Lucky.

That's all we can say about a report from NBC's Today Show, which discussed what Prince William is going to get Kate Middleton for Christmas, [and] said "the general consensus at this point is that the Duchess of Cambridge is getting a puppy."

Gives new meaning to ruffing it with the in-laws, are we right?!

In August, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla adopted a Jack Russell Terrier named Beth from Battersea Dogs Home in London. Queen Elizabeth II is also an animal lover.

Kate Middleton, 29, will spend her first Christmas as a royal with William, also 29, and his entire family at Sandringham manor, the queen's retreat in Norfolk, England.

The royal newlyweds will be joined by Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton, of course, and a little later in the week, they'll spend time with the Middleton family at their residence.

And their newfound four-legged friend, of course. Aww.

With the days remaining in 2011 becoming fewer every 24 hours, it's time to raise a glass to the year that was - and the stars that made the past 12 months so great.

At THG, we're doing that by counting down the 10 most newsworthy celebrities of 2011. First, there was the arresting centerfold Lindsay Lohan at #10. What a mess!

Jennifer Lopez came in at #9, Selena Gomez at #8 and a batch of hilarious viral video stars at#7 spot Katy Perry and Justin Bieber were #6 and #5, respectively.

Now, at #4, we salute ... the new generation of the British Royal Family!

Official Royal Wedding Portrait

Approximately a billion people watched Prince William marry Kate Middleton April 29. A billion. More than 36 million watched in the U.S., where they don't even live. 72 million streamed the Royal Wedding live on just YouTube!

It was a big deal is what we're saying.

In these troubled times mired by financial duress, armed conflict, natural disasters and a growing sense of uncertainty, the world looked to the matrimony of two wonderful young people - true class acts - as a respite from its daily struggles.

That's a lot of weight on William and Kate's shoulders, but they handled it as well as any 29-year-olds could. Their exchange of vows was as celebrated as any in history.

In case you thought Kate Middleton got any less stylish over the past few months, you were mistaken! Not that anyone in their right mind would think that. Anyway.

The Duchess of Cambridge turned heads this weekend at London's annual military awards show designed to recognize servicemen and women throughout the UK.

The 29-year-old wife of Prince William wore a beautiful black Alexander McQueen gown as she and husband William attended "A Night of Heroes." Take a look ...

Yes, that is Prince Harry creeping in the background.

The gown, which appeared to be strapless and black velvet, was accessorized with sparkly earrings and a necklace that she reportedly received as royal wedding gifts.

Kate's wedding dress, of course, was designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. The girl definitely has her favorites ... and exquisite taste, if you ask us.

Wills, meanwhile, looked dapper in a classic black tux at the event, part of a busy week for the couple, who will spend Christmas at the palace and with her family.

All in all, they make Britain proud with each public appearance. Check out our gallery of Kate Middleton pictures for more fashion highlights from the past year!

Her parents aren't invited.

Us Weekly makes this stunning declaration on the cover of its new issue, which features an older photo of a happy Prince William and Kate Middleton on the cover.

The gist of the non-story: The Duchess will spend her very first Christmas weekend with her husband and the entire royal family at Queen Elizabeth's retreat.

Her parents have not been invited. Scandalous, right? Not really, as William will visit with Kate, Pippa Middleton and their parents before and after Christmas.

Kate Middleton pregnancy rumors take a back seat ... for one week!

The princess will "quickly learn that this is not like any Christmas she has had," a royal source says, but is that any different from any newly-married woman or man?

In-laws. Can't live with 'em, pass the egg nog.

There are some challenges unique to Kate Middleton, however. The fashion icon is expected to change up to five times a day for formal meals, black-tie cocktail parties, church services and gift exchanges (novelty presents are encouraged).

She also has to hide her baby bump.

Just kidding. You didn't think we could go a whole article without a reference to the ongoing Kate Middleton pregnancy rumors, did you? We should hope not.

After a brief hiatus, the rumor mill once again is buzzing with reports that Prince William got Kate Middleton pregnant with the future heir(ess) to the throne.

The reason for the most recent speculation? A conspicuous clutch!

When Kate joined her in-laws at a concert at Royal Albert Hall benefiting the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry and the Prince's Trust, all eyes were on the Duchess ... specifically her lower belly region, which was covered up! OMG!

Kate Middleton, Clutch

Like the entire cast of Grey's Anatomy holding pillows and plates of food and sitting down a lot and being shown from the neck up, Kate is OBVIOUSLY pregnant, right?

Not so fast.

Middleton cinched a $99 lace-accented Zara sheath (which is already sold out, naturally) with a wide black belt, but when Kate was holding her purse off to the side, instead of in front, her waistline looked as tiny as always.

So ... that's pretty much that.

The ever-stylish princess also wore a black Ralph Lauren jacket, black tights and heels, BTW. She's very pretty and was recently named Britain's Best Dressed.

Kate Middleton and Prince William will spend the holidays together with both of their families, and her sister Pippa will be invited to the royals' Boxing Day retreat, to boot!

The 29-year-old Duke and Duchess will spend the actual holiday with William's family, but the entire week before will be spent with her sister Pippa and the Middletons.

Pippa, 27, will then join her big sister for Boxing Day (Dec. 26) in Sandringham, Norfolk, where the royals hold an annual pheasant hunting competition. Lock and load!

  • Kate Middleton, Figure
  • So Pip

"It will be the first Christmas Catherine is away from her family, so having Pippa come on Boxing Day is just part of making [Kate] feel comfortable and for her to share the holiday with her own family," an insider said. "It's something William wanted."

Nice guy, that Will.

Kate, William and Pippa "will then all travel together back to Bucklebury and spend the remaining days of Christmas with the other Middleton family members."

In early 2012, William will be deployed to the Falkland Islands for six weeks. He'll join a Royal Air Force crew as part of his training as a Search and Rescue pilot.

Hopefully Pip can keep Kate Middleton company then, as well.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry are joining forces in their official new roles as ambassadors to the British Olympic and Paralympic teams.

Sadly, Pippa Middleton is not royalty and thus, will not be participating along with the aforementioned, adorable trio. She remains royally cute, however.

The Royals are part of a group of 27 other ambassadors named from among Britain's most inspirational and accomplished Olympians from previous games.

  • Wills
  • Kate Middleton, Hat
  • Ginger

In the cuteness department, team Great Britain has already won gold.

"Catherine, Harry and I are honored" and "hugely looking forward to an incredible sporting competition, but are also looking beyond next summer's games to the springboard it will provide for future success and excellence," William said in a statement.

"London hosting the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games will inspire so many people – particularly the young – to be the best they can be," he added.

Kate Middleton was dubbed the "People's Princess" earlier this year when she became the first commoner to marry an heir to the British throne in centuries.

On Gossip Girl, Blair Waldorf (played by Leighton Meester) is getting ready to do the same on January 30, as she is engaged to Louis, the Prince of Monaco.

Meester was seen on the street filming in her wedding dress ... a runaway bride perhaps? Or filming a dream sequence? Impossible to say for another two months.

What you can say now is whether Gossip Girl fashion compares to the real deal! Whose wedding dress do you like better, Kate's or Blair's? Vote below!
