Your ultimate Royal entertainment guide for your quarantine


CREDIT: YAHOO! FINANCE Here's a good place to start - Meghan's documentary Elephant drops on Disney+ today. She does voiceover work for the doc.

Stuck in the house and bored? I’ve got your back! There are enough Royal Family-related books, TV shows, movies, documentaries, and podcasts to get you through at least a week or two of quarantine. So stay home, cozy up, and enjoy my favorite Royal Family-related entertainment.

Any I missed? Shoot me an email and I’ll add it!

Books, Magazines, a Cookbook, and a Blog

If you’re a big reader like me, you need a stack of books at your bedside at all times. I have read basically every book about Royals ever published – here are my favorites.

· The Diana Chronicles, Tina Brown

· The Royals, Kitty Kelley

· Diana: Her True Story, Andrew Morton

· William and Catherine: A Royal Wedding, Andrew Morton

· Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, Andrew Morton

· The Queen and Di, Ingrid Seward

· My Husband and I, Ingrid Seward

· Elizabeth the Queen: The Life of a Modern Monarch, Sally Bedell Smith

· Prince Charles: The Passions and Paradoxes of an Improbable Life, Sally Bedell Smith

· Ninety-Nine Glimpses of Princess Margaret, Craig Brown

· Literally anything by Katie Nicholl or Christopher Andersen

· More of a magazine person? No magazines do Royal coverage better than Vanity Fair and Town & Country.

· In the mood to cook while quarantined? Check out the Duchess of Sussex’s cookbook, Together: Our Community Cookbook. And then bring the food over to my house. I'm running low.

· Also, you can totally find back blogs of Meghan’s The Tig with a little Googling.

· Or you could just catch up on back posts of the best Royal Family blog of all time – The Duchess Commentary.
