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!

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.

Prince William and Kate Middleton attended a charity gala Thursday night and needless to say, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge looked wonderful.

At their first black tie event since their wedding, Kate donned a Jenny Packham rose gown with Swarovski crystals, wearing her long brown hair down.

Middleton's sparkling sapphire engagement ring was in full view as she clutched a matching purse and wore LK Bennett shoes, a favorite brand of hers.

William, Kate

Not to be overlooked, Prince William looked dashing in his tuxedo as the couple arrived at the 10th Annual ARK Absolute Return for Kids Gala Dinner.

The gala dinner marked the 10th anniversary of the "Ark Absolute Return for Kids," established by financier Arpad Busson to sponsor academy schools in the UK and programs for disadvantaged children around the world.

A joint venture by the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry and the Ark charity will expand their project to parts of sub-Suharan Africa.
