Best royal photos of 2013

A year always comes down to just a few moments in time.  Hours, days, weeks, months - all disappear to be remembered by a few fleeting seconds that last forever. The images that sum up a year hold all the joy, hope and sadness that the twelve months they happened in brought with them.  Caught forever, a few unforgettable royal moments from 2013.
