Princesses Estelle and Athena officially welcomed into the royal world.
seeing the royals lose their...ish. Just every once in a while.
sparkly celebration in January. Also, anything celebrating the awesomeness of Daisy is, well, awesome.
wedding in Luxembourg wasn't going to make a good showing on the awesome list.
QEII's Diamond Jubilee was that it just kept going. Trips and visits for the entire royal family throughout the year, a chunk of celebrations in May (including one massive gathering of sovereigns) plus a bigger chunk in June. Even unrelated events like the Olympics somehow ended up a lovefest for Lilibet and her 60 whopping years of queenly service. (I got in the spirit too, starting a new blog for Her Majesty and her baubles.) The most awesome thing in my years of royal watching, to be sure.
What was your favorite royal thing this year?
Programming note: We'll meet up to chat about royal Christmas outfits, but apart from that the blog is on hiatus next week. Happy holidays!
