With so much attention being given to the British Royal Family, you’d be forgiven for forgetting that plenty of other countries around the world are kingdoms run by royal families too!
Here’s what some royal families look like around the world!
1. The Chakri dynasty
This is the current ruling house of Thailand, with king Maha Vajiralongkorn taking the throne.
2. The Netherlands
King Willem-Alexander and his wife Queen Maxima with their three daughters.
Had I not known that they were The Netherlands’ royal family, I never would have guessed! They look like a totally normal family!
3. The king of Cambodia
Norodom Sihamoni is his name.
4. Spanish royal family
King Felipe VI, Queen Letizia and their two daughters.
5. The House of Dlaminiis
This is the current royal family of Swaziland, led by king Mswati III. I love how casual he seems about it all.
6. The Imperial House of Japan
Emperor Akihito is currently on the throne, but is set to abdicate in 2018 in favor of his eldest son, Crown Prince Naruhito.
7. Grand Ducal Family of Luxembourg
Currently led by Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg.
8. Zulu royal family
This family consists of the monarch of the Zulus of South Africa, King Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu.
9. The Monarchy of Denmark
One of the oldest in Denmark, currently ‘piloted’ by Queen Margrethe II.
