Gone are the days when Queen Elizabeth II could control something. Not that she ever had any real power in the political sense, but she ruled her family!

While Kate Middleton and Europe's longest-reigning ruler seem to get along, she has been at war with Queen Elizabeth over Prince William's future.

Or so the tabloids would have us believe. And now, according to one celebrity gossip source, Kate has won a DECISIVE victory in this ongoing battle:

Kate Middleton, Queen Elizabeth Too

The two are peacing out of the palace in London and relocating for his new job as an air ambulance pilot, defying his regal grandmother's wishes.

Supposedly. The East Anglian Air Ambulance is much closer to Anmer Hall, where they'll be living, than to London, so in a sense this is a non-issue.

Nothing is a non-issue in this family, though, and depending on what you read, this move was either a minor issue or a huge one for Queen Elizaeth II.

Kate Middleton and William living at Kensington Palace made it fairly easy for Her Royal Majesty to try and bully them, according to a royal source.

Kate Middleton and Prince William's grandmother, HRM Queen Elizabeth, may seem like they enjoy a kind, cordial relationship, but not the case, says one tabloid.

The two are actually at war. AT WAR!! And Kate has the upper hand!

  • Kate Middleton AT WAR!
  • Kate Middleton, Queen Elizabeth

One wouldn't think that with all the Kate Middleton baby bump speculation, a tabloid would focus on a fake beef with an 88-year-old, but we digress.

While this supposed feud between a one-time commoner and one of the longest-reigning monarchs in the history of Europe is FAR from over, Kate is winning.

According to Life & Style, the Duchess scored "her biggest victory yet” over her elderly foe by convincing Prince William to move out of Kensington Palace.

Their family is off to the countryside. The Queen is supposedly very unhappy ... even though she actually gave the couple the estate they will be relocating to.

To be closer to William's job as a pilot. But who's counting.

Says the alleged, anonymous, all-knowing palace source:

There are some impressive skills on display at the 2014 Commonwealth Games currently underway in Glasgow.

But for all the young athletes at the height of their talent, no one has been more awe-inspiring than 88-year-old Queen Elizabeth II, who proved today that she's not only the Queen of England, she's also the Queen of the Photobomb.

Queen Elizabeth II Photobomb!
Queen Elizabeth II sneaks up some Aussie athletes. That's why they call the Queen.

That's the Queen getting stealthy on the selfies of two Australian field hockey players.

While that's the shot that went viral, it's not the only photo from the Games to feature Her Highness making a surprise royal cameo.

As far as we can tell, Liz II pretty much spent the day taking in some cricket and milling about with the crowd. Mighty bold, considering we're pretty sure if someone steals her hat, they takeover the throne. (We slept through European history.)

We learned last week that Queen Elizabeth II planned to tour the Game of Thrones set while visiting Belfast, thus making her the most badass monarch since Daenerys Targaryen.

That visit finally took place yesterday, providing us with the unforgettable images of the Queen shaking hands with Jon Snow and scoping out the Iron Throne:

Sadly, Her Majesty didn't take a seat on the Throne, which leads us to believe that either she's heard all the talk about how uncomfortable it is, or she knew that if anyone took a picture it would literally cause the Internet to explode.

Don't worry. The Queen's visit included some awesome moments nonetheless:

Westeros is about to get a visit from some real-life royalty.

According to her official Twitter page, Queen Elizabeth II is such a fan of HBO's most popular series that she's arranged to visit the Game of Thrones set during the filming of season 5.

  • Queen Elizabeth Picture
  • Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen Image

"As part of the visit to Northern Ireland, The Queen and The Duke will visit the @GameOfThrones set in the Titanic quarter," says the Royal Tweet.

Of course, we're just speculating that Liz II is a fan (because how could anyone not be?!), but we actually have no idea if the 88-year-old monarch has ever seen the series.

We imagine some of the horse-heart-eating, head-smushing shenanigans might but her off her crumpets.

Is Prince Charles NEVER going to get his day to rule?

Sources tell the Globe that Queen Elizabeth is going to skip over her son and his wife Camilla entirely when she gives up the throne.

They report coronation plans for Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton are already in motion, set to take place in June 2015.

Globe Cover March 24 2014

I'm not going to say I think Globe is totally making this up - in the world of the British royals almost nothing would surprise me - but they're probably making this up.

Passing over a legitimate heir for no actual reason is basically unheard of.

Abdicating? Fine. But that would be up to Prince Charles and would probably cause a huge scandal. The royals will do ANYTHING to avoid a scandal.

I think it's more likely QEII will just REFUSE to die until after Prince Charles kicks it, so never does become king. Poor guy.

Maybe Globe is just hoping everyone forgets this cover by June 2015 when no coronation happens?

It's not like the tabloids are known for their reliability. Check out these 24 hilariously untrue celebrity gossip magazine covers:

Kate Middleton has apparently been instructed by Her Royal Majesty herself, Queen Elizabeth II, to wear longer skirts. Yes, this is a real thing that happened.

Royal correspondent Katie Nicholl reports in the Mail on Sunday (via Vanity Fair) that the Queen has issued some directives as to how Kate should dress.

This applies to when she tours Australia in April, not on a daily basis or anything ... but still, expect longer skirts in April's Kate Middleton photos.

As per the Queen's request, the hemlines will be longer, the jewelry will be bolder, and there will be more tiaras than you can count. Sounds awesome?

In order to execute this “subtle but significant regal makeover,” as the Mail calls it, the Queen tasked her personal dresser, Angela Kelly, with preparing Kate.

The overhaul will see Kate wearing couture daytime dresses with “lower hemlines” than she typically goes for, as well as tiaras and “statement jewelry.”

Queen Elizabeth II spoke about her precious great-grandson, royal baby, Prince George, in reflecting on the past year during her annual Christmas speech.

"Here at home, my own family it is a little larger this Christmas," the 87-year-old monarch said in a video message recorded at Buckingham Palace.

"As so many of you will know, the arrival of a baby gives everyone the chance to contemplate the future, with renewed happiness and hope," the Queen said.

"For the new parents, life will never be quite the same again."

The speech features never before seen footage of Prince George taken after his christening as four generations of royals posed for the official portraits.

The Queen said the christening was a "happy occasion."

For Prince William and Kate Middleton, life will never be the same indeed. In a good way. The new parents seem like naturals and happy as ever.

Taken in the Morning Room at Clarence House following Prince George's christening Wednesday, the infant takes center stage throughout the series.

His always fashionable mom (follow the link for a Kate Middleton fashion breakdown) steals the show as well. And William's alright too. Just kidding.

In another photo, Queen Elizabeth II, 87, poses with her three heirs in son Prince Charles, 64, grandson Prince William, 31, and 3-month-old Prince George.
