Our Editor's Take

Royally Obsessed is for fans of the British royal family who want to stay updated about the famous family. The podcast provides weekly updates on royal need-to-know news and events. It has chronicled the happy and sad times of the British royals since its 2018 debut. Show topics range from the Sussexes' wedding to Queen Elizabeth II's funeral. Two writers from the PureWow lifestyle site host the show.

Podcast hosts Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie present an entertaining show. Their conversations exude humor, drama, and deep knowledge of the royal family. The pair bring their writing experience to Royally Obsessed. From their discussions, it's easy to see they've been writing about the royals for a while. The PureWow writers have a great rapport, unforced humor, and display genuine empathy. Before Roberta and Rachel, Lisa Ryan and Kaitlin Menza hosted and ran the podcast.

The hosts chat with a wide range of special guests. Their guest list includes royal historians, biographers, and photographers. Fellow writers, authors, and entertainment pundits are also invitees on the podcast. They discuss Queen Elizabeth II, King Charles III, Princess Diana, and her sons, Harry and William. Listeners can expect to hear about past and present royal family members.

The Daily Beast writer Clive Irving visits Rachel and Roberta in one episode. The three examine the relationship between Prince William and Prince Harry. Irving offers his unique insight on the "containment" of William versus Harry's "freedom." He also shares his thoughts on Harry's tell-all book, Spare. Harry's wife Meghan Markle also gets analyzed here.

Royally Obsessed lives up to its name. It's all royalty all the time on the show. There are no dull moments or unnecessary tangents on the podcast. In a manner of speaking, it's earned its crown. New episodes come out weekly.
