Duchess Catherine
After more than half a decade officially in the royal spotlight—and an few early unofficial years at Prince William's side—Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton is firmly taking the reins of her own royal life. After marrying Princess Diana's oldest son in 2011 and giving birth to their son, Prince George, and their daughter, Princess Charlotte, in the six years that followed, the 35-year-old has certainly been a highly-publicized staple of Britain's first family. However, as she approaches her first decade of regal life, Middleton is diving into her role headfirst arguably more so now than ever before as her husband gears up to become king and, likewise, as she awaits to be queen. Particularly, Prince William is reportedly leaving his air ambulance job this summer to focus solely on roy

Kate Middleton is ‘less than pleased’ with Prince William’s ski trip behaviour And we’re not surprised… Prince William made waves earlier this week when he skipped the annual Commonwealth service at Westminster Palace for a boys ski trip in Verbier. With Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry all in attendance, Prince William was the only senior member of the royal family to be absent from the prestigious event, something that didn’t go down well with the general public. While Prince Harry was greeting crowds outside Westminster Palace, photo and video footage was emerging of Prince William unwinding in Switzerland and enjoying the après-ski life, dancing to hip hop until the early hours. And we’re not surprised… Prince Wi

Prince Harry - who's mother Princess Diana passed away in 1997 after being fatally wounded in a car crash in Paris - has already introduced the 'Suits' actress to his father Prince Charles, and sources say the next step is getting the mark of approval from the 90-year-old monarch.

Prince William
Prince William, the heir to the British throne, on Monday skipped a major ceremony with Queen Elizabeth and other royals to celebrate Commonwealth Day. Instead he was spotted in the Swiss alps, drinking beer on the ski slopes with friends after partying into the early hours the night before at a club in the posh ski resort town of Verbier, the Daily Mail reported. The British tabloids were also eager to point out that he seemed very friendly during a leisurely lunch Monday at a mountainside restaurant with a blonde 24-year-old Australian model named Sophie Taylor. It is believed that William left his wife, Kate Middleton, and their young children at home for this “lads only” weekend jaunt, returning to England late Monday afternoon.

So is it time for the Queen to step down?

Prince Charles
When will Prince Charles become king? Prince Charles has been first-in-line to the throne for 65 years, longer than any other heir in UK history. Should he replace the Queen, he would be the oldest monarch to accede to the throne. Over the past few years, however, Charles has taken on more of his 90-year-old mother's duties as a kind of "unofficial co-regency" and last night, represented her at an evening reception to mark Commonwealth Day. So is it time for the Queen to step down? Constitutionally, there is nothing to prevent Queen Elizabeth, who became the UK's longest-reigning monarch last September, from stepping down. Her uncle, Edward VIII, famously abdicated in 1936 in order to marry US divorcee Wallis Simpson, making his brother, the Queen's father, King George VI. ...

It's a common social conundrum — you've run out of things to chat about but feel uncomfortable ditching the conversation so abruptly. Well, would you be surprised to discover that the Queen of England has someone on hand to end that awkward encounter for you on cue? That's right! According to royal historian Hugo Vickers, Queen Elizabeth II has a system of subtle codes that indicate to those around her that she's ready to wrap it up. Apparently, the Queen typically stands with her purse tucked into the crook of her left arm, but when she casually shifts her pocketbook to her right arm it signals to her handlers that she's ready to move on. They then swoop in and politely usher her away from the conversation. Thankfully, this has typically been done very kindly. "Someone would come a
