Real talk: Royals are fascinating. Exhibit A is the entire Windsor clan, from Diana to Harry to Kate to Meghan to William and everyone in between (oddly no one seems fascinated by Anne, but there’s still time). Royal romance stories are no less captivating. But LGBTQ+ royal romances haven’t gotten much time in the spotlight. Here are five stories that will hopefully change that.
All of the below can be found on Radish, a reading app filled with all different types of romance stories. You can download the app from the iOS or Google Play store if you don’t already have it.
