The Tudor Society

Claire becomes a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society

I just have to share this news with you lords and ladies because I know how excited and happy you will be for me. This morning, I received an email from The Royal Historical Society and I've been going from jumping up and down in excitement, or bursting into tears of joy, ever since.

The email was to let me known that I've been elected as a Fellow of the Society in recognition of my "contribution to historical scholarship". This means so much to me. I am so honoured and so very happy. The Royal Historical Society, if you don't know, do wonderful work in supporting historians and promoting historical scholarship - see

A huge thank you to the Royal Historical Society and their members, those historians and authors who have supported me on my historical journey, and you Tudor Society members for allowing me to share my work with you and for always giving me such valuable feedback. It really means the world to me and I appreciate you all.

Thank you!
