Gallery: 22 times the royals have cried in public (Hello!)
The British royal family are known for their cool, calm exteriors and traditional stiff upper lip. And in general, they're a family with a lot to celebrate. Here at HELLO! we like to focus on all the happy occasions, but there are of course, as in all of our lives, more trying times. Take a look at the touching moments when our favourite royals, including European ones, showed they're just like the rest of us, and they couldn't help let their emotions get the better of them. READ: 13 times the royals lost their cool in public The Countess of Wessex The Countess of Wessex was visibly emotional at the Remembrance Sunday service in London back in November 2021. Sophie joined the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge on the balcony of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office building to watch the annual ceremony as they led tributes to those who have died in world wars and other conflicts.
WATCH: Prince Harry is overcome with emotion at WellChild Awards 2019 In October 2019, the Duke of Sussex carried out a very poignant engagement – attending the WellChild Awards, which celebrates the inspirational qualities of seriously ill children and young people. Harry welled up as he gave a speech, reminiscing on how this time last year he and his wife Meghan were the only people to know that the Duchess was pregnant. Demonstrating how strong a parent's love is, Harry said: "Last year when my wife and I attended we knew we were expecting our first child - no one else did at the time, but we did…" Harry, overcome with emotion, trailed off, bent his head down and cleared his throat before continuing. Gaby Roslin was on hand to comfort the Duke, as he continued: "I remember squeezing Meghan’s hand so tight during the awards, both of us thinking what it would be like to be parents one day, and more so, what it would be like to do everything we could to protect and help our child should they be born with immediate challenges or become unwell over time. And now, as parents, being here and speaking to all of you pulls at my heart strings in a way I could have never understood until I had a child of my own."
The Duchess of Sussex Meghan was visibly emotional as she made a heartbreaking admission during her and Prince Harry's interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2020. Meghan revealed that she had experienced suicidal thoughts during her pregnancy with Archie at the height of her crisis in the monarchy, telling Oprah: "I just didn't want to be alive anymore." While she had asked the palace to seek professional help, she later reached out to one of the best friends of the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

The Queen Mother The Queen Mother was spotted wiping away a tear during celebrations to commemorate the 50th anniversary of VE Day in 1995. The Queen Mother's late husband, King George VI, was monarch during the Second World War and the royals had stood on the balcony of Buckingham Palace when victory was declared in Europe in 1945.
Princess Charlotte During the 2018 Trooping the Colour ceremony to celebrate the Queen's birthday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's daughter Princess Charlotte had a teary moment. The young royal slipped and fell, banging her head on the balcony railing. Kate, who was standing behind her then three-year-old, scooped her up into her arms and snuggled her close.
Prince Charles The future King looked visibly emotional as he carried out a poignant engagement at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire in August 2020. Joined by his wife Camilla, the couple attended the VJ Day National Remembrance event. Charles led a two-minute silence and laid a wreath at the Kwai Railway Memorial during the event to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VJ Day - the day World War Two ended with Japan's surrender.

The Duchess of Sussex In a lighthearted moment in 2018, it was joy and not sadness that caused Meghan to well up. During her visit to Tonga a newly-pregnant Meghan got the giggles when a group of school children sang a funny song to her and husband Prince Harry, about mosquitos.
The Duchess of Cambridge When the Duchess of Cambridge attended a launch event for East Anglia Children's Hospices charity in November 2014, she was seen welling up as she drove away from the engagement. Kate, who was four months pregnant with Princess Charlotte, had spoken to one attendee, Leigh Smith. The pair had corresponded after Leigh sadly lost her three-month-old baby Beatrice from a rare heart condition. Kate replied to her letter and sought Leigh out during the launch event. Physiotherapist Leigh revealed: "Kate gave me a hug just before she left. I was getting quite teary-eyed, she had tears in her eyes and she just said to me, 'You're a very brave lady and again, I'm just so, so sorry.'"
Queen Mathilde of Belgium Proud mother Queen Mathilde fought back a tear as she watched her daughter Crown Princess Elisabeth deliver a speech in an official ceremony to mark her 18th birthday in Brussels. Elisabeth will become Belgium's first Queen by birth when she ascends the throne.
The Duchess of Cornwall Prince Charles' wife Camilla welled up during a visit to the Safelives Centre in London in January 2016. The Duchess spoke to victims of domestic abuse and heard from Diana Parkes, whose daughter Joanna Brown was murdered by husband Robert.
The Queen Remembrance Sunday is always a poignant event in the royal calendar, and in 2002, the Queen was overcome with emotion as she visited the Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey.
The Queen The first time Her Majesty cried in public was in December 1997 when her beloved HMY Britannia was decommissioned. It was a rare sight for fans to see the normally stoic royal shed a tear. The Queen was saying goodbye to her luxury yacht, whose costs were too great to maintain. The ship had faithfully served the royal family for over 40 years.
Princess Anne Senior royals attended the decommissioning ceremony, including the Queen's daughter Princess Anne who also wiped away a tear.
Prince William And in scenes similar to Kate and George, Prince William was comforted by his mum Princess Diana during a sports day in Richmond back in 1990.
Princess Beatrice A young Princess Beatrice burst into tears after her friend was refused entry to the Royal Box at the Royal Berkshire Polo Club in 1991.

We relive all the pomp and splendour of her Coronation Day and how it is etched in a generation’s memories, plus put the seven decades of her reign in context as her life and world-changing events intertwine.
