I have been interested in Royalty since of
five. I still remember watching the wedding of Beatrix of Holland to Claus von
Amsberg on TV or seeing her Her Majesty the Queen, making visits abroad.
I am thankful to my mother for this interest of mine as she was the one who made sure I
would watch all Royalty related TV Shows.
When I was a teenager Royalty scrapbooking became a big hobby of
mine. Once I moved to Canada in 1984 I was absolutley delighted that I now had the
opportunity to see some of the British Royal in person.
I should mention though that back in Europe while travelling to the Principality
of Liechtenstein in 1980 I saw Fuerst Franz Joseph as well as his daughter , Princess
Nora, at a skirace.
Here in Canada I was lucky enough to see the late Princess of Wales, Diana, and her
husband at the Vancouver Expo in 1986 ! What excitement! The pictures I took aren't the
greatest due to security but I will add them nevertheless. The page I have
created first covers the visit of the Duke and Duchess of York to Edmonton, Alberta in
1987. I was lucky enough to stand in the second row. Thus I was able to take some nice
BTW SArah was delightful! She was chatting rather nicely with the lady in front of me
and she was quite at ease with a little girl as well. Andrew seemed a bit more reserved.
This page will
serve as my on-line scrapbook as well as a good resource for roylty links, and some
genealogy, another hobby of mine! Time permitting I hope I can achieve this goal
