Topic: Kate Middleton
The British royal family may be mere figureheads, but they’ve still got serious economic power. The wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William in 2011 was said to bring £2 billion in tourism to England, and 10 dresses worn by Princess Diana recently sold at auction for more than $1 million. But the royals and their relatives make big waves even when they do small things. Exhibit A: the story of a Texas woman whose jewelry business exploded after Pippa Middleton wore her necklace on a Starbucks run (but never sent a thank-you note).
In the brave new world of smartphone culture, it can seem like there’s a celebrity nude-photo scandal every other day. Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively, Prince Harry … the list goes on. We’ve ogled their naughty bits and moved on. It’s easy to forget that for the celebrities themselves, these can be pretty miserable experiences. (Unless you’re a cynic who thinks they orchestrated the scandal themselves, of course.) Vanessa Hudgens, the formerly squeaky-clean Disney actress, opens up to Paper magazine this month about her own photo scandal. More
The first official portrait of Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, Future Mother of the Baby Who Shall Rule Us All, was unveiled this morning and, um, it’s not exactly flattering. Critics are calling it “rotten,” and saying Kate looks like a refugee from the Twilight series. Click through to see the portrait in all its “hamsterish” glory. More
A duchess’s work is never done: Hospitalized less than two weeks ago for acute morning sickness, Kate Middleton made a public appearance last night, presenting an award at something called the BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards. She looked gorgeous as usual, but don’t you want to tell her it’s OK to stay in bed just a bit longer? What’s the point of marrying a prince if you need to go rushing back to work so soon after a serious illness? More
It was only on Monday that we found out that Kate Middleton and Prince William were expecting a child but it seems like it has been months considering the amount of press coverage that has been shoved down our throats. And now we are already starting to see businesses start to profit from this baby that is still in utero. More
Last fall we wrote about how Pippa Middleton was benefiting immensely from her sister Kate’s new position as one half of the hottest royal couple on the planet. Some were criticizing Pippa, including The Queen, for using her newfound fame, to further her career (Pippa had just landed her book deal.) But now it seems that the tables have been turned. Pippa is now turning down opportunities to promote her book in the U.S., Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends, including appearances on Oprah, Ellen and Anderson Cooper as well as a hosting gig on Entertainment Tonight, because the focus will eventually turn to her sister’s recent topless photos.

Kate Middleton’s topless photo blunder is turning into a more serious situation. An Italian gossip magazine, Chi, owned by former Premier Silvio Berlusconi said Saturday it plans to publish topless photos of Prince William‘s wife Kate, despite legal action against a French magazine that published the images first. Chi is trying to defend its decision to publish by saying the photos are glamorous and will help the new modern image of The Royal Family. The Royal Family, who is looking to take legal action, clearly doesn’t feel the same way. More
Kate Middleton has made a blunder for the first time in her life as part of the Royal Family. Topless photos of the Duchess of Cambridge have been published by a French tabloid. The Royal Family is apparently outraged that the photos were published. Unlike Prince Harry who was also recently caught on film in the buff, Kate has had a perfect record up until now. Kate has been considered the greatest PR gift the Royal Family could have asked for until now. Can she survive this? More
The city of London has managed to nab the title for fashion capital of the world for the second year in a row, due in large part to Kate Middleton. Analysts say the Duchess of Cambridge’s impeccable style and the success of this summer’s Olympics were important factors in deciding the 2012 rankings. Because of Kate, London managed to top Paris, Milan and New York City for the title.
Today marks the 15th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death. It’s hard to believe that it has been over a decade since we mourned her passing but that is probably because her two sons, William and Harry, are in the spotlight all the time, there are two movies coming out about her life and her amazing charity work still lives on. As a result, Diana is still very much in the public consciousness. More
