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.

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.

Prince William is kind of the man.

Not only is he rich, famous, intelligent, married to a lovely young woman and the heir to the British throne, he's an accomplished pilot in the UK's armed forces - as evidenced during a daring rescue mission he took part in this morning.

William helped save the lives of Russian seamen whose cargo vessel sank into the Irish Sea off the coast of North Wales early today, according to various reports.

Man in Uniform

Known simply as Flight Lt. William Wales in the Royal Air Force, he was co-pilot in a four-man rescue helicopter crew that responded to a mayday call around 2 a.m.

At that point, the vessel Swanland's hull apparently cracked in bad weather.

He and fellow military servicemen saved two men, airlifting them to safety at William's base on the Welsh island of Anglesey, where he lives with Kate Middleton.

The body of one of Swanland's crew has been recovered; five are still missing.

"We know at least some of [the missing] are wearing immersion suits and have strobe lighting with them," Jim Green, a coast guard spokesman, said Sunday. "However, sea conditions are challenging at best."

Is Kate Middleton pregnant? We doubt it, given photo and anecdotal evidence.

Is she trying to get pregnant? That we cannot say with the same certainty!

"There have been reports to the contrary worldwide, but the fact is that the Duchess of Cambridge is not pregnant," insisted a royal aide close to Prince William and Kate Middleton. "Does she hope to be soon? I should say so."

So ... does that mean what we think it means?

Possibly not. There's another factor that could delay any royal family expansion.

"Prince William will be on active military duty in the Falkland Islands early next year, and there is no earthly way he would be assigned 8,000 miles from home if the Duchess of Cambridge were expecting," explained a second palace insider.

That does make sense, to wait until the timing is right.

But the first source insists the time is right now:

Is Kate Middleton pregnant? People sure seem to think so.

Whether there's anything to the rumors, we can't say, but just days after she ignited Bump Watch 2011 by declining peanut paste - a food expectant mothers are told to avoid - new photos have emerged of Kate (gasp!) holding her stomach!

Also interestingly, the Palace has yet to deny the rumors.

  • Kate Middleton, Belly

Visiting a UNICEF distribution center in Copenhagen, Denmark, last week, Kate was seen patting and rubbing her midsection, which was covered by a chic red coat.

"It was very odd," an onlooker at the UNICEF event told the Daily Mail.

"Kate would not stop touching her tummy. It was very noticeable. She continually patted it and held her hands against it. She must have been doing it without realizing, and at one point she had both her hands cradling her stomach."

The Kate Middleton pictures above don't prove anything, but until there is an official comment, the buzz surrounding the Duchess' womb will likely continue unabated.

If she is pregnant right now, he or she will rule.

Is Kate Middleton pregnant? The Duchess has ignited speculation that she is expecting once again after a visit to a UNICEF distribution center in Copenhagen, Denmark.

With Prince William at her side, Kate avoided a certain food product as they sampled items from UNICEF aid packages sent to famine-stricken East African countries.

While members of the Danish royal family and William tasted peanut paste, Kate politely refused and reportedly gave her husband of six months a knowing look.

Doctors have frequently recommended pregnant women avoid peanuts and byproducts while expecting in order to help prevent allergies in their babies-to-be.

What's more, The Palace itself even "went out of their way to stress that she has no nut allergy whatsoever," an editor for Britain's The Sun told ABC News.

Whenever William and Kate Middleton welcome their first child, he or she will inherit the throne. The rules were changed to allow a first-born daughter to rule.

If they have a girl first, that is. The UK monarchy recently agreed that a first-born girl should be able to ascend the throne even if she has younger brothers.

Still, pregnancy speculation or not, Middleton is certainly not displaying any bump just yet; Britain's Best Dressed was slim and stylish as ever in Denmark.

Congratulations ... maybe!

How popular are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge?

Do we even have to answer that question at this point?

Prince William and Kate Middleton have received about 60,000 letters and cards of goodwill from members of the public since their engagement nearly a year ago.

The number of messages peaked again around the time of the royal wedding in April - and the coolest thing about it is that a return address guarantees a reply.

Heirs to the Throne

"There was everything from posters made by classes of schoolchildren to cards sent by other members of the public," says a Palace aide of the letters to the royals.

A group of junior girl guides - called Rainbows - in Glasgow sent a congratulations card, and then got word that the Duke and Duchess were "immensely touched."

Workers in the couple's office in St. James's Palace are still going through all the letters and cards in a bid to answer them, which they say they do ... eventually.

"It will take quite a while for the small team to get to answer them all, but everyone gets a reply if there is a return address," says a Palace aide of the fan mail.

Sadly, it is not known if Pippa Middleton responds to date requests.
