It’s been a banner year for the Royal Family, and we’re only just into August!
So far this year, we’ve seen Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry travel to Morocco while Meghan was pregnant with Archie Harrison, whose birth in May was the most highly-anticipated royal event of 2019 by far.
All three of the Cambridge children have celebrated their birthdays, which were marked with some excellent portraits by Duchess Kate. We’ve also had plenty of opportunities to see Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis show off their personalities, from Trooping the Colour to impromptu soccer matches and sunglasses grabbing at polo and more.
Royal watchers have also had plenty of time to see William, Kate, Meghan and Harry in action as parents, with countless moments of the Cambridges and Sussexes admirably doting on their children.
Meanwhile, the family has looked more united than ever at some standby events, from Trooping the Colour to Royal Ascot and the Garter ceremony. The Queen also hosted US President Donald Trump and US First Lady Melania Trump on a state visit in June. In March, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla had a blast while the Caribbean and made history by becoming the first royals to visit Cuba.
There’s still five months of royal events in 2019, including the Sussexes and Cambridges’s tours of sub-Saharan Africa and Pakistan, respectively, plus all the fun that will be guaranteed to happen over the holidays.
But we want to know what you think! How important internationally are the royals to you? Have your opinions of them changed over the last few years? How do you think Charles is doing as heir apparent? What is your opinion of them as parents? Do you think royal couples should have more children, or are they good the way they are?
