Prince William’s longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton surprised us this week in a pair of yellow short-shorts and sequined halter top she wore to an ’80s-themed charity event she co-hosted. Typically, the 26-year-old wears dresses or suits of which the Queen would approve. What else don’t we know about her?
Madame Tussauds has already started making a wax replica of her — so it will be ready when she and Prince William get married. The rumor-mill says they’ll be engaged around Christmas and married next year. Talk about pressure. No wonder Wills is losing his hair.

Saturday is Prince William’s 26th birthday, and he is concerned about his thinning hair. One Mail on Sunday reporter said that part of the reason William has stopped going out so much is because he’s self-conscious about the back of his head. For his birthday, William will celebrate at Highgrove, the family estate, instead of going out on the town. Prince Charles is said to have given William the key to the extensive wine cellar, and William’s favorite drink, the “crack baby” will also be served. (Crack Babies are fresh passion fruit mixed with vodka and champagne and served in a little shot glass.) William, don’t worry about your thinning hair. As a prince, I’m sure people can overlook this, plus, you’re really tall. If you don’t stoop to other people’s level, no one will ever notice. Also, that beret-style hat is a good look for you.

Kate Middleton, Prince William’s longtime girlfriend, quit her job as an accessories buyer at the end of last year to pursue a career as photographer. But for the past three months, she has been working for her parents’ mail-order company, photographing new stock for its website. While she’s technically working as a photographer, it doesn’t seem like a real job. You might be saying, “Oh, she’s 26 years old and trying to find herself,” but that’s not what a friend of hers told the Sydney Morning Herald. “It’s an easy number for Kate and basically something to fill her days while she waits for William,” the friend said. The Queen is not happy about Kate’s joblessness, as she thinks Kate should get a real job instead of biding her time, waiting for William to propose. Is the Queen just a meddling mother-in-law, or should Kate, possibly a future princess, actually get a job? Keep reading »
David Beckham recently bought Victoria a vineyard in California’s Napa Valley. Apparently the two developed a passion for wine while they were in Spain (which also happens to be when Becks developed a passion for the nanny). But don’t think you’ll be able to go to the liquor store and pick up a bottle of Chateau Posh — it will be consumed by themselves and friends only. Check out some other extravagant celeb gifts after the jump. [MarieClaire.co.uk] Keep reading »
We’ve all been forced to grow up and think that fairy tales, where Prince Charming rides up on a white horse, are a bunch of bull. But hunky Prince William has put the faith back in our beloved bedtime stories! Earlier this month, the pilot Prince flew a $20 million dollar Royal Air Force helicopter to his girlfriend Kate Middleton’s house to impress her. How romantic! While any girl would go for a ride in his cockpit, the Prince is already in trouble for swiping a helicopter to take his brother Harry to a stag party on the Isle of Wight. And okay, so this little romp alone cost the military $60,000, but giving every girl the hope that someday their prince will come is priceless! Right? [Daily Mail]

Royalty, they’re just like us! Princes William and Harry helped their cousin Peter Phillips party it up at his bachelor party last weekend. The night included drinking games and personalized t-shirts — well, rugby shirts with nicknames written on the back. Harry’s said “Hazza.” [AHN] Keep reading »
William may be second in line to the thrown after his father, Prince Charles, but Harry has always been first in line to our hearts. The second son of Charles and Diana (or so they’d like us to believe!) possesses the fiery ginger hair and freckles of his mother’s side of the family and none of the inbred awkwardness of his father’s, making him the dark horse in the race for hottest royal. After it was revealed last week that Harry had been fighting on the front lines for the British Army in Afghanistan, the world took their eyes away from Will’s rapidly thinning bald spot and cast them upon the little spitfire, currently single after a break-up with longtime girlfriend Chelsea. We don’t really care if his time in the British Army is just a photo op or real bravery — all we know is that he looks mighty fine in those fatigues. Keep reading »
