The British Royal Family is either a potent symbol of national pride or a harmful anachronism, depending on which sources you listen to. The House of Windsor enjoys widespread popularity in the UK and many of its commonwealth realms, and yet a majority of young Britons express a desire to leave the monarchy behind.

In this episode of The List Show, Erin (@erinccmarthy) flies through 100 fun facts about the British royal family, from truck-driving queens to scandal-plagued Kings (did someone mention a "love chair"?).

In case you forgot, The List Show is a trivia-tastic, fact-filled show for curious people. Subscribe here for new Mental Floss episodes every Wednesday: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpZ5qUqpW4hW4zdfuBxMSJA?sub_confirmation=1
