The Best Photos of 2018 from Reuters

At the end of the year, it is customary to sum up and plan for the future. We remember 2018 for many happy and non-happy accidents: recall the World Cup , the death of the brilliant theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking , numerous events in the British royal family, including the wedding of Megan Markl and Prince Harry, the birth of the third child of the prince William and Kate Middleton, the news of the pregnancy of the Duchess of Sussex ... 

Employees of one of the world's largest news agencies Reuters have collected a collection of the most dizzying events of 2018 in photos. The selection usually includes pictures that caused the greatest excitement in all 12 months. Most of these shots were made under an incredible set of circumstances. Looking at these frames, it is sometimes difficult to understand what is happening to them. Some of the photographs are worth seeing more than once or twice.  We offer you to take a look at the best photos of 2018 according to Reuters!
