Royal WIlliam Queen Philip

He certainly carries himself like a future king!

Prince William joined his grandmother Queen Elizabeth and grandfather King Philip for the Windsor Grey horse statue unveiling in honor of the monarchy, and he looked every inch a royal in a navy suit and bright blue tie.

The statue marks 60 years of The Queen’s Coronation in 2013 and the important role of Windsor Greys in the ceremonial life of the royal family and the nation.

Although Kate Middleton and Prince George skipped the festivities, it will be a family affair when the whole family goes to tour Australia next week!




Prince William's Private Voice Mails To Kate Middleton Are Released, Refers To Kate As "Babykins"

What do you think Prince William's nickname for his lady love Kate Middleton is? Snookiwookums? Love muffin? My Principessa? Lil tatertot? Sex monkey? Good guesses but alas -- no.

Apparently the Duke Calls his Duchess "Babykins"! Who knew? The News of the World -- that's who! During the lawsuit, the former British tabloid who allegedly hacked the phones of several leaders and celebrities, including the royals, lawyers played private phone messages from Prince William to his then-girlfriend from 2006 in which the prince refers to his paramour by nickname.

"Babykins, just tried ringing you, hope you're alright," William said in a voice mail message. We love that Willy calls her Babykins! Too cute!

In another, more alarming message, the prince reveals he almost got shot while doing officer training in Sandhurst back in 2006.

"Hi baby. Um, sorry, I've just got back off my night navigation exercise … I've been running around the woods of Aldershot chasing shadows and getting horribly lost, and I walked into some other regiment's ambush, which was slightly embarrassing because I nearly got shot. Not by live rounds, but by blank rounds, which would have been very embarrassing, though."

Yikes! We are definitely glad the royal made it out alive!

These messages are the first confirmation that Middleton's phone had been hacked by the disgraced and now defunct News of the World.

Now we just have to wonder what Kate the Great's nickname for her hubby is?! The Balding Eagle? Prince Sexy? Prince Charming My Pants Off?

Prince William and Kate Middleton attended the London premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom on Thursday evening at the Odeon Leicester Square Cinema, and Prince George's parents looked amazing when they posed for pictures on the red carpet.

Middleton wore a longsleeve Roland Mouret gown, and this isn't the first time we've seen her in this stunning dress -- she wore it to a dinner at Claridges in 2012. Not only is she beautiful and down to earth, but we love that she's on the more practical side too...

Prince William reacted to the news of Mandela's passing yesterday, and he told reporters, "It's extremely sad and tragic news, we're just reminded what an extraordinary and inspiring man Nelson Mandela was. Our thoughts and prayers are with him, and with his family right now."

Taylor Swift met Prince William at the Winter Whites Gala in Aid of Centrepoint at Kensington Palace in London on Tuesday evening, and even though she's one of the most successful singers in the world, even she was a little bit starstruck!

"Oh my God, this is so incredibly exciting to be performing at Kensington Palace," she gushed to Us Weekly. "With the snow, the lighting, the decorations, it's all so Christmas-y. It's kind of surreal, right? I'm at a palace! I'm just soaking it all in. It's going to be a great night."

When asked whether she was nervous about performing, she joked, "I try not to think about that!" Swift sang "Trouble," "Love Story" and "Fifteen," but not before taking the stage with Wills and Jon Bon Jovi for an impromptu performance of "Living On A Prayer." Check out the video below!



This was her first royal engagement, and after meeting the Duke of Cambridge, she told reporters, "He's so funny! I was really happy he was funny."

Before she performed Taylor told the crowd of 600 people, "I have to thank you, Prince William, for having me. It’s amazing. To call attention to this age group especially, teens and young adults." Centrepoint "is the UK's leading charity for homeless young people, supporting 16-25 years olds with housing, learning, health and life skills," according to their website.

All aboard! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge rode a classic 1960s Routemaster bus to surprise military personnel and volunteers who were supporting the Royal British Legion for Poppy Day. The couple took a five minute bus ride from Kensington Palace to High Street Kensington station, where thousands of RBL supporters congregated, and were joined by famous British "Carry On" actress Barbara Windsor, who is the Poppy Day Ambassador.

Poppy Day (or more formally know as Remembrance Day) has been a a memorial day since World War I to remember the members of British Commonwealth's armed forces who have died in the line of duty.

While on the short ride, the Barbara Windsor asked about the Prince George, to which Kate replied, "He's half asleep," and William added, "He's behaving himself this morning."

After disembarking the bus, William and Kate were met by the excited Poppy Day crowds. The duo greeted and spoke with volunteers, Poppy Girls, military personal and other supporters.

For the public event, Kate wore a coat by LK Bennett and William, who recently left his position as a search and rescue pilot, opted for a classic navy suit. Both Royals wore the iconic red Poppy Day pins to show their support for the fallen troops.

Prince William made his first TV appearance since the July 22 birth of Prince George and said Kate Middleton is a "fantastic" mom, Sunday night with CNN's Max Foster.

Sitting in a quiet garden at Kensington Palace, the 31-year-old future King described the day after little George's birth, when he and Kate presented their son to the world just outside the hostpital's front door, walking to the crowd, waving and talking to fans:

    "I was on such a high anyway, and so was Catherine about George, that really we were happy to show him off to whoever wanted to see him,. As any new parent knows, you’re only too happy to show off your new child and, you know, proclaim that he is the best looking or the best everything. I'm just glad he wasn’t screaming his head off the whole way through!"

The new dad said baby George doesn't like to sleep, unfortunately:

    "... he's a little fighter. He kind of, he wriggles around quite a lot. And he doesn't want to go to sleep that much, which is a little bit of a problem."

And on fatherhood changing the future Prince's perspective ...

    "The last few weeks for me have been a very different emotional experience, something I never thought I would feel myself. And I find, again it's only been a short period, but a lot of things affect me differently now."

Prince William's Passion: New Father, New Hope premieres on CNN on September 15 at 10 pm ET.

Prince William and Kate Middleton announced today that the full name for their newborn son is George Alexander Louis.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge left for her family's Bucklebury estate today, but not before getting a visit from Queen Elizabeth II, who stopped by Buckingham Palace to spend some time with her great grandson.

Assuming Prince Charles and Prince William take their turns on the throne, the little Prince of Cambridge (who is currently third in line) will someday become the 43rd English monarch.
