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!


Episode 17 - Cambridges in London

In this week's (rather short) episode, we discuss all the Royal birthdays; Kate, Mary, and Letizia's latest engagements, and the Cambridges moving to London. Enjoy!


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!


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!


How Does The Pressure To Stay Thin Affect The Royal Ladies?

In a special 'mini' episode we answer a fan question based on the pressures the royal ladies face to stay thin. We discuss the causes and effects of the media's preconceptions and possible remedies the royal ladies have available to them, whilst maintaining the image of their respective monarchies. Enjoy!


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!


Episode 11 - Lest We Forget

We're back with an episode covering the latest Royal news. We discuss Remembrance day events attended by the British monarchy, an ANZAC tour by Queen Maxima and King Willem-Alexander, as well as updates on Spain, Belgium, and Monaco. We also discuss some new Royal artworks, and the newest royal love affair. Enjoy! Please note we do not have any news regarding Denmark as we had some technical issues, and that section was lost


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 9 - Cambridges in Canada

In our new episode, we finally get to what we've all been waiting for: the Cambridges in Canada! We take a deep dive into the Cambridges trip in British Columbia. We talk babies, dresses and earrings; and even discuss the financial effects of Kate's wardrobe. What are you waiting for??
