Prince William

Is there anything Sir David Attenborough can't achieve? Probs not. He's an absolute legend and undisputed king of nature, as well as possessing one of the greatest narratorial voices of ALL TIME.

He's lending his voice to Netflix for their forthcoming natural history show (seems off-brand for them?) but now he'll be back on the BBC screens with a huge new programme.

The TV show will focus on the environmental forces reshaping our world, and is entitled One Planet, Seven Worlds. We can't wait for this.

One Planet, Seven Worlds will focus on an individual continent per episode, and uses cutting-edge technology to explore the characteristics of how the animals are affected by their habitat.

He is also appearing in Green Planet, which will look at the world from the plants' point of view in the global ecosystem.

Attenborough recently spoke to Prince William about today's environment, emphasising the fact that we are less in touch with nature than ever.

"We are one coherent ecosystem- it's not just a question of beauty or interest or wonder, it's the essential ingredient. The essential part of human life is a healthy planet," he said.

He urged politicians and business leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos to focus their attention on climate change, before it's too late; “the Garden of Eden is no more”.

Blue Planet II and Plastics Watch have both achieved massive success, so the new BBC One shows are hoping to spotlight the environment in the form of protection.

Three-quarters of a BILLION people worldwide watched Blue Planet I, which is mind-blowing. Some people see his new Netflix affiliation as a blow to the BBC, as streaming services take over.

He has worked with the BBC for over 60 years, so he most likely isn't ditching them.

The Netflix show is due out this April, while the BBC show will hopefully air in the autumn. Get yourselves and your metal straws ready, it's time to save the WORLD, people.

While rumours have been circling about a royal feud, nothing has been confirmed just yet.

Many tabloids have been spinning stories, saying that Harry and Meghan don’t get along with William and Kate.

But recent holiday revelations seems to be at odds with the alleged drama.

A royal source told The Sun that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex turned down Prince William and Kate’s offer to host them this Christmas.

However, Kensington Palace has spoken out in response, saying that this claim is untrue.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the palace said Prince William and Kate and Prince Harry and Meghan will be spending the holiday together.

But while it was confirmed that the fab four would spend the day together, the palace could not say whether they would continue the celebrations side-by-side or go there separate ways afterwards.

The happy couples spent last year’s Christmas together during which they reportedly had a fantastic time.

There is no doubt that the Queen is overjoyed to spend the holiday with her beloved grandsons and granddaughters-in-law.

Last month, Kate Middleton shut down the gossip when she gushed about Meghan and Harry’s baby.

It seems she is happier than ever for her sister-in-law and can’t wait to meet the family’s newest arrival.

“It’s such a special time to have little kiddies and a cousin for George, Charlotte and Louis,” Kate said.

“It’s really special.”

Kensington Palace wanted to make sure that the public were not misinformed and was eager to confirm the two couples were spending the holidays together.

So we will just have to wait and see how it all unfolds at Sandringham but for now, it appears there is no bad blood between the four.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have shared the sweetest photo of Prince George in honour of his fifth birthday.

Kensington Palace released the photograph on behalf of the parents last night.

They posted the cutest photo of George grinning like the Cheshire Cat- just look at that cheeky smile.

Isn’t he looking more and more like William as he grows up?

The new photo of Prince George was taken by photographer Matt Porteous.

It is understood that the snap was taken shortly after Prince Louis’ christening in the garden of Clarence House.

The future king will certainly be celebrating his fifth birthday in style. Rumour has it Kate and William have whisked the children off to the Caribbean.

The family are said to be holidaying in the exclusive island of Mustique with Kate’s family, including younger sister Pippa and her husband James Matthews.

Their chosen destination is extremely private with a no-fly zone over the island, and only 100 villas.

Kate and William certainly chose the perfect place for their summer break after the whirlwind year the royal family have had.

Some time away from the public and paparazzi is bound to do the family-of-five some good, especially as they celebrate George’s fifth birthday.

Happy fifth birthday to Prince George!

The siblings waved to the press and greeted the Archbishop as they entered the chapel.

The family-of-five were also joined by Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also attended the celebration. It is understood that the Duke of Sussex purchased a first edition of first-edition of AA Milne's Winnie-The-Pooh as a gift for the young prince.

Members of the Middleton family also attended the service, including Kate’s sister Pippa and Lucy Middleton, who was confirmed as one of Louis’ godmothers.

Two notable members of the royal family were missing from the christening service. Earlier today, it was announced that Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip would not be attending the christening of Prince Louis due to the monarch’s hectic schedule.

We got a glimpse of the new price when Kate and William stepped outside St. Mary's Hospital on April 23, 2018, and now, the Duke and Duchess have kindly released the first official photos of their darling son, and they are far too cute.

Kensington Palace shared the photos on behalf of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

They wrote, "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share two photographs of Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, taken by The Duchess at Kensington Palace."

As per tradition,  Kate took the photos herself at ‬Kensington Palace.

"This image of Prince Louis was taken by The Duchess of Cambridge at Kensington Palace on 26th April.‬ ‪The Duke and Duchess would like to thank members of the public for their kind messages following the birth of Prince Louis, and for Princess Charlotte’s third birthday.‬"

The parents also shared a stunning photo of Princess Charlotte kissing her baby brother's forehead as she holds him in her arms. The image was taken on Charlotte's third birthday, May 2, 2018.

It looks like Charlotte has taken to her new role as a big sister like a duck to water.

The young princess and her brother Prince George were the first to meet their newborn brother, after Prince William of course, when he was born on Monday, April 23.

Kate gave birth to her son at 11:01 am, with Louis weighing in at 8lbs 7oz.

Kate and William revealed that their son’s full name is Louis Arthur Charles.

Kensington Palace has confirmed that the new royal baby is named Prince Louis Arthur Charles.

The official title given to Will and Kate’s second son is His Royal Highest (HRH) Prince Louis Arthur Charles, and he will be fifth in line for the throne.

Louis may not come as a surprise as it has been embedded throughout royal history and has some very close family ties.

Prince Louis' name references his own father, Prince William, who holds the name as his middle name, along with Prince George.

The Baptism:

Royal babies are usually baptised within two or three months after their birth. Prince George was baptised in October 2013 and Princess Charlotte was in July 2015.

According to The Telegraph, royal babies tend to follow Queen Victoria’s tradition of being baptised over the Lily Front. Queen Victoria started the practice in 1841 with her eldest daughter Princess Victoria.

According to reports, six godparents were selected for Princess Charlotte and seven for Prince George. The water from the Jordan River is used in the ceremony.

Both Georges' and Charlotte’s services were held in private, but during Charlotte’s baptism, members of the public were welcomed to come to the churchyard.

It is reported that both Kate and Prince Louis are doing well and in a tweet, Kensington Palace thanked the hospital staff on Kate’s behalf.

Prince Louis was born on Monday at 11.01am and weighed in at 8lbs 7oz. The name Arthur was the bookmaker’s firm favourite with 9/4 odds.

Do you think the name Louis is a good fit for a prince?

There’s less than a month to go until the wedding of the year. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will tie the knot at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle on May 19.

We’ve been finding out all the wedding details as we inch closer and closer to Harry and Meghan’s big day.

We know what flowers the Suits actress will have in her bouquet, we know what the invites look like, we know what music they’ll have during the church ceremony, and now we finally know who will be Prince Harry’s best man.

Kensington Palace revealed that Prince William will be his best man at his wedding to Meghan Markle.

“Prince Harry has asked his brother The Duke of Cambridge to be his Best Man at his wedding to Ms. Meghan Markle,” Kensington Palace confirmed.

Harry served as best man to The Duke of Cambridge at his wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011.

William said he is honoured to be Harry’s best man, “The Duke of Cambridge is honoured to have been asked, and is very much looking forward to supporting his brother at St George's Chapel, Windsor on May 19th.”

Prince William recently spoke about how they grew close after the tragic death of their mum Princess Diana. “Our relationship is closer than it's been because of the situation we've been through. Losing our mother at a young age it's helped us travel through that difficult patch together,” William admitted.

The Duke of Cambridge explained that supporting one another through the grieving process strengthened their relationship, “You're like-minded. You go through similar things, it's a bond and it's something you know you've tackled together and come out better for it."

William was 15-years-old, and Harry was 12-years-old when Diana lost her life following a car crash in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel in Paris, in 1997.

Huge congratulations are in order as The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have welcomed their third child. Kate gave birth to a beautiful baby boy on April 23, 2018.

The mum-of-three delivered her little bundle of joy at the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital in London, where she also gave birth to Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Prince William and Prince Harry were also born at St. Mary’s Hospital.

Reports claim that the doting parents will reveal their son’s name in the coming days.

We are thrilled for Prince William and Kate. What a special time for the family-of-five.

It has been reported that Pippa Middleton is expecting her first child. The Sunday Express stated that The Duchess of Cambridge's sister has recently shared the joyous news with her family and friends.

A source told the Sunday Express, "When Pippa found out she was pregnant, she was obviously thrilled and utterly overjoyed."

Kate was the second person to find out about her sister's pregnancy. The source said that the soon to be mum-of-three "could not have been more delighted" for her younger sister.

“Naturally, big sister Kate and parents, Carole and Michael, were the first people she told — James aside — and they could not have been more delighted," they added.

Pippa and James tied the knot in the May of 2017. The source said that the couple have always wanted to have children, "They have made the most of their first few months of marriage and felt the time was right to expand their family.”

It is understood that Pippa will welcome her first child in the autumn time.

Huge congratulations to Pippa and James!

We all know that royal life is steeped in tradition, from the way they celebrate Christmas to how they announce the birth of a new family member.

Of course, much of that custom comes into play when it comes to the upcoming nuptials of Prince Harry and his bride-to-be, Meghan Markle.

One particular tradition means that Prince Harry can't technically pick William to be his best man.

In fact, Harry won't have a best man at all.

Instead, he, like past royal grooms, will choose 'supporters'.

"The 'best man' or 'best men' are officially called 'supporters'," British and European royalty expert Marlene Koenig explained to Town & Country, "William will probably be Harry's supporter."

Back in 1981, Prince Charles chose his brothers, Andrew and Edward, to be his supporters when the Prince of Wales married Diana.

The Duke of Cambridge, however, broke with tradition when he dubbed Harry his best man, according to The Guardian.

As far as we know, William has not been asked to be his younger brother's supporter or best man – yet.

Considering Harry's tendency to break with tradition, we could see the 33-year-old potentially calling his brother his best man if he chooses Will.

The two are so close it seems likely that Harry will pick his big brother to be there by his side as he marries the love of his life.

Either way, we can't wait until the big day! May 19, here we come!
