The week kicked off with the downcast #BlueMonday, but millions in America were too busy to feel the January blues as they celebrated the inauguration of President Obama for a second term.

Packed with well-wishers, the ceremony in Washington included a 'live' performance from super-star Beyonce.

Our very own Prince Harry dominated the headlines on Tuesday with an interview about his duties in Afghanistan. However, the royal received mixed reviews to his candid comments. One things was certain, the pictures released showed an Action Prince.

Throughout the week we had a fantastic response to our request for your weird and wonderful pictures of snowmen, included an icy Darth Vader, a hungry shark and a Dr Snow (man).

Mesmerising images of a building encased in ice was a highlight on Thursday, and Friday ended with a triumph has Andy Murray gave a winning serve at the Australian Open tennis championship in Melbourne.

The Huffington Post Picture Desk brings you the best photos of the day from around the world, chosen by our very own picture editors.

Flick through the best pictures of the week, 21st - 25th January:

Tuesday 22nd January

prince harry

Prince Harry has confirmed he killed Taliban insurgents during his latest tour of Afghanistan. As a gunner in Apache attack helicopters, the royal flew on scores of missions with his fingers on the triggers of deadly rockets, missiles and a 30mm cannon. And now that the 28-year-old is bound for the UK after his second deployment to the war-torn country, it can be reported he took enemy fighters "out of the game" during his 20-week posting.

    Working in Afghanistan was "as normal as it's going to get" for Prince Harry. Away from camera lenses, media speculation and royal engagements, he could get on with his day job in relative anonymity. Within his unit he was just "one of the guys" - Harry to his friends and superiors, Captain Wales to everybody else. "It's completely normal," he said while on duty at the Apache flight line in Camp Bastion. The royal lived in a shared room in an accommodation block made of modified shipping containers with another attack helicopter pilot and had the freedom to walk around the base, to visit the gym, eat in the canteen and drop off his laundry.

Snow has been falling all over the UK: it's been impossible to avoid it. Not only has it been blocking our drives and pavements, but also blanketing news sites and clogging up social media feeds. However with the curse of the cold stuff has come a new current, with not merely snow men but ambitious snow creatures appearing in gardens and parks around the country.One of Huff Post UK's readers sent in this amazing picture of a snow shark, setting a precedent for snow sculptures we've seen so far.
