Although, never fear, we have a lot of royals coverage tee’ed up to go up over the next week or so, so please keep checking back, including a round up of The Year in Royal Babies coming your way tomorrow. (And if you missed any of our royals coverage this year, you can always use the handy drop-down menu to catch up; all the Royals Rounds-Ups can be found here, for example.)

In case you missed it earlier this week, Wills and Kate and Harry had an outing at which Kate looked VERY festive. We also put together a giant fashion retrospective of Meghan Markle, with the thought being that you cannot be too prepared.
