Royal Central is a leading independent source for the latest news on the British Royal Family. From the latest news on The Queen and William and Kate, to some of the more intricate and historic parts of Monarchy. Royal Central has been cited on numerous occasions as a flagship authority on all things to do with British Royalty. From our editors’ appearances in the press to interviews on royal matters with other royalist organisations, Royal Central continues to be a rising star on the royal reporting scene.
With our wide range of writers on site, you’re never far short of a different take on things or an even more intricate look into the wonderful world that is the British Monarchy!
Royal Central’s origins were not originally in royal news, in fact, we began life tweeting facts about the British Royal Family under the Twitter handle of @RoyalFactsUK on 8th June 2012. Shortly after that, on 25th July, we decided to take it all one step further and open a website dedicated to the British Royal Family and on 30th July, we launched Royal Central BETA!
From there, we began developing Royal Central, initially providing regular blog posts on things to do with the Royal Family before moving on, in October to a WordPress format where we began posting royal news.
In November 2012, Royal Central underwent a major overhaul of its systems, including a new, much more reliable and faster host (whom we’re still with today, thanks very much TSO Host) and a completely new design for our site.
On 11th February, Royal Central announced our move to a new style of reporting. From 1st March 2013, we have been focusing much more on news and have separated factual articles from news reports in two different, yet equally important sections.
In August 2013, Royal Central decided to change our site design to reflect our need for new and different spaces to display our content – the design launches on 1st September.
Today, Royal Central has an average of over 130,000 unique visitors a month and is constantly growing.
Royal Central operates on a two-tier system. Royal Central has Writers (sometimes known as Bloggers) on the main tier. Writers publish articles on the latest royal news and also publish timeless articles on all manner of interesting things to do with the British Monarchy. On the top tier are Editors, who are responsible for maintaining Royal Central’s high standards and amending parts of the site where necessary as well as writing their own articles.
Although, in order to raise costs to run Royal Central, we display Google ads across our site, we do not endorse the product or service they’re offering and never do nor never will involve ourselves in any other sort of advertisement as we believe such a thing as, for example, product placement in posts would ruin the integrity of Royal Central as a source for accurate and to-the-point news.
Royal Central’s agenda is quite different to that of most journalistic websites in the fact that we always report on the latest royal news in a Monarchist way. In other words, our website supports the Monarchy and we always look to write about the British Royal Family in a way which highlights its achievements and importance in the United Kingdom. Our motto is and always will be “Long Live The Queen”!
