Princess Kate Pregnancy Symptoms: Duchess of Cambridge 'Looking
Sooner or later, Princess Kate is going to be pregnant if the rumors continue swirling. The latest buzz suggests that the Duchess of Cambridge has signs and symptoms of expecting baby number three. The chief reason that bolsters this claim appears to be, um, she looks exhausted as of late.

You'll Likely Never See the Duchess Of Cambridge In Bikini Again
Kate Middleton, just like the next gal, loves a chic bikini.

The Duchess of Cambridge has been snapped in bathing suits before getting married, on her babymoon, and during her pre-Princess Kate days. Thanks to the ambitious paparazzi -- and maybe at the behest of Queen Elizabeth -- you're not likely to see K-Middy showing off skin again on the surf.

Duchess Kate is a preeminent authority on fashion, charm, frugality, and etiquette. Catherine of Cambridge's penchant for trending style and looking funky fresh without breaking the bank is second to none.

The Duchess is known to recycle go...
