We know she's got this big wedding thing coming up and all, but is Kate Middleton - looking very slender in a black dress and tan heels yesterday - getting too thin?

A little more than one week to go before she marries Prince William on April 29, Kate stepped out for some last-minute shopping on London's King's Road.

What do you think? Shedding for the wedding or going overboard?

  • Thin Kate Middleton
  • Kate Middleton: Too Thin?

Personally, we think Kate still looks fabulous.

Whatever she weighs, when she walks into Westminster Abbey, she should be looking radiant in her wedding dress, reportedly designed by Sophie Cranston.

In the meantime, the princess-to-be has been on a shopping spree, buying around $350 worth of items – possibly for her honeymoon? – from Warehouse.

One of many burning Royal Wedding questions ever since Kate Middleton and Prince William got engaged has been who will design the bride's dress.

Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood have been rumored, but their modern aesthetics may not be appropriate for the regal, April 29 affair.

Now, several news outlets are reporting that Kate Middleton has settled upon Sophie Cranston, a 34-year-old who previously worked for McQueen.

Sophie worked with the late fashion icon before branching out with her own Libélula studio. You can see some of Cranston's wedding dress designs here.

Interest in her work has been so great in the 24 hours since this rumor surfaced that the Libélula website crashed, according to the label's press contact.

Visitors are now greeted with a message that reads: Due to our recent press coverage the site has received overwhelming traffic, causing technical issues.

True or not, the bride should look stunning 10 days from now. Whether or not she and Wills enter with this Royal Wedding Dance, however, is uncertain.

You can blame those newlyweds walking down the aisle to Chris Brown - or thank them, depending on your point of view - for this Royal Wedding tribute.

T-Mobile has released a Royal Wedding entrance dance video starring a faux Prince William, Kate Middleton, Queen Elizabeth, Camilla, Prince Charles et al.

William and Kate don't wed for another 11 days, and will likely enter more formally, but these lookalikes have already danced their way into our hearts.

Everybody! Everybody in the house of love ...

Just 12 days to go.

Set to marry Prince William in front of pretty much the whole world on April 29, Kate Middleton took part in her first rehearsal at London's Westminster Abbey.

A Clarence House spokesman confirms that a royal wedding rehearsal took place at the famed cathedral on Friday, with the lovely bride-to-be on hand.

Royally Pretty

Prince Harry, Kate's sister (and maid of honor) Pippa Middleton and her bridesmaids were there. William was tending to his Royal Air Force duties.

"We can confirm that Catherine Middleton and Prince Harry took part in a rehearsal at Westminster Abbey this morning," the rep confirmed Friday.

Exciting stuff. Meanwhile, a schedule of events for the big day was released:

Either Star Magazine really likes being sued, or they're just trying to be the Onion of celebrity gossip these days, because these stories are getting absurd.

Give them credit for at least being topical this time, though, rather than recycling Brangelina nonsense again (he's putting it to Bella Heathcote, allegedly).

With the Royal Wedding just weeks away, Star cites TOTALLY RELIABLE intel from a “palace tattletale” in breaking a bombshell: Kate Middleton is pregnant!

Kate Middleton: Pregnant Bride!

OMG!! There’s going to be a big announcement about this after the honeymoon, the tabloid claims. Somehow we won't be holding our breath for that.

Meanwhile, Khloe and Lamar’s honeymoon is reportedly over. For Khlomar, only tears, meddling exes and appointments for sex are the norm these days.

This isn't exactly news, as it happens in any marriage.

Finally, Taylor Armstrong is allegedly anorexic. Now that we can believe. Not bad, Star, batting .333 for the week. BTW, your lawyer's on Line 1.

Prince William has already copped to pre-wedding jitters. With an estimated two billion TV viewers watching your nuptials, we can see why.

Yesterday, during their final public appearance before the big day, Wills' bride-to-be Kate Middleton revealed that she, too, has the butterflies.

Asked by a woman in Blackburn, England, if she was nervous about walking into Westminster Abbey April 29, she said, "Yes, of course I am!"

William and Kate

ROYALLY CUTE: This isn't to say Kate's experiencing cold feet. Just that ... well, it's a Royal Wedding. Who wouldn't be a little overwhelmed at the thought?

They were wished luck at every turn. One couple, Margaret and Alwyn Davis, sent Kate "all the best." Her reply: "Yes, I can't believe it's coming so soon now."

The occasion also marked the first donation by the grant-giving charitable foundation established by Prince William and his brother Prince Harry.

William and Kate handed over a "six-figure sum" to the Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge, which aims to enhance and protect playing fields in Britain.

Earlier today, Prince William and Kate Middleton braved the rain in England to make their final public appearances as a couple before their wedding.

Greeted by well-wishers in the streets of Darwen in Lancashire, they were on hand to mark the opening of the Darwen Aldridge Community Academy.

William and his future wife smiled and waved to the crowd:

  • Prince William Waving
  • Kate Middleton Waving

18 DAYS TO GO: William and Kate will wed April 29.

William is scheduled to officially open the school, where he will launch the SkillForce Prince's Award and address the students, parents, governors and staff.

Their next and last stop of the day will be at nearby Witton Country Park in Blackburn, where thousands of fans are already awaiting his and Kate's arrival.

While there, Kate Middleton and Prince William will observe a series of sporting events and meet with a group of athletes and coaches at the venue.

The Prince is patron of the Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge, an initiative which protects 2,012 outdoor recreational spaces across the U.K.

Kate Middleton will marry Prince William in a couple of weeks, and the new cover of Newsweek captures her in a candid moment befitting of a princess.

Instead of a standard portrait, the photo shows Kate in a moment. Her natural beauty doesn't hurt, but it's a captivating image of the bride-to-be.

Also interesting is the subheading under "Kate the Great" ...

Kate Middleton Newsweek Cover

In previous articles posted on Kate Middleton and Prince William, we've received more than a few comments deriding the fascination with the royal nuptials.

Why, critics ask, do people care so much about a WEDDING with all the serious issues going on in the world? Maybe it's partly because of all those problems.

In a world gone mad, the union of Catherine Elizabeth Middleton and William Arthur Philip Louis Windsor, a prince of the royal blood, offer a nice respite.

Not just an escape, but a reminder that through thick and thin, there are still those events, those joyous moments we can all embrace and relate to.

With the royal wedding just weeks away, the gorgeous white dress Kate Middleton wore in her engagement photos to Prince William is back on the market.

Because it was SO last season, it was out of stock for some time.

The silk, collarless dress, with lacy detail own the front from the brand Whistles has been reissued and is available on the brand's website for 125 pounds.

Here's the engagement photo of the Prince and future Princess:

Royally Adorable

"Whistles is known for its vintage inspired silk blouses, which are currently best sellers in its stores," Jane Shepherdson, chief executive of Whistles said.

Not surprisingly, demand spiked since late last year: "We are delighted Catherine chose to wear Whistles in her engagement photographs," she added.

Like many of Kate's fashion choices, the blouse is from a past season's collection, making it difficult for royal fashion fans to buy one. Until now!

Sorry, Phillipa Lepley. A new name has emerged as the leading contender to design Kate Middleton's wedding gown.

Now London's Sunday Times and Daily Telegraph are both reporting that Sarah Burton (from the house of Alexander McQueen) has earned the honor.

"The design of the dress [will] be a combination of Miss Middleton's own ideas and Mrs Burton's quirky interpretation of high fashion," states the Telegraph, adding that Burton was "chosen for the discretion afforded by her relatively low profile, as well as for her alternative take on elegance."
