Victoria Howard – founder and editor
Having always had a passion for History, my fascination with the Royal Family began with that wedding in 2011. Following my step into the Royal-sphere, I became an advocate for Constitutional Monarchy, the Royal Family’s incredible work, and the British Monarchist Society & Foundation’s spokesperson.
I have continued to focus upon my penchant for the Early Modern era (mainly the Tudors and Stuarts), and will be beginning a Masters degree in this area shortly.
My bookshelves are almost as full as my wardrobe, but there is always room for more, whether that be the newest biography of a figure from the Tudor court, or a piece inspired by The Duchess of Cambridge.

I currently study Politics with International Relations at Aston University. I am very interested in current affairs and have a passion for our Monarchy and British history. World War II is a very interesting area of study for me.
I strongly believe that the United Kingdom benefits from Constitutional Monarchy, to protect the unwritten constitution that we have. I would class myself as a traditional person and I enjoy reading historical books. Furthermore, I enjoy flying as aviation is another passion of mine. I also enjoy to travel, especially when spending time in quintessential English villages.

I have always been a Royalist, actively promoting monarchies around the world from a young age. My passion and support for the British Royal Family was cemented during my undergraduate degree in International Politics & Military History, during which I studied the consequences of states lacking the stability that monarchies bring.
My MA in Politics & International Relations of the Middle East, and an internship in the Overseas Territories Directorate at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, secured in my mind the importance of our Royal Family for strengthening Britain’s relationship with the outside world – particularly with her Territories and Crown Dependencies.

Having grown up with a grandmother who has a display of china plates depicting the Royal Family, it was inevitable that I would end up a Royalist. After the Cambridges’ fairytale wedding, the first time I had ever seen such pageantry and pomp, I was hooked!
I’m a keen reader, with my books of choice being any historical fiction I can find. My main interest lies in the Tudor period, particularly Henry VIII, with the drama that ensued as he hopped from bride to bride.
I currently study International Business Management and Spanish at Heriot Watt University, which has also led to a keen interest in the Spanish Monarchy, especially the glamorous Queen Letizia.

After spending most of my career in business, I am now taking a different direction and starting my own venture dealing in antiques as well as vintage and retro collectables.
This has stemmed from my lifelong passion for British History. Periods of particular interest to me are the Tudors and from the reign of Queen Victoria, through the two World Wars, to the middle of the 20th century. For me, these eras in particular helped define Great Britain as a nation, both at home and internationally.
I am an ardent Royalist and supporter of our armed forces who, well into the 21st century, are still defining the tone for our great nation, and are as important and relevant to us now as they ever have been.

I enjoy all periods of history, but have always been particularly drawn to the study of great empires, from antiquity down to the modern age. My favourite period in British history is that of the early modern Stuart and Tudor dynasties.
At Stony Brook University, New York, I study European History with a focus on Classical Rome, Church history, and early modern Britain, Russia, and France. My reading of history has convinced me that Monarchy offers the least harmful, most effective, and ontologically highest form of governance known to humankind.
