Best of 2011: pictures of the year – a right Royal smooching

Posted at 4:15 pm, December 24, 2011 in Arts & Entertainment

The past year has been a momentous one for London: sit-ins, strikes, demonstrations, rioting and royal (as well as not so royal) snogs all hit the headlines during 2011. The year ahead promises much drama of its own (with the mayoral election in May and the Olympics in July for starters) but in the meantime here are some standout images from an unforgettable 12 months.

….and then another kiss. Prince William gets tongue-tied with his new bride Kate, and London gets in the mood to party (though the bridesmaid doesn’t look too impressed).
