• Prince Harry has been wearing this special bracelet for nearly 20 years

    Many royal watchers would say that Prince Harry has refined his style since meeting his now-wife the Duchess of Sussex - though one thing remains unchanging about his attire. In fact, Harry has stuck to one fashion rule for many years, with one very special piece of jewellery that he has worn since he was a teenager: a silver bracelet worn on his right wrist.

  • Why Prince Louis' christening will have extra significance for the Queen

    There is no doubt that Prince Louis' christening will be a special day for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the whole royal family, but even more so for the Queen and Prince Philip – for one very special, and romantic reason. The Prince's big day, which falls on Monday 9 July, will be the exact same day that the monarch and her husband announced their engagement in 1947, exactly 71 years ago. Despite having been privately engaged for nearly a year, the then-Princess Elizabeth and Philip Mountbatten officially announced their wedding on Wednesday 9 July 1947 and posed

  • Here's why Kate Middleton once attended two royal weddings without Prince William

    It may be daunting turning up to a wedding alone, but in 2008 the Duchess of Cambridge did just then when she was still the girlfriend of Prince William. Kate attended two royal weddings alone, without her date; the first was to Peter Phillips and Autumn Kelly's ceremony in May 2008, and the second was to Lady Rose Windsor and George Gilman's nuptials in July of that year.
