According to William Hill, the bookmakers have seen a fresh wave of punters believing that Prince William and Catherine Duchess of Cambridge's second baby will be called Alice. The name is a traditional one in the British royal family and has been thrown around in recent weeks as a popular choice. Bookmakers noted that a group of royal fans in Tunbridge, Kent have placed a large amount of bets on the name Alice, causing them to slash the odds to 4/1. Competing company Ladbrokes have also cut the odds to 3/1. The Duchess of Cambridge is due to give birth in "mid-to-late April" "We h...

Helen Mirren has described her Oscar win as both 'terrifying and incredible.' Mirren got her hands on the biggest prize back in 2006, when she scooped the Best Actress Oscar for her performance as Elizabeth II in the critically acclaimed The Queen, which saw her team up with director Stephen Frears. The script was penned by Peter Morgan and followed the Queen in the aftermath of the death of Princess Diana - where she had to struggle between being the queen and a grandmother. Mirren's central performance brought her critical acclaim and a whole host of awards - she also scooped the Golden Globe, Bafta, and Screen Actors Guild Award for her terrific central performance. And she admits that everyone was expecting her to win the Oscar at the end of the awards season. Speaking to the M...

Prince Charles
Prince Charles urged people to help the environment however on Sunday he and Camilla flew by helicopter Prince Charles made an 80-mile trip by helicopter just days after he urged people to turn off their lights to save energy. The heir to the throne urged people to help the environment by turning off lights for Earth Hour on Friday. But on Sunday he and Camilla flew by helicopter from Highgrove, Gloucestershire to Ascot, Berkshire. It is estimated the helicopter burned through around 54 gallons of fuel on the journey. If he had taken his Jaguar XF it would have used around 1.7 gallons, taking just over an hour and a half. Charles and Camilla were seen enjoying themselves on Sunday as they watched a herd of sheep fence jumping at The Prince’s Countryside Fund Raceday at the prestigi

Duchess Catherine
Envy or pity Catherine Duchess of Cambridge and her elegantly attired baby belly I can't decide whether I envy or pity Catherine Duchess of Cambridge and her elegantly attired baby belly. On the one hand, so peachily privileged and her purpose so clear: breed to support the monarchy. Turn up, smile and be good for UK plc. When it all gets too much, drop the children with the nanny and pop to the Maldives for a week. Recover some inner peace and bake the next one. On the other hand, constantly judged by fools like me and locked inside that pampered cage surrounded by oddballs. No, not you Harry. The rest of them. Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, Duchess of Cambridge For us mere mortals, Middleton serves as a daily reminder of the old world order, idealised by Ukip. A time when women w...

Duchess Catherine, Prince William
Punters have staked a significant amount on the Second Royal Baby Name leaving one bookmaker facing a potential five-figure payout Punters have staked a significant amount on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge naming their second baby Alice - leaving one bookmaker facing a potential five-figure payout. The odds on heavily pregnant Catherine Duchess of Cambridge and William calling their baby Alice have tumbled with bookmaker William Hill from 14-1 to 4-1 after the bets were made last week. William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said: "Alice is the new favourite and we have seen a significant number of bets, particularly from the Tunbridge area - you have to think there is good reason for the gamble." If the wagers prove correct the bookmakers face losing a five-figure sum. After Alice t

Prince William's 21-year-old cousin looked hot and handsome in a plain black tee as he hugged Minaj for photos. Meanwhile, the hip-hop star looked like she was equally enjoying the photo op as she flashed a giant grin also.

Unfortunately, while Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II got within inches of the royal seat, Why did she decline the chance to perch on it?  The monarch visited the Game of Thrones set in Northern Ireland last year but, despite an expectant internet, opted not to take a seat... Last year the internet watched with baited breath as Queen Elizabeth II paid a visit to the Game of Thrones set in Northern Ireland. Would she perch on the (frankly rather uncomfortable looking) Iron Throne – the prize George R. R. Martin's characters are squabbling over? Unfortunately, while Her Maj got within inches of the royal seat, she declined the chance to perch on it. Now Game of Thrones' executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have teased the reason why... “Apparently the Queen of England is
