Writing to the Royal Family

It’s always a lovely surprise to receive mail, so long as it is not the latest bill or credit card statement, or an advertisement for something that is not very interesting. In the past two weeks, I have received quite a few tweets and comments asking how I was the lucky recipient of the Thank You …

Trooping the Colour down The Mall

This year was my first Trooping the Colour (TTC) experience. Although I had discussed where would be the best place to watch with fellow royal tweeters, there’s always something new we learn after the whole experience. So here are some tips in case you’re thinking of attending in the future! What time should I arrive? …

Happy 5th Blogiversary to The Lady & The Rose!

Happy 5th Birthday to my blog! In my 3rd blogiversary post, I mentioned that I started my second Wordpress account and post on the wedding day of Prince William and Catherine, 29th April 2011. My first blog post has now been deleted so there is no proof except for a wreath from WordPress: However, I can tell …

Shop My Replikate Wardrobe!

These Replikate items are currently listed on eBay (seller: oldworldelegance): I think the majority of us fell in love with Kate’s Erdem lace dress during her visit to Canada in 2011. I couldn’t believe my luck when I spotted this ZARA lace dress in 2012. Although I had it tailored to fit a small, I still …

Royalty in Film

This is a compilation of royalty (mainly monarchs, consorts and descendents) portrayed in film (movies and TV series/miniseries/movies). You can also find the list on my imdb list. Most of these films are filled with inaccuracies (as expected) so please take care not to believe everything you watch. 😉 AUSTRIA Sissi Trilogy – Empress Sisi, Franz-Joseph …

Review of Sheer Tights

Now that the weather has improved – at least it has in Vancouver, but I know it’s still winter in the rest of Canada (sorry about that!) – I can finally post on sheer/nude (as in flesh tone) tights. Ever since I transitioned to sheer tights in my teen years, I’ve been frustrated by how easily …

HRH Prince George’s Debut!

23 July 2013 The royal trio (i.e. Prince William, his wife Catherine, and their son, Baby Cambridge) left St Mary’s Hospital today at around 19:15 BST. Many of us had been sitting in front of the telly or a/many electronic device(s), watching the royal baby monitor for hours. Fine, we were staring at a door …

The public was informed around 4 hours later through the press and shortly after, the official announcement was displayed outside Buckingham Palace.

Coronation Service

  Thoughts on today’s Coronation Service This morning, the entire royal family attended the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation service at Westminster Abbey. Due to the time difference, I was not able to watch the service so I was at least 6 hours behind when I read the updates on Twitter. While most of …

YOU are the Role Model

      When I was little, ‘Princess Diana’ (correct form: Diana, Princess of Wales) was my childhood role model. I wanted to meet her as I was quite certain she would understand me. We’re both July babies, after all. She reminded me of my favourite childhood Disney princess, Cinderella, most likely because both were …

Reality Check: A What Did Kate Do Post

  With exactly 4 months left until one is a quarter of a century, I have been thinking a lot about how I’ve grown these past 8 months. I’ve made the difficult decision to leave Facebook (which I don’t regret though curiosity tempts me to stalk my acquaintances to see if they’re engaged or pregnant), …

A Royal Baby Prince?

  On 25 January 2013, I dreamt that the Duchess of Cambridge is carrying a little princess. I was confused in the dream because I’d thought she would be having a little prince. The dream confused me so much that I started to wonder if it would be true. Yet it wasn’t long before part …

Beautiful Brows @ Bombay Brow Bar

Eyebrows are such an important part of your face. They help define your eyes and can change your appearance if you switch styles. I grew up with the ugliest brows that made me look even more hideous than I already was. At 12, I tried to fix my brows but for the next 10+ years, …
