A BIG thank you to Hester for reminding us of our birthday Champagne
I know there are a few threads here and there, but let's make this one the official one, if that's okay with you all Smiley

10 years ago in these very hours Thomas were doing the last changes to the set up of what we thought would be a small forum for those of us left behind in the big Royal Blue closing bang. And here we are, 10 years later with a no longer small forum, losts of poster come and gone and some epic moments of dishing gone down through the time. Considering how silly some of the royals out there act, I dare say there will always be something to dish about so in the light, the future looks bright Champagne

It's very flattering to read all the cheering and thank you's - truly I feel this board is nothing but the posters though Smiley There are many we could wish to thank - some are still here, some are sadly not. Everyone who posts here and does so in the RD way - I feel most of us knows what that means? - are worthy of a thank you though so: Thank you ALL for posting here, we hope you will continue to do so for as long as we can keep it up Champagne

Thank you, Maria and Thomas, for the good times, the times that tested us, and the times that made us better.  I remember the RB debacle and the birth of RD and am grateful to all who make this board such an amazing community.

Hey, this is a birthday and reminiscence thread, can we have some war stories from the old timers? As a newbie I sometimes wonder what it must have been like in the wild, wild west of RD history

I remember getting the invite to join RD, most of us were still posting on Royal Blue. The site has slowed down in the last few years but I believe it is due to the gap years that we are in right now. The crown couples are in their 40s and their children aren't old enough to be dished about. As for the memories, I guess the first big one on this site was Isabella's birth but I still have my favourite moments

1. Vic and Dan's wedding was the most outstanding dishing, 3 full days of dishing.
2. 2008 Olympics in China and the Australian visit that followed.
3. Sometimes over looked, Italy and Croatian trip in 2009 Mary in a bikini and without makeup.

Well it was Galuh and her Mary / Michael Jackson lookalike pic that got me hooked. I remember it was a wet Sunday ( what's new in Ireland ) had me laughing like a hyena on speed . That made me join 😂

We're raining Danish colors!  Jumping   Just don't let NQM hear it. Otherwise, she may try to barge in.... Secret

I was on RB and when it went down, I got an invite to join RD. I looked into it. It's a sleepy small forum with few posts. So I wondered in the sugarlandwild for a few years before finally joining RD. There are many memorable dishing moments. F&M have given us so many materials. W&K, H&MM, CP&S, Spanish Enthusiasts.... The happiest dishing moment for me has to be JC's abdication and Felipe's proclamation.

Congrats to Thomas, Maria and all the dishers who have made this place it is today from the humble beginning. Many years more!  Champagne
