Royal Quiz!


How well do you know our Royal family?


We were chatting in the Laterlife offices the other day about who is in line to the throne and checking it out, the British line of Succession comes up with a few surprises. 

For instance, Princess Anne, the Princess Royal, is now 12th in line and Prince Harry is now fifth (full details at bottom here).

So we thought it could be fun to check up on a few other aspects….how do you do in the quiz below?

  1. Princess Charlotte of Cambridge was born in May 2015. What are her two middle names?

  2. Who is the Countess of Strathearn?

  3. In which year did Prince Charles marry Diana?

  4. For nearly 50 years, between 1953 and 2002, Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, had a London home. What was it?

  5. Who wrote the 1989 children’s book Budgie the Little Helicopter?

  6. What is the Duchess of Cambridge’s mother’s first name?

  7. After the birth of Princess Charlotte last May, 2015, who became the second female in line of succession to the throne?

  8. What was the big royal announcement announced in July 1947?

  9. How many monarchs have there been since William the Conqueror obtained the crown of England?

  10. The Duchess of Cambridge graduated from the University of St Andrews in Scotland in 2005. What was her subject?
  11.  

  12. And a final question…most of us recognise Buckingham Palace but can you name this London Royal Residence?
