Hello ohappylife

I'm not sure what you are asking and of whom - the Admins, the Moderators, the members?
We don't use Skype so you can put your questions here and whoever is best equipped to answer them will hopefully do so.

The site is getting very busy and the staff and the members are preoccupied with the imminent Royal Wedding - the former in last-minute planning and preparation, the latter in anticipation. However I'm sure everyone will do what they can to assist. :)

Calling Harry Fans!

I'm making a celebratory documentary about Prince Harry’s fans.

It will look at the public’s affectionate relationship with the third in line to the throne
and explore what it is about Harry that people find so endearing.

The documentary is being made by Rare Day for Channel Four’s critically acclaimed First Cut strand.

If you can help me with my research - with facts about Harry, or tips and advice, I'd love to hear from you!

With very best wishes,

ITV1 show "May The Best House Win"

"May The Best House Win"
ITV1 television show [UK]

My name is Rob Thoday and I'm an Assistant Producer working on the popular ITV1 show 'May The Best House Win'
link: May The Best House Win - ITV Lifestyle
The show is a massively successful programme that is very similar in format to Channel 4's 'Come Dine With Me'.

Instead of contestants going head to head in a battle of dinner parties our show sees each contestant viewing each others homes and giving it a mark out of ten.
At the end of the episode the person with the most points wins a £1000 prize.

We are currently in the process of developing a special Royal edition of the show and I am very keen to get in touch with anyone who may be interested in taking part.

I am looking for potential contestants residing in London, Surrey or the surrounding areas (although we are taking applications from further afield into consideration) that have a Royal connection or heritage that may enjoy taking part in a show such as ours.

The show is a great deal of fun for everyone taking part and gives contestants the chance to have a look around each others properties in the name of entertainment.

Dream of Queen Elizabeth II


I'm doing research for an art project which I would like to show during the celebration of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee so I would like to ask if you ever dreamt of Queen Elizabeth II and if yes, can you please tell me your dream?


Yes, yes, I did, and recently.

I work in a major hospital in the south. The queen came for a visit, and one of the doctors I know made a point to introduce me to Her Majesty. I went off to do something and saw the queen a little later on and tried to strike up a conversation with her about horses or corgi's, but in my dream the only time she would ever talk to someone was just after she had been introduced to them. So, she wouldn't chat with me since time had passed since we had been introduced.

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;

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.

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.

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!

Are You Distantly Related to the British Royals?

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.
