  1. Charlotte! Can I confess that I am nervous for you, now keeping up with two very active calendars? But moreso, I am exceedingly grateful for your thoughtful posts covering a breadth of issues related to the royals and always highlighting the missions of those organizations involved. This is my go-to source for informative, well-balanced, and excellent posts!

    1. I second that. Charlotte you are a gem!

    2. Thank you so much, 2018 is going to be one exciting year :)

    3. Completely agree! I'm one of those crazy Americans who love following the Royal Family and I enjoy both blogs so much! Thank you for all your hard work and dedication!

    4. Not to sound like a complete copy cat but YES I too completely agree with these posts. I also love the British Royal Family and am very thankful that you not only post their activities but also that you do such an amazing job. So thank you!

    5. This comment has been removed by the author.

  2. I'm with Lacy above! I rarely comment , watch frequently - and, Charlotte- I can not imagine the new workload with this! It is clear that you are a perfectionist ( I mean that positively!) and want to do everything " just right". It surely comes across in your blogs- but this could easily be too much! oh my goodness! Charlotte- you are amazing!

  3. I agree with both of the above, and well done. Look forward to updates as they come to hand😊

  4. Between this and Duchess Kate are my first thing I look at every morning on my computer.

    A very proud Canadian

  6. I completely agree with the above comments about Charlotte's work on the Duchess Kate blog and this one. These are two sites I visit daily. I appreciate the work that Charlotte does and I learn so much! Thank you for all you do on these sites.

  7. Happiness seems to exude from Prince Harry in these photos. Happiness is absolutely contagious when you look at them together. Absolutely delightful!

    It crossed my mind that Harry and Meghan may have been invited to Anmer this weekend and that Kate was going down on Friday to make sure everything was ready for them.It will be increasingly difficult for them having any private time at Kensington Palace.

    1. Meghan is in California with her mom

  10. You are the best! Have loved reading about Kate and look forward to following Megan. Your posts are wonderfully attractive and informative. Thanks for ll the work you do.

  11. This is my go to info bank for anything about this two. Thank you very much.

  12. These are exciting times and it’s wonderful to see Harry so happy. I truly hope Harry & Meghan forge a strong bond with William & Catherine, Both of Diana’s sons have so much to offer & their wives support is invaluable. If Meghan learns from Catherine she will be in safe hands.

  13. I like this royal couple, prince Harry and Meghan are the perfect match; seeing them together warms the heart of millions of people around the world, and makes everyone feel the power of love, I mean true love. Happiness and love of this fantastic royal couple is contagious and lightening. It's always very nice to look at them. What a wonderful couple! Looking forward to celebrating their wedding soon.

  14. well this is my first time to comment. Would like to say from the US that this is the best coverage of the Young Royals that I have been able to find. I check on both your blogs as often as I can, mostly daily. I was in London last August and a lot of things I learned here helped me enjoy my visit. So would like to thank you for all your hard work. I do have one question about something I have noticed in most picture of William and Harry. Is there some reason they always hold their hands in front of them, you know hold left hand with right out in front. Is this something they are taught to do to keep from fidgeting or something else? Just curious.

    1. Thank you so much Texas US :)

      I suspect it's just habit with the placement of the hands :)

  15. Hi Charlotte
    I found your Kate blog by accident and I must admit I tend to check in most days ... it's a lovely and unbiased read. so glad u decided to do a Meghan one aswell ... keep up the good work

  16. You do an amazing job. Your blog is extremely professional, thoughtful and thorough. Christina from Mississippi.

    1. I really appreciate your comments Christina :)

  17. Could you please move M's calender (right below the header, where now "about" sits)to the 2nd position like on the Kate site for readers' convenience?

  18. new engagement:

  19. Charlotte, would there be any way you could include the approximate time of events when available? It would help us know when to check back for updates!

  20. I love the past appearances section! Thank you.

  21. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will undertake an official visit to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga, and New Zealand in the Autumn 🇦🇺🇫🇯🇹🇴🇳🇿 The tour will fall on the occasion of the @invictusgames2018 in Sydney

  22. Hi Charlotte! Thanks so much for this terrific blog and for all of your hard work. Just a small typo I found - I believe the Battle of Amiens calendar event should show August 8th rather than July 8th. Thanks again!

    1. Thank you so much for alerting me. The calendar page is not only a guide for readers but a tool for me in terms of planning, so I greatly appreciate it :)
