God Save the Queen and the Rest of the Royal Family For Giving Us Good Laughs in 2018
The British royals had some of the most hilarious moments of the year. Although the family is known for being prim and proper, they certainly know how to let loose, have fun, and crack a few jokes. Queen Elizabeth II quipped about her age (even though we're kind of expecting her to live forever), Prince William took a walk on the wild side when he rode a motorcycle — probably to Kate Middleton's dismay — and Prince Harry became friends with a puppy while greeting a crowd. Even little Prince George and Princess Charlotte got in on the action with a few of their adorably comical antics at weddings.
We're looking forward to seeing even more good times among the royal family next year. But for now, let's take a walk down memory lane and look back on the moments that made us laugh out loud and wish we were in with the regal crowd.

When we say Elizabeth is such a queen, we really mean it.
