Toff meets the Royals

The Queen of the Jungle met the king in waiting today as Prince Charles visited the ITV studios in London. The Prince of Wales was snapped chatting with Toff, otherwise Georgia Toffolo, as he popped into This Morning for some anniversary celebrations. The prince is patron of the Royal Television Society which turns 90 this year while the show that Toff has just joined is marking three decades and counting on screen. No wonder everyone is smiling.

This Morning has changed quite a bit in the thirty years since Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan announced it to the world and to mark its big birthday it got a royal interview. The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall settled into the famous sofa for a chat - we get to see the results on Thursday, February 1st 2018. There was also time for a natter with Toff who has just joined This Morning hot on the heels of her win in last year's I'm A Celebrity.....

The royal couple also met many of the presenters and experts who have made the show so popular and got a chance to meet Digby, the This Morning puppy (let's face it, that's always going to win over royal visitors). But that was just for starters. During their time at ITV, they also chatted with the Good Morning Britain crew and met Lorraine. In fact, Charles and Camilla made their way through pretty much the entire daytime line up so chances are if you put the station on tomorrow at some point you will see the heir to the throne and his wife.

The TV stars who met the royals have started sharing photos on social media but we've not had any interview snippets which means we'll all have to stay tuned to see Charles and Camilla talking telly. Coming to a set near you, right after this break......

Another month, another glossy mag with a princess as its star. After Kate did Vogue and Mary did Vogue (again), this time round it's Eugenie doing Harper's Bazaar. The seventh in line to the throne features in the US September issue of the magazine, looking very glamourous while she's at it.

The House of Windsor at 100: daughters of the Crown

On July 17th 1917, George V issued a royal proclamation changing the name of his royal house and family to Windsor. It was the beginning of dynasty that would set records and change the concept of modern monarchy. And it's a house built on and by women. We've already met some of them when remembering the consorts, now we turn to the royal daughters. Four women have been born to the monarchs of the House of Windsor, all of them hugely important. As we mark the centenary of this special dynasty, here are the daughters of those who have worn the Crown.

The Queen's January

January is always a low key month for the Queen. She stays at Sandringham throughout the month and we mostly get to see her as she heads out to church. But while the public appearances have been as restrained as usual, Elizabeth II has found herself hovering close to the headlines in what's proved to be a busy month for the monarch.
