Thank you for stopping by! This site is a combination of my two loves/talents: research and code. I decided to put my research out there on a website and learned to code in order to do it. There is always something fun and new to learn every day, which is why I love what I do.
My passion is to bring the history of the monarchy to my fellow Americans. I now intend to expand on my work to cover our historical ties with the UK as well as the religious faith of kings and queens. It will all be presented here among sparkling code (thanks also to Restored316 Designs for the basis).
I made my first trip to London in 2008, an amazing experience that I hope to repeat again and again!
The start of it all
Mandy’s interest in the monarchy began at age seventeen. Her grandmother’s stories, as well as genealogy research, led Mandy to her English roots and an interest in the country’s system of government.
From the ancient rituals to national debates, the monarchy was fast becoming a favorite topic in Mandy’s house. She discovered that the Royal Family was an incredible living representation of history and that the Queen is tirelessly dedicated to crown, country, and Commonwealth. In 1998, “Mandy’s British Royalty” was born to document Mandy’s research and her admiration for the Queen.
Mandy encourages a strong connection to Britain in general:
The house that is modern America was built on a British foundation. Our type of government, our laws … We need to remember our roots. If we lose touch with that, then we weaken the bond between two great nations.
