Royalty Meme ♛ [1/5] Books
The Royal Diaries series

The Royal Diaries, an offshoot of Scholastic’s Dear America series, consisted of twenty books published between 1999 and 2005; each book was a fictionalized diary or journal written by the title character—generally a royal or noblewoman between twelve and sixteen. Taken as a whole, the Diaries spanned more than 1500 years and nearly every continent. They are particularly notable for their beautiful covers, though the 2013 re-launch of the series has replaced it with new artwork. A full list of books can be found here.

[6/7] Royal Kids - Prince John

The great thing about John, before the epilepsy really bit in was, he was a very naughty boy. He was called the imp, and he loved practical jokes. He put glue on door handles, he put pins on seats.

He once famously referred to his father as “Ugly old man.” On another occasion he used his sister Mary’s paint box to make himself up like a red Indian and ran whooping into the dining room where his parents were entertaining.
