Our decision to speak in the royal third person

Our mom's cousin has embarked on genealogical research that has traced the ancestry of our American grandmother to ELIZABETH WOODVILLE (1437-1492), the first commoner to marry a King of England.
Originally married to SIR JOHN GREY OF GROBY, Woodville married KING EDWARD IV following Grey's death in the SECOND BATTLE OF ST. ALBANS.
American Civil War veteran and Oregon newspaper publisher JAMES HARRISON ALDRICH was a direct descendent, and he is our great-great grandfather.
That explains our 2013 decision to exclusively speak in the royal third person!
