My Thoughts 

The second I saw the title for this, I knew I really wanted to read it (N. American, fairly obsessed with English history, and since royalty has historically played a giant role…).

There’s enough to this guide for fans of royal history, as well as for those of the current day working royals, with most of the shop and dining offerings being less than vintage. 

Geographically arranged with information and trivia about each place, and accompanying photos, this is an excellent guide and something I’ll definitely bring with me when I’m finally able to visit England for a couple of months. 


Thank you to White Owl and NetGalley for the DRC!


London and the Royal Family are inextricably intertwined. Generations of monarchs have been crowned, married and buried there.

Linking Hampton Court Palace to Greenwich is a royal river, which in turn has been used for royal celebrations and progresses as well as a route to imprisonment and execution.

In the current century, London became a focus of Royal Jubilees.

Wherever you go within London there are places and scenes linked to past and present royalty.

Thousands of people come every year to see the stunning places associated with the Royal Family, to watch spectacular ceremonies like Changing of the Guard, The Trooping of the color, or simply to explore the history and heritage of Royal London.

Royal London highlights everything from Westminster Abbey, the site of coronations and weddings to the Victoria & Albert Museum and Horse Guards Parade. Take a look at royal palaces such as Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace and Kew Palace. Discover amazing stories at the Tower of London.

Discover where the Duchess of Cambridge danced with Paddington Bear, where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge together with Prince Harry dueled with wands, the bakery popular with Meghan, Duchess of Suffolk, an apothecaries garden of which the Prince of Wales is patron and some of Princess Eugenie’s artistic venues.

Take a trip to RAF Hendon and see the helicopter piloted by the Duke of Cambridge while serving with the RAF Search & Rescue or explore the football grounds supported by royal princes. Shop in the stores that are used by Royalty.

Discover London from a royal perspective exploring the shops, places and venues linked to modern royalty.
