating my blog or checking out here or any other website, they literally get disgusted.

The way I see it, its the same thing as being obsessed with Angeling Jolie, Jennifer Aniston and so on. Some people can't go a day without finding out the latest dirt on celebrities. I mean, royalty is my celebrity fascination, that's how I see it. Only, there's history and world events tied to it.

Sonjapearl,you expressed exactly my thoughts.That's the way I see them as well.But,I would never have the patience to explain it to someone.After all,I'm sure she/he wouldn't believe me and sooner or later she/he would start gossiping about me....first of all that suddenly I became a monarchist (I can even imagine the scene...)

Well, My family thinks that I'm totally nuts, jejejeje, but I don't care, I love this to have fun.

Although my mother knew some things about British and Spanish Royal Family, She watched C&D wedding, on the day Princes of Asturias got married my parents got up really early to watch it, because here in my country it was a big fuss about this event. But that't it.

They told me that I should do something more important with my free time.

I bet you'd get a letter from the DoC if you named the baby Camilla!!

It's funny, I had a dream the other night that I was meeting Sophie and the Pope ... and you're right, people didn't know who Sophie was. And for some reason I didn't want to meet the Pope (I guess I didn't think I was worthy).

I remember surprising my English class with my knowledge of the English Royals, inclduing my teacher! She apparently knew a bit about them too (well, her speciality is Brit Lit), and complimented me on it. The question was "What are the names of the Duke and Duchess of York's daughters?" which was easy and I quickly blurted out "Beatrice and Eugenie!" A few of my classmates asked how did I possibly know that, and I just replied "I'm a nerd..."

Then my teacher asked me, "Oh, wait, do you remember the name of the Duke of York? I always forget his name..." and I answered, "Prince Andrew!" Her reply to that was, "Oh yes...he was always such a cutie." Hehe.

Everytime I talk about any royal family to my family or friends, they doesn't want to hear me talking about them. Now, I am trying not to talk too much about the royals. I've always been a huge fan of royalty. Nobody I know are interested in royalty. I seem to be the only one in my family who is very interested in royalty.

I'm the first in my family, who is so interested in royalty and it gives me so much good mood and energy.
