Princess Kate Middleton
Prince William's wife has a ton of names -- that's for sure. Duchess Kate's (or is it Princess Kate?) are constantly changing. It depends on some factors: the occasion, England’s ruler at the time, the region Middleton's in, or what tabloid is covering a story about her.

Even with an official royal document bearing her name, the Great Kate Debate thrives, and there appears to be little consensus. Let's begin shall we?

Wills' wife was born Catherine Elizabeth Middleton. William even calls his spouse of four years Catherine when referring to her. According to a Marie Claire report, the form...

The mom of two might be MIA lately, but sources say that she is feeling just fine after giving birth to her daughter, Charlotte, in May.

Instead, it seems as though Kate's just taking some extra time with her children.

"The fact that she is now opting to avoid some high-profile social occasions may be nothing more than a simp...

Kate Middleton
Kate Middleton was recently criticized by Princess Diana's former hairstylist for occasionally stepping out with gray roots.

Nicky Clarke, who once worked on Diana as well as the Duchess of York, told the Daily Mail, "Kate is such a style icon that even a few strands of gray would be a disaster, so I highly recommend that she cover it up. I hate gray hair."

The Duchess of Cambridge, 33, is definitely considered a style maven, but is it really that big a deal?

Prince George and Princess Charlotte
Ahead of her christening, enormous speculation has swirled about possible Godparents to Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. While Brangelina and Duchess Kate's sister, Pippa Middleton didn't make the cut; there are five lucky few who did.

Where Is Duchess Kate's Sister And That Royal Bum?

7/4/2015 2:29pm EDT
Dear Pippa Middeton, Where Are You? Ahead Of Christening, Duches
Here's a fair question: Where on Earth is Pippa Middleton?

Ahead of the Royal Christening of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's daughter, Princess Charlotte, Pip is missing in action -- sort of. The younger sister of Kate Middleton has kept a low profile for some time now.

Arguably, there has not been much talk about Pippa Middleton ever since Prince George was born. Nowadays, all the fuss is about Harry the humanitarian, Prince William the doting father, Here Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, and who Duchess Kate is wearing. Noticeably missing is the bum goddess herself aka P-Middy, to some ...

Grandma Middleton, 60, a former airline attendant and current successful entrepreneur, showed off her stately figure as she took in some professional tennis at the 2015 Wimbledon Championship.

Not only did Carole draw attention by sitting in the Royal Box; her toned and tanned legs drew in the eyes. With Middleton's sunglasses partially masking her identity, some thought she was Duchess Kate of Cambridge.

Duchess Kate Is Dainty, But The Sports Princess Is Not Afraid To
Will Duchess Kate Middleton return to sports and competition, or is she too dainty of a princess to work up a sweat?

Had she not married a Prince, perhaps, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge would have been a top athlete with FIFA World Cup (she's not bad at soccer). Or perhaps Princess Kate would have led a kayaking team or served as a volleyball beach hottie (yes, she can even play in corkscrew heels).

And don't forget her skills at cricket. Recall last year when Will and Kate traveled to New Zealand to help usher in the 2015 Cricket World Cup? Then, Her Highness donned a pair of black hee...
