  • The Cambridges are undoubtedly the most talked-about family in the world, and in the aftermath of the Sussex’s departure, it’s hardly surprising that Prince William and Kate Middleton have been making non-stop viral news.

    The past year has seen everyone talking about their relocation to Anmer Hall to isolate as a family, Prince William’s coronavirus diagnosis and George and Charlotte learning remotely.
