About Chrissie Reeves
Chrissie Reeves’s life is fascinating and madly busy. The mother of three, she spends her week coordinating weddings and location shoots at The West Mill whilst still maintaining her writing and broadcasting careers. During her time at OK Chrissie reported on the Oscars, the Cannes Film Festival, the BAFTAs, Paris Fashion Week with Jean Paul Gaultier, Royal Ascot and when Prince William and Catherine married on 11 April 2011, she covered the wedding. This secured her role as Royal Editor and a firm place within the infamous ‘royal press pack.’
Chrissie Reeves knew she wanted to write from a very early age and embarked on her career in journalism at the age of 18 when she was asked to join Vogue magazine whilst attending Lucie Clayton College in South Kensington.

Chrissie’s first royal tour was with the Prince and Princess of Wales on their landmark trip to Australia and New Zealand in 2014 and she swiftly found herself attending weekly engagements with the couple. She also reported on the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in 2017.
