Duchess of Cambridge celebrates 35th birthday

The Duchess of Cambridge celebrates her 35th birthday today. Kate is expected to mark the occasion privately with the Duke of Cambridge and her children Prince George and Princess Charlotte, ahead of her first public engagements of the new year. There were no clues about how she would spend her special day when she appeared with the Royal Family at church in Sandringham on Sunday where the Queen was in attendance for the first time since a heavy cold kept her away from services over the festive period.

The rest of the Middleton family, Kate's sister Pippa, mother Carole, father Michael and brother J...

When will Harry pop the question? Bookies back royal wedding in 2017 Bookmarkers have slashed the odds on Prince Harry getting engaged to Meghan Markle this year after the couple reportedly enjoyed a romantic break to see the Northern Lights. News that the love-struck pair, pictured, had cuddled up under the Aurora Borealis prompted Ladbrokes to slash the odds of a 2017 proposal from 3/1 to 4/6, with a 2/1 chance of the couple actually marrying within the next 12 months. Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “As far as the odds are concerned it’s a case of when, and not if, Prince Harry pops the question to Meghan.” The betting frenzy followed reports that Harry, 32, whisked his 35-year-old girlfriend to the edge of the Arctic Circle for their first holiday together last week. They ap

With Prince William's two-year piloting contract ending in March, however, the new year provides a unique opportunity for the royal family. The two will raise their toddlers, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, in the quiet Lo...
