2022 in review with the British Royal Family
Queen Elizabeth's 70th anniversary. It's not everyday you get to celebrate a 70th anniversary. But that's what Queen Elizabeth II managed in her reign, and the royals had a big celebration in her honour.
It was a nice moment for the Queen and her family, and it would ultimately be a final goodbye of sorts for the monarch. And of course, William and Kate's youngest Prince Louis put on a good show.
William and Kate in the Caribbean. Kate and Prince William paid a headline-making visit to the Caribbean early in the year. And while there was fun to be had, and Kate's fashion impressed throughout...
The tour was also controversial. Certain moments were scrutinized, and the royals were met with protests and anti-monarchy sentiment.
The royal year after Queen Elizabeth's death
Charles becomes King. The royal world was completely shaken up when the Queen passed away in September 2022. She was 96 years old.
Her son ascended the throne as King Charles III, joined by his wife Camilla as his Queen Consort. With the change, Prince William became the heir to the throne, and he and Kate the new Prince and Princess of Wales.
The Queen's funeral. As you would expect, the loss of Queen Elizabeth brought the Royal Family together. Her funeral was held in late September.
The entire Royal Family was there to pay their respects to the long-serving monarch. Meghan and Prince Harry also came to the UK, and they even joined Kate and Prince William for a moment in memory of the Queen – a rare occurrence for the feuding brothers.
Harry and Meghan take Netflix. Speaking of Meghan and Harry, the couple was at it again in 2022. In December, they finally released their very own Netflix documentary...
Where they told their story in their own words. Not surprisingly, the highly personal Harry & Meghan sparked much debate – while also drawing in millions of viewers.
