About This Quiz

The Brits love their royals and the whole world knows it. They're sticklers for tradition, which is why they love the official titles of their royalty. While you may think Harry is a prince, which he is, he is also a duke. But do you know of where? Well, we want to test that very knowledge right now. 

For years we have watched the royal family grow, not only to include once-outsiders like Kate and Meghan, but also to include children like George and Charlotte. We have watched queens age and die and new powers come into play. But do you know what these people are officially called? 

Now don't forget that some of these people have many titles. For example, not only was Victoria the Queen of England and Great Britain, she was also appointed the Empress of India. So don't worry that all the titles won't be shown. We just want you to pick the correct one out of the four options we're going to give you. 

So, if you think that you've got what it takes to ace this British royalty quiz, go ahead and get started. Will you know enough to work in the queen's court, or should you stick to knowing the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland?
