Buckingham Palace and Fashioning A Reign

Last Saturday, I finally visited Buckingham Palace (or as some people call it, The Queen’s London home). I had bought my State Rooms and Garden Highlights Tour ticket (£30.50) back in May although I later discovered that there were plenty of tickets still available for purchase in June and early July. Buckingham Palace began as Buckingham House, …

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? …

For my non-Canadian readers, Victoria Day is a statutory holiday (bank holiday for UK readers) in Canada* celebrated on the Monday before 25th May.

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.

Mixed Royals

I’m starting this month with a Mixed-Month-May post! Many (girls and women) have often asked if it would be possible for a prince or king to marry someone of ‘visible minority’. Of course, it always depends on the royal member but interracial unions have taken place in the past century (I’m sure it’s centuries too) and …

The snowflake diadem was designed in 2008 and approved by …

BBC Period Dramas

I’ve noticed that one of the main terms my viewers search for is BBC period dramas. Out of all the period dramas based on literary works, BBC’s adaptations never fails our expectations. Even non-literary works by BBC delight us with brilliant actors, stunning scenery, and exquisite costumes. I’ve compiled a list from my Period Dramas – TV …
