Kate Middleton Plans to Change ‘Outdated Royal Rules’ as Queen

Monarch in waiting! Over the last several years, Duchess Kate has been gradually shifting her mindset to that of a queen consort, the title she will hold when Prince William becomes king one day.

“Kate has flourished into a queen in waiting in front of everyone’s eyes,” a royal source says exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly. “The royal family could not be more pleased.”

The role is a bit down the road though. After Queen Elizabeth II steps down, her eldest son, Prince Charles, will take the throne, and his wife, Duchess Camilla, will become princess consort. William, 38, is next in line for the crown after his father.

Since marrying into the British royal family in April 2011, Kate,

  • While it’s common knowledge among royal fans that Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his late mother, Princess Diana’s, engagement right, it might surprise some to learn that Will wasn’t the person who inherited the iconic ring.

  • Prince Harry actually inherited Diana’s engagement ring when she died in 1997, but “selflessly” offered it to his brother for his engagement to Kate, Diana’s former butler Paul Burrell explains in a new documentary.

When Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton, he did so with a truly iconic piece of royal jewelry: The same sapphire engagement ring that had belonged to his late mother, Princess Diana. This is common knowledge among royal fans. What’s less common knowledge? Apparently, Diana’s ring wasn’t actually Will’s to give.

According to a new report from The Sun, Will’s younger brother, Prince Harry, was actually

Kate Mara Says She Should’ve Spoken Up During ‘Horrible’ ‘Fantastic Four’ Experience

Click here to read the full article.

Josh Trank’s notorious 2015 superhero tentpole “Fantastic Four” is the Marvel disaster that keeps on giving… awfulness. Though reams of NDAs have kept the filmmaker and his cast from speaking explicitly about just what went down on the 20th Century Fox debacle — Trank, for example, slept with a gun during production — yet another cryptic horror story has emerged from the wreckage. Star Kate Mara, who played Sue Storm a.k.a. Invisible Woman in the costly title, recently confessed to having a “horrible experience” while making the movie, per a new interview in Emmy Magazine.

“I had a horrible experience on ‘Fantastic Four,’” she said. “I’ve never talked about it before. I married one of my costars, so I don’t regret doing that movie at all. But do I wish I had responded differently to certain things? Yes, definitely.” (That co-star she would

Kate Winslet broke Tom Cruise’s underwater filming record on Avatar 2 set without realizing it

Does Kate Winslet get to join the Impossible Mission Force now?

We’ve known for a while now that the actress held her breath for more than seven minutes while shooting underwater scenes for Avatar 2. But Winslet didn’t realize — nor did anyone else until recently, apparently — that this means she held her breath longer than Tom Cruise on the set of Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation, previously considered the record for underwater breath-holding on screen.

Cruise trained extensively to hold his breath for six and a half minutes to film an underwater stunt for the blockbuster, which means Winslet bested him by about 45 seconds. However, the Titanic actress was unaware that this feat had become public until a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight.

“It’s so funny because I don’t really read reviews or media things. I’m not

Inside Kate Middleton’s ‘Strategic’ Pursuit of Prince William, From Changing Schools to a 9-Year Proposal Wait

From ELLE

Meghan Markle has been portrayed in some tabloids as weaseling her way into the royal family. But the truly strategic royal bride-to-be may have been Prince William’s wife Kate Middleton—at least according to The Crown historian Robert Lacey. In his new book Battle of Brothers: William and Harry—The Inside Story of a Family in Tumult, Lacey details the lengths Kate went to position herself as William’s best choice to marry when she was just 19. When she met him at the University of St. Andrews in 2001, Kate wasn’t supposed to be enrolled there, Lacey tells ELLE.com.

“Kate was very strategic,” Lacey says. “She gave up her place at one of Britain’s premier universities, Edinburgh, and opted for another one [St. Andrews] that probably didn’t have the same academic standard. She had already been to Edinburgh to get her flat accommodations sorted out but switched universities and

The 37-year-old star has now spoken further to Collider and revealed she should have “followed my instincts more” rather than letting comments and actions slide on set of the Josh Trank film.

She added: “It was such a big movie and again, usually — except in this case — when you’re in a big superhero movie they usually do incredibly well, like almost always.

Kate Mara had a “horrible experience” working on ‘Fantastic Four’.

The 37-year-old actress doesn’t “regret” making the 2015 Marvel movie – in which she played Sue Storm/ Invisible Woman – because it’s where she met her now-husband Jamie Bell, but she does wish she’d “responded differently” to certain situations on set.

Reflecting on the “horrible experience” making the film, which was directed by Josh Trank, she told Emmy Magazine: “I’ve never talked about it before. I married one of my co-stars, so I don’t regret doing that movie at all. But do I wish I had responded differently to certain things? Yes, definitely.”

While Kate didn’t go into the specifics of what happened on the movie, she admitted she had another “horrendous experience” on a different set, with she believed was due to a “power dynamic thing” from her male directors.

She continued: “The fact
