• Meghan Markle wrote about wanting to be a Princess in her old blog

    Years before the Duchess of Sussex even met her new husband, Prince Harry, she revealed that she wanted to be a Princess when she was growing up on her now-shut down lifestyle blog, The Tig. Writing about wanting to be a powerful figure back in 2014, she explained: "Little girls dream of being princesses. I, for one, was all about She-Ra, Princess of Power. For those of you unfamiliar with the '80s cartoon reference, She-Ra is the twin sister of He-Man, and a sword-wielding royal rebel known for her strength. We're definitely not talking about Cinderella here." Meghan wrote about

  • Find out why none of the royal family calls the Queen 'Elizabeth'

    It is a well-known fact that members of the public should never call the Queen by her first name 'Elizabeth', and instead refer to her as 'Your Majesty' as a first-time greeting and then 'Ma'am' thereafter, but did you know that even members of the royal family avoid using the monarch's first name?

  • How Kate Middleton is helping sister Pippa through her first pregnancy

    There's no denying that the Duchess of Cambridge and her sister Pippa Middleton have a strong sibling bond. Now that Pippa is due to welcome her first child with husband James Matthews later this year, it's likely that the expectant mother is turning to her older sister Kate for some much-needed advice!

  • Just more proof that Prince William and Kate Middleton are so perfectly in sync – see photos

    They're always perfectly in step, and just when we thought we couldn't find another reason to show how in sync Prince William and Kate are – we've managed! The couple, who started dating back in 2003, are even coordinated when it comes to their royal waves.

  • When will Princess Charlotte be given the title Princess Royal?

    Princess Charlotte is currently styled as Her Royal Highness, but her title will likely change in the future if she marries. She is also entitled to be the Princess Royal when her father Prince William becomes King – it's a title that is traditionally given to the eldest daughter of the monarch. But, there is no guarantee that this will happen as soon as William takes the throne. His aunt Princess Anne, 67, currently holds the title. "William will need to be king and Princess Anne dead for Charlotte to be named Princess Royal," Marlene Koenig, royal historian and founder
