Royal Family

A royal family is the extended family of a king or queen regnant. the term imperial family appropriately describes the extended family of an emperor or empress, while the terms "ducal family", "grand ducal family" or "princely family" are more appropriate to describe the relatives of a reigning duke, grand duke, or prince. however, in common parlance members of any family which reigns by hereditary right are often referred to as royalty or "royals".
