There are still 22 shopping days left until Christmas, but Chris Colfer's wish list is already being fulfilled. The "Glee" star took to Twitter today (along with, well, everyone else) to herald the birth of Prince William and Duchess Kate's first born!
That's right, the royal couple is expecting (we already mapped out five lessons he/she will need to glean from the movies), and if Chris continues to stay on Santa's good side, it seems more amazing things are yet to come.
Are you as intrigued as Chris is by the impending birth of a little prince or princess? Tell us in the comments and on Twitter!
Those regal royals across the pond certainly didn't waste any time creating an heir to the throne: the whole internet is abuzz today with the news that Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (nee Middleton) are expecting their first child. Hooray!
And while there's plenty of speculation about the newest member of the royal family—and whether he or she will be lucky enough to inherit the famous Middleton derriere instead of the infamous ears of the Prince of Wales—we happen to believe that education is the most important matter up for discussion. And not just the usual schooling, either! Because if Hollywood's depictions of palace life are any indication, this kid is gonna need a very particular set of skills. So, in preparation for that moment when our pals Kate and Wills call us up for child-rearing advice, we've put together this easy list of the top five things their progeny ought to master from the outset!

Americans were dealt a royal flush this weekend with the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge—the dashing Prince William and his fashionista bride Kate Middleton. The young royal elite made their first trip to the U.S. since their grandiose wedding in April, and Hollywood pulled out all the stops. In the land of celebrity, the biggest A-listers became mere fans to the royal couple, who stole our hearts with their love and our wallets with their (by which we mean, Kate's) impeccable style, which we must emulate in any way possible!
Their California itinerary included participating in a charity polo game (one of Prince William’s favorite sports) at the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club, for which tickets went for $4000; another stop was in L.A. to celebrate the British Academy of Film and Television Arts’ "42 Brits To Watch" event; and the darling couple even spent some time with kids at the Inner-City Arts Academy.
We hope that Kate Middleton will be able to keep her eyes locked on Prince William during their Canadian vacation. Seeing that so many of our favorite hotties are actually neighbors from the North, we'd find ourselves very, very distracted. In honor of Canada Day, we figured we'd round up some of the most eye-catching dudes from that great land and tip our hats to their hotness.

Later this year, Drake is set to release his latest entry into the world of music, Take Care. The album's first single, "Marvin's Room," is a dreamy ode to heartbreak and drunk dialing. Listen, as far as we care, Drake can call us anytime!
The British are coming! The British are coming! (Albeit in sparkling gowns and classic tuxes instead of battle-worn red coats.)
Deadline is reporting that Prince William and Kate Middleton will make a stop in Hollywood during their impending U.S. trip to help kick-off the inaugural BAFTA Brits To Watch event on July 9. (Besides the newlyweds being British—obviously—Wills is apparently the president of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. Who knew?)
With the royals readying themselves to land in our most hallowed movie-making land, it stands to reason that we should prepare ourselves for the British invasion, cinematically. Luckily, Hollywood Crush has curated a handy viewing guide to get you in the monarchy mindset.
After months of speculation and headlines, today the world found out just who Kate Middleton had picked as her royal wedding dress designer. Kate looked sleek and sophisticated in an Alexander McQueen gown—designed by Sarah Burton, the label's creative director—when she married Prince William in Westminster Abbey.
An official statement from the royal family sums up why Kate chose the forward-thinking, U.K.-based fashion house, crediting it for combining "tradition and modernity with the artistic vision that characterizes ... McQueen's work." Sarah joined Alexander McQueen in 1997 and took over the brand's designing duties in 2010, after McQueen's unexpected death in February.
The Duchess of Cambridge joins a long list of celebrities who have donned McQueen for important public events. Here are some of our favorites:
In case you hadn't heard, Prince William and Kate Middleton got married today—an event of such monumental importance that nothing else, not even the end of the world, could distract us from covering its every glorious detail with painstaking care. The elaborate decor! The ancient rituals! The procession of increasingly-ornate hats on the heads of obscure noblepersons! Kate's arrival at Westminster Abbey on an actual unicorn!
...Well, okay, we're just making up those details, since we were not invited to the royal wedding. (Our invitation must have got lost in the mail.) But we're not bitter—and neither are the celebs who we rounded up to ask what they'd like to give to the royal couple on their big day.
Ke$ha mused, "I haven't met them, so it would be kind of awkward." But she got over her trepidation pretty fast, as she said, "I think I'd paint them something!" (YES! Because every married couple needs a random piece of art that's absolutely covered in glitter.)
It seems that the wedding plans for Jessica Simpson and her fiancé, former football player Eric Johnson, are moving along nicely. Sure, right now the world is obsessed with that other wedding (we're looking at you, Wills and Kate), but once that wraps up we can all focus on other nuptials. That is, once Jessica gets her plans in order.
"We're along! How far along? We're along," she told MTV News at the Us Weekly Hot Hollywood Style issue party Tuesday night in L.A.
Could we be anymore jealous of princess-to-be Kate Middleton? Not only did the 28-year-old land a prince of a fiance, but she's got a seriously gorgeous engagement ring to prove it! Kate stepped out with Prince William this week to announce the royal engagement, and the news wasn't all that got people talking; Miss Middleton's dark blue dress set tongues wagging too. Who else caught fashion watchers' eyes this week? Why, former Danity Kane member Aubrey O'Day! Yet, only one earned our admiration by proving her knack for effortless elegance, while the other majorly disappointed with a hairy misstep. Keep reading to see who this week's Style Superstar is!
Kate has big fashion shoes to fill as England's newest princess. After all, Will's mum, Diana, was the monarchy's unofficial fashion plate while she wore the crown, but it looks like Kate is more than prepared for her princessly duties. Case in point, her dress from the couple's engagement announcement in England on Tuesday was pitch-perfect. Kate wore a simple, dark blue, long-sleeved Issa London dress that was understated and elegant. In fact, the dress was such a hit that it sold out at British retailer Harvey Nichols in 24 hours!
The happily-ever-after announcement that Prince William and Kate Middleton will tie the knot in 2011 after eight years of dating, got us thinking about some of the grandest royal weddings to walk down the aisle of cinematic history. They're bold, beautiful (and sometimes gaudy), and we can't help but love them 'til death do us part. We bet you'll say "I do" to our list of favorite royal nuptials on film, too, but be sure to chime in with your own in the comments section as well!
Kirsten Dunst and Jason Schwartzman had a very, very formal ceremony when they married in Sofia Coppola's visually stunning, "Marie Antoinette." We hope that Kate and William have less of a hard time adjusting to married life than Marie and Louis did in the flick!
