Newly-married Kate Middleton and Prince William were greeted by huge crowds - and questions about their future family - in Canada this weekend.

While touring Quebec City, Kate was presented with a bouquet by a young admirer named Raffaela, 2, who was with her father David Cheater, 28.

Like many others, Cheater waited hours with his daughter to see the royal couple, who attended a ceremony honoring Canada's Royal 22nd Regiment.

"Kate said to me, 'What a beautiful daughter you have,'" he said after The Duchess laid her hand on the youngster's head and smiled at the little girl.

He added: "When I said to her I wished her and William well with starting their own family, she said, 'Yes, I hope to.'" So when will Kate get pregnant?

She didn't say, but watching them outside City Hall - where Prince William delivered a short speech entirely in French - they look quite smitten.

Seriously, Newsweek? We know sales have been abysmal and you were on the verge of going under a few months ago, but this seems like an extreme way to generate headlines.

The latest issue of this magazine features a digitally-altered photo of Princess Diana, imaging what she would look like at age 50, and places it alongside Kate Middleton, as if the two are old pals out for a stroll.

It's an eerie attempt to bring the dead back to life, and to put even more pressure on the beautiful head of Prince William's bride than already exists.

Newsweek Cover

Editor Tina Brown, who penned the cover story, says of her vision of Diana:

“There is no doubt she would have kept her chin taut with strategic Botox shots and her bare arms buff from the gym. Remarriage? At least two, I suspect, on both sides of the Atlantic.”

Hypothesizing about what this icon would be doing if tragedy hadn't struck in 1997? Juxtaposing a photoshopped version of her on the sidewalk with Middleton? Do you find this blatant attention-grab to be in poor taste?

Days before embarking on their first North American tour, Prince William and Kate Middleton relaxed a little on Monday with a visit to Wimbledon.

The couple were greeted with an enthusiastic ovation as they took their seats in the front row of - where else - the Royal Box at Centre Court.

William and Kate, who fittingly wore a white Temperley London dress to the most traditional of tennis contests, blushed a little at the adulation:

Love-Love

The Duke and Duchess at Centre Court.

A spokesman at St. James's Palace said the couple, who honored UK troops at an event over the weekend, were at the sporting event "privately."

Kate Middleton loves tennis and plays regularly, having visited Wimbledon a number of times. William has been going to the event since he was a child.

They were in their seats around 1 p.m. in time to support the UK's own Andy Murray in his match against France's Richard Gasquet in the Round of 16.

Murray won. So did fans who got a glimpse of these adorable lovebirds.

Keeping up with their royal duties, Prince William and Kate Middleton paid tribute to UK servicemen and women Saturday on Britain's Armed Forces Day.

The Duke and Duchess were originally scheduled to spend 30 minutes with the guardsmen at William's first event as Colonel-in-Chief of the Irish Guards.

However, Will and Kate presented Afghanistan campaign medals to members of the Irish Guards and honored soldiers and their families for over an hour.

William (with spouse Catherine) is a handsome man in uniform.

Prince William, who is the honorary colonel of the unit, also presented the Elizabeth Cross to families of three fallen servicemen in a private ceremony.

"I am proud to be your colonel," William told the guardsmen. "I am humbled by the thought of the sacrifices that you and your families have made and the losses you suffered, all in the service of our country."

Naturally, Kate Middleton helped her man honor them in style, donning a simple fascinator paired with a chic navy blue coat dress and matching heels.

More than $1.6 million has reportedly been donated to a gift fund set up by Prince William and Kate Middleton ahead of their April 29 wedding.

The Royal Wedding Charitable Gift Fund was set up so that anyone who wished to give the couple a wedding gift could instead make a donation to charities chosen by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The figure includes direct donations to the chosen charities along with money raised from the sale of an official royal wedding CD and donations made by Mario Testino's office from the sales of the wedding program portrait.

The Prince and His Lovely Wife

Officials said earlier this week that the money will be distributed to 26 charities chosen by the newlyweds, which were grouped into particular areas.

Changing Lives through Arts and Sport. Children Fulfilling Their Potential. Help and Care at Home. Support for Service Personnel and Their Families, and Conservation for Future Generations are all causes supported by the couple.

Some charities are based in Australia, New Zealand and Canada, where William and Kate are making their first official overseas trip next month.

In a typically classy gesture, the couple had requested that wedding guests and the public make donations to the fund rather than buy gifts.

Prince William and Kate Middleton's excursion to the U.S. isn't their only stop in North America. They'll be visiting our neighbors to the north too, eh!

After spending June 30-July 2 in Ottawa, Ontario, Gatineau, and Montreal, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will head to Quebec City on July 3.

The 29-year-old newlyweds (yesterday was William's birthday) will work with Maison Dauphin, an organization that works with homeless youths.

The Quebec group's mission ties in closely with William's Patronage of Centrepoint, a homelessness charity, back home in the United Kingdom.

The Duke, Duchess of Cambridge

Later that day, the royally cute British couple will be attending a community event at Fort-de-Levis to mark some of the region's important milestones.

A rep from the Department of Canadian Heritage says the nation hopes William and Kate will "regard Canada as a second home - a term of endearment often used by The Queen to describe her special affection for and pride in this country."

Following that, America beckons. Excitedly, at that. After stops in Prince Edward Island, Alberta and the Northwest Territories, they arrive in California July 8.

To stay looking gorgeous at all times and in all settings, Kate Middleton is rumored to be packing 40 outfits for the North American trip.

That's a lot of Fashion Face-Off potential!

As if there weren't enough reasons to love Kate Middleton, she's decided to ditch plans to hire a personal housekeeper and dresser, reports say.

All in the name of living royal - and married - life more simply.

She was planning to hire a joint housekeeper and dresser to serve her and Prince William in their home, but recently jettisoned those plans.

Her reasoning? She just doesn't feel she needs one.

A Beautiful Bride

The couple's private secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, told reporters the household will be reassessing what's needed toward the end of the year.

After their engagement and the royal wedding in April, William and Kate's lives were in a "time of flux," he said. Now, the royal family is working on developing the "infrastructures we need to support a young couple."

Kate Middleton will be taking hairdresser James Pryce with her on a visit to California as part of a modest entourage. Two press secretaries, Lowther-Pinkerton and an assistant private secretary will also join the newlyweds.

Vanity Fair planned to feature Justin Timberlake on its cover in July, only to shift gears and opt for a candid photo of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

To be fair, the never-before-seen Mario Testino shot of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is adorable. Just look at the royal couple. But no love for JT!

Fortunately, the Timberlake story still appears as a feature inside ...

Royal Vanity Fair Cover

A VF rep had no comment on the cover change, but a source close to Timberlake says the singer was "very happy with Vanessa's story and Mr. Roy's photos."

Their siblings also appeared on a magazine cover this week, although for no reason we can pinpoint other than Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton being cute.

Not that we're complaining. Contrived tabloid nonsense, perhaps, but at least it's tabloid nonsense about seemingly nice, scandal-free people for a change.

Besides, Kate Middleton pictures and fashion choices are gorgeous.

Not that we're complaining.
