Cadolia HRH Collection Candles
Named after the Duchess of Cambridge and Her Majesty, each candle has its own unique fragrance inspired by the royal women. The Catherine candle has top notes of yuza, basil and mandarin, complemented with base notes of blossoming florals.
“The Royal We” and “The Heir Affair” by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan
One would think “The Royal We” is loosely based on the relationship of William and Kate, but it’s far more complicated than that, as its sequel, which was released in July 2020, reveals. Royal fans gobbled up book one and were not disappointed by what unfolded in book two.
“The Other Side of the Coin: The Queen, the Dresser and the Wardrobe” by Angela Kelly LVO
Angela Kelly’s official title is Personal Assistant and Senior Dresser to the Queen, but she’s more like Her Majesty’s gatekeeper. Kelly provides fascinating details about the Queen’s wardrobe and little tidbits of gossip that make this coffee table-like book feel more like one you don’t want to put down. Plus she includes personal photos of the Queen, some of which are so casual you almost can’t believe Her Majesty gave Kelly the green light to write this book. And yet, we’re so glad she did.
“HRH: So Many Thoughts on Royal Style” by Elizabeth Holmes
Holmes, a veteran style journalist, took her successful Instagram analysis and did a deep dive into the hows and whys of a royal wardrobe. “The royals will never comment on [their looks],” Holmes told the New York Post. “They won’t give speeches, they won’t say, ‘This is why I am wearing this.’ They leave you to connect the dots.”
What Kate Wore 2021 Calendar
Each year, What Kate Wore and photographer Mark A.C. Stewart collaborate on a wall calendar. Every month not only features familiar photos of the Duchess of Cambridge, but also notable dates on the royal calendar.j
I’m fully aware that I appear a bit ridiculous wearing a collegiate-style crewneck sweatshirt sporting the letters HRH, but I do not care. I wear this sweatshirt (which comes in navy, black and heather grey) all the time. You know what? I’m probably going to replenish my stock soon due because I wear it a lot. Viva la HRH sweatshirt!

Majesty Magazine Annual Subscription
Each article in this monthly issue is well-researched, historically rich and unlike what you read in the daily papers. There are some issues I even keep as souvenirs and refer back to from time to time.
