The Royal Ascot 2019

Every summer, members of the British royal family attend the famous Royal Ascot, which is a horse race. This year, some of the members of the royal family that went included the Queen, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Princess Anne, and Zara Tindall. Also, King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands were in attendance. Notably absent were the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who were most likely at home with their a little more than a month old son Archie.

In terms of style, the Queen opted for her usual monochromatic look with a blue coat and hat. The Duchess of Cambridge also donned a pleated pale blue dress and fascinator of the same shade to match. Princess Beatrice also wore an all pale blue attire with a wide brimmed blue hat with pink, blue, and yellow tassels. Zara Tindall also joined in the blue fascinator trend, pairing her fascinator with a black dress with a large flowered pattern. Princess Eugenie kept herself within the blue re…

Happy Double Royal Birthdays!

Today is a very special day because it is both Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh's birthday and it is Princess Madeleine of Sweden's birthday as well. Prince Philip is celebrating his 98th birthday, and Princess Madeleine is celebrating her 37th birthday.

Prince Philip will be celebrating his birthday out of the spotlight, as he has retired from his royal duties. Princess Madeleine lives in Florida, and celebrated her anniversary to husband Christopher O'Neill on the 8th of June.

I personally hope that these two royals have very special and enjoyable birthdays.

And the Name is....

We finally know the name of the newest member of the British Royal Family. It is....


Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor!

The name was announced after The Queen had met him. But, apparently Harry, Meghan, and Archie ran into Prince Philip while walking to see The Queen.

What do you think of the baby name?

It's A Boy!!!!

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has given birth to a baby boy! According to the Royal Family's Twitter, the baby weighs seven pounds and three ounces. Prince Harry has announced that they will share the name as a family in two days time.

I am personally delighted with the news and will keep you posted.

Happy Birthday Queen Elizabeth!

Today is Queen Elizabeth's 93rd birthday. She is already the longest reigning monarch of Britain, and has been married to Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh for over 70 years.

Queen Elizabeth was born in London on this day 93 years ago, to the then Duke and Duchess of York Albert and Elizabeth. When her uncle abdicated the throne and her father became King George VI, she became the heir to the throne. She married Prince Philip in 1947, and they have four children, Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Edward. She also has eight grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. Queen Elizabeth has had a lifelong love of horses and corgis as well as having created dorgis, which are corgi dachshund mix.

I personally hope that Queen Elizabeth has a wonderful birthday that she gets to celebrate how she wishes.

Meghan Markle Could Give Birth Any Day

The Duchess of Sussex could give birth to the newest member of the British Royal Family any day now. While we don't know many details about the baby, we do know that the baby will reside at Frogmore House at Windsor Castle. My predictions for the name of this baby is that it will be a classic name with a modern/popular nickname. For example the name Alexandra, which could be shortened to Alex or Alexa. Or the name Leopold, which could be shortened to Leo. Anyway, we will find out when the baby is born! I will keep you updated as soon as I know.

Royal Travels: Costuming The Crown

I recently went to the exhibit Costuming The Crown, at Winterthur, the estate of the du Pont family in Delaware, United States. While Delaware may seem like an unlikely place for royal happenings, it currently houses an exhibit with approximately 40 costumes and props from the award winning Netflix television show, The Crown.

Yes, you read that correctly. You can currently view costumes and props from The Crown at the Winterthur Museum in Delaware. Some of the most impressive and iconic costumes on display are...

1. Queen Elizabeth's Coronation Gown



















2. Prince Philip's Uniform



















3. Queen Mary of Teck's Dress



















4. Queen Elizabeth's Black Coat (When she gets off the plane in season 1, episode 2)



















5. Queen Elizabeth's Wedding Dress



















6. Princess Margaret's Wedding Dress



















7. Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret's Ballgowns (The two on the ends are Elizabeth's, and the center dress is Margaret's.)
