Ratings and Reviews
Prince Charles info is not all correct!
Great app but under Prince Charles it says that his and Diana’s divorce was the same year that they separated. That’s not true or correct, their divorce was not final until 1996! Thus also making your claim that she died in 1993 and she passed in 1997!
Great but with missing much important info
Would love to give this 5 stars because the existing content is well-done and informative. However, the Pre-Conquest Kings are nonexistent, how you could you leave out all that history?!! There’s even a tab for it but when clicked the page just says “null”. Incredibly disappointing!
Can you add more on the family tree of Queen Victoria children’s children
