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. ;)

Sisterly Love

With The Duchess of Cambridge (a.k.a Princess Catherine) and her sister Philippa 'Pippa' Middleton making headlines lately, I thought a quiz about royal sisters would be a nice challenge. See if you can identify each pair. You may submit your answers using the comments button or e-mail them to

1. The Queen of England and the Empress of Russia
2. Two discarded queens: One gone mad and One who 'lost' two English husbands
3. Queens of Revolution: One who lost her head and one who led a counter-revolution
4. The pair who introduced Rasputin to the Imperial Family
5. Scandalous sisters: One married a playboy but became an HRH and one ran away with the circus.

  3. Hello Cheryl, thank you for another interesting quiz!

    1. Marie Feodorovna of Russia and Alexandra of Britain – (Dagmar and Alexandra of Denmark)/
    2. Catherine of Aragon and her sister, Juana of Castille/Spain.
    3. Possibly....Marie Antoinette and Maria Carolina???
    4. Militsa and Stana (Anastasia) – the ‘black women’ - the Montenegrin sisters who introduced Alix to Rasputin.
    5. Hmmm....this was very taxing!!! My knowledge of royalty tends to fade after 1918 but, for some bizarre reason, I thought of Monaco! Grace Kelly’s daughters...Stephanie and Caroline??? (Am really not sure about this one!)

    Thank you!
