Today, the 6th February, marks Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's Sapphire Jubilee - the 65th anniversary of her accession to the throne! We take a brief look at her reign, including highlights such as her silver jubilee, various Royal Weddings, and the birth of many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and lowlights such as 1992, the annus horribilis. Join us as we toast to Her Majesty. Long live the Queen!


Happy Birthday, HRH!

We're back from holiday and ready to take on the year! In our first official episode for 2017, we discuss the Danish New Years Celebrations, a Spanish military parade, and of course, HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, who turns 35 today! We also talk about our holidays quite extensively in the last 20 minutes of the podcast, so if you're not up for it, just skip over the rest of the episode. Enjoy!


Episode 12 - Is Kate Lazy About Engagements?

In our new episode, we discuss a controversial topic: Is Kate lazy about her engagements? With an almost empty calender for the rest of the year, we take a dive into different sides of the argument. We also look at Prince Harry's tour, the Belgian state visit to the Netherlands and also Queen Margrethe's role in designing sets and costumes for the Royal Danish Ballet. Have a listen!


Episode 8 - Royals in New York

In this week's instalment, we discuss everything except the Canada Tour. We talk about all the royals that were in New York lately for UN meetings, all the engagements that the Swedish royal ladies attended recently, Queen Maxima's wild fashion choices, Queen Letizia's awesome style and, of course, the Duchess of Cambridge and how she stepped out of her comfort zone. We also speculate about potential royal weddings and the excitement of a new royal baby. Enjoy!


Episode 7 - Royal Catch-Up

In our new episode, we catch-up on all the royal news since Rio. We have a look at Royal Ladies #twinning, cute babies at christenings, the Cambridges and we share our excitement for the Canada tour. Enjoy!


Episode 5 - Royals in Rio

In our latest instalment, we discuss the Olympics! We talk about who's there, who's not, who met & fell in love there, and, of course - who was almost knocked out by a flag there. We have a look at what the Cambridges have been up to, and we discuss Chris O'Neill's interview where he gave us a little insight into each of his children's personalities (and whether or not there might be a few more royal babies on the way!). Have a listen, and please let us know what you think!
