    A Very Spooky Week for Parliament…and the Royals

    A Very Spooky Week for Parliament…and the Royals

    Happy Halloween, RoRos! This week, the U.K. is grappling with a frankly frightening political clime, while the royals’ worst fears are realized with The Crown trailer. Very relatable: Camilla decided she needs to get away from it all. For this week in royal history, we flashback to Diana and Charles’s first post-wedding interview. There’s also an Archewell rebrand, a NYC play about Dodi and Diana, Mike Tindall goes rogue and more. Please send us your best royal-themed Halloween costumes on @RoyallyObsessedPodcast on Insta! We’d love to see—and share!

Must listen if you ❤️ the Royal Family!

You ladies knock it out of the park each week. Fairness, fashion & facts, what more could one want. Keep going, you are the bright spot in my week!

Biased Reporting by Sussex Cheerleaders

Please check your facts. For example, the price of Harry’s memoir has dropped by over 36% already, with months to go before publication. The pre-order price dropped from $36 to $22 on Amazon’s official website. Doesn’t bode well for sales. This podcast is a PR campaign for Harry and Meghan, and is quickly becoming as irrelevant as H&M. Unfortunately, the podcasters come off as “mean girls” with their disrespect for working Royals. The nicest thing they can say about Catherine, Princess of Wales is to sometimes positively comment on her dress. Ridiculous! This is not reporting.

Watered Down Reporting

I’ve been listening to Royally Obsessed for almost three years, since the pandemic began. If you are looking for a journalistic take on the royal family, this isn’t it. The hosts are certainly charming and entertaining, but they try to be everything to everyone, which creates an environment of lukewarm opinions.

Often, the biggest royal story of the week will be given one or two minutes in their royal highs and lows section, seemingly because they never want to make the Queen or Cambridges look bad. I love that they respect all members of the family; the issue comes when they tiptoe around extremely important events that shed negative light on the institution.

Their best episodes feature guests who share their views and opinions with passion and commitment. I still listen every week, although often I stop halfway through an episode, but you will enjoy it if you’re looking for a lighthearted and somewhat shallow show.

And because I have to say it, “The Crown” is a dramatization based on historical events, not fiction. Massive difference.
