Fans love it when the royals let their guard down, which is why this was one of our most popular galleries of 2019. Some of the best photos are taken during these candid, more relaxed moments, so we’ve decided to round up the most heartwarming snaps, starting with…
Prince William, Kate and Prince Harry
Before the ‘Fab Four’, William, Kate and Harry would carry out some official duties as a trio. Here, the royals are pictured attending The Charities Forum in London in 2015. They had a go at ‘Welly Wanging,’ which involves throwing wellies at a plastic model in the hope that it will topple. Competitive William, Kate and Harry each went for it, with the Duke of Cambridge proving the champion.

Prince William and Kate
During their royal tour of Bhutan in April 2016, William and Kate attempted archery, the country’s national sport. The pair looked highly amused as Kate’s arrow massively missed the target and veered off course. The Duchess, in hysterics, instinctively held up her hand in apology.
Prince Charles and Camilla
These two always have a laugh on engagements! The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall were attending The Garden Party to Make a Difference at Clarence House in 2010. They watched a performance of Henry Dagg’s Cat Organ, prompting a fit of giggles.
The Queen and Prince Philip
Possibly one of our favourite photos of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, this picture was taken as the couple bid farewell to Irish President Michael D. Higgins and his wife Sabina at Windsor in 2014.
Sarah, Duchess of York and Prince Andrew
Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah, pictured at a golf tournament, have remained the best of friends despite the breakdown of their marriage. This photo was taken in August 1995, some three years after they announced their decision to separate in 1992. Their divorce was finalised in May 1996.
Prince Charles and Camilla
In Scotland, they’re known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay. Charles and Camilla couldn’t contain themselves as they watched the tug of war at the 2005 Mey Highland Games, where they also drank whisky from a quaich (a shallow bowl). It was given to the royals as a wedding gift and judging by the pictures, they were very much still in the honeymoon phase!
The Queen and Meghan Markle
One month after joining the royal family, Meghan carried out her first joint engagement with the Queen in Cheshire. While many would feel incredibly nervous performing the task, Meghan showed her relaxed and confident nature as she chatted and joked with Her Majesty.
Prince William and the Duchess of Cornwall
We wonder what he said! The future King shared a joked with his stepmother Camilla at the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games in London in 2014, prompting Camilla to nearly cry with laughter.
Prince William and Kate
The Cambridges had a grand old time at the London 2012 Paralympic Games. The couple giggled to each other as they attended a track cycling event, which also saw them take part in a Mexican wave around the Velodrome.
Prince Harry and Princess Anne
Prince Harry almost had tears streaming down his face, much like his aunt Princess Anne and his cousins Zara and Mike Tindall. The royals were attending the Patron’s Lunch – a special street party held to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday. Also joining the group was Princess Margaret’s daughter, Lady Sarah Chatto.
The Queen and Prince Charles
One of the most fun engagements of the summer is the annual Braemar Games Highland Gathering. It usually marks a return to royal duties for the Queen, who spends the warmer months in Balmoral. Here the monarch is pictured laughing with her husband Philip, her son Charles and her daughter-in-law Camilla as she watched the tug of war.
The Duchess of Sussex and the Duchess of Cambridge
On their first official joint appearance together, Meghan and Kate’s friendship was clear to see. The pair were attending the Royal Foundation Forum in London with their husbands Harry and William.
