the newsletters are a good read. It is interesting and informative. Maybe you could include a royal profile each newsletter. For example, for one month, do a profile of Masako of japan and the next month someone else.

Also, have a profile of a different royal residence/ palace for each edition. Just background info or historical info on the residence

Thanks for the feedback Australian!

I would just like to say what a wonderful job you have done with the profile on Princess Lilian. I've been following the Swedish royals for about 20 years and you had found such an amount of pictures I'd never seen. This seems by the way to be an interesting forum. Keep up with the good work. :)

Thanks to all our team moderators for their hard work on the newsletters. I especially enjoyed the most recent one with the focus on Princess Margriet of the Netherlands. I found it wonderfully refreshing and informative. Thanks again for all of your time and dedication to the forums

Here's my slip of paper in the suggestion box:
For a future newsletter what about a profile on Princess Benedikte of Denmark, or one of the Liechtenstein princes?

Keep up the good work!

Thank you LauraA, I'm really glad you enjoyed it! Some of the pictures in the newsletter featuring Princess Lilian comes from her own book, released in 2000, so that could be the reason why you haven't seen them before. I had the book, so that way we got some very special pictures into the profile as well. Alexandria, administrator here on the forums, wrote the excellent text to her profile as well.

Thank you for all the excellent newsletter every month.. it's always good to see some retrospectives... and i really enjoy it!

i'm curious, however, about the Story of TRF... perhaps you can put on some of your newsletter : on how it began.. who starts it.. and the rest of the story... i remembered it used to be lestribunesroyales, or am i wrong?

Hi, as I recently discovered the newsletter and I enjoy it very much, I wondered when the december one is coming?

Another thing, rereading the (excellent) newsletter about princess Margriet I noticed a slip of the tongue. About her baptism the article says that Queen Wilhelmina came over from the Netherlands. The queen lived in London at that time, as the Netherlands was occupied by the Nazi's.

I love the newsletters you do and I think you do a superb job. Keep up the good work :)

Suturegeisha's photo memory was great.
Thanks for your hard work.

Thank you, lucien. We do try to remember as many birthdays as possible, but sometimes it gets a bit rushed - and then it is good to have someone to remind us.

I like the small summaries of what each royal does, but I think it would also help if a small picture from any event that has been taken place or a formal picture so for people who arent familiar with the royal. Because i think a few are familiar with names but not faces and vice-versa. not only that but it would also add some color/images to the newslatter in other words its not only articles.
Also, i think if a small section is included just for random pictures, could be a mix of the kids, funny pictures etc... im not expecting 10-20 pictures but 3-5 would be nice, therefore people who dont really have time to catch up on daily bases on royal events they could go through a few random pictures

I'd like to add my thanks to those who prepare these newletters.

crisiñaki 07-01-2007 04:12 AM

Thanks a lot for the newsletter, this month's been pretty interesting, I've never known Queen Sonja used to sail:rolleyes:

One small flaw: some of the picture links aren't working, it's better not to give a direct link to the image but to upload it at imageshack, photobucket or whatever

Once again, thanks a lot and i hope you can put the pics back on:flowers:

norwegianne 07-01-2007 04:20 AM

The picture-links should have been fixed now. Thanks for letting us know.

I'm glad you enjoyed the topic.
