It's not that Pippa Middleton outshone her sister Kate Middleton at the 2011 royal wedding, but it's safe to say the younger Middleton became an overnight celebrity thanks to her curve-hugging bridesmaid gown and buoyant bum. Prince William and Catherine's royal wedding was the talk of 2011, and the globally viewed nuptials helped launch Pippa Middleton, now 30, to international stardom after the ivory-clad maid of honor bent down to tend to...

Zara Phillips' newborn daughter has a name now: It's Mia Grace Tindall. Still, the Ministry was partial to "the other royal baby. " Phillips, 32, Prince William's cousin and granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, welcomed the tiny royal on Jan. 17, but she and her husband, retired rugby star Mike Tindall, said they would release the name "in due course," according to Buckingham Palace.  On Thursday, Tindall, 35, shared the name on...

I wish Diana, the Princess of Wales, were around to see the royal wedding of her son, Prince William, to Kate Middleton. Mostly because I just wish Diana were still around. Those of us who are of her generation already went through this ritual once — the early rising or late-staying-up to watch her wedding 30 years ago, the one that turned out to be a fairy tale without a happy ending. We saw the signs but, like Diana herself, tried to ignore them. We remember the way she smiled so expectantly and hopefully at Charles on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after the wedding.

I admit it: I love Kate Middleton. I love that she defied the usual dating advice and waited years for her prince to come around. I love that she's a commoner but still wears those outrageous feathered hats. Most of all, I love that the hats are the most remarkable thing about her. Pretty without being distractingly gorgeous, fashionable without pushing boundaries, reserved without being shy, Catherine Elizabeth Middleton doesn't have even a fraction of the tragic mystique of Diana, Princess of Wales.

If you don't want to be alone while watching the royal wedding festivities in Britain , scheduled to begin in London about 2:30 a.m. PDT Friday, take heart. There are plenty of teas and parties in Southern California where you can watch Prince William and Kate Middleton tie the knot -- over and over again, if you like. But seats are filling quickly. At the Cat & Fiddle pub in Los Angeles, manager Andy Perkins had envisioned a little wee-hours gathering for a real-time wedding celebration.

If a single prince is in want of a wife, no one puts on a better show than the British when he finally gets one. That truth was universally acknowledged Friday when William Arthur Philip Louis Mountbatten-Windsor, second in line to the British throne, married Catherine Elizabeth Middleton, his college sweetheart, in a ceremony dripping with tradition and sparkly jewels. The couple exchanged vows in the soaring Gothic interior of Westminster Abbey before 1,900 guests, including more than 40 crowned heads and scores of dignitaries and celebrities.

If things continue as they are and Britain's Prince Charles succeeds his mother to reign as king until his death at a ripe old age, then sometime around 2040 the young couple getting married in Westminster Abbey on Friday will be King William V and Queen Catherine. By sheer accident of birth, William will then be the head of state of whatever is left of today's United Kingdom. Would that be all right? My answer is: In theory, no; in practice, probably yes. If William and Kate behave themselves, unlike some of the gamier members of Britain's royal family, and contribute to the development of a modernized, slimmed-down constitutional monarchy, this can actually be better than the likely alternatives.

Prince Harry is heading south - way down south. To the South Pole, in fact. And he's walking a good part of the way. The prince will join the Walking With the Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge in November and December, he said at a news conference Friday. The 208-mile journey will be undertaken by three teams: U.S., Britain and the Commonwealth. The trek grew from humble beginnings, with four founders only three years ago, Harry said. This time around, teams will be "racing each other to the bottom of the world," the royal serviceman said,  "though we're not allowed to officially call it a race, But I think we all know what will happen.

LONDON - Ironic detachment may be the guiding principle of acceptable behavior in Britain, but Hannah Prince is having none of it. British flag in hand, the 21-year-old university student traveled to London from western England to attend the Olympics with her boyfriend, both of them ready to cheer their hearts out for "Team GB" with no trace of self-consciousness. "We're a lot more reserved than other nations, whereas Americans will wave their flags at anything. We should do more of it," Prince said.

On a recent trip to Britain, what struck me most about that country's relationship with its sovereign wasn't the usual commercial tributes - the cheap china stamped with the queen's likeness, the tabloid stories about the royal family and such rot - but the genuine devotion modern Britons seem to have for Elizabeth II. And judging by Americans' fascination with events such as the recent royal wedding and the queen's Diamond Jubilee celebration (a...

Was it only a year ago that sparkling commoner Kate Middleton ascended the ranks of the British royal family, marrying Prince William in a global media frenzy?  It hardly feels like it, but the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will reach 12 months of wedded bliss come April 29, and the Ministry has some exclusive video to help you celebrate. "William & Kate: One Year Later," which airs on TLC this Sunday, recaps a whirlwind year that includes a secluded honeymoon, a revving up of royal duties, tours of Canada and Southern California and a bit of nesting in Anglesey, North Wales.

Mazel tov, England. As your former suburb, we just want you to know how enchanted we are with what's happening over there right now between William and Catherine (a.k.a. Kate). We hear there'll be some sort of ceremony soon. The world will pause. Hearts will flutter. I'll eat a turtle dove -- extra fries. For a moment, the British Empire will shine once more. And, through it all, America will have wedding envy. What's wedding envy? That's when someone has a bigger wedding than yours.

Royal weddings are like London buses: You wait ages, and then two come along at the same time. Weeks after Britons thronged the streets for the fairytale marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the tiny European principality of Monaco got the chance to celebrate its own magical ending to a royal romance (even if it had a bit of a rough patch before the happily-ever-after moment). On Friday, the Mediterranean playground for the rich and famous turned out for what was perhaps unkindly nicknamed the "other wedding," as Monaco's Prince Albert II married Charlene Wittstock of South Africa in a civil ceremony at the royal palace, with a church wedding to follow Saturday.

When the big day came, and it came Thursday, the other royal wedding of the year — this one in far-off, remote Bhutan — adopted a distinctly different tone. In sharp contrast to the nuptials of Britain's Prince William and Catherine Middleton, there were no star-studded celebrities, self-important film stars, fidgeting foreign royals or a long wedding dress train to trip over. The theme in Bhutan was "of the people," which is a lot easier when your country has a population of 700,000, almost all of whom were in overdrive as the popular fifth "Dragon King" married a 21-year-old student, the daughter of an airline pilot.
