Ms Fiorito said: “I have to say it was so hard to narrow down, the royals were a huge part of the year.

Richard Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex still have enormous appeal worldwide despite stepping down from the Royal Family.
The royal commentator stated that Meghan and Harry are concentrating on their future in America and praised the couple’s work since leaving the monarchy.
Mr Fitzwilliams said: “When the pandemic permits, Harry and Meghan plan to launch Archewell, their non-profit charitable organization, which will champion causes they believe in, such as diversity, gender equality, the environment and helping those suffering from mental illness, which should be applauded.
“They have, as is evident from their deals with Netflix and Spotify, enormous appeal and a worldwide reach.
“Clearly, there are boundaries which they ought not to cross and this matter will be looked into when the agreement made with the Queen at Sandringham is reassessed before the end of March next year.”
The royal commentator added: “They are concentrating on a future in America whilst keeping some British patronages and a Commonwealth role.
