Prince William was photographed leaving the King Edward VII Hospital in Central London this evening (December 3rd) after visiting the Duchess of Cambridge, who is expecting the couple’s first child.
Catherine was admitted to hospital after falling ill while at her parents’ house in Bucklebury, according to royal reporter Richard Palmer. William drove his wife from her childhood home to hospital, after which she will rest at home.
St. James’s Palace confirmed that Catherine is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, and unfortunately she’s had to cancel three upcoming engagements as a result.
Though the palace won’t confirm a due date for the heir/heiress, it’s believed that the Duchess is between 8 and 12 weeks. Read More »
The blessed thing isn’t even born yet, and already it’s more popular than, well, anyone. For those of you wondering, the child will be a prince or princess because at least one of his or her parents is a blood royal.

This is the bit of news royal watchers have been waiting for every since the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge got hitched on April 29th, 2011. Her Royal Highness is expecting the couple’s first child, and yours truly is – naturally – so friggin’ excited.
St. James’s Palace confirmed that the poor thing is suffering from a bout of Hyperemesis Gravidarum, a very acute morning sickness, which requires supplementary hydration and nutrients.
Royal reporter Richard Palmer tweeted that Catherine was at her parents’ house in Bucklebury when she was taken by car to King Edward VII hospital in Central London. Prince William was at the hospital with her.

The year was 2006. Kate Middleton was just 13 months out of university and dating Prince William. She had (and has maintained) a teensy-tiny waist and showed it off in a BCBG Max Azaria gown at the Boodles Boxing Ball in London.
The fringe Catherine is currently sporting made its first big appearance at this charity event.
The only reason people are falling over themselves now is because once upon a time, they didn’t pay much mind to the slight alteration in her hair do.
Middleton was a fixture at the Boodles Boxing Ball, an annual charity boxing match held to raise money for various foundations over the years. The event, attended by many a London blue blood, started with a simpler concept in 2002. Read More »
In the words of Joey Essex, the Duchess of Cambridge looked #REEM today in Berkshire, England. She arrived at St. Andrew’s School, her old stomping grounds, to the delight of students and staff. Today marks St. Andrew’s Day, a bank holiday in Scotland, and a day observed by the primary school with festivities and “progressive games” played by both students and teachers.
The children – ranging in age from 2 to 6 – were dressed in their school uniforms, which Catherine smartly matched in her black watch tartan McQ coat. My gals What Kate Wore and My Small Obsessions confirmed that Catherine also wore her trusty Aquatalia boots, Diana’s blue sapphire earrings and a black clutch she’s had since 2008.
Speaking to the students, Catherine asked if they kept pets at school, which she and sister, Pippa did many years ago; Catherine attended St. Andrews from 1986 until 1995.
“There was one called Pip and one called Squeak, because my sister was called Pippa and I was Squeak,” the Duchess told them.
Catherine opened a new astroturf playing field by unveiling a plaque and playing a game of field hockey. In her heels. Didn’t break a sweat. Read More »
On this week’s episode of The Duchess Diary, we flipped through some royal photos published exclusively on Clarence House’s site, and got to know a more personal side of Catherine.
We also had a lot of fun looking at her top notch outfit repeats (LK Bennett and Mulberry), as well as a touching moment for Prince William at Millenium Stadium in Cardiff.
How about HRH’s new hair do? People have had their say online about Catherine’s new fringe, but it’s not a drastic change from the gorgeous hair we know and love. Read More »
Dear me. Once upon a time, a man could be tried for treason and beheaded for calling a duke a “douche” (albeit accidentally).
Luckily, CBS 2 anchor Rob Morrison can just laugh it off over a domestic beer, and toast to his good fortune that his people are no longer under the crown. Morrison was teasing an upcoming segment on William and Catherine’s visit to Cambridge during yesterday’s midday news, but accidentally referred to His Royal Highness as the “douche” rather than “duke.”
Quite frankly, the only thing Morrison is guilty of is reading the teleprompter too quickly. Still, this makes for a fantastic story, doesn’t it?
His co-anchor, Mary Calvi, didn’t fare any better. Rather than clean up after Morrison, she called William “Prince Harry” and Catherine “Princess Kate.” I know it’s live television, but you guys are supposed to be sharper than this.
Absolutely Fabulous star and comedienne Helen Lederer walked the red carpet at tonight’s comedy gala, We Are Most Amused, put on in support of The Prince’s Trust at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
After I got over the initial shock of eyeliner overdose, I couldn’t help but notice how lovely Lederer’s necklace was.
Leder is a patron of The Prince’s Trust, launched in 1976 to help change the lives of disadvantaged young men and women. Tonight’s event featured performances by Joan Rivers, Jimmy Carr, Rowan Atkinson, Ed Byrne, Milton Jones, Omid Djalili, Sanjeev Bhaskar and Lederer.
Ah, and there is the Duchess of Cornwall and her knight in shining armor, Prince Charles.
