I can truly empathize with you on how oral surgery is just that. A surgery with all the trimmings and the pain afterwards. I hope the oral surgeon gave you some good drugs to help with the pain. Don't forget to keep rinsing the mouth with warm salt water if that's what the doctor ordered. It does help and saves troubles in the long run.

All I can say about the mementos is wOw!! Those are genuine pieces of royal history in their original state and a beautiful addition to a collection that means something to you. I'm reading King Edward VIII's biography at the moment and almost up to the point where he marries Wallis Simpson so it was really nice to see a photo of the original picture in the Daily Mail that you posted.

The Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh really were the golden couple of their time weren't they? Probably even more so than the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are now I'd wager.

Thanks much for posting these and hope you feel back to full swing soon.

At an out of town bookstore I have purchased The Grimaldis of Monaco by Anne Edwards. This copy was in excellent condition. It has a very detailed account of the reigning Princes of Monaco.

Charts/Maps of Royal Visits
3 Attachment(s)

I'm new to the forum and wanted to sign up to get some advice. I was recently at a carboot sale and came across the following charts/maps of previous royal visits. I was wondering if anyone would know their worth?
I have noticed they have officially been printed by the Hydrographic Office.

Any advice would be amazing

That sounds excellent, ash. There are many Charles and Diana memoribilia collectors still out there!

I've been collecting lapel pins from my travels abroad and, as I'm going to London next month, would really love to find one that represents the Order of the Garter.
I tried the Royal Collection site, but didn't find anythin similar... So I was wondering if you might suggest a shop that has similar items?

Ideally, I'd like to find something with either St. George and the dragon or The Queen's cypher encircled by a blue garter bearing the Order's motto.
ETA: A Garter star will do as well.

Any help would be appreciated!

PS: Windor is not on the list of places to visit.

The House of Orange Nassau
Hi, how are you? I am Dutch and of course the House of Orange is in my blood as a child, because my family are staunch fans of the Dutch royal family. On every birthday of the members of the family, the Dutch flag & Orange colored narrow flag are hang outside on a flag pole in every village, town or city and in schools, on every birthday the national anthem of the Netherlands is sang, so from childhood until now I have collected a lot of memorabilia of the house of Orange, more the 25 books, black & white & colored, hardbacks & paperbacks, box of 6 dvd's from 1898-2007 plus other dvd's of ex queen Beatrix, king Wllem Alexander & queen Maxima wedding & coronation & a scrapbooks of fantastic copied A4 printed photos,its like real photographs and peppermint tins with the late queen Juliana as a bride and queen Wilhelmina as a young queen.If interested tell me your side of being a fan of any royal family? I love to hear your story, keep in touch!
