Royal Occasions in 2018
It’s been quite the year for the Royal Family as 2018 has marked several special occasions throughout. At the start of the year (January), Princess Charlotte began her first year at Nursery. Following this was the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s third Royal Baby in April. April was also the celebration of The Queen’s 92nd birthday too. And in May, the official Royal Wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex took place, an occasion enjoyed by plenty and one that took place at the illustrious St George’s Chapel.
There is still another landmark event to take place however. In November, the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles will celebrate his milestone 70th birthday. Prince Charles is the longest serving heir to the throne in British history. It’s expected that his birthday will be celebrated with a black tie event hosted by the Duchess of Cornwall.
