Drawing on her extensive experience and the trust built up over thirty years of writing about the Royal Family, Penny Junor has got closer than anyone to the secret of William's success as she sensitively and elegantly narrates his life story.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 31, looked better than ever attending The Tusk Conservation Awards at The Royal Society in London on Thursday, Sept. 12. An eyewitness tells Us Weekly that William and his wife "looked very relaxed together" while making their way to a meet-and-greet in the lobby. The couple greeted a group of wildlife conservationists and chatted with Gabon President Ali Bongo Ondimba, who asked about their less than two-month-old son, Prince George. "We've left him at home for the first time," William told Ondimba. When asked who their son looked like most, Middleton replied, "Like most babies, he's got a mix of both of us."

There was no sign of the Duchess of Cambridge or the couple's seven-week-old son as William attended the wedding of James Meade to Lady Laura Marsham. However, Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton were among the guests at the wedding in Gayton, Norfolk.

Prince George -- with parents Kate Middleton and Prince William, plus nanny Jessie Webb -- flew to Scotland early Sunday, Sept. 15, bound for Balmoral Castle. The young family was greeted at the Queen’s residence by an excited Prince Philip, who has been desperate to meet his great grandson.
Poorly Philip was the only senior royal not to have been introduced to the newborn before yesterday. The meeting had been delayed for weeks because Philip, 92, has been recovering from exploratory abdominal surgery. A smiling Philip has been seen enjoying his break and he attended the Braemar Gathering Highland games with the Queen last weekend – but the arrival of Prince George will be the highlight of his trip. A royal source said: “This was an incredible moment for Philip. "He has been desperate to meet his great grandson and having the family together is really special for him.”
Prince Harry has emerged from a giant freezer where he spent the night in preparation for a charity polar trek. The Prince and his team were bombarded with blizzards, high winds and sudden, extreme drops in temperature in a test chamber in the Midlands. It is in readiness for gruelling 208-mile (335km) trek to the South Pole for charity, which will put his group under extreme physical pressure.
