I was having trouble with the old blog theme, so I've changed it to something more readable in Firefox. Things may be in disarray for a while!
I'm having blog hosting problems. Right now only older posts (from 2014 and earlier) are available. The whole blog may disappear again from time to time. Sorry. I hope to get this resolved within a few days.
UPDATE: OK, I think the situation is resolved, more or less. Some old images have been lost along the way, but they probably won't be missed. I'll try to get things more organized over the next few days. !!!
There is an intermittent problem today with Getty images not displaying. (This seems to affect all websites using embedded images from Getty, not just this site.) Sorry for the inconvenience; it probably won't last for very long.
Sorry, I ran out of time to write the Royal Week in Review, but you can find out what's been happening in the world of royalty this week by visiting the Royalty.nu News page.
I'm taking some time off, so there will be no Royal Week in Review this week, but you can still check out the Royalty.nu News page to see what's been going on in the world of royalty. And I'll be back to my royal duties soon.
Regular Royalty.nu visitors may know that for several years the main site has boasted two companion blogs — (1) the original World of Royalty Blog and (2) the Royal News Blog, which you are reading right now. Read more...
For family reasons I need to take some time off from blogging, so there will be no Royal Week in Review for the next few weeks. I may find time for a few other blog posts, however, and I'll continue to update the Royalty.nu News page.
Things should start to get back to normal around here by the end of the month!
UPDATED POST: Welcome to the new World of Royalty Blog! In some ways it's the same as the old blog, and in some ways it's better, I hope.
I think I've repaired most of the damage done during the blog's recent, er, hiccup. I hope you like the new theme. If you encounter any difficulties using the blog or notice anything that's still missing, please let me know in the comments.
I encountered difficulty updating WordPress, causing the theme to disappear, along with the archive page and all the Guardian articles. Sorry. I'll get things working again as soon as I can.
