Fabulous news out of the Royal Family today! It was so funny – I was chatting on the phone with my mom about how the rumors are really swirling about Kate Middleton being pregnant, and I logged onto People.com to see their breaking news – Prince William and Duchess Kate are expecting! This is the statement People.com shared: “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby. The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news. The Duchess was admitted this afternoon to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London with Hyperemesis Gravidarum. As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter.”
I have been one that is obsessed with William and Kate – I loved staying up to watch their wedding and find Kate to be a top-notch role model to young girls, and of course – her classic fashion sense. No due date was announced, but I’m sure much of the world – myself included – will be watching and waiting anxiously!

Kate is a princess. Er, I mean a Duchess. I was one of the many who got up early in the morning to watch Catherine Middleton marry her own Prince Charming- Prince William. Kate’s dress had been highly kept under wraps, but it was revealed on Friday morning it is an Alexander McQueen gown designed by Sarah Burton, the label’s creative director. The train was two meters long, and Kate wore a long veil that covered her face as she walked up the aisle. Other highlights of the wedding:
- Kate’s sister and maid of honor, Pippa, looking absolutely stunning in a sleek ivory gown- also an Alexander McQueen.
- Prince William telling Kate she looked beautiful when she finally made it to the altar- I was lip reading.
- Princesses Beatrice and Eugenia and their fashionable fascinators.
- The looks Prince William kept shooting Kate throughout the ceremony. The love was so evident.
The wedding was absolutely beautiful, full of love and romance. Kate was the perfect mixture of a traditional and modern bride, and everything seemingly went off without a hitch. The Queen announced their official titles are now Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Who else watched the royal wedding? What did you think of Kate’s dress? What was your favorite part of the wedding?

Who’s ready for another royal wedding? It’s official: after eight years of dating Prince William and Kate Middleton are set to marry! No date has been revealed yet, only that the wedding will occur sometime next spring or summer. I hadn’t been born yet when Prince Charles married Princess Diana in 1981, but from the pictures and videos I have seen, it truly was the wedding of the century. I am looking forward to seeing how Prince William and the soon to be Princess Kate stack up.
The official statement of the engagement:
The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton.
The wedding will take place in the Spring or Summer of 2011, in London. Further details about the wedding day will be announced in due course.
Prince William and Miss Middleton became engaged in October during a private holiday in Kenya. Prince William has informed The Queen and other close members of his family. Prince William has also sought the permission of Miss Middleton’s father.
Following the marriage, the couple will live in north Wales, where Prince William will continue to serve with the Royal Air Force.
