Cheers, Queen Vic You may think that wearing a white dress on your wedding day is a trend steeped in history, dating back centuries and centuries, but you would be wrong.

After being knocked unconscious by a tree at work, Schembri woke up as he was being loaded into an East Anglian Air Ambulance in Wisbech, a town in England. Despite his injuries, Schembri — a former soldier — managed to recall Prince William worked for the helicopter service, and cracked a joke at the royal's expense. "I said Willsy better not be flying this thing," Schembri told ITV News. To his surprise, the 33-year-old prince responded to him from the pilot's seat and teased "oh, I've been holding your head for the last 30 minutes." According to Schembri, who suffered from a dislocated shoulder and rib, the Duke of Cambridge even visited him in the trauma room after the accident. This isn't the first time Prince William has flown to the rescue. In November 2011, the royal rescued

Queen Elizabeth II, Royality
David Beckham says it 'doesn't get any better' than meeting Britain's Queen Elizabeth. The retired soccer star has recalled the day he met the 89-year-old royal when he collected his Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE) in June 2003.

Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Charles, Royality
Simon Dorante-Day wants a DNA test to prove he's the rightful heir to the throne. Simon Dorante-Day is on the hunt for evidence that he is the son of Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla. 'I believe this has been a cover up,' he said in an interview with Today Tonight's David Richardson, which aired on Sunrise. ‘I know it sounds unbelievable, but anything I say is checkable... I’m simply a man looking for my biological parents, and every road has led me back to Camilla and Charles,' he told New Idea last week. Simon believes that Camilla fell pregnant to Charles in 1965, but she kept her pregnancy a secret as she 'promptly disappeared from the social scene.'

The 89-year-old royal - who reaches the milestone birthday in April - was joined by two of her great-grandchildren for the shoot with famed photographed Annie Leibovitz. A source told The Sun newspaper: "William and Kate were with the children but as adoring parents rather than wanting to be in the pictures themselves. Annie was taking the official pictures but Kate took her own snaps for the family album. It was really cute. "The Queen loves her great-grandchildren and is very proud of them. The pictures will be a lovely way to mark a remarkable 90th birthday." Meanwhile, Annie previously revealed the monarch is "feisty". She said: "Oh my god, she's feisty. That was the session that had so much controversy over it. And I said, 'what are you talking about?' I mean, she was just incre...
