“Watching you become who you are has been the greatest privilege of my whole life, Sarah.”

I'm not crying, there's something in my eye.

Leave it to Emma Chase to trigger your warm and fuzzy version in only a few pages. I love Henry and Sarah. And I love this series. Now give me Royally Endowed, please.

About 20 years after the events of Royally Matched, King Henry is really worried about his eldest daughter and future Queen of his little Kingdom.

Princess Jane is well... very proud to be her.
She is spoiled, born blessed and sometimes very rude to her future subjects. It is Henry's job to advice her and make her understand that there are less fortunate people than her and she has to be more understanding.

Queen Sarah is still the best thing that happened to Henry. Both are extremely in love wi

“Watching you become who you are has been the greatest privilege of my whole life.”

Oh, wow. Even after how many years, Prince Henry and Sarah still couldn't get any cuter!


This short story takes place in the future. Our royally loved couple from Royally Matched are now having kids of their own and living their happily ever after.

I simply loved how Henry and Sarah stayed true to their love and commitment to each other and to their country. In this novel we get to have a glimp

A short novella, set in the future. You'll get to meet Henry's kids. It's fun and I very much enjoyed it. :) Can't be read as a standalone, you would need to read the first two books or at least book #2 first.

Nice to see you again, Pembrooks!

Oh man, this was a lovely treat. Thank you, Emma, for giving us a snippet of their lives in the future. It's short and makes me want more more more, but it was beautiful. Love is still definitely in the air.

This was a lot shorter than I anticipated! It was a wonderful look twenty years into the future of our favourite royals.. I enjoyed the glimpse into mainly Sarah and Henry's lives with their children. We get introduced to Henry's oldest daughter who is 19... but the story line that developed involving her literally amounted to nothing. Everything seemed to just stop. So now I'm sitting here scratching my head!! This short story felt more like an epilogue more than anything else!

Still though, I d

A cute and short novella that takes place 20 years after Royally Matched. It's a snapshot of Henry and Sarah's lives, with their children in the future. It cannot be read as a standalone, but you can read book 2 (Royally Matched) as a standalone without having to read book 1 (but book 1 is amazing so you should read it anyways).

Basically this short story is a nice little gift from the author to her fans. Thanks Emma!

Please Emma, I want more...

I really enjoyed this little trip back to the castle. It was great to catch up with the King and Queen to find out how their relationship continued and prospered. Lots of kids to keep them on their toes.

4 'King and Queen' Stars!

A lovely short story focused on Henry and Sarah's life together (with their family and children) after twenty years. It was funny, adorable and oh-so-romantic!

3.5 - 4 ★'s

Short (17 pages), sweet little update on what's going on in Henry and Sarah's life some twenty plus years after their book, Royally Matched.

Most of it focuses on Henry's heir, Jane, and her attitude. I loved that Henry was a bit taken back and not surprised all the same. I also loved how he went to Sarah to discuss it and decide how to handle her.

It was great getting updates on his as well as Nicolas' family.

I’m loving the Royally series! Royally Raised gives us a look in the King’s far future and lets us meet his children. I liked this very short story a lot, but I wanted and needed more!

Before you raise your pitchforks, let me say a couple things. Royally Screwed and Royally Matched have been two highlights of my year so far. Henry and Sara are one of my all time favorite couples Love them.

Now, when I found about Royally Raised, first of all, I thought it was gonna be a novella. Which is not. It's a short story. Secondly, I had envisioned something with a beginning, something happening in the middle, and then some sort of resolution.

Mind you, I enjoyed seeing Henry and Sara a c

Loved it and hated it.
Loved getting to see more Henry and Sarah, they're still going strong and just as in love as they were in Royally Matched. Their kids (5 of them!) I need more on and their Heir Princess Jane... wow she's a piece of work that girl but I'm sensing an upcoming book for her!!!
Loved it.
Hated that it was so short! I'm greedy and want more.

This only served to make me more impatient for the next book!

I love when authors give their readers a glimpse into the future of their beloved characters!

Royally Raised is the perfect little morsel readers needed to keep them craving for more until Royally Endowed releases. I only hope we get a future book about Jane, and her journey to becoming the next queen of Wessco.

This review may contain SPOILERS!
The second time I read this I realized that it was pretty short, and even though I always love to read more about Sarah and Henry and their adorable family, I actually thought there could've been a little more content to this than the two chapters we got. Nonetheless, I tought that the chapters we got were pretty great. Sarah and Henry are such a cute couple and even though we see that they spoil their kids rotten, I still think that Jane may become a great queen

Amazing little addition to the Royally series!
I love it when an author takes us into the future with old and beloved characters!
King Henry and his Sarah and their five kids! And one-day-queen Jane. She's a handful!!! I loved it. Karma is a bitch Henry - would grandma queen say! ☺
I hope we'll get to hear her story one day!

"3 Royally Stars"

This was a nice short story about Nicolas and Henry and what the future was for them and their families. It was sweet and nice but I would like some of Nicolas pov too. It was a short novella but what about Nicolas and Olivia's family? I enjoyed it but it was too short and I wanted some more of their "Royal Highness"!

Can't wait for "Royally Endowed"!!!

I know this is a novella, but come on! It ended in 57% and it moved so fast. It definitely makes me curious and intrigued to read more about these royals.. Henry is my favourite, so I certainly appreciated this glimpse into their future , I just wish it was... More!!
4 Sweet Stars

If you’re a fan of these books you’ll definitely like this short story. It happens after Henry is King and when all of the characters you came to love are living their responsible adult lives, it’s time for their kids to do the same mistakes they did… which Henry now realizes includes his oldest daughter and heir to the throne.
In short, a sweet and quick novella that it’s surely a nice bonus for the fans of these books.


Rating: 4 Stars.

A cute (but short) look at Henry and Sarah some two decades after their HEA. Liked it but it felt like it was more of a build up to their oldest kid’s possible story. From the little we get of Jane, I didnt really like her much 😑

This is more than what I expected when Emma said she would post a short story in the future. It's better than what I dreamt for Henry and Sarah, they are really the perfect couple, King and Queen! <3
I am also happy to see a little of Olivia and Nicholas <3
I wish for more of this future #agirlcandream

“You’re making a big deal out of nothing, Dad.”

I point at her. “The fact that you think so is exactly what concerns me.”

“The people will have no other side to be on, but mine. When I’m Queen, they’ll like it or as far as I’m concerned, they can piss the hell off.”

Wow. Holy shit—wow.
