Kate Middleton has reportedly filed the paperwork for royal baby George's first passport ahead of her and Prince William's royal tour to Australia and New Zealand next year. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to take the future King on his first foreign holiday when they take a trip Down Under next spring as a part of their royal duties, with dad Wills hinting at the last month's Anglesey Show: "We are all very hopeful of coming to Australia next year." The royal couple will be following in Princess Diana of Wales' footsteps by taking their heir with them - Lady Di did the same with a 9-month-old William back in 1983 when her and hubby Prince Charles toured Oz. Two-month-old Georgie has already flown to Scotland with his parents when the trio visited
Prince Harry will make his first official visit to Australia next month.

Want to live surrounded by the aura of royalty?

Diana is a controversial film. I know that because there has been much shock and awe at the mere mention of its name, the sheer bald audacity of its existence, in the run-up to its UK release next week. Kate Middleton has allegedly worked hard to get a "distressed" William to "focus on the future" as the the film "forces" members of Diana's family to 'relive the events leading up to her tragic death'. This is another way of saying the film concentrates on the last few years of Diana's life. Beyond that fact, the reality is that this is a movie so terrified of upsetting anyone it floats beyond the horizon of credibility within five minutes, creating a version of the People's Princess so saintly and infallible theVirgin Mary looks positively wicked in comparison. "I want to help people," s

They were then taken by car to Balmoral Castle, where the young family was greeted at the Queen’s residence on Royal Deeside by an excited Prince Philip, who has been desperate to meet his great grandson since the tot arrived on July 22.

Former lover Hasnat Khan on Princess Diana Film The new film about Diana, Princess of Wales, has been attacked by her former lover and the man on whom one of the film’s principal characters is based, heart surgeon Hasnat Khan. Khan, who had a well-documented relationship with Diana between 1995 and 1997, admitted he has not seen the film but accused it of being “based on gossip”, in an interview in the Mail on Sunday. He said the film’s story came from “Diana’s friends talking about a relationship that they didn’t know much about, and some of my relatives who didn’t know much about it either. It is all based on hypotheses and gossip.” Diana, which stars Naomi Watts as the late princess, and Naveen Andrews as Khan, focuses on the relationship between the two, which ended shortly before th

Duchess or Princess? It’s come up again. For those of you who aren’t aware, following a lot of big stories involving Kate’s name or title there often comes the assumption that because the Duchess of Cambridge is known as ‘a Princess of the United Kingdom’ or on the occasion that she is simply referred to as a Princess, that must mean she is Princess Kate/Catherine… Wrong. The reason why she was referred to as a Princess of the United Kingdom on the birth document of Prince George today is because she is… but not quite as you think. Through marriage, she is Princess William because that is how British titles work. Just like how when you marry, a woman traditionally takes their husband’s name – the same is true for titles. People also seem to think that Kate will be made a Princess one day
