Or perhaps everyone just finished the latest series of The Crown.
But this month I've been inundated with collectors looking for Royal memorabilia.
I wrote to you last week about a Charles and Diana signed Christmas card...
And it sold within an hour. (I'm down to my last one in stock already!).
But it's not just the modern Royals that collectors want.
The demand for Queen Victoria's signature has shot up as well.
Which was a problem, because I didn't have any. They're not easy to find.
But luckily for you, I've just managed to source one.
And even better - it's a beautiful signed photograph.
This antique photograph arrived on my desk this week.
And as soon as I took it out of the envelope, I was captivated.
It's over 140 years old. Signed and dated by Queen Victoria herself in 1880.
The condition is excellent for such a delicate piece.
The sepia portrait is wonderful, and the crisp signature is sublime.
It's a genuine thrill to hold something so rare in your hands.
And I have to be honest – I was really tempted to hang onto it myself. (I always want to keep the best pieces.)
But I'm a dealer first and foremost.
So instead I'm going to offer it to you at an exceptional price.
Here's why you should buy it.
Victoria's influence on the modern world is immeasurable.
During her 63-year reign she transformed the monarchy and redefined what it meant to be Queen.
She was immensely popular, particularly during the later years of her reign, and forged a close bond between the British people and the Royal family.
She became an iconic figurehead as Britain grew into the most powerful nation on Earth.
At its peak, she ruled over an Empire covering a quarter of the globe with 400 million subjects.
In short, Queen Victoria is simply one of the most important figures in world history.
She belongs in every collection.
Even during her lifetime, her memorabilia was hugely sought-after.
Portrait cards like this, featuring an image by photographer A.J Melhuish, were marketed by the Royals themselves and widely collected.
The card itself measures 6 1/2" by 4 1/4" (16.6cm by 10.8cm), and has been signed and dated by Queen Victoria in black ink.
The signature itself is crisp and bold, with partial smudging to the date (likely by the Queen herself when she wrote it).
This rare signed photograph would have been treasured by whoever owned it 140 years ago.
And the condition shows it's been carefully looked after by several generations.
That's the beauty of a signed photograph such as this.
It's a real heirloom piece.
You can display it proudly in your collection for years to come.
And then pass it down to your family, with the knowledge you're handing them a historic artefact of real value.
On the other hand...
A signed Queen Victoria photo of this quality will always be in demand.
If you do decide to sell in a few years' time, you won't find a shortage of buyers.
So that's pleasure of ownership. Peace of mind. And a potential profit.
All for the price of just £4,995 ($7,510).
