Winchester in South East England is the happiest place in the United Kingdom. This is according to a new happiness index released by the Royal Mail, which measures happiness in areas around the UK. The areas are ranked based on eight different factors, including average earnings, life expectancy, access to health services and levels of deprivation. Carbon emission levels, residents’ reported sense of well-being, the earnings of the local authority and crime are also taken into account. While the Royal Mail ranked England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales separately as well as a general United Kingdom ranking, it was found the top 10 locations were all based in England – meaning these two tables look the same. The slideshow above, therefore, shows the happiest districts in the United Kingdom as a whole. The South East of England scored particularly well, with five out of ten local authorities from this region scoring in the top ten list. Elsewhere, here are the happiest areas in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. 1. East Renfrewshire 2. East Dunbartonshire 3. Aberdeenshire 4. Stirling 5. Scottish Borders 6. Midlothian 7. East Lothian 8. Highland 9. South Ayrshire 10. Shetland Islands 1. Monmouthshire 2. Vale of Glamorgan 3. Ceredigion 4 Carmarthenshire 5. Pembrokeshire 6. Bridgend 7. Neath Port Talbot 8. Cardiff 9. Torfaen 10. Powys 1. Lisburn and Castlereagh 2. Newry, Mourne and Down 3. Causeway Coast and Glens 4. Ards and Northdown 5. Mid Ulster

The Duchess of Cambridge and the Queen have always had a close relationship, with Kate speaking about Her Majesty’s caring nature during an interview to mark her 90th birthday in 2016. With the duchess set to be William’s Queen Consort when he takes the throne in future, she’s got a good mentor in the 92-year-old monarch. Kate began dating William at university in 2003 and she reportedly met the Queen for the first time at Peter and Autumn Phillips’ wedding in 2008. William proposed in November 2010 and the couple were married in April 2011, when the Queen gave them the titles of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Kate and Her Majesty had their first official engagement together in Leicester in March 2012, to mark the first date of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee tour of the UK. Before that, they viewed Kate’s Alexander McQueen wedding dress on display at a Buckingham Palace exhibition. Since then, they’ve hosted receptions at the palace together and have been present on the famous balcony for annual events such as Trooping the Colour. They also enjoyed a girls day out together with Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall in 2012, when they visited London’s Fortnum & Mason. The Duchess of Cambridge appears to have taken some style lessons from Her Majesty, favouring block coloured shift dresses and bold coats. She’s even borrowed jewellery from the royal vaults, including tiaras, brooches and earrings. Take a look at Kate and the Queen’s best moments together over the years.
