I don't think just Westminster should be accepted for the coronation question - Westminster Abbey is not the same as Westminster Cathedral, or the Palace of Westminster.

Or, for that matter, Westminster Bridge. haha

I agree, how absurd: the coronation took place in a building somewhere in Westminster! I still have not learnt to touch-type, so I had to delete " abbey" from my next answer.

Can I suggest accepting Saxe-Coburg for the dynasty question? I know it was officially changed to Windsor but technically that is the dynasty they originally belonged to.

No because it would be 'Saxe-Coburg and Gotha' anyway, and it was changed so it's no longer recognised as that...

Isn't it Saxe-Anhalt and Gotha?

Prince Albert sounded too German so his name was changed to Prince George, his close family and friends still called him 'Bertie' though.

On the grounds of decency, it may be pertinent to replace the question about Epstein's friend with someone else.

Or perhaps a question asking which royal has connections with Epstein...

Can you please adjust the question about "Kate Middleton's sister" to use her proper title. She stopped being a Middleton at her wedding and her proper title is "Catherine Princess of Wales".

Thanks for a great quiz

Suggestion to change the question about Andrew to "Which Royal discovered they couldn't sweat at a Pizza Express in Woking?"

Oh the grand old Duke of York

He had 12 million quid

He gave them all to someone he never met

Over something he never did

Maybe accept "Prince of Wales"? Not sure why "Prince of" is even given, as the question is very easy even without it.

I think it may be wise to remove Andrew from this quiz...
