Greetings to all from a not very serious, gregarious, larrican African Aussie. My interest in the royals started when I did some research whilst considering my response to the Referendum for a Republic in Australia. I joined "Royal Anecdotes" but that forum shut down some years ago. Since watching a news reel on the Kate Middleton hospital affair, my interest was sparked again...and here I am! I have already started and must say, you are a lovely group.
