Striking images of Britain’s royal family are featuring in a new exhibition for being among the best news photographs of the year.
Candid photographs showing William, Kate, Harry, Princess Charlotte, and the Duke of Edinburgh are being shown at an event by the British Press Photographers’ Association.
The royal family featured heavily in the 50+ images put on display at the Old Truman Brewery in east London.
Key royal moments from the past year (measured from August 2016 to August 2017) include the wedding of Pippa Middleton, and the final public appearance of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, at a military ceremony at Buckingham Palace.
The exhibition is open to the public from October 13 to October 16.
The younger generation of royals made for the most fun photo of the set. Here, the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William, and Prince Harry sprint for the finish line at a race in aid of the mental health charity Heads Together.

The Queen loves to drive, Range Rovers in particular.
The vehicle gave rise to a memorable anecdote whereby the monarch terrified the king of Saudi Arabia by driving him at top speed around the grounds of Balmoral Castle in the Scottish Highlands.
The Duchess of Cambridge crops up again in this photograph, along with her daughter Princess Charlotte (bottom left) at the wedding of Pippa Middleton. An unnamed page boy does his best to steal the show.
