Prince William and Kate Middleton will mark their first wedding anniversary April 29, but don't expect them to be announcing any baby news then.

As Kate Middleton pregnancy rumors run rampant, again, an insider close to the couple confirms that the Duchess is not expecting a bundle of joy.

"Kate is not pregnant or about to make a pregnancy announcement," the royal insider explained of Middleton, who has been dogged by this for a year.

The most significant round of pregnancy rumors surfaced back in November when she refused peanut paste on a visit to Denmark. Turns out she was not pregnant.

Though there isn't any baby news, the royal couple does have something to celebrate. William is back from his six-week deployment off the coast of Argentina.

Shortly after Wills reunited with his bride, the duo headed off with her parents, Carole and Michael, and her siblings, James and Pippa Middleton, for a ski trip.

Says an eyewitness of the group, who opted to share the same chalet: "They looked very happy together." We would expect nothing less from the royals.

Is Angelina Jolie thinking about producing, directing and/or even starring in a royal family biopic? With the lovely Kate Middleton as the centerpiece?

The leg-thrusting Oscar winner is apparently obsessed with the royal family, keeping a framed photo of William and Kate at her French chateau!

That's the rumor anyway, and her interest goes beyond simple admiration.

  • Dazzling Duchess

Bowled over by the royal couple's "kindness and sincerity," Angie is even thinking about trying to get a Kate Middleton biopic made, sources say.

"Angelina's fascinated by her and her wonderful aura," says an insider.

"She loves her look and common touch and says she and William radiate kindness and sincerity, something increasingly rare in this day and age."

Who would play William and Kate on film? Angelina does not seem like the best choice, actress-wise, though she might be fine as the director.

Prince William and Kate Middleton, now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, are headed back to the balcony that saw the kiss seen 'round the world.

When they stepped out onto the balcony of Buckingham Palace last April 29 as husband and wife and kissed for the first time, it was a magic moment.

Soon, the royals are set to return to that location in honor of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee anniversary marking her 60-year reign, on June 5.

Prior, the family will attend a service at St Paul's Cathedral followed by two receptions, a lunch at Westminster Hall and a carriage procession to Buckingham Palace.

Somehow we doubt William and Kate will upstage his grandmother with another kiss, but the royal wedding was a day many in the UK will remember.

Taking the moment up a notch, after the much-anticipated public display of affection, a Royal Air Force flyover took to the skies to seal the spectacle.

The Queen at least deserves that.

Kate Middleton delivered her inaugural public speech as a member of the royal family on Monday, addressing a crowd at a charitable organization she supports.

The Duchess of Cambridge, donning a blue-belted Reiss dress, gave her remarks at the opening of the Treehouse at the East Anglia Children's Hospice.

Keeping it short and sweet, Kate delivered her remarks to a small group at the Hospice center, where she recently became a patron. Watch her below:

Calm, collected and stately throughout, Kate Middleton praised the center and centers like it for their tireless efforts and the inspiration they provide.

Kate, whose public profile has grown dramatically in recent weeks with husband Prince William away on military duty, referenced her far-away spouse.

"I'm only sorry that William can't be here today," she said, drawing laughs.

"He would love it here. A view of his that I share is that through teamwork, so much can be achieved. What you have all achieved here is extraordinary."

"What you do is inspirational. The feelings you inspire, feelings of love and of hope, offer a chance to families to live a life they never thought could be possible."

What do you think? How did Kate do?

Now that's St. Patrick's Day fashion done right.

Kate Middleton continued run of recent royal festivities with her husband away on military duty in the Falkland Islands as she set out to Aldershot, England, to greet and charm the Irish guards on Saturday, March 17.

Here's one of our favorite Kate Middleton photos from the event:

Clad in an emerald coat dress cinched at the waist, the lovely Kate accessorized with a brown cap, matching pumps, and a bloom of shamrocks on to her lapel.

Kate Middleton also donned a clover pin that once belonged to The Queen Mother, Prince William's great-grandmother, who passed away in 2002.

After presenting soldiers with a basket of shamrocks (a tradition dating back to 1901), the 30-year-old got into the spirit with a sip of Harvey's Bristol Creme sherry.

Her outing also included adorning the Regimental mascot Clonmel (a black dog) with a shamrock on his collar. All in a day's work for the Duchess!

With Princes Harry (Brazil) and Prince William (the Falklands) otherwise occupied, it fell to Kate Middleton to help ramp up the excitement as the ambassador of the 2012 London Olympics during a private visit to the city's Olympic Park.

Did she ever. She worked out with Team Great Britain's field hockey squad!

Having played the sport herself (and even serving as her school's captain), the ever-game Duchess wasted no time joining in with the ladies. So how'd she do?

As with everything else, Kate Middleton proved herself to be a total natural.

"I was really looking forward to coming here, but now I am here and have discovered I have to play," she told the men's and women's teams beforehand.

"I am not feeling confident. The last time I played was 2005, maybe. It feels like I haven't held a stick for 10 years. This is going to be so embarrassing."

"My brain thinks I can do these things, but my body doesn't play ball. Oh, please don't tell me I have to do it in front of all these people!" she joked.

Kate missed the first three of her goal attempts, but ultimately scored a goal - to rapturous applause from all players and observers, of course.

Middleton swapped her blazer and heels for a gray Team GB sweatshirt, coral jeans and Adidas sneakers. She looks great in both ensembles, no?

Absence has made Kate Middleton's heart grow fonder.

With her husband off in the Falkland Islands on military duty, the Duchess of Cambridge confessed she has been "missing him terribly," but is keeping busy.

Among several successful solo engagements, Kate held her own for the first time as a member of the royal family, celebrating with Queen Elizabeth herself and the Duke of Edinburgh, as the family kicked off the Queen's Diamond Jubilee tour.

Kate isn't entirely alone with William in the Falklands. She has also had special company to keep her from being lonely in recent days: her new puppy, Lupo.

"I've got a dog keeping me occupied," the Duchess told interfaith worker Riaz Ravat at a lunch in Leicester. "I'm getting a lot of me time with the dog!"

Lupo, an adorable black cocker spaniel puppy that the pair adopted over the holidays, recently accompanied Kate on a walk through Kensington Gardens.

When it came to naming their brand new puppy, royal newlyweds Prince William and Kate Middleton decided to go a traditional, sophisticated route.

Standard operating procedure for a Duke and Duchess.

Kate Middleton let their closely guarded secret slip when talking to a group of school children at Rose Hill Primary School Tuesday: Its name is Lupo!

The cocker spaniel's moniker means 'wolf' in Italian.

Prince William, Kate Middleton, Puppy

Why the name Lupo? "There is no significance in it apart from they liked the name," a royal aide told the U.K. Daily Mail shortly after Kate spilled the beans.

Adopting the puppy in January, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge first met the canine over the Christmas holiday with her parents in Bucklebury, England.

"He belongs to a litter of spaniels from one of Carole Middleton's friends near home," a Palace aide said earlier this month when confirming Lupo's origin.

Late last year, Kate and William reportedly took the small canine companion home for a brief fostering period before making the adoption official.

"William and Catherine fell in love with the pup instantly and it wasn't long before they decided to keep him, officially, in their family," the source says.
