  Royal family - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A royal family is the extended family of a monarch.
The term "imperial family" more appropriately describes the extended family of an emperor or empress regnant, while the terms "ducal family", "grand ducal family" or "princely family" are more appropriate in reference to the relatives of a reigning duke, grand duke, or prince.
A royal family typically includes the spouse of the reigning monarch, any or all surviving spouses of a deceased monarch, the children, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, and cousins of the reigning monarch, as well as their spouses.
