Kate Middleton and Prince William offer special gift to the Queen of Bhutan

The red flower, named the “Queen of Bhutan Rose,” was created for King Jigme and Queen Jetsun of Bhutan, founders of the annual Royal Bhutan Flower Show last year and creators of an English garden.

“I am delighted that Their Royal Highnesses have been able to present this rose to the king and queen of Bhutan as a symbolic gesture of the growing friendship between our two countries,” Hugo Swire, the Minister for Asia, said in a statement.

The Duchess, née Kate Middleton, 34, and the Duke, 33, showed off their sporty side by hiking up to the Tiger’s Nest monastery on their second day in Buthan.

Later, the royals attended a reception where they “chatted to people from the UK with strong links to Bhutan.” Kate looked stunning in Beulah London’s “Juliet Flower Spirits” red dress featuring blue poppies – Bhutan’s national flower.

Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry welcome Barack and Michelle Obama at the Palace

The President and First Lady of the United States arrived at the Palace at 7.15pm on Friday night, and chatted with the royals before having a private dinner.

The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, wore an L.K. Bennett’s Addison printed silk dress, while First Lady Michelle Obama chose a nude ensemble for the occasion.

The Obamas were also greeted by Prince George who was dreesed in pajamas. The Palace released adorable photos of George, 2, meeting the President and the First Lady. At that time, Princess Charlotte was already asleep.

“George stayed up for a few minutes when the President and the First Lady arrived, but Charlotte was in bed,” a royal source said.

First Lady Michelle Obama sat down for tea with Prince Harry at Kensington Palace during her visit to the United Kingdom in June. The 31-year-old royal and Obama “discussed their shared interest in support for veterans and their families.”

Michelle Obama gifted Charlotte with an American-made Amish rocking chair and a personalized Alpaca baby blanket, while George recevied a Berlin Flyer P-Wee Wagon.

“I’ve never been happier in a relationship by any stretch of the imagination,” the Up in the Air star told the magazine. “At 52. I found the love of my life and I’m really happy.”

For many years, Clooney has stood as Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor, until he met Amal.

The couple got engaged in April 2014, and they tied the knot in a private ceremony in Venice, Italy, that same year in September.

In January, the Money Monster actor denied rumors that his wife was pregnant.

The Duchess of Cambridge isn’t pregnant with twins, despite reports

The new issue of Life & Style claims that the 34-year-old royal is expecting twins. In addition, the magazine alleges that the Duke and Duchess are already talking about names, adding that Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s parents are due to break the tradition by choosing African names.

This isn’t the first time the same tabloid claims that William and Kate are set to become parents again and that they’re already thinking about names. However, Gossip Cop has denied these reports.

In January, Life & Style claimed that the royals announced a so-called third pregnancy to their families on Christmas and that Duchess Kate was two months along at the time.

Obviously, a baby bump would have been visible by now, especially since Catherine has been in the spotlight lately during the royal couple’s India-Buthan tour in April and she showed off a rather svelte figure.

Kate’s second pregnancy was announced by Clarence House in September 2014.

“Their Royal Highnesses, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child,” Clarence House said in a statement at the time. “The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.”

Kate gave birth to Princess Charlotte on May 2, 2015.

Until an official confirmation, the pregnancy reports should be taken with a grain of salt.

Kate Middleton jokes about three-hour climb to the Tiger’s Nest monastery: ‘great way to burn off the curry’


On their second day in Buthan, the royals hiked in the Himalayas up to the Paro Taktsang monastery, also known as Tiger’s Nest. At the end of their three-hour trip to the monastery, Kate jokingly said that it was a “great way to burn off the curry.”

In fact, during their India-Buthan tour, Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s mother was asked by Professor Bulbul Dhar-James about her secret for staying fit, while at a garden party in Delhi on April 11 for the Queen’s upcoming 90th birthday.

“We said, ‘How do you lose all the weight after having two kids?’ ” the Professor told People. “And she said, ‘I am running after my kids!’ ”

The 34-year-old sporty royal proved she’s in great shape as she barely broke a sweat during the climb.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also admired the breathtaking landscape during their hike.

“It was amazing. Beautiful scenery as you saw. With the mountains like this and the temples at the top, it was just stunning to walk up there and see all the scenery and to listen to some of the history and religion of the country. It’s really important when you come on a trip like this to see some of that,” William said.

“It was an amazing experience. I feel very lucky and fortunate to see such beautiful scenery,” Kate added.”As William said, learn about the country.”


William’s father Prince Charles made a similar hike in 1998 but he stopped halfway up the mountain.

“My father didn’t make it to the top,” the Duke said. “So that’s something I’ll be reminding him of when I see him. It will be lovely if the children could come as well definitely.”

Kate Middleton reveals how she lost weight post-pregnancy

After just one month since Princess Charlotte’s birth, Catherine made her appearance at a charity polo match wearing skinny jeans.


What is her secret to staying fit? Well, during a garden party in Delhi on April 11 celebrating the Queen’s upcoming 90th birthday, Kate, 34, was asked by Professor Bulbul Dhar-James about her trim post-baby figure.

“We said, ‘How do you lose all the weight after having two kids?’ ” Professor Bulbul Dhar-James told People. “And she said, ‘I am running after my kids!’ ”


The magazine revealed last year that Duchess Kate’s secrets for keeping fit were a top trainer and a healthy diet during her pregnancy.

“I’ve had people say really hurtful things about me, and so I’ve kind of learned how to gauge it: ‘This is, like, low-to-medium-level hurtful,’” Swift explained. “There are a lot of really easy ways to dispel rumors. If they say you are pregnant, all you have to do is continue to not be pregnant and not have a baby. If the rumor is that you have fake friendships, all you have to do is continue to be there for each other.”

“And when we’re all friends in fifteen years and raising our kids together, maybe somebody will look back and go, ‘That was kind of ridiculous what we said about Taylor and her friends,’” the musician added.

The multi-platinum selling artist also opened up about her boyfriend Calvin Harris, with whom she recently celebrated one year of relationship.

“I’m just taking things as they come,” Swift said. “I’m in a magical relationship right now. And of course I want it to be ours, and low-key . . . this is the one thing that’s been mine about my personal life.”

Last year in March, Swift and Harris sparked dating rumors after the couple was spotted together holding hands at Kenny Chesney’s concert in Nashville.

Kate Middleton and Prince William visit Taj Mahal during their India-Buthan tour


The Duchess, née Kate Middleton, 34, who wore a white dress with blue embroidery by India designer Naeem Khan, and the Duke of Cambridge, 33, recreated the iconic image from 1992.

“I hope you’ve got the symmetry right, Arthur,” William joked with the Sun’s royal photographer Arthur Edwards, who had been among the journalists taking pictures of Diana in the exact same place 24 years ago.

Kensington Palace shared several photos of the royals touring the Taj Mahal. The Palace also posted a picture of them standing at the same place as Princess Diana during her visit.

Before visiting the Taj Mahal, the Duke and Duchess, who will celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary on April 29, were in Buthan where they met “William and Kate of the Himalayas,” King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and his wife Queen Jetsun Pema, who became parents of a baby boy, Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck, on February 19.

Kate Middleton talks about the reason why Prince George and Princess Charlotte were absent on India and Buthan tour


The Duke of Cambridge, 33, was asked by the locals of the Pan Bari village in Kaziranga National Park why they didn’t bring their children, Prince George, who will turn 3 in July, and Princess Charlotte, who is due to celebrate her first birtday next month, in India.

The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, 34, joked, “Because George is too naughty. He would be running all over the place. The next time we come we will definitely bring them.”

Catherine, who was dressed in a pink floral Topshop dress with black embroidery, confessed that she missed Charlotte, especially when seeing the village little girls.

In 2014, Prince George accompanied his parents during their royal tour in Australia and New Zealand.

Maybe we’ll get the chance to see George and Charlotte on William and Kate’s next tour as the royal children are bound to steal the show.

Sean Penn and Minka Kelly are not dating, despite rumors

According to sources cited by JustJared, the 55-year-old actor and the 35-year-old actress aren’t in a relationship.

“Sean stopped by Minka‘s table to say hi and was there for five minutes and they snapped a pic,” a source told JustJared. “The fact that she let them take a pic is indicative of the fact that they’re not dating. She’s never let a photog take a pic of her with anyone she’s ever dated.”

“Not my nature to address gossip but hoping this last one goes away already,” Minka tweeted. “Not dating a friend I had a group dinner with.”

Then, Kelly and Penn sparked romance rumors when the I Am Sam actor attended The Path actress’ 35th birthday in June.
