Taylor Swift Excited About Royal Performance

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Performances, Country, Pop,

Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift feels "honored" to have been asked to perform for Prince William and Duchess Catherine next month.

The superstar is one of several acts - along with Bon Jovi, James Blunt and Eliza Doolittle - set to play at the royal couple's Winter Whites Gala in London's Royal Albert Hall on December 8, in aid of homeless charity Centerpoint, and she is thrilled to have been asked.

"I'm really excited, I'm going to be playing the Winter Whites Gala, I'm really stoked, it's the first royal engagement I've done and I feel very honored," she said in an interview.

And the "I Knew You Were Trouble" hitmaker is already thinking about what to say and do if she gets the opportunity to meet the royal couple at the event, but she isn't getting her hopes up: "I've been asking about that [etiquette], I think I'm safe if I just shake hands and be polite. I think it's presumptuous to assume I'll meet them, so first I'm going to be polite enough to not assume I'll meet them."

Duchess Kate and Prince William with Prince George

Britain's Prince William has made his first official public appearance since becoming a father.

The 31-year-old royal - who became a dad for the first time when his wife Duchess Catherine gave birth to their son Prince George on July 22 - took part in the Audi Polo Challenge at Coworth Park, Berkshire, South East England on Saturday, alongside his brother, Prince Harry. The game was held to benefit SkillForce and The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, of which William is patron and president respectively.

Prince Harry Spotted Shopping at Discount Retailer

Prince Harry at TK MaxxLike the rest of us commoners, it looks as though Prince Harry can't resist a good deal when he sees one, either.

Dressed inconspicuously in a cap, plain sweater, and blue jeans, the 28 year-old looked like any other customer when he was photographed shopping at British designer discount store TK Maxx (known as TJ Maxx on our side of the Atlantic). The British royal must have been taking cues from his sister-in-law, Duchess Catherine, who is known for recycling her clothes and mixing high fashion labels with more affordable pieces.

Having spent 30 minutes in the store - where, according to other customers, he was "relaxed and chatty" - Harry emerged with "T-shirts, a hoodie, other clothing and an iPhone case" in a plastic bag (clearly not opting for being very green that day).

Though it's not a stretch to see the Duchess shopping at such a store considering her more humble background, it is rather nice to see that even a prince isn't above saving some cash!

Duchess Catherine Keeps up With the Kardashians

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Rumors,

Duchess Catherine/Kate MiddletonDuchess Catherine is obsessed with Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

The 31-year-old royal - who was known as Kate Middleton before her marriage to Prince William - has begun tuning into the show after she learned Kim Kardashian, who, like the duchess, is expecting her first child in July, is a big fan of hers.

"Ever since Kim started mentioning Kate a lot in public, she has started watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians religiously. She thinks the family are hilarious. People forget Kate is just a normal girl who married into royalty and enjoys the same trashy TV shows most people do," a source said.

However, Catherine hasn't been able to get her husband to watch the show with her and he has been "making fun" of her new obsession. "Will doesn't watch the show with her and makes fun of her for liking it so much. It doesn't bother Catherine though. She finds it relaxing and is flattered Kim keeps speaking so highly of her," the source added.


Duchess Catherine Hoping for Baby Boy

Duchess Catherine and Prince WilliamDuchess Catherine hopes she is pregnant with a boy.

The royal is expecting her first child later this year and while handing out symbolic shamrocks to members of the Irish Guards at the annual St. Patrick's Day ceremony on Sunday, Catherine revealed she wants a son while her husband Prince William is hoping for a daughter.

"I asked her do you know if it's a girl or a boy and she said not yet. She said 'I'd like to have a boy and William would like a girl.' I asked her if she had any names and she said no," said Guardsman Lee Wheeler. Catherine - who was known as Kate Middleton before her marriage - also told Sergeant Thomas Laven she is prepared for many sleepless nights.

It was recently claimed the couple are expecting a girl, after a well-wisher presented her with a white teddy bear during an official visit to Grimsby, north England and she said, "Thank you, I will take that for my d... for my baby." Sandra Cook, who was standing next to a woman who gave Kate the cuddly toy, said, "As she handed it over I distinctly heard Kate say, 'Thank you, I will take that for my d...' Then she stopped and corrected herself to say, '... for my baby.'"


Did Kate Middleton Reveal Her Baby’s Gender?

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrity Babies, Pregnancies,

Duchess CatherineWhether you're a popstar-turned-reality star or a royal, it seems that keeping mum on your unborn baby's gender is hard to do. Duchess Catherine seems to have spilled the beans on which sex she's expecting during a recent visit to the English town Grimsby.

According to 67 year-old Sandra Cook, Mrs. Prince William - upon receiving a teddy bear from someone in a crowd outside the town's fishing museum - said, "Thank you, I will take that for my d-..."

"I said to her: 'You were going to say daughter, weren't you?'" Cook added. To no one's surprise, Kate tried to save face by claiming that neither she nor William know the sex of the baby and added, "We're not telling."

Unless the duchess slips up in a more prominent manner or decides to announce the gender publicly, it looks like we'll all have to wait until the baby is born in July to find out whether Ms. Cook truly does have a sharp ear!

Prince William Is Ready for Diaper Duty

Kate Middleton and Prince WilliamBritain's Prince William is reportedly studying videos of how to change diapers. The prince and his wife Duchess Catherine are preparing for the arrival for their first child in July, and William is determined to be a hands-on dad.

"He's even been checking out nappy-checking videos on YouTube. His brother Prince Harry thinks it's hysterical and can't stop making fun of him but it's all good spirited," a source said.

William is also keen to interact with his unborn child and tries to make time every day to sing to it. The source added to Now magazine, "He read somewhere it's never too early to start talking to your baby and he's taken the advice to heart even though it's not due until July. Kate thinks it's adorable. He's even been telling their bump some of the old stories his mother Princess Diana used to make up for him and Harry when they were kids. It's become an almost daily ritual for William to chat to her bump and sing a lullaby or song."


Vivienne Westwood Picks on Duchess Catherine

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Fashion Designers, News,

Vivivenne WestwoodDuchess Catherine can't seem to please anyone in the fashion world.

First Matthew Williamson slammed the future queen - known at the time by her maiden name Kate Middleton - on her style, and now Vivienne Westwood is chastising the royal for not recycling her clothes.

"I don't have any advice for her, [although] I think it would be great if she wore the same clothes over and again, because that's very good for the environment and it would send out a very nice message. If you're going to all that trouble to get an outfit that suits you, then you should keep on wearing it. I mean you don't have to have a red outfit one day and then something almost the same in blue the next," the veteran designer said at London Fashion Week.

While it's humorous that Westwood - who herself puts out a new collection of clothes at least twice a year - called Duchess Catherine out for not recycling her clothes, Fashion Police correspondant Kelly Osbourne blasted her about re-wearing her clothes a couple years back!

Holly Madison Hospitalized

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Pregnancies,

Holly MadisonHolly Madison has revealed she has been suffering from severe morning sickness.

The reality TV star - who is expecting her first child with her boyfriend Pasquale Rotella in March - was hospitalized on Monday because she is suffering from a similar illness to Duchess Catherine despite being in the late stages of her pregnancy.

"When it started happening really late [in my pregnancy] and I was really vomiting a lot during the day, it freaked me out. I was told to go to the doctor and get an IV and everything. So, that was kind of scary to me just because it seemed like something so unusual, something that I hadn't read about. But everything's OK so far, so that's good," the former Girls Next Door star told Entertainment Tonight.
