    The revealer is on point, I like how you included even the non-royal cards JACK and ACE in "royal" themers, so to speak. Great clues for ADAM
    68A ADAMFirst in the race?
    , UNIONJACK
    51A UNIONJACK*Low-altitude flyer, September 2022?
    , and LEG
    59D LEGOne half of a steep price?
    (which I got quickly because it's how I clued LEG
    59D LEGOne half of a steep price?
    and ARM in a recent puzzle of mine, coincidentally). I would change the clues for ANNUAL
    50D ANNUALEvery 12 months
    and ARTDECO
    26D ARTDECO1920's architecture craze
    since they include part of the answers.
    • Nice revealer!
