22 Royal Party Games for Your Jubilee Party

If you have a Jubilee street party planned for the upcoming Platinum Jubilee, or you are looking for some royal themed party games for your family gathering – We have some fun ideas to share.

These royal party games are suitable for all the family, you can pick and choose or adapt them to the age groups you have at your party.

Royal Guess Who?

Both players start with a board each, filled with royal family members face-up, and select a mystery character card, of which only they can see.

Players take turns asking yes or no questions in order to guess which mystery card their opponent has, for example, did they marry a royal?

Are they wearing glasses? Do they have children? Those that do not apply are flipped face-down, leaving the remaining characters face-up.

Once a player thinks they know which card their opponent has, they have one chance to guess who it is. If a player guesses the card incorrectly, they lose.

Ibble Dibble

This game is as seen in the royal Netflix show The Crown. It’s typically a drinking game, but if there are children, the rule can be changed so that players perform a forfeit instead of drinking.

Players form a circle and are assigned a number. Players are known as “ibble-dibble”, followed by their number.

Traditionally a bottle cork is blackened, but a marker or face paint can also be used to make a mark on the player, known as a “dibble-ibble”. 

The rules are simple, whoever’s turn it is must identify themselves by their number, for example, saying the number of black marks on their face, before calling on the next player of choice, identified by their assigned number, followed by how many marks are on their face.

For example the first round would go something like: “Number one ibble-dibble with no dibble-ibbles calling number five ibble-dibble with no dibble-ibbles.”

Player number five would go next. Players that hesitate or mess up the sentence must apply a black mark to their face and drink (or perform a forfeit). The longer the game goes on, the harder it gets! The winner is the player with the least amount of marks at the end.

Charades

Parlour games have been a tradition of the royal family since Queen Victoria’s era, and the Queen is known to love a game of charades.

Players write down a film, book, song, play, TV show, or phrase which are then put into a hat.

Players are split into two teams and individually, players take an item from the hat, which must then be acted out silently for their team to guess.

The player who is trying to act can use hand signals and miming to try and lead their team to the answer.

Royal Rules

Deal a deck of cards out equally to players; whoever has a Queen card gets to make a rule that all the guests must follow for the day. Any rule-breakers must take a drink or do a forfeit.

Football

As the country’s favourite sport, football has a long history associated with England, and the royal family are reportedly fans of the game too.

Playing a game of football is a fun way to get everyone involved in the street party, and keep the kids active too.

The Queen had apparently revealed to Buckingham Palace staff that her favourite team is West Ham.

Prince Charles once shared his support for Burnley. Prince William has been President of the Football Association (FA) since 2006 and has supported Aston Villa since age 11.

Kate is allegedly a Chelsea supporter, according to an eight-year-old fan who revealed the information after speaking with the Duchess of Cambridge.

Prince George has also been spotted cheering enthusiastically at football matches with his parents and playing for his school team.

The royal family hosts an annual football match at Sandringham against household staff. Families organising a kickabout over the jubilee weekend can do so with the royal seal of approval.

Monopoly

It is known that the royal family used to enjoy playing a game of monopoly, before the Queen banned it from being played at family events after it got out of hand.

Just because the game is now banned from royal functions, it doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy playing, if you are still on speaking terms after the last time you played.

Who Am I?

Each player sticks a post it note to their head, with the name of a member of the royal family.

Each player must ask yes or no questions until you can work out who they are.

Royal bake-off

Wacky royal portrait

Dial up the creativity with an unconventional royal portrait. Starting with a blank piece of paper, players have five minutes to collect unconventional materials found in the house/garden.

Without using pens and pencils, create a royal portrait fit for a Queen.

Castle building

Enough to bring the inner child out of any adult, and a great way of having fun with the kids while engaging their creative side.

Build a castle hideout using items around the home (blankets, cardboard boxes, chairs etc.), and enjoy your own DIY royal residence.

Pass The Crown

A royal twist on pass the parcel, you could wrap a parcel up in the shape of a crown, or just use a crown and whoever is holding it when the music stops will get a prize.

Keeping the contents gender neutral and kid-friendly is helpful in these scenarios, with edible treats being an easy and popular option.

Royal Quiz

Put together some questions about the royals, simpler for the kids and maybe some tricky ones for the grown ups.

Royal Treasure Hunt

Hide some jewels, or some plastic crowns around the garden and let the kids have fun finding and collecting all of them. If you want to use clues, just adapt some of our Easter egg hunt clues to give it a royal twist.

Sleeping Corgis

This game is played just like sleeping lions.

One person is the hunter and walks through the room trying to make everyone laugh. The first person to make a sound is out.

Musical Thrones

Just like musical chairs, when the music stops you need to quickly sit on a chair (throne) but there will be one less chair than the amount of people playing so whoever doesn’t get one is out.

This royal twist on musical chairs involves turning one chair – the final chair – into a throne, that the eventual winner can sit on and celebrate their royal glory and be crowned king or queen of the party.
