With weeks of glorious sunshine, a world cup, a whirlwind of social events and plenty of high-profile weddings, summer 2018 has certainly been one to remember. And particularly so for these 12 ladies - who HELLO! have chosen as our women of the summer. From the Duchess of Sussex who made her triumphant debut as a member of the royal family after marrying her dashing Prince, to Dani Dyer, who won not just the heart of her man but of legions of fans on Love Island, it's been a time for making magical memories for our super 12 – including Millie Mackintosh, whose lavish English country garden-themed wedding to Hugo Taylor was covered exclusively by HELLO!, and Vogue Williams, whose secret Scottish nuptials to Spencer Matthews also graced our cover. Meanwhile the Duchess of Cambridge has been getting into the swing of life as a mum of three – including getting Prince Louis christened back in July – and Zara Phillips has welcomed her second child, Lena.
For many of them, there are just as exciting times ahead, too. Vogue is awaiting the birth of her first child, Princess Eugenie is preparing to be a bride herself when she ties the knot with Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle in October, and Lily James has sparked engagement rumours – could she be walking down the aisle with her actor beau Matt Smith sooner rather than later?
