The newly-married Prince William and Kate Middleton are always on the lookout for ways to help various charities, especially those involving children.

On Monday, the royal couple will open the new Oak Centre for Children and Young People at The Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton, Surrey, England.

The children's unit will specialize in cancer diagnosis, treatment, research and education. William will unveil a plaque to officially open the children's center before he and Kate Middleton, both 29, meet hospital staff, key donors and fundraisers.

William was appointed President of The Royal Marsden Hospital in May 2007. The position was previously held by his mother, the late Princess Diana.

The facility is one of the largest comprehensive children's cancer centers in Europe, with 600 inpatients and more than 5,000 day patients every year.

Back in April, William and Kate asked their wedding guests to donate to the Royal Wedding Charitable Gift Fund in lieu of gifts. The guests obliged.

The donations all went to benefit 26 charities personally chosen by the duo.

Royal Wedding enthusiasts, listen up (talking to you, Anne Hathaway)!

Hamley's Toy Store in London has unveiled two foot-tall dolls depicting HRH Prince William and Kate Middleton, on their wedding day April 29.

The miniature versions feature replicas of Prince William's Irish Guards uniform, Kate Middleton's wedding dress, ring, shoes, veil and tiara.

The regal, surprisingly lifelike figurines retail for about $80 each.

Earlier, the Franklin Mint had created a similar "Bridal Kate" doll. Also available: an "Engagement Kate" doll and "Kate Around London" doll that's a lot of fun.

No word if a Pippa Middleton series is also planned, but if it is, it will probably have about 50,000 Facebook fans before it's even released to the public.

On his way out, William told reporters that he and his wife were "full of admiration for the dignity of the families have shown dealing with their losses."

On Thursday, William's younger brother, Prince Harry, visited a fire station and ambulance headquarters to thank crew members for their work.

We love Prince William and Kate Middleton, but suffice it to say William & Catherine: A Royal Romance won't be winning any major awards come Oscar time.

If this teaser is any indication, the Hallmark Channel film looks even cheesier than the company's greeting cards ... which we suppose is to be expected.

Still, the acting displayed here by Alice St. Clair (Kate Middleton), Dan Amboyer (Prince William) and Victor Garber (Prince Charles)? Not un-amazing.

Hello, Hallmark? The Unintentional Comedy Hall of Fame is on Line 1 ...

Jennifer Aniston knows a thing about celebrity hairstyles.

The woman who popularized The Rachel was asked, while promoting Horrible Bosses in London, to weigh in on a rumor that Prince William is being encouraged by some to get a cosmetic procedure atop his dome.

We're talking about a hair transplant.

Jennifer Aniston was quick to advise against this - not that he would anyway, in all likelihood - saying William is perfectly handsome the way he is.

"I think he should just let whatever's happening happen. Don't you?" Aniston said on Britain's Capital FM radio. "Well, now if we see him with a hair transplant, then we're going to be like, 'Oh, he had a hair transplant.'"

"I think there's nothing wrong with it, like Ed Harris. Gorgeous."

We agree, and imagine Kate Middleton does as well.

Kate Middleton was recently given a pair of Princess Diana's favorite earrings by Prince William, who previously gave her Diana's sapphire and diamond engagement ring. The earrings were said to be his late mother's favorites.

"Now that they're married, William wanted her to have some of his mother's favorite pieces that meant a lot to her," an insider tells The Daily Mail (UK).

Ever the fashionista, Kate Middleton opted to give Diana's earrings a modern twist by having the studs remodeled into drop earrings, as seen below:

What does a royal couple do when it rains? Probably what you did.

On Saturday, Prince William and Kate Middleton saw not one, but two films at a local branch of Cineworld in Llandudno Junction, about 35 miles outside Anglesey, Wales, where William is stationed as a search and rescue pilot.

The 29-year-olds contributed to the box office record totals of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, and also saw Bridesmaids.

Kate Middleton "was dressed casually, in jeans and a cardigan," an insider said. "They [each] had drinks, but shared a bag of popcorn."

While Harry Potter is a product of Brit J.K. Rowling and features big-name English stars, Bridesmaids topped the Duchess' must-see list.

At the July 9 BAFTA Brits to Watch bash in L.A., director Paul Feig joked with Kate that it's good she waited until after tying the knot:

"We were joking that it was a good thing she didn't see Bridesmaids before she got married, or she might have been a runaway bride!"

We're guessing she liked it. It's pretty darn funny.

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.
