A Will & Kate Year In Review: The Moments Of 2012

What a year of twists and turns and and fun and drama it was for Will and Kate -- the Royal Wedding seems like a distant memory now! In no particular order, here's a few of the big ones:

The worst was the scandal where a photographer took pictures of Kate sunbathing topless -- but the good was the public uproar, including our Facebook petition in support of the tabloids leaving Will and Kate alone, which went viral with 455,000 "Likes".

2. The most exciting news was when the Palace announced Will and Kate were having a baby. It was a day Royal enthusiasts around the world had been waiting (im)patiently for. And boy was that woman right who gave Will a babygro!

3. One of the cutest stories was when it was revealed Kate's nickname was Squeak growing up -- funny one for a future princess!

4. There were also some great Royal snapshots of Will and Kate this year, including this Diamond Jubilee one on the Thames as part of the Diamond Jubilee river pageant -- marking three generations of Royals -- as well as their first public carriage ride since the Royal Wedding (see pic below). 

5. Sexy Kate -- she'll be known as Sexy Princess Mommy Kate next year when the baby's born -- was chosen as Dream Bond Girl in a British poll. 

6. Will and Kate's support -- and the world's -- for Harry after his naked "scandal" in Vegas was tremendous.  

Who can forget Will and Kate's wax replicas being revealed at the famous wax museum Madame Tussauds to mark their first anniversary in April. The replicas got decidely mixed reaction from fans! We like the real life version more!! 

8. It was also a year when Will and Harry's beloved childhood nanny, Olga Powell, passed away. She had a great impact on their lives growing up.

9. Kate also welomed her man back from the Falkland Islands after his 6-week deployment with the RAF, a long time for a newlywed couple to be apart -- and Kate missed him terribly

10. This was the year Kate also went out in public more on her own, including a surprise visit to London's Museum of Childhood, her first public speech at a Children's Hospice, and tea with the Queen and Duchess of Cornwall. And on some of her outings, she created a fashion frenzy -- including coral skinny jeans revealed at Olympic Park

11. Will and Kate also showed their fun side throughout the year, including generating comic relief at a friend's wedding and in their epic Dancing Royals Performance on the tiny island nation of Tuvalu, where they boogied with colourful skirts with local performers.

Here's to an amazing 2013 for the Royal lovebirds -- and their growing family!
