If you thought British royal family gossip would dissipate after the wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William April 29, you thought wrong.

There's the royal couple's secret honeymoon, and the question of whether Chelsy Davy will wed Prince Harry in a royal wedding of their own.

Not to mention the fascination with Kate's sister, Pippa Middleton.

Yeah, the royals are not going anywhere. Especially since really, it's only a matter of time until Kate Middleton pregnancy speculation begins!

Just Wed!

JUST MARRIED: Let the Kate baby bump watch begin!

At some point, there is probably going to be a baby. Even before that, there will be gossip about when there will be a baby. Potentially a lot of it, in fact.

"There's a good chance that she will be pregnant in the next year or two, because, well, that's what royals do," one British royal family expert opines.

Kate Middleton is 29 and Prince William turns the same June 21, so the timing would make sense. Not that fans need a royal baby to remain interested.

Searches for Will and Kate's honeymoon rose 289 percent this week from last, and their upcoming trip to America generated a similar online response.

Long story short, don't expect the royal couple or their siblings to drift into obscurity anytime soon. Two billion people watched the wedding, after all.

With Prince William and Kate Middleton on a secret honeymoon locale chosen in large part to avoid paparazzi, these media members are under siege in the UK.

A legal battle over publication of racy Pippa Middleton pictures is brewing, with roots dating back to the 1997 death of Prince William's mother, Princess Diana.

The racy photo controversy involves shots of Pippa, Kate's sister and made of honor, sunbathing topless, partying and posing in a series of private moments.

The release of the photos prompted the Middleton family to file a formal petition to Britain's independent Press Complaints Commission earlier this week.

That complaint is seen as the first salvo in what is expected to be a conflict between the monarchy and the press as both sides try to establish boundaries.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are determined to live a normal life, and while generally reserved in public, William is fiercely protective of Kate's family.

Despite rumors that they weren't taking one, Prince William and Kate Middleton have embarked on a private honeymoon, according to St. James Palace.

"They have gone [on honeymoon]," a palace rep says. "We are not confirming locations or commenting on any speculation on where they may be going for their private honeymoon, but we can confirm that they have left."

"We askfor their privacy to be respected during their honeymoon."

The Daily Mail (UK) speculates that the royal couple may have retreated to a private island in the Seychelles. Other speculated honeymoon locales included Australia, Mustique, Jordan, Kenya and elsewhere.

One trip that's not so under wraps? Their official visit to America and Canada this summer, which will mark Kate's very first visit to the United States.

Prince William and Kate Middleton got married last week. Maybe you heard.

The newlyweds are not taking a honeymoon anytime soon (good for them), but luckily for us, they are planning a trip to America this summer!

Kate and William will visit California from July 8-10, though their exact itinerary is not public. Prince William has visited the U.S. privately before.

The newly-minted Duchess of Cambridge has never before visited America. The excursion will follow their visit to Canada from June 30-July 8.

The Morning After

Prince William and Kate Middleton became husband and wife - and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - at London's Westminster Abbey this morning.

The royal wedding, pegged the greatest and grandest affair since Prince Charles and Princess Diana's 1981 nuptials, marked a magical chapter in their fairy tale love story, which began at college and will continue throughout their lifetime.

Here's a look at Kate Middleton's wedding dress ...

  • Prince William and Kate
  • William and Kate Marry

The couple wed in a traditional ceremony Friday.

"I, William Arthur Philip Louis, take thee, Catherine Elizabeth, to be my wedded wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse," he vowed. "For richer, for poorer. In sickness and in health. To love and to cherish, till death us do part."

With brother and best man Prince Harry, in the uniform of Captain of the Household Cavalry, by his side, William wearing the scarlet uniform of the Colonel of the Irish Guards, slipped a traditional Welsh gold wedding band on Kate's finger.

"With this ring, I thee wed," he said.
