Having dazzled the United States and Canada with their regal presence, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have arrived home in the UK. What excitement awaits the newly-married Prince William and Kate Middleton now?

Not a lot.

Sources say that following the royal wedding and a crazy last couple of months, the pair would like to keep a low profile for the rest of the year.

"The past few months have been a whirlwind and [Kate] wants to take a step back and spend some time with her new husband," says a source.

Prince William is more than up for that.

"The Duke is going for his flying captaincy in early 2012. He needs to keep up his flying hours and there are some exams, a lot of work needs to done and he has to dedicate himself to that," a spokesman told the Daily Mail.

Basically, they'll be living in Anglesey, Wales, where he's stationed, and when he's not training, Will and Kate will just enjoy being together.

Prince William and Kate Middleton ended their whirlwind visit to the U.S. in typical fashion: Devoting time to charitable causes important to them.

Following a star-studded day of glamorous events, the royal visited L.A.'s notorious Skid Row district to spend time with impoverished children.

That wasn't all. The Duke and Duchess followed that up by filling care packages for children whose parents are serving overseas in the military.

Will and Kate went to Inner City Arts, an oasis in the middle of an area rife with homelessness that provides free art classes to neighborhood kids.

The regal 29-year-olds were treated to an art class of their own, where they painted canvasses and made ceramics alongside some area children.

Later, at the Service Nation: Mission Serve event at the Sony studios in Culver City, William gave a speech at his trip's "most important" event.

"In terms of pure star quality, William and Kate are the biggest stars in the world," said Piers Morgan, among the guests at the hottest ticket in Hollywood.

How impressed were the celebs? In a town where your worth is gauged by how late you get to show up, the biggest names in showbiz were there early.

Also attending were Jennifer Lopez, Blake Lively, Dana Delany, Elizabeth Moss, Marie Louise Parker, Kristin Chenoweth, Jason Bateman, Elizabeth Banks, Jack Black, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Jonah Hill and Chris Evans.

Continuing their Canadian tour, Prince William and Kate Middleton squared off in a friendly dragon boat race Monday on Prince Edward Island.

Despite a torrential downpour of soaking rain at Dalvay-by-the-Sea, the royal couple was able to fit in the afternoon race across Dalvay Lake.

William won, but his wife was the true prize.

As couple suited up in life jackets and boating attire, the two crews were fighting over which group would get to boat with Kate Middleton!

"Both he and Kate are very competitive, so I think [the race] was good," Olympic bobsled athlete Heather Moyse, who presented William with his prize of a bottle of champagne, says of the newly-married pair.

"As a female athlete, I would be really annoyed if someone let me win."

Despite her loss, Middleton remained in high spirits, telling attendee Hillary Thompson that "maybe next time" she'll get the best of William.

After the race, the 29-year-old Duke and Duchess walked along the waterfront to regain their energy by sampling local culinary delicacies.

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.
