As the new year gets underway, many of us are taking time to reflect on the last 12 months – and the Royal Family are no exception.
Kensington Palace has released a touching highlights clip revisiting some of the milestones celebrated by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry in 2017.
The slideshow includes photos of four-year-old Prince George’s first day of school, two-year-old Princess Charlotte’s first posey and Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle’s engagement announcement in November.
But eagle-eyed royal supporters noted that there was one important royal moment that was missed from the collection: the news that William and Kate are expecting their third child together in April next year.
