'royal family gets going outside university' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this defines the answer.

'gets going outside university' is the wordplay.
'gets going' becomes 'starts' ('start' can be a synonym of 'get going').
'outside' indicates putting letters inside.
'university' becomes 'u' (abbreviation for university).
'starts' enclosing 'u' is 'STUARTS'.
