The flavour text and title hint at 1000 Words, therefore we have to use its manual to solve this puzzle.
The first line is an example. Looking up the four words in 1000 Words' table, they form a square. In fact, each letter represents a movement from one cell in the grid to another, where A, B, C and D represent up, right, down and left respectively.
By starting with the word ROYAL and moving around the grid according to the instructions given, we get the answer to the puzzle.
