It’s been quite the year for the royal family, with not one but two weddings, a new baby and another on the way in the new year.
The Queen proved she was as style savvy as the younger royals with a surprise appearance at the Richard Quinn catwalk show, joining US Vogue editor Anna Wintour in the front row duringLondon Fashion Week.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed a third addition to their family with the birth of Prince Louis in April. While glimpses of Louis have been rare, his older siblings George and Charlotte have stolen the show on more than one occasion. The young royals are practically pros at page boy and bridesmaid duties.
After announcing their engagement in November 2017, Prince Harry and former actress Meghan Markle tied the knot at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19, in a ceremony that was watched by an estimated 1.9 billion people around the world.
It was a star-studded affair and Meghan wowed in her wedding dress by Clare Waight Keller and an evening gown by Stella McCartney.
The pair have thrown themselves into their royal duties and charmed everyone they met during their royal tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand in October. The trip got off to an exciting start as the couple announced they’re expecting their first child next spring.
Princess Eugenie also married her long-term boyfriend Jack Brooksbank at the same venue as her cousin Harry on October 12, and her proud mother Sarah, Duchess of York, made her return to the fold.
Kate came back from maternity leave in October and looks more confident in her role than ever. As well as joining forces with William at several engagements, she’s proven that the Kate effect is still in force with her fashion choices.
The Prince of Wales celebrated his 70th birthday in November and there were plenty of family and public occasions to mark his milestone.
And then of course, the Queen was joined by the rest of the royals to celebrate Christmas at Sandringham.
