      November & December Q&A (2018)

      Post your General Royal Questions & I will get to them as soon as possible. Questions about Writing to the Royals or Replies have been moved to our Q&A on Gert's Royal Replies

      Question 1: Do you think Meghan Markle is having Twins?

      Answer: I don't think so. There aren't any real signs suggesting that Duchess Meghan might be expecting twins. 

      Question 2: Do you think Prince Philip will attend the Christmas day service with the Royal Family this year.

      Answer: I think Prince Philip will definitely be at Sandringham with his family for Christmas. He wouldn't miss it. But whether or not he attends the Christmas day service depends on how he is feeling that day. 

      Question 3: Who is your favorite royal?

      Answer: This is a hard question to answer as there are so many royals that I admire. But my absolute favorites would be Duchess Kate & Duchess Meghan.
