When Kensington Palace released HRH Prince George of Cambridge’s birth certificate on Friday, all eyes were on the mother’s occupation: “Princess of the United Kingdom.”

What’s this?

Since the royal wedding on April 29th, 2011, it was made clear that Catherine Middleton would be styled Her Royal Highness Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. She was not to be referred to as “Princess Catherine,” since she was not of royal blood. Despite this, some outlets decided to go ahead and refer to the Berkshire native as “Princess Kate.”

Just like Diana and the Countess of Wessex, royal protocol dictates that Catherine is not entitled to a style preceding her first name.

“On marriage, Prince William retained the title Prince William of Wales and as the wife of a Royal Prince, The Duchess is entitled to use the name of her husband, Princess William of Wales,” a royal source told me.

“It is important to note she is not Princess Catherine or Princess Kate though,” the source made sure to point out.

This entitlement reflects her position within the royal family. As royal blogger Ella Kay pointed out, there is a difference between ranking and title.

“The couple chose to use these names/ titles in the same way as other members of the Royal Family have used the titles conferred upon them by the Queen on marriage,” the source added.

The takeaway: Catherine is, in fact, a princess of the United Kingdom because, says the source, she is “Princess William of Wales.”

Couples news and a “Doctor” announcement ruled the weekend headlines, and Celebuzz is rounding up the hottest stories just for you.

Buckleberry Manor Will Be Baby Cambridge's Temporary Home

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are the proud new parents of the Prince of Cambridge, and once William’s two weeks of paternity leave is up, Kate will call on the help of her parents, who own a Georgian manor just outside London.

Kate is foregoing royal tradition as she moves into her parents’ most recently-purchased Bucklebury home with the UK’s future monarch for at least six weeks. Traditionally, a royal child spends a majority of its upbringing with a nanny and baby nurses from the getgo, but the Duchess prefers to be close to her mother, who raised three children without hired help.

The gorgeous estate, known as Bucklebury Manor, contrasts greatly to the palaces, particularly Buckingham. Going from 775 rooms to 7 might be a tight squeeze, but the family seems excited and embracing the low-key change, according to Kate’s uncle, Gary Goldsmith. Carole Middleton’s younger brother recently told the Telegraph that HRH doesn’t want to make any additions to their temporary cottage at Kensington Palace while renovations are underway at apt 1A. “Kate felt it wasn’t worth the money to go all-out [on a nursery],” he explained.

The new home will give the Duchess respite from all the commotion that has swept the world since the highly-anticipated birth, with Michael and Carole there to help her with late-night diaper duty and enjoy private family walks on their stunningly lush 18 acres of land.

Located in Berkshire, the 7-bedroom, 5-reception room mansion will give the growing family a serene backdrop (farm animals included) and a safe, calming environment away from the hustle-and-bustle of London. With a steel-framed green room, tennis court and swimming pool, the Manor offers plenty of recreational activities for any grandchild (and future grandchildren) and a sweet escape for the royal couple.

Only hours after welcoming a son into the world, Prince William and Kate Middleton released a statement Tuesday thanking everyone at St. Mary’s Hospital in London for their hard work and patience.

“We would like to thank the staff at the Lindo Wing and the whole hospital for the tremendous care the three of us have received,” the couple said. “We know it has been a very busy period for the hospital and we would like to thank everyone – staff, patients and visitors – for their understanding during this time.

William and Kate, both 31, welcomed a son Monday afternoon at 14:24 GBT, weighing 8 lbs. 6 oz.

“We could not be happier,” William said in a statement Monday.

Queen Elizabeth hosted New Zealand Prime Minister John Key and his family at Balmoral Castle in Scotland this past weekend, with the help of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

During their two-day stay, John and his wife, Bronagh were driven around the estate by Her Majesty, according to the New Zealand Herald. Their son, Max went on a grouse shoot with Prince William, while daughter Stephanie joined Catherine on a hike through the woodlands with others.

The Prime Minister gave a brief interview to the Herald about his stay at the royal family’s Scottish retreat, making sure to keep certain details under wraps (one wants an invite back, after all).

The Keys had a chance to meet Prince George, whomwas described as a “very bonny baby.” They also took part in the famous Mountbatten-Windsor bbq, helmed by the Queen (who does the washing up afterwards) and the Duke of Edinburgh.

Despite still being on the mend from abdominal surgery, Prince Philip took charge of cooking.

“They all pitched in,” Keys told the paper while on a flight to France. “We helped lay the table, all the guests helped. It must be the only bit of informality they really have in their lives. It’s definitely an informal gathering.”

Keys had an audience with the Queen in her Balmoral sitting room, where the Cambridge’s official photo (taken by Michael Middleton) took pride of place on a table by one of the chairs.

Despite Balmoral being the Queen’s annual holiday, she invites prime ministers and other leaders from the Commonwealth realms to visit the historic castle, as well as set aside time to speak about business affairs.

Just like Barack Obama before him, Prince George‘s birth certificate has been released by Clarence House. The document, signed on Friday by Prince William, lists Kate Middleton‘s occupation as “Princess of the United Kingdom.”

Prince George's Birth Certificate

The birth certificate also lists Kensington Palace as the prince’s “usual address,” though the family is currently living with the Middletons in Buckleberry.

As per tradition, Kate Middleton, Prince William and their new baby boy will pose on the steps of St. Mary’s Hospital before they leave.

Obviously, we cannot WAIT to see the darling royal bundle of joy, but after we get a good glimpse of his chubby cheeks, our eyes are going straight to Kate’s hair!

And we can rest assured it’s going to be bouncy and flawless as always!

The Duchess’s personal hairdresser, Amanda Tucker, was spotted arriving at the Lindo wing by photog Arthur Edwards (he was also there in 1982 when William was born!) this morning, tweeting:

LMK 0260581

After publishing topless sunbathing photos of Britain’s future queen, Kate Middleton, French magazine Closer recently revealed that they have more scandalous photos of Kate-“intimate” ones that include her husband, Prince William!

The tabloid’s editor, Laurence Pieau, who is being sued for invading privacy, said she’s not publishing the seemingly sexual photos of the royal couple, but it seems someone else is very interested in them.

According to TMZ, YouPorn.com-the same company that used Brian McKnight‘s latest R-Rated composition-is offering unlimited cash to Pieau in exchange for the shots.

In the letter, YouPorn boss, Corey Price, wrote:

“We feel very confident that we can show this footage legally, and would like to make you aware that we have an ‘open checkbook.’”

Oh no.

Do you think Closer will end up selling the photos of Kate and William?
