“It’s been an emotional year for viewers with plenty of great TV moments,” said a Samsung spokesman. “From factual to fictional, there have been a number of twists and turns in 2017, and with a Royal wedding on the cards, we can’t wait to see what 2018 brings.”

The “Royal wedding” referenced of course is that between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, with the date now set for Saturday, May 19 in 2018.
