Originally released in the early-mid 1960s, Filmotype developed and released Royal as one of its earliest Transitional Serif typefaces inspired by lettering used on steam-era passenger train coaches.

Inspired by Royal's aesthetic, type designer Charles Gibbons expanded and developed a full range of styles based on exploring a variety of useful width variations. While it had been Filmotype's practice to generate width variant typefaces using camera stretching techniques, Gibbons instead mastered each alphabet at its native width to create exceptional typesetting throughout the family.

The Filmotype Royal typeface was developed from the original font filmstrips and each additional weight was created as an inspired original, each Royal family member includes a full international character complement, automatic fractionals, ordinals, and a host of alternate characters in dynamic OpenType format.
