Average Response Time for Each Royal Family


Response times will vary depending on how busy the royal's office is at the time. Sometimes it can be a while from when the 1st reply is sent out and the last. So if you see others getting a reply for a event don't worry, give it time.

 **On average, responses usually take about 1-2 Months. ** 

**This is based of my own experience. Your experience will differ depending on what you write for, who exactly you write to, and time of the year.**

You can check out responses for each of these royal families here.

    1. I am glad you have had such great response times! I hope you never have to experience a 2 month wait or the dreaded 4 months! (that only happened twice)

      There are a lot of different factors that can affect response time. What you write for? Is it something they have a pre-typed reply for? When you sent your letter? How busy their office was at the time? etc. I've seen people write for the same event and get replies 2 months apart.

      I've written a bunch over a span of a few years. I've gotten replies fairly quickly and I've also had to wait forever, but I do feel like my response time is typical of what I've seen with other people. So if you find yourself having to wait longer than 2 weeks, don't worry that is perfectly normal.

    1. Cześć! Write about someone you are intrested in. I wouldn’t worry too much about blogging about a Royal that someone is already bloging about. There are going to be people intreseted in which ever royal you choose who have never read the others blogs. There may be people who will read both blogs. Or people who like the content on your blog better.

      There are hundreds of blogs about Royals in various languages. Yes, a lot of them are going to be quite similar. Every blogger is going to be reporting on the same outfit and the same engagements. But how well they cover it, is going to differ.

      If you want to write about a royal every one writes about, do something a little different to stand out. Why not write about a couple. A lot of blogs don’t focus to much on the husbands. Or focus more on the engagments than the fashion. Of if your really intrested in fashion. How about trying to find “RepliKates” of the royals outfit, from polish designers.

      But at the end of the what will draw readers to your blog is good and intresting content.
