I've never really counted how many I have. I know that ever since joining TRF I've bought quite a few and I'd wager a guess between 20-25. I think the prize of my collection though is the PoW's "Harmony". That book is not just a book...its a showpiece. Beautifully put together.

Another online site where you can get books dirt cheap is abesbooks.com. Usually the books I get there are $1 (USD) with maybe $2.75 shipping or they're $3.75 about with free shipping. Depends on the book.

I would say that I have about 30 - as I sell online, some of these are inventory. Among the more interesting that I have are:

King by Chance: A Biographical Novel King George I of Greece 1863-1913 by Nicholas Tantzos

and

Karoline Luise von Baden: ein Lebensbild aus der Zeit der Aufklärung by Jan Lauts (1st, 1980)

I also had two copies of Zita the Last Empress of Austria by Leo Hammerschmid, both of which I sold. I kind of regret not holding on to the second copy.

I have about 20 books, but I really have a list of like 20 books I really want to have, so after my birthday it will probably be a few more.
Most of my books are about Queen Máxima and the Dutch Royal Family, but I also have a book about Royal Weddings, CP Victoria of Sweden's Wedding and the Duchess of Cambridge, some books are in English, others in Swedish, other books in German but most of the books are in Dutch. I'm really desperately asking my parents to buy me 'The Queen Diamonds' for my birthday, I think it's a great book! And there is a new book about Queen Máxima's fashion coming up, it will be released on the 4th of April, so I really want to have that book as well. My bookshelf however is full, sadly enough...

Too many to count them!!
I think about 70 or 80: Spanish royals, Romanovs, Grace and Caroline of Monaco, Royals of India, Royals of Austria, Royals of France, Royals of Jordan, Royals of Belgium, etc...And lot of books about Royal Palaces.

I own about 30, mostly about the British Royal Family, both present and past and I have some of the Belgian Royal Family. I also collect any of the books about Royal Jewellery. I enjoy the chase and finding them in second book shops.

I've lost count on how many I have. I saw a meme the other day that describes me perfectly. "I told my husband all my books fit into a box. He told me I have to quit calling our home a box."

Too many Royal books and magazines to count..in both French and English...a few ordered online, collectors editions from as far back as 1960.

For example i ordered the Paris Match and Point de Vue original Dec 1960 editions that covered the wedding of Baudouin and Fabiola!
