Queen Letizia of Spain’s sister-in-law, Infanta Cristina, has been found not guilty in the tax fraud case, which first began in 2010.

Back in 2015, King Felipe stripped his sistr of her title, the Duche

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. Kate, wearing a grey furry hat and a forest green coat and black heels, walked the short distance to the church with smartly-dressed William. But there was no sign of George or Charlotte. The rest of the Middleton family, Kate's sister Pippa, mother Carole, father Michael and brother J...

A "Queen Catherine" could be decades away for the royal family, but Kate Middleton and her husband, Prince William, seem to be getting a head start in 2017. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are reportedly moving into Kensington Palace in London, a 20-room royal palace the couple used to host international leaders, including President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle, while living part-time in the stately home.

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...

At 90-years-old, Queen Elizabeth II has officially entered her twilight: she's stepped down as patron from 20 charities "to lighten her work load," and is currently battling the 13th day of a "heavy cold" that forced the monarch to skip out on annual royal holiday celebrations. All this has brought to light the inevitable question of who replaces the queen, as her 68-year-old son Prince Charles is set to become the first king since 1952. Whether Charles' wife Camilla Parker Bowles, the Duchess of Cornwall and heir apparent of Queen Elizabeth II, will be given the ceremonial title when her husband assumes the throne, has remained unclear. Though the public’s perception of Prince Charles’ second wife has softened in recent years, Bowles has had a complicated relationship with the British
