To mark the first anniversary of the Royal Central website I have chosen my favourite 5 blog posts from the past year.
1. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend – The Queen’s Jewellery
My first choice is Ellen Couzens’ blog about the Queen’s jewellery. We hear so much about the crown jewels so I really enjoyed reading about the Queen’s personal jewellery and the fabulous pictures helped too! http://www.royalcentral.co.uk/blogs/diamonds-are-a-girls-best-friend-the-queens-jewellery-664
2. The peculiar world of noble titles
I love this blog by Martin, it makes all the confusing titles make complete sense. http://www.royalcentral.co.uk/blogs/the-peculiar-world-of-noble-titles-10097
3. The Dark History of the Black Prince’s Ruby
This post by a guest blogger comes in at number 3. I really enjoyed this whole series on the Imperial state crown’s jewels, but this was my favourite as it involved some murder and mystery as well as Medieval history! http://www.royalcentral.co.uk/blogs/the-dark-history-of-the-black-princes-ruby-6687
4. An Apology to Camilla — Say What?!?
Perhaps a controversial 4th choice, but I really enjoyed reading this blog by Megan. I could relate to a lot of the points made and it did seem to spark a bit of a debate! http://www.royalcentral.co.uk/blogs/an-apology-to-camilla-say-what-8498
5. 10 things to do while waiting for Baby Cambridge
I think Katie’s first blog for Royal Central is my all time favourite, at least it’s the first that made me laugh out loud. I think we all needed some relief from baby fever by this point and her blog provided it. http://www.royalcentral.co.uk/blogs/10-things-to-do-while-waiting-for-baby-cambridge-11734
So there’s my top 5. Happy birthday Royal Central and if you have a different favourite please let me know.
