The rue Royale (French pronunciation: ​) is a short street in Paris, France running between the place de la Concorde and the place de la Madeleine (site of the Church of the Madeleine). Among the well-known addresses on this street is that of Maxim's restaurant, at number 3.

On 12 August 1843, the Rue Royale was the scene for a bizarre phenomenon, when tens of thousands of butterflies landed, causing chaos and swarming the shops and restaurants. The pillars of the Madeleine were, reportedly, "covered". Source: The Illustrated London News, 19 August 1843.

The rue Royale is in the city's 8th arrondissement.

There is also a Rue Royale in Brussels, Belgium, near the Royal Palace.
