23. Wimbledon Championships, July 2019

22. Commonwealth Day Youth Event, March 2019

Princess Diana was known for getting down to the level of the person she was speaking with, especially when it came to children! This is a practice that Meghan Markle has also adopted and she was photographed in March kneeling down to speak to a little girl at eye level. The moment was precious and luckily captured by a photographer.

Prince William attended Centrepoint’s 50th-anniversary gala in 2019 having one of his most stylish moments yet.

This special moment of Kate Middleton and Prince William on tour in Pakistan definitely caught the eye of many! It’s refreshing to see how humble and down-to-earth this couple is by wearing plastic crowns and drinking pretend tea to make a child smile at the cancer research hospital.

13. Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation, September 2019

Another precious royal moment this year is when Meghan and Harry brought Archie out with them while visiting the Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation in South Africa! Before this, we had hardly seen much of the royal baby so it was nice to be able to see his face and his red hair, just like his father’s. The family of three looked happier than ever.


12. Army Canine Centre Pakistan, October 2019

Kate and William’s love for animals certainly shined while they visited the Army Canine Centre in Pakistan in October 2019. The royal duo were all smiles as they played and petted the dogs!
