The Royale themes are new themes for Windows XP that have been leaked out of Microsoft. The theme appears to have come out of a beta version of Windows Media Center 2005 that was in testing. The Royale themes are aesthetic themes and comes with two color schemes Royale (a blue theme) and Royale Noir (a black theme). The Royale theme is refreshingly different to the traditional Windows XP Luna theme.

Just download the theme and extract the .zip into “C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\”, open the folder Royale Noir (“C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Royale Noir\”) and doubleclick the “luna.msstyles”. Select “Royale” or “Royale Noir” from color scheme.
