Some of my go-to titles include HELLO! Canada and People for the everyday lives of kings, queens, princes, and princesses, along with Vanity Fair and Harper’s Bazaar for more in-depth stories on the lives of royals past and present.
Add in the fact that Next Issue also offers access to special editions about royalty, and you’ve got a treasure trove on your hands. Here are my eight favorite articles about royalty currently available in the Next Issue app, both in recent issues and back issues.
