Hear Ye, Hear Ye! The Royalty on Film Blogathon has finally arrived!
First off, I want to say congratulations to HM Queen Elizabeth II on both her 90th birthday and her anniversary of 63 years on the throne. Both are wonderful milestones that not all monarchs achieve during their reign. LONG LIVE THE QUEEN
Secondly, and most importantly, I want to say thank you to all you– the participants- who took part in making this event happen. I’m overwhelmed by the responses and I am looking forward to reading all of your entries-whether it be about one of my favorites or a film that’s “new to me” – I’m excited to read about what you’ve watched!
Lastly, I’m just so grateful that this idea caught a lot of attention. It started as just my simple idea of combining my two great loves- film and royalty. I’m so glad to know that it’s not just me who think these two work well together!!!
NOTE- If your banner isn’t showing up, I apologize as there was a slight glitch- I re uploaded them and you can now put them properly on your blogs click here for the original announcement posting so you can re-post them! Again Sorry for that!!!!
I will get round to reading ALL of your posts- it just will take a few days- But Expect my personal comments on every single one!!!!! (Just give me time 🙂 )
JUNE 4 2016- Guys I’ve loved every minute of reading and receiving all of your posts- I’m loving what I’ve seen so far- and am still not done as I still have to write my other post and also read some other entries!
