I am an academic, working at King's College, London and I'm doing some research on Royal Events in London, in particular the 1953 Coronation and the recent Jubilees, and the experiences enjoyed by people watching these events on big screens in London.

I would like to talk to people who watched any or all of:

the Diamond Jubilee Pageant on the big screens either along the river route or in London Parks;

the Golden Jubilee concert on the big screens in the Mall;

the 1953 Coronation on the cinema screen in the Royal Festival Hall.

If you are able to help me with this, of have friends, family or colleagues who you think might, do please get in touch.
Thank you so much, I very much look forward to hearing from you.

> You can find more details about me, my work, and my contact details here: King's College London - Dr Ruth Adams

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like more information about my project. If you are willing to act as a respondent, I can promise you confidentiality, and anonymity if you wish, and that I will not take up much of your time.

Many thanks and all best wishes

To give you a clearer picture of my research project, here are the questions I would like to ask respondents...

Firstly, a few questions about yourself, please.

What is your age, and your occupation? Where do you live? (region/country)

Questions relating to the event and your experience of it:

Which Royal event(s) did you attend?

Why did you decide to attend in person, rather than watch it on the television?

From where did you view it?

Did you attend alone, or with family and friends?

Did you watch all, or just part of the event on the screens? If the latter, why was this?

Did you plan to watch the event on the screens, or was it more a question of comfort and necessity - i.e. issues of crowding or not being able to see the 'real life' action?

Did you feel you were missing out by watching the event on the screens rather than 'the real thing'?

What was the atmosphere like in the crowd?

Did people respond to the action on the screen? And if so, in what ways? Did their responses differ to those watching the real action?

Have you watched other live events on big screens in public places (sporting events, for example). If so, were there any notable differences between those and the Royal event you attended?

Any other information about your experience that you might like to add would also be most welcome.

English Radio in Germany (Oldenburg)

English Radio in Germany

I am the producer of a live radio programme broadcast in English in northern Germany
and would like to hear from a keen supporter of royalty in general.

You would be asked questions about royals in general, royal families in Europe
and, of-course, the British royal family.

We are not looking for experts - just ordinary people with a passion for royalty
and the ability to fight their corner.

Ideally you would be able to come to our studio in Oldenburg.
Since the chances of that are slim we would ask the next best thing: to join us via Skype.

Air date is Saturday 19th of January at 12.00 noon cet.

We are on FM in the area and on the internet (English Radio in Germany)

Could interested members please contact me:

Barrie Redfern

Thanks, Barrie.

Royalty Book

Hi guys,

I am currently in the (slow) process of writing a book on royalty called If You're a Princess, Where's Your Crown?

It's going to be a look at all of the royal families, as well as royal protocol, orders, tiaras, palaces, titles, succession, etc.

I'm in need of photos! I'm looking for photos of royalty that you have taken and would give me permission to use. I would prefer photos of all of the families except the British. We see them all of the time (at least in the Western media) so I'd like to limit them to just a few photos (I've got one of Elizabeth so far) and I'd prefer to focus on everyone else.

So if you've taken photos of the royals out on a visit/working or if you've seen them on the balcony or whatever, I'd really love to use the photos! I'd especially love if it you've got photos of someone curtseying/bowing to another royal.

Thank you guys!

From Maverick TV (London)

Maverick TV is looking for ardent fans of the Royal Family who have struggled to lose weight on a number of diets
and would like some help to kick start their weight loss journey.

Using research from Yale University, our series will look at using motivational techniques to aid someone's weight loss,
by working with a subject that is close to their heart.

Ideally, we're looking for someone who has a large collection of memorabilia that would be visual for TV
and can demonstrate a love for the UK Monarchy.

Successful applicants will have a history of trying numerous diets, not be dieting currently
and be willing to take part in a head to head weight loss challenge.

Please email for more information,
including your name, daytime telephone number
and some details about why you love the Royal Family.

From a show on 'France 2' television

This show is looking for passionate fans of the British Royal Family who could share their experiences or memories of major royal events

Here is the message that was received...

I am a French journalist working for a popular TV show on the channel "France 2", in France.
We are currently working on a program about the British Royal Family.

I am trying to get testimonies from real fans who can talk about their passion and who have memories of major events for the Royal Family, for example the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, the wedding of the Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981, the death and funeral of Diana in 1997, etc.

Is there anyone who is interested in sharing their experiences and memories of some of these major royal events, and perhaps be interviewed?
It would be really great to exchange information with you!

Please do not hesitate to contact me on my email

Thank you very much in advance for your help!

Julie Le Minor

Looking for a British royal memorabilia collector for magazine supplement


I am a journalist at the Observer magazine. We're looking for someone who lives in the UK and has a collection of royal memorabilia - some nice plates, mugs, souvenirs, etc - to take part in a magazine feature.

It's for a regular slot in the magazine called 'What Does This Say About Me?' which appears both in print and online: What does this say about me? | Life and style | The Guardian

It doesn't have to be a huge collection, we're not looking for people who have dedicated their lives to finding royal memorabilia, just an interesting assortment that would look good on camera.

We're hoping to speak to someone as soon as possible!

If you are interested in taking part please send an email with a photo of your memorabilia (a phone snap is fine) to

Many thanks,

Are You Distantly Related to the British Royals?


I'm a TV producer in the UK and I'm looking into a story about individuals who have discovered a family tree link with the British Royal family. Either modern members, or from back in history.

Has anyone here got Royal ancestry?

If so, I'd love to hear more...

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Wedding Footage

Finestripe Productions in the UK is making a very special one-off film for ITV to celebrate the wedding day of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, ahead of their 10th wedding anniversary in April.

The film will look back at that amazing day and talk to some of the people directly involved in the event itself.

We would also love to include some home movie/phone footage from people who were in the watching crowds and perhaps captured something special or unusual.

Were you there? Do you have some footage from the day you would like to share?

Please email me at

Thank you.

Is this project still active?

I am also an American with a family tree that is not typical for us. I currently have over 1200 Monarchs, Consorts and Regents tagged on my ancestry tree, many of whom I descend from repeatedly. The last one right now is James IV of Scotland. I descend from 3 of his children. Before him, I would share thousands of common ancestors with your Queen. I also share common ancestors with most of the other European monarchs.

My tree is only my ancestors. I know I have common ancestors with the Queen Mother and there is indication of the Spencer’s, too. They would not be too much closer, but maybe a bit.

One of my ancestors was James I/VI second tutor. Another was one of his favorites with hints that James was infatuated with the Duke. That is the last time that I have documentation of my ancestors around a king. It is possible there are some who knew the monarchs or royal family in the 1700’s.

I would like to see your program, if you produce one.
