People Magazine Special and Book about the Royals
 
The People Magazine special is titled: The Royals: Their Lives, Loves and Secrets
Its about 140 pages & its filled with pictures. They touch on Royal Weddings (& they actually talk about World Royalty in this area), Royal Palaces, Royal Jewels, Scandals & people, etc. I've just skimmed through it, but they touch heavily on the Brits & the Grimaldi's.
The price here in the US is $10.99 & Canada it's $15.99.
I'm unsure if you can get it in other parts of the world- I'm guessing if you go to a International Magazine Store you might be able to find it...or if you can normally buy People somewhere they might have this special.

How long has this magazine been on sale? Thanks for the info!

Lady Jennifer 09-10-2006 06:54 PM

I think at least a week. I saw a promo for it in the People that had Jessica Simpson on the cover & then I saw another promo for it in this weeks issue- with Steve Irwin on the cover.
I didn't have any luck finding it at my local grocery store, but I found it at a Barnes & Noble near my house...then I ended up going into a different grocery store & I found it there (go figure)

OOOOO, my friend bought that People magazine because it featured Steve Irwin. I'm going to take a look at it...Thanks for the headsup, Jen!

Yes, it mostly features the Windsors and Grimaldis but there are two pages on Queen Rania of Jordan and two of Prince Felipe and Letizia of Spain.

HRH Kerry 09-10-2006 10:01 PM

OMG! I just noticed that the Vaduz Castle in Liechtenstein is on page 100.

I wish that I could share these wonderful pages of jewels, castles, etc with you all but I'm just not that computer savvy to upload these pictures through image hosting (?).

I saw that too. They also included a palace in the Netherlands, Tonga & Brunei- just to name a few. It was great to see some of these palaces.

It isn't part of one of their regular issues, it's a stand-alone edition on royalty.

Queen Beatrix hasn't changed much.

Some of the pictures are truly breath taking. Even though People Mag really concentrated on the Windsors and Grimaldis, maybe there are more publications to come. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I'm guessing it's concentrated on the Windsors because Americans usually recognize the BRF the best. Grace Kelly also made the Princely Family of Monaco pretty famous over here in the States. I doubt more royal publications of PEOPLE would come out featuring more on other royals because it probably wouldn't sell as well.

Sad but true. I will keep my fingers crossed though.:smile:

I have to say...
I would have bought it, if it would concentrate on several royal families. But this way, it just wasn´t interesting enough for me. Sad.

There was some interesting (albiet small) aricles on more "exotic" royalty, if you will

i.e. Jordanian Royals, Japanese, several African roayalties...

Lady Jennifer 09-23-2006 07:51 PM

I really liked how they talked about & showed pictures of the royal residences (not just the UK). Lovely pictures of the jewels as well.

boston01 09-23-2006 07:53 PM

I was a little disappointed that there wasn't much information on Queen Beatrix or Queen Margarthe.....I know that theres only a handful of Americans who know about them, but still.

Zonk 09-23-2006 07:58 PM

I bought It
 
I purchase it..and was really disappointed. I should have spent more time perusing it in the check out line :ermm: .

Honestly, you learn more about the royals (and not just the Windsor and Grimaldi's) thru this Forum and magainzes that cater to them than via that special. When will I learn.:neutral:

tenngirl 09-23-2006 11:24 PM

I'm with you Zonk. What a waste of money!

I think it was a wasted opportunity too. There have been weddings, babies, etc. and the magazine did not cover any except for Felipe and Letizia. They could have shown some of the fashion, they could have spotlighted the weddings, the scandals of the Princesses but nothing. I have to admit that the British do not fascinate me anymore. I am just not so thrilled with William and Harry.

I saw no pictures of Maxima, one picture of Mary, one of Mette Marit and NOTHING of Matilde either.

They did show Masako's wedding, which was nice but how about today events?

when did this edition come out?

RubyPrincess168 09-24-2006 02:32 AM

I was also disappointed in this issues. I should have spent some time thumbing through it instead of buying it on impulse and in a rush! While it was nice, and had a couple interesting things, there was so much that was missing. I get more from reading Royalty and Majesty magazines every month at the bookstore than this publcation.
