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. ;)

As the days count down to the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, it seems like everybody and their brother is offering some sort of news update. However, while the most basic information is widely available (Westminster Abbey, April 29th, and so on), a lot of the correct royal details seem to be hidden amongst rampant speculation and rumors. Certified Royal Experts can fill in where these professionals are missing the mark.

1. This special and rare material has been included in royal wedding rings since 1923, and William and Kate may likely follow in the tradition. What is this material?

2. Since the Royal Family has been mum so far on what royal peerage William will receive (if any), many different ideas on what his new bride will be called have all been batted around. Why are the following title suggestions incorrect?
a. Princess Catherine of Wales
b. Catherine, Princess of Wales

3. Kate's engagement has thrown her family into the spotlight, especially her younger sister Pippa, who will be maid of honor. Apart from best man Prince Harry, just who are these people in the wedding party?

a. The Lady Louise Windsor
b. The Honourable Margarita Armstrong-Jones
c. Grace van Cutsem
d. Eliza Lopes

Page boys:
e. Billy Lowther-Pinkerton
f. Tom Pettifer

4. Part of the royal hullabaloo surrounding the wedding have been calls for William to pass over his father and succeed his grandmother as King. Apart from nullifying the work of a man who has trained to rule for nearly his entire life, why will this not happen?

5. Where are the official sources to get British Royal Wedding information?
