For Queen Elizabeth II, 2021 was a challenging year that brought sorrow, scandal and personal health issues, all of which played out under the ever watchful eye of the British tabloid press — for which the lives of royal family members remain a topic of fascination and frequent scrutiny.

Prince Philip, to whom she was married for more than seven decades, died in April — and a photo of the queen sitting alone at his funeral because of coronavirus restrictions summarized for many the cruelty of the pandemic. It was also a year that saw new controversies — with Prince Harry and Meghan’s explosive Oprah Winfrey interview sparking debate about racism in the royal family — as well as concerns over the 95-year-old monarch’s health.
