Hallowe'en Banner

Royal history is peppered with drama and intrigue, containing more than its fair share of tragic ends and tumultuous traumas so it’s perhaps no surprise that there are plenty of ghost tales to go with it. From haunted historic homes to kings, queens, princes and princess who are said to return to palaces they once ruled, every dynasty has a dire ditty or three to tell.

As Hallowe’en approaches we’ll be sharing some of the most intriguing royal ghost stories of them all, here on Royal Central. Monarchs who saw ghosts of those who ruled before them, discarded queens returning to the scenes of their sadness and unexplained goings on that have fascinated generations are all featured. We’ll look at the scary stories associated with your favourite royal homes and some of the most famous royals in history over the next few days.
