Meghan Markle steals the show in Kensington Palace's short video of the royal family's 'Favorite Moments of 2018'
Meghan can clearly be seen as the star since she features heavily in the video, especially since her sister-in-law Kate was on maternity leave after giving birth to her third child
Kensington Palace has had quite a busy year, with the Royal Family literally jam-packed with important events like Prince Louis' birth, and Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle, to name a few. As the year comes to an end, the Palace released a video capturing the favorite royal moments from 2018.
And not-so-surprisingly, it is Meghan Markle who steals the show, as she makes the most number of appearances in the short, three-minute clip. While the Duchess of Sussex raked in 31 appearances in the video, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, came close with 23 appearances to her credit.
Here are some of our favourite moments from 2018 — thank you to everyone who made this year so special. See you in 2019! pic.twitter.com/2GiUvI7QnX— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) December 29, 2018
The video starts with the Palace's favorite moments from January, all through December. The main highlights of the video are: the first time the Fab Four are seen together in the Palace's video during a royal foundation event in February, Prince William and Kate on the steps of the Lido Wing cradling new baby Prince Louis in April, and Harry and Meghan's wedding in May.
In the final half of the video, Meghan can clearly be seen as the star since she features heavily in that duration, especially since her sister-in-law Kate was on maternity leave after giving birth to her third child. In the short video clip, one shot also sees Meghan giggling with the Queen at a royal engagement.
The clip, which only features five moments of the two royal couples being together, comes amid rumors of there being a rift between the pregnant duchess and Kate. But the duo put all rumors to rest as they joined the Queen at a church service in Sandringham on Christmas Day earlier this week.
The official Twitter account of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex posted the throwback clip today and it has already had more than 98,000 views. Thousands of royal fans put forward their comments on the video, reflecting on how good it felt looking back at the busy year the Royals have had.
One person wrote: "What an epic year for all four. Keep up the good work." Another added: "What a great royal year it was! Can’t wait for what 2019 will bring, especially #babysussex"
Moreover, it was Princess Anne who was crowned this year's most hardworking royal, just like how she's been receiving the accolade since 2015, after it was noted that she had carried out engagements on more than 180 days. In comparison to her, Prince William spent more than 120 days working, while Prince Harry spent more than 90 days working this year.
