Queen Elizabeth has slid down the pole and is no longer among the three hundred richest individuals in the United Kingdom. Somebody break the news to Prince George that he can have either an entire Toys R Us or an entire FAO Schwartz for Christmas, but not both. Down here among the hoi polloi one must make choices,… » 4/29/15 2:20pm 4/29/15 2:20pm

During last summer's trip to Northern Ireland, Queen Elizabeth paid a visit to the Game of Thrones set. But, much to the dismay of fans of Royals Doing Things photography, she declined to sit on the Iron Throne of Westeros for a quick pic.

Belgian Royal Family Very Sorry For Confusing Dead and Living Queens

Correspondence is hard and fraught with potential mix-ups. Sometimes you thank the wrong great-aunt for those lovely crystal candlesticks. And sometimes you thank people for the expression of their sympathies on the death of the wrong queen. I'm a cotillion drop-out but I believe that's what they call a faux pas. » 2/05/15 2:00pm 2/05/15 2:00pm
