Controversy grew in Parliament on Thursday over the propriety of Prince Charles and Princess Diana possibly serving as Britain's king and queen in the wake of their announcement that they will live separately but will not divorce. The fierce debate occurred as the Princess of Wales revealed that she will not attend the wedding of Princess Anne, her sister-in-law, in Scotland on Saturday.

The British monarch is said to be “thrilled” over the birth of the as-yet-unnamed baby, who stands third in line to the throne after his grandfather Prince Charles, the heir apparent, and his father.

LONDON -- Prince William, second in line to the throne and father of the world's most celebrated newborn, is giving up active duty in the British military for a life devoted to charity and public service, the royal family announced Thursday. The prince, 31, is completing a seven-and-a-half-year military tour, most of it spent as a rescue pilot based in Wales. Leaving the armed forces will allow William to become, in effect, a full-time royal representative dedicated to shaking hands, cutting ribbons, promoting worthy causes and generally preparing for the day he will be king.

Prince William is bidding adieu to the Royal Air Force and active military duty. The Duke of Cambridge, 31, second in line to the British throne and father of Prince George, will conclude active duty to focus on his royal responsibilities instead. What royal responsibilities, you say? Mostly those that involve public service, giving speeches, promoting worthy causes, being a national icon, preparing to be king and all things aristocratic that don't always make as much sense to residents of a country with a history of anti-royalist dissent, according to World Now. PHOTOS: Kate Middleton through the years The announcement comes after 7½ years of military service, which included his post as a search-and-rescue pilot.

Prince William, wife Catherine and Prince George have released their latest family portraits. The royals unveiled two informal photographs of their new family on Monday via Kensington Palace.

The photos were taken by the former Kate Middleton's father Michael Middleton on the family estate in Bucklebury, England, in early August. That's where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are currently residing until they take up permanent residence in London's Kensington Palace.

It's a great day to be the Duchess of Cambridge. The former Kate Middleton is one of the brightest stars of the London Olympic Games, and she hasn't even broken a sweat. She has sailed to the top of Vanity Fair's international best-dressed list, which was announced Tuesday, and she is about to redecorate one of the world's most coveted pieces of real estate.  Here are few new things to know about the style icon, philanthropist and duchess: 1. She's a bona fide cover girl: While Kate and William previously appeared on a Vanity Fair cover ahead of their massively hyped April 2011 wedding, and she's enjoyed countless tabloid fronts and a rather bizarre Marie Claire outing, Kate is now featured on the cover of the September issue of Vanity Fair.
