Royal Week in Review – April 14, 2012

The Queen with Viscount Severn and Lady Louise Windsor This week we saw some startling headlines when two royal grandchildren had accidents (in separate incidents), but fortunately neither suffered life-threatening injuries.

Other big royal events of the week included a funeral, the enthronement of a king, and an important honor for Prince Charles's wife, Camilla. Never a dull moment in the world of royalty…
