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!


Victoria - The Mini-Series

In a special episode, Ellen and Renate review the iTV mini-series Victoria: taking a lok at the props, sets, actors and factual errors; as well as the incredibly bad CGI and the B - F plots. As always, have a listen, please review us, and enjoy! Happy new year!


A Royal Christmas

In our Christmas episode we take a bit of a break from our usual style - we discuss the latest royal news, Christmas pictures, Christmas plans and Royal Christmas gifts. From the Queen stepping down from 25 of her patronages, to Camilla attending the Sovereign's Parade to how the Cambridges are spending Christmas, we explore all the events of late. From Ellen and Renate, Merry Christmas and 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!


October Royal Round-up

We catch up with what the Royals have been up to in October. Jam-packed with engagements and scandals, we've got a lot to talk about! Join us to discuss Kate, Letizia and Mary's royal hits and Maxima's royal misses. Enjoy!


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 4 - Are W.E. In Hell?


In a special episode, we review Madonna's movie 'W.E.' - possibly one of the most terrible movies in existence. We discuss the two storylines that run concurrently in the movie, the acting, the script and the directing. The movie is vaguely based around Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson's love affair, and its influence on a fictional woman living in Manhattan in 1998. We watched it so you don't have to. Enjoy!
PS: I am super sorry about the terrible audio quality on this episode. I forgot to put off the input microphone when we recorded, and now there's an echo on the track. I tried to fix it as best I could, but there is still some feedback in the audio!
