英国王室作为世界上知名度最高的王室家庭,最近又因Netflix最新一季的历史剧《王冠》引起了新一轮的关注。


王室中的核心人物——伊丽莎白二世女王不仅是英国的国家元首,也是加拿大、澳大利亚、新西兰等英联邦国家(名义上的)国家元首。可以说是中国留学生最多的几个国家都在她的“统治之下”~

今天小厚就来带小朋友们了解一下这个世界上最著名的家庭吧~

The Queen

Queen Elizabeth II is Head of State (国家元首) of the United Kingdom, Head of the Commonwealth (英联邦) and Supreme Governor of the Church of England.Her reign (统治) began on the 6th February 1952.

The Royal Family

以下皇室成员按继承顺序出场哦~

Prince of Wales

Charles, Prince of Wales, is the eldest (最年长的) son of Queen Elizabeth II and is heir (继承人) to the British throne. In fact, he has been heir to the throne since 1952 and is therefore the longest “heir” ever in British history!

Prince Charles was born in Buckingham Palace (白金汉宫). As a young man he went to Cambridge University (剑桥大学) before serving a tour of duty with the Royal Navy (海军).

In 1981 he married Lady Diana Spencer and they had two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. In 2005 he married Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Duke of Cambridge

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, is the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II and son of Prince Charles and Diana, and therefore is second in line to the British throne.

Prince William went to Eton and then on to St Andrew’s University, where he met his wife, Kate Middleton, whom he married in April 2011. After graduating he joined the military (军队), becoming a pilot (飞行员) and then getting his helicopter (直升飞机) wings too.

Prince William first went on a royal tour in 1983 at the tender age of 1, and he has been travelling with and for the royal family ever since, especially since turning 21, and is involved with many charities (慈善机构) and causes. He loves sport, playing polo (打马球), and is a keen (热衷的) football fan.

Prince George of Cambridge

Prince George was born on 22nd July 2013 to Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge. He is the third in line to the British throne and older brother to Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

王室规则

小朋友们有没有幻想过成为一名公主/王子,住宫殿,游世界,受敬仰呢?成为一名王室家庭的小孩,不仅需要超高的投胎技巧,从出生的一刹那,也要肩负起王室的责任、受王室规则的约束。

Rule No.1 They can’t call the Queen Grandma.

王室小孩不能称呼女王为“grandma”,或者“great-grandma”,但是可以称呼她为“granny”或者“Gan-gan”。

Rule No.2 They have to go through etiquette training.

王室小朋友必须接受礼仪训练 (etiquette training), 从吃饭到说话音量音调、鞠躬、屈膝都要熟练掌握。

Rule No.3 Two heirs can’t travel together.

除非女王允许,不然两个继承人是不能同时出游的。这是为了保证王室能够后继“有人”。

Rule No.4 Boys should wear shorts.

王室小男孩在出现在公众面前时,必须穿短裤(shorts),因为小男孩穿长裤被视为是“中产阶级行为”。

Rule No.5 And girls should wear dresses.

除此之外,不能收别人的礼物、不能玩“大富翁”,不能吃壳类海鲜… … 做一个Royal family child也是非常不容易的~
