A stunning new exhibition is to showcase the wide-ranging roles of the Royal Family over the past year, including weddings, parenthood and cheeky days out at the races.

These include the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle whose wedding captured the hearts of the nation when they tied the knot at St George’s Chapel, Windsor last year.
