A Royal Wedding Quiz

Tonight we have the AGM of our Friends and Neighbours Group. We always follow business with pleasure – namely a buffet supper and quiz. I’ve prepared a short quiz, based on a ‘Royal’ Theme. Most of our members are aged 50+, so I have included some questions on royal events of a previous generation.

How many of these do you know? I’ll provide an answer sheet in a couple of days time. Please feel free to use this quiz if you need to entertain a group of friends!

  1. The answer to No. 17 is.... 'cannot imagine that the hats were actually designed by anyone....except maybe Blue Peter?'

    I had Crawfie's book a long time ago. I think it was called 'The little princesses'.

  2. #14 do not understand why the Canadian lady is called "Autumn" not "Fall"!
