  • As a teenager, Prince George Alexander Louis will have a mop of brown hair, his dad's mouth and his mom's eyes and nose—at least according to a computer image by portrait artist D'Lynn Waldron, who has envisioned how the royal baby might look in about 15 years. Waldron created the prince's rosy-cheeked visage through her process of "age-progressed" portraiture, which is, according to her website, "forensically based on all available source materials, including genetics, lifestyle, medical history, personality, environment, and how gravity will effect [sic] that person's face." She's given the treatment to others including Paris Hilton, Hillary Clinton, and Princess Diana. Waldron will have to wait another 15 years to see if she's on the money. In the meantime, here's a look at some real-life royals in their adorable (and sometimes awkward) teenage years. —Beth Greenfield, Shine Staff

    Granted, Prince William certainly doesn’t need the paternity pay men receive under British law (which comes out to about $210 a week in his case), but by taking a paid break from his position as a Royal Air Force search-and-rescue helicopter pilot, he’s undoubtedly setting a new precedent for men everywhere.

    Call it the Prince William Effect. Similar to how Kate Middleton’s choices have been known to trigger international frenzies — her cinched Jenny Packham dress proved that it's perfectly fine for new moms to bear their post-baby bump; her 8-carat sapphire-and-diamond engagement ring spawned dozens of knockoffs; and even those nude pantyhose evoked a 1980s revival — Prince William’s choice to

    He's the future King of England … but just how powerful is Prince George over his own domain? Domain name, that is.

    Just moments after it was announced on Wednesday that Prince William and Kate Middleton had named their newborn son George Alexander Louis, the website was snatched up by Luc-Andre Biggs, a Portuguese domain-name broker, according to a report from Wired magazine. Biggs could not be reached for comment, nor has he spoken publicly about his motivation for purchasing the name, responding to an inquiry by Wired with, "Why do you want to know?"

    This is far from the first time Biggs has made a play for potentially lucrative URLs. According to domain marketplace, Biggs's company, Key Domains, has over 3,000 domain names up for sale. But will stay on the market? Experts say it's hard to tell. "The laws around domain names are pretty complicated. Generally, to gain rights to a domain name, you must have a registered tradem

From the Internet's  fascination with her post-delivery "bump" to OK! magazine's instructions on how she should lose it, the royal baby obsession has just collided with our ongoing post-baby body obsession. Sparks are flying.

    "The question on everyone's lips is not just the name, sex or weight of the baby, but also how Kate plans to return to her pre-pregnancy glory," according to the July issue of OK! Magazine's U.K. edition, obviously published before Prince George's arrival. What follows is a six-page weight-loss plan for the Duchess that she probably didn't ask for.

  • When Kate Middleton and Prince William emerged with their son, Prince George of Cambridge, at St. Mary's Hospital on Tuesday, spectators noticed many similarities between the occasion and the day William was introduced to the world back in 1982. For starters, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a polka dot dress, paying tribute to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, who wore a similar frock while descending the very same staircase. But that's not the only parallel between the royal births. Take a look at how the royal families and the surrounding scene have changed -- and remained the same -- 31 years later.
