In light of the increasing number of spurious "royal experts" infiltrating the media, Princess Palace has created this online testing and training center/centre (a.k.a. trivia quizzes) to facilitate the recognition and certification of actual royal experts. Anyone receiving certification may add C.R.E. (certified royal expert) after one's name. This site is created and maintained entirely for fun. Its creator asserts no authority for certifying anyone's qualifications for anything. ;)

  1. Goodness!! This is difficult! May I attempt some of it?

    1) The Duke of York is Prince Andrew; and the Duke of Lancaster is, I think, the Queen - and to the best of my knowledge they are not at war.
    2) The eldest daughter of the monarch in England is 'Princess Royal'...Was it a Dauphine in France??
    3)The dauphin is the French king's son.
    4) The heir to the throne in the UK is the Prince of Wales; in the Netherlands is it the Prince of Orange? In of the Astorias or something like that? And in Russia, Tsarevich.
    5). I haven't a it just the Queen's children and spouse? In which case it would be 5...unless it also include William and Harry...Hmm...

    These are difficult but much fun! What a great idea - thank you! :-)
