In a heartfelt interview with British GQ, the Duke of Cambridge opened up about the sadness of missing his late mother and his approach to raising a family.

Everyone's obsessed with the Royal Family right now — from The Crown to Ryan Murphy's upcoming Charles-and-Diana season of Feud, we can't get enough of the British monarchy on our TV screens. Our daily dose of Prince George and Princess Charlotte cuteness doesn't hurt things either, but beyond the scandals, the fashion, and the history, the food is actually pretty interesting, too.

There has been growing interest in what will happen at the time of succession when Prince Charles becomes King, including what title Camilla would be given.

So This Is Why Catherine Duchess of Cambridge Always Carries a Clutch

Duchess Catherine
Keep your clutch in both hands and smile politely Have you ever seen Kate Middleton at an official engagement carrying anything other than a clutch? We know—we too racked our brains (a.k.a. Google) trying to find at least one exception, but alas, the clutch is as much a Kate Middleton staple as is her bouncy hair.
