Royal Commemoratives, Collectables and Memorabilia

I thought it would be nice to show of your royal collection here. I came up with the idea after reading the "royal videos" -thread.

I will post my collection later, as I have to make an Word-document first (Yes, it is big)

Top pieces of my collection, which I will never sell or get rid of: My Franklin Mint princess Diana wardrobe collection. I own two dolls and three outfits.


Post your collection and say on which things you are the most proud of to own and which you will never sell or get rid of.

The most important thing in my royal collection is a book.

it´s the official book about the Norwegian wedding.I have to say that my parents don´t share and support my royal passion and I was really surprised when my father gave it to me as a present for Christmas 2001.He ordered it from Noray and although I don´t understand a word it´s just gorgeous.

then I own something like a biography about Mette-Marit and her relationship with Haakon.It was edited from a German not very serious newspaper.But I think that it shows that Mette-Marit is really liked in Germany.Because although the Netherlands or Belgium or Denmark are neighbours of Germany there´s no book about them.

A lot of magazines about the weddings recently

then I have a lot if books aboutDiana and the British royal family because that is how my royal hoby started.

On a visit to England this year I bought Diana of Andrew Morton.

I´m afraid there are no books about mary and Maxima in German or English?

Gracious, let me think a moment! Mostly,I have a lot of books I've collected over the years. I have Diana's Boys, Monarch, Charles and Diana, The Queen's Jewels, A Day to Remember (C&D's wedding), and also The Royals. I also have several books on the Romanov dynasty. I've gotten several Spanish magazines from ebay lately, on the Spanish royal wedding. I have one big scrapbook containing clippings, etc, on the British, Spanish, Greek, and Danish royals. I guess the most valuable one I have (although maybe not specifically royalty-related) is a program book from the opening of Broadlands, the home of the Earl Mountbatten of Britain, when it was opened to the public in 1979 (or thereabouts). A friend of mine was lucky enough to be in UK at the time and brought it back for me.

I have some silver crowns minted for special royal occasions, such as the Queen's Golden wedding, Silver Jubilee, Golden Jubilee, the 100th birthday of Queen Mother, 50th Coronation Anniversary.

Some British stamps (for example two stamps for the Queen's 60th birthday).

Only two books: The Queen's Jewels and Jubilee: A Celebration of 50 Years of the Reign of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
They're wonderful books. Highly recommended.
Read my review of The Queen's Jewels on Amazon.co.uk: http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...677390-1175851. It's the first one.

I'm going to improve my royal collection very soon. Perhaps I'll buy others books.

several royalty calendars
Elizabeth II coronation creamer
Elizabeth II coronation cup
souvenir tray of Prince Charles' first wedding
Prince Harry christening mug

It's interesting to read what and how many things you have!
My collection is big for that I even start it last year but not really big in comparing with yours. I specially collect things about the Spanish Royal family.
I have many pictures on the computer and a file in my cabinet which is so full that I actually have to begin a new one. On top of that I have one book and a few videos.
Of the Norway Royal family I have also a few articels, specially about Ingrid Alexandra.
I'm proud of all of it and I'm looking forward to get always more things.

Wow! You are a true royal fan!
I would like to own such a collection.

Royalty calendars? I hadn't idea they exitsted.


But I'm proud to announce that I have improved my collection, since my last message.
In addition to the mentioned silver crowns (Queen's Golden wedding, Silver Jubilee, Golden Jubilee, the 100th birthday of Queen Mother, 50th Coronation Anniversary), two books (The Queen's Jewels and Jubilee) and some stamps,
I have now:
  • The Little Princesses, by Marion Crawford
The three most recent books by the Duke of Edinburgh:
  • Competition Carriage Driving
  • Driving and Judging Dressage
  • 30 Years On and Off the Box Seat (published in 2004)
(and I'm going to buy all the others).
  • Both the Coronation service and the wedding service on CDs.

Hello Monaco70s,

I seem to be gradually acquiring a collection of movies about royalty. At present they're on the TV stand! Storage is a big problem for me in an apartment. I'm interested in ideas as well.

Regards,
Attaining Grace

Royal Commeratives

Does anyone else collect Royal commeratives? I have collected for several years and have about 100 plates, mugs, cups and saucers etc issued for various royal events; coronations, jubilees etc. They range from Queen Victoria to Prince Charles. It would be good to compare notes with any other collectors out there.

Royal Princess Plate

Hi Royal Fourm Friends. I am new. My Aunt recently passed away and I found a commemorative Plate from the day Princess Diana Christened the Royal Princess cruise ship. Does anyone know anything about the value of this plate? Its a Royal Doulton, but I cannot find info anywhere on the web about it. Thank you for your help!

Shauna, nice to meet you. Unfortunately, I have looked on eBay for you and the highest priced item (for any kind of Diana souvenier plate--the one you have is not listed) is US$14.99. That price does not include shipping. Sorry. My mother has tried to sell all her Diana and Charles/Diana souveniers and she decided to keep them, as the prices are so low.

Bert and Carlotta: "Been collecting British royalties commemoratives for many years."

Wow, that is a stunning collection, I notice there is a license plate on display too...does that have royal significance?

So, I help out with my Dad in his medical office, and he noticed that I was reading a book and he wanted to know what I was reading. I was like, oh a book on Richard III. Now mind you every day, I am reading a new royal book...and he was wondering...how many I have?

I think I have over 150 books on royal bios, royal weddings, royal jewels, diaries, etc.

I have like several tubs of Royal magazines (Majesty and Royalty).

The one thing I haven't purchased are royal collectables. Kind of upset that I missed out on picking up a lot when I was in London years ago.
