The top 20 most significant royal moments of 2013

On 24 January Princess Marie and Prince Joachim of Denmark's baby daughter Athena turned one.

To mark the important milestone, Athena's proud parents released a set of images of their daughter (pictured right), dressed in a pretty blue dress, happily playing with her mother.

Just one month later, on 23 February, Princess Estelle of Sweden blew out the singular pink candle on her birthday cake.

Royal watchers were entertained with a series of photos that showed a grinning Estelle tucking into the sweet treat.
