Prince William gave some revealing information to a group of schoolchildren – he told them what bands he enjoyed listening to. The Prince visited a group of children at Goole High School in East Yorkshire, England, to present a new award for the kids.
"I really like Coldplay, Linkin Park," William told the children. "I used to play the piano, trumpet and drums when I was your age but I couldn't read music. There's only so much you can remember from the top of your head."
William has been busy ever since returning from a three-week long tour of Australia and New Zealand with wife Kate and son George. Kate, meanwhile, has been home, preparing their new country home and taking care of George. The couple did, however, visit France to pay tribute to troops on the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings. more >>
A new report claims that Kate Middleton is pregnant with her second child but staying out of the limelight for health reasons. The Duchess of Cambridge was photographed looking gaunt, which fueled speculation that perhaps she was as sick with her pregnancy as she was with Prince George.
"She is so tired at the end of the day, she collapses on her bed," a "royal source" told Life & Style magazine. "She is way beyond exhausted. It's a particularly worrying time for William. He is very concerned."
Even though Kate appeared healthy throughout her trip to Australia and New Zealand, and dispelled pregnancy rumors by drinking wine, speculation has still been rampant that she is, indeed, pregnant. William has even joked that they would be welcoming another baby "soon," though he was vague on a timeline. more >>
