Have iPhone, will go viral.
When one single mom snapped a photo of Prince William, Duchess Kate, Meghan Markle, and Prince Harry at the Royal Family Christmas celebration, she had no idea that it would go massively viral and she would become a hero of the Internet.
But that's just sort of how things go these days, isn't it?!
All the current (and future!) members of the Royal Family were in attendance on Christmas Day for a service at the Queen's estate in Norfolk.

Professional photographers were in attendance to capture each moment of the special day.

That's exactly what happened this year.

It's truly a one-of-a-kind experience for many.

That's exactly what happened for Karen Anvil from Watlington in Norfolk.
Had a lovely morning at Sandringham with my daughter! https://t.co/XceMtXDlBM— Karen Anvil (@Karen Anvil)1514202709.0
You've probably seen Anvil's photo because it's been shared approximately a billion times since she took it:No big deal, just an amazing photo of the gorgeous Royal Family looking beautiful and happy on Christmas Day!
When asked how she managed to get their attention for the photo, this is what she had to say:
@BeingKimmie Just Merry Christmas! It was lovely :)— Karen Anvil (@Karen Anvil)1514206595.0
Within hours of Anvil posting the photo, it had thousands of likes and retweets. According to the BBC, "her previous record was just five likes."
Seems a photo taken by a member of the public at Sandringham is on the front of many national newspapers tomorrow -… https://t.co/kG2ShpZBlO— Allie Hodgkins-Brown (@Allie Hodgkins-Brown)1514239852.0
But when she was made privy to the opportunity to make a little cash, she figured out a copyright.
@carolanna1895 Omg! I have no idea what I’m doing 😂— Karen Anvil (@Karen Anvil)1514210699.0
