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... Continue reading →

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... Continue reading →

- Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall wins for worst hat (don't know why she insists on massive hats or fascinators that cover her hair and practically dominate her) and outfit (the 'gold' seems to outshine the Queen)
