The Royal Diaries, one recently discovered, is a series of children's books which tell world history through the eyes of a female child royal - these included Anastasia of Russia and Sondok of Korea. Here at IBTimes UK we stick to the Brits, and away from the fictionalising, with our royal diaries.
What are they doing, when and where. As ever, check back for updates.

Up in Scotland's second city, The Princess Royal, starts the week with an opening - Association of Chartered Certified Accountants Global Operations Centre in Glasgow, to be exact.

She will then be attending a briefing as Colonel-in-Chief before a reception and lunch at the Officers' Mess.
Will and Kate, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, are hanging out with the kids during Place2Be's Big Assembly at London's Mitchell Brook Primary School.

Possibly with less minor child stars, they will also be attending the Guild of Health Writers Conference at Chandos House in London.
