Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Features,

Prince WilliamPrince William will study at Cambridge University next year.

The second in line to the British throne - who stepped down from his career with the Royal Air Force (RAF) earlier this year - will study Agricultural Management at the prestigious British seat of learning between January and March 2014. The 10 week course is the first step for the prince in learning how to manage the Duchy of Cornwall; a portfolio of land, property and investments which he will inherit from his father, Prince Charles, when he becomes king.

William - the Duke of Cambridge - will have 18 to 20 hours of lectures, seminars and meetings a week, as well as essays and field trips to complete. A Kensington Palace spokesperson said the prince was "very much looking forward" to the course, adding, "The executive education programme of seminars, lectures and meetings will draw on the strengths of academics across the university. The course has been designed to help provide the Duke with an understanding of contemporary issues affecting agricultural business and rural communities in the United Kingdom."

Kanye West says his daughter North is the same as Prince George.

The "Heartless" rapper claims his five-month old child should be considered royalty and an equal to the young prince, the first born of Prince William and his wife Duchess Catherine. "My daughter is in a position of a level of royalty like the prince and princess in London," Kanye said in an interview on Power 105's Breakfast show.

Taylor Swift, Bon Jovi, and Prince William

Is Prince William our next big rock star? A video documenting the royal's trio act with Taylor Swift and Bon Jovi (seen after the jump!) performing "Livin' on a Prayer" might convince you if you're actually having a hard time imagining it.

Swift and Bon Jovi were present at the UK's Winter Whites Gala held at Kensington Palace for a fundraiser in aid of the Centerpoint charity. Although Swift performed a song about palaces and princes in a palace with a prince - "Love Story" - folks in attendance were in for a huge surprise when Bon Jovi took the stage, encouraging the British royals' newest father to join him on stage. At first hesitant, Prince William hinted that he'd only agree if Swift would join in - to which she easily obliged (who wouldn't get the opportunity to sing alongside a real-life prince and a living musical legend?).

David Beckham Set for Knighthood?

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Sports, Rumors,

David BeckhamDavid Beckham is set to be given a knighthood in the New Year's Honors List.

The retired soccer and showbiz icon will become a "Sir" with final approval reportedly due later this month.

According to reports in The Sun on Sunday newspaper, his $260 million finances are being assessed - as is the norm before any knighthood. "HM Revenue and Customs look at the higher honors - specially at high earners like sports people - to see if there is anything they want to double check," a source said.

It is expected Britain's Prince William will perform the annual ceremony, which would be attended by David's wife Victoria, their daughter Harper, two, and their sons Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 12, and eight-year-old Cruz.

It is said the former Manchester United and Real Madrid player's name was put forward after he ended his 20-year-old career earlier this year after he won the French soccer league with Paris Saint-Germain. However, his role as an ambassador for Britain and excessive charity work - along with the part he played in bringing the Olympics to London last summer - will also be honored.

Taylor Swift Excited About Royal Performance

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 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!
