We've gotta be honest and say that our love for all things royal seems to be growing by the minute. Between Harry and Meghan's love story, Kate and Will's adorable kiddos and the birth of baby Archie, we just can't get enough of the monarchs.

For our fellow royal fans, we've put together a quiz so you can discover which member of the Royal family you are. 

We can all admit we've day dreamed about being a prince or princess at some stage.

Here it is, and be sure to let us know who you get!

The Duchess of Sussex has made her first public appearance since welcoming her baby boy Archie last month. The new mum attended Trooping the Colour with her husband Prince Harry.

Meghan looked as stunning as ever in a navy blue ensemble by Givenchy and a hat by Noel Stewart. The new mum was glowing as she arrived at Buckingham Palace for Queen Elizabeth’s birthday celebration.

Meghan joined her husband Prince Harry, The Duchess of Cambridge and The Duchess of Cornwall for the carriage procession this morning.

Queen Elizabeth celebrates her 93rd birthday today, even though her actual birthday is April 21.

The spectacular Trooping the Colour is one of the biggest events for the royals so we’re not surprised to see Meghan make an appearance this year.

The Duchess has taken a step back from her royal duties as she is on maternity leave. She has not been seen in public since May 8 when she introduced baby Archie to the world with Prince Harry.

It is understood that Meghan will take three months maternity leave, meaning she will officially return to royal duties later in the summer.

“Three months’ maternity is standard in the US for American mums – they don’t normally get the six or even 12 months women get here in the UK. So this is totally normal for Meghan.”

The Duchess of Sussex celebrated her first Mother’s Day on Sunday. America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Kenya, Japan and countries across Europe celebrated Mother’s Day on May 12 this year.

In honour of her first Mother’s Day, Meghan shared an intimate photo of her baby boy Archie.

She posted a photo of her holding his tiny feet on Instagram and fans noticed a touching nod to Princess Diana, her late mother-in-law, in the background of the photo.

In the background of the photo, which is believed to have been taken in the grounds of Frogmore Cottage, there are purple flowers.

It is understood that they are forget-me-not flowers, which were Diana’s favourite.

Meghan penned a heartfelt note, where she remembered mums who are no longer with us.

The Duchess wrote: "Paying tribute to all mothers today – past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered. We honor and celebrate each and every one of you.

Meghan never met Princess Diana but Prince Harry has previously shared that his mum would have adored Meghan.

The new dad said they would have been as thick as thieves if she was still here today.

There’s no doubt Harry and Meghan will ensure that baby Archie knows all about his late-grandmother and the incredible legacy she left behind.

We’ve been waiting far too long for the third season of The Crown to return to Netflix and it looks like we’ll be waiting even longer than we hoped.

Fans of the show are going to have to wait another few months to see Olivia Colman, Tobias Menzies, Ben Daniels and Helena Bonham Carter take on the iconic roles of Britain’s Royal Family.

According to Deadline, the third season of The Crown will air in the second half of the year, which means we have to wait until after July to binge-watch the show.

Netflix commented: “We’re looking forward to a strong slate of global content in the second half of the year, including new seasons of some of our biggest series.”

It has been confirmed that the upcoming season will focus on Princess Margaret’s troubled love life, as it follows the breakdown of her marriage to Antony ‘Tony’ Armstrong-Jones'. We will also be introduced to Camilla Parker Bowles in season three.

There will also be a huge focus on the life of Prince Charles, including his relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles this season.

Call The Midwife’s Emerald Fennell will play Camilla Parker Bowles and Josh O’ Connor will play Prince Charles.

It is understood that season three will be set during the 1970s. The Duke of Windsor passed away in 1972, so we have a feeling his death will be a major storyline during season three.

There’s no doubt the next season of The Crown will be worth the wait.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have officially moved into their home in Windsor. Harry and Meghan made the big move from Kensington Palace to the most beautiful ten bedroom home Frogmore Cottage.

The couple’s new home has undergone a major transformation ahead of the arrival of their first child. It is understood that the pair will have even more privacy at their new house which is exactly what they need ahead of the birth of baby Sussex.

It is believed Meghan and Harry hired designers Vicky Charles and Julia Corden of Charles and Co. to refurbish their home.

The 10 bedroom house has been turned into a lavish family home. It features a nursery and even has space for a yoga studio and a gym.

The plans for the house included two conservatory extensions, extensive landscaping, permission for a bedroom to be built above a studio on the property, and a few new fireplaces.

The parents-to-be even had a £50,000 green energy unit installed in the eco-friendly pad.

The property is extremely special to the royal couple. Not only will it be their first family home, but they also held their private evening wedding party and shot their engagement photos at Frogmore Cottage.

There’s no doubt Harry and Meghan are overjoyed to have settled in at their new home in Windsor.

Meghan and Harry are not far away from becoming parents for the time.

And as they gear up to welcome their first child, they have been busy getting their home ready in preparation.

The couple is residing at their Cotswold home and Harry's Nottingham Cottage in Kensington Palace now.

The Palace announced their move to Frogmore Cottage in November, saying that the pair would be there in early 2019.

So what's Frogmore Cottage like?

A gift from the Queen, it boasts 10 bedrooms and renovations are in process.

According to ELLE, ''The hope is the renovation work at Frogmore Cottage will be complete before the baby arrives.''

The plans for the house include two conservatory extensions, extensive landscaping, permission for a bedroom to be built above a studio on the property, and a few new fireplaces.

Playing with their little on in the gardens will be something else for the couple to look forward to, as it is on private property and there will be no intrusion. 

Meghan is working with designers Vicky Charles and Julia Corden of Charles and Co. 

Charles worked as Soho House brand's head of design and worked previously on Soho Farmhouse's look, which is near Harry and Meghan's Cotswolds home, if you want to get some inspiration as to the look they are going for. 

We're sure Frogmore will be a home where the trio makes many happy family memories together.

We can all admit we’d love to live like a member of the royal family, especially after seeing Prince Harry and Meghan’s stunning Oxford home.

The first ever image of the property has been released by The Sun and we must admit we are hopelessly in love with the duo’s country pad. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved into the £2.5million farmhouse before their May wedding last year.

The property has four bedrooms, a large dining room, an outdoor seating area and even a two-bedroom cottage for Harry and Meghan’s staff.

The dream home is set in four acres of beautiful Oxfordshire land.

A friend of the royal couple told The Sun: “Meghan adores the area. She and Harry love walking the dogs there, and they can entertain their friends in complete solitude.”

“It’s a fabulous place with stunning views and extraordinarily private. It’s set in a small bowl of the beautiful countryside so is not overlooked in any way,” they added.

It is believed the parents-to-be will keep the cottage, even when they move into their new home in the coming weeks.

Kensington Palace confirmed that the parents-to-be are planning on moving early in the new year ahead of the arrival of their first child.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will move into Frogmore Cottage once refurbishments are complete. It is believed the house is undergoing a large transformation to ensure it is a suitable home for a family.

The 10 bedroom house will be turned into a lavish family home. It will feature a nursery and even has space for a yoga studio and a gym.

Frogmore Cottage is located in Windsor and holds a very special place in Harry and Meghan’s hearts.

She swapped the world of acting for the world of tiaras and palaces, but it looks like Meghan Markle may be returning to her old roots.

Rumour has it the former actress may be returning to drama series Suits for a special episode.

It is believed that show bosses want her to reprise her role as Rachel Zane for a mere few minutes in one episode.

If Meghan would return to the show she would receive a huge donation for a charity of her choice. The donation could be anywhere between £2 and £6 million, The Mirror claimed.

“No final figure has yet been arrived at but negotiations are likely to be opened in the very near future,” a source stated.

"I’ve heard sums ranging from two to six million being kicked around and that sounds a lot – but it would be one of the biggest marketing coups in TV history.”

It is believed NBC Universal is eager for the former actress to return and believe this mass charity donation could sway the Queen, who has to give Meghan her approval to do so.

The Duchess would film the special scene in England and it would only take approximitely two days, according to sources.

Surely Meghan could take a break from her royal duties for a handful of days and channel her inner Rachel Zane again.

We’ll be eager to see if Queen Elizabeth says no to this proposal. We’re sure she’ll find it hard especially with such a massive charity donation on offer.
