Annus Horribilis: Latin phrase for "horrible year".

Alas, it was the year of the scorned princess
when Diana did on Charles and Camilla dis!
  But the Queen hid her dis-dain
  yet through it all she did reign
and God saved her from her annus horribilis!

Imagine her reflecting ruefully on New Years Eve about the previous twelve months. 'What a Year I've had'
