Royal News 2012: Kate Middleton Pregnant, Prince Harry Naked & More Of The Year's Highlights (PHOTOS)

The past year has been an eventful one at Buckingham Palace, to say the least. After 2011 was spent obsessing over the best royal wedding ever, we figured the next 12 months in royal-watching would bring us back to a calmer place -- oh how wrong we were.

This year marked Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee, the monarch's 60th anniversary on the throne, and royals and commoners alike had ample opportunity to celebrate. (Remember how hungover Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince Harry looked the morning after the epic concert?) Along with all of the reveling, there were plenty of pride-inducing moments and more than a few scandalous incidents.

In honor of this commemorative year, we've rounded up the most memorable royal highlights (and lowlights) from 2012. So sit back, relax and take a close look at how the other half lives. Oh, and get ready for 2013 -- there's a royal baby on the way, people!
