The Royal Family's most magical moments from 2019

What a year it’s been for the Royal Family!


The past year has been a big one for Britain’s ever expanding Royal family. While many extended family members are expected to receive the chop from royal roles in a bid to concise the family and legitimise its relevance in modern day society, the younger family members powered on, and gifted us with many beautiful and memorable moments. Here are this year’s top picks:

1. Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan joined Instagram

When the couple set up a joint Instagram account, they garnered a record-breaking 1,000,000 followers in just 45 minutes. This has since been eclipsed by Jennifer Aniston, who shattered this record in a significantly smaller time.

8. Princess Beatrice’s engagement

Admittedly, this one caused quite a stir at first since news emerged that he had abandoned his previous partner and child for a more favourable match, but it only took one photo for the world to be convinced of his good intentions. The photo was taken by Princess Beatrice’s sister, Princess Eugenie.
