    The end of a year brings with it a much-loved social media tradition: The Instagram ‘best nine’. Since Christmas your Insta feed has no doubt been full of little three-by-three grids celebrating peoples best (most-liked) moments of 2018 or, in the case of newlyweds, a throwback picture or two from their big day.

    Even Princess Eugenie is no exception to the latter, posting a sweet picture of ‘the best moment of 2018’ – from her wedding to Jack Brooksbank in October, at which she had three different wedding dresses.

    However, one of her most-liked pictures from last year actually got Eugenie into some trouble a few months ago.

    The below shows her dad, Prince Andrew, in his uniform before his first Trooping the Colour as Colonel of the Grenadier Guards – but something about the picture meant she ended up getting a royal telling off for posting it.

    Can you spot what was wrong with it?

    Well it turns out you and I aren’t supposed to see that particular bit of Buckingham Palace.

    ‘I recently got in trouble for posting a picture of Papa in a corridor of the palace that was off-limits to the public,’ Eugenie told Vogue earlier this year. Whoops!

    Easily done, we say. Fingers crossed the Queen wasn’t too mad.
