President Barack Obama may not be the commander-in-chief of Homeland fans anymore.

Beguiling plot twists be darned, apparently, Prince William and Kate Middleton are also really into the intense Showtime series!

“He said, ‘Catherine and I are huge Homeland fans,” Damian Lewis told reporters Wednesday, referring to Prince William after the royal honored the English actor with an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE). “He said, ‘You appeared again the other night briefly, and we all got very excited.’ Which is true—but it was also on Sunday night, which means he is absolutely up to date with the latest episode, and I’m amazed they have time for that.”

So perhaps Will and Kate aren’t binge-watchers, instead preferring ther telly dramas to unfold on a week-by-week basis.

Lewis, whose [if we describe him it'll spoil everything] Nicholas Brody is no longer, er, active on the Emmy-winning series, also said that he was “stupefied” when he found out he’d be receiving an OBE.

“I had no idea, so it was a big, big surprise. It was a bit like being asked to be a prefect,” he added. “Now I have to be extremely responsible.”

And for those of you who have been going through Brody withdrawal, fear not. Lewis has a number of projects in the pipeline, including a TV miniseries adaptation of Hilary Mantel‘s Wolf Hall, in which he plays Henry VIII, and the Civil War miniseries To Appomatox, where he’ll be returning to yet another battlefield but this time as Union Army Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman.

You could get the chance to have dinner with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – but you need to dish out $100,000.

The fundraising gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York is one of the highlights of the royal couples 3-day US tour next month.

The event will raise money for their alma-mater, Saint Andrews University, where they first met in 2002 during an art history class and fell in love. It’s being held to mark the 600th anniversary of the historic university.

Tables of 10 are being offered to those willing to pay the high price tag, in addition to two VIP tickets and a chance to meet Will and Kate.

Plus, you’ll have the chance to mingle with all the other celebrities in attendance.

The gala is expected to host around 450 people.

An auction will allow attendees to bid on items such as an overnight stay at Highclere castle, where the hit show Downtown Abbey is set.

A charming, never-seen-before picture of Prince George emerged on social media last night.

The portrait shows the adorably chubby-cheeked royal, who would have been around ten months old, being cuddled by his glamorous mother and with his father Prince William standing behind.

According to sources, it was taken by photographer Jason Bell for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in March this year at the same time as a series of official pictures that were released to the media.

In line with other members of the royal family, it was commissioned by the couple to send as a ‘thank you’ to people involved in their then forthcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand.

The portrait, which was first posted anonymously on a photo sharing website before being picked up by royal enthusiasts worldwide, is contained in a frame embossed with William and Kate’s cyphers and featuring their signatures underneath.

There is no suggestion who the delightful gift was sent to, but a glass of champagne can be seen reflected in the glass frame.

A Kensington Palace spokesman confirmed that members of the Royal Family frequently sent photographs of themselves as gifts to members of the public.

A Kensington Palace spokesman said last night: ‘I can confirm it is a photo the Duke and Duchess used as official gifts on their tour to New Zealand and Australia. It was taken by Jason Bell before the tour.’

Etiquette for U.S. Journalists when Kate and William Visit New York

“Those wearing jeans or trainers will not be admitted and casually dressed members of the media will be turned away.” This is a rule that applies to journalists who will be covering the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s upcoming U.S. visit, according to the British monarchy’s official website.

Jackets and ties for men, and trouser or skirt suits for women, are the appropriate dress code when in the company of the royals, according to the statement, “out of respect for the guests of The Queen, or any other member of the Royal Family.” It’s made clear that the dress code does not exclude technicians/cameramen who might be present.

Guidelines on photographing the royal family can also be found on the website. “Members of the Royal Family are content with being photographed at most times during an engagement,” it reads, but not “while they have food or a glass in their hand or during a meal.”

Kate and William will arrive in New York City on December 7 and will remain in the U.S. until December 9. During their stay, they will meet with representatives of various charities, attend an NBA basketball game and pay their respects at the National September 11 Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center.

Kate Middleton & Prince William May Be Getting Prince Harry the Best Christmas …

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (aka Kate Middleton) looks amazing in a regal red dress while greeting patrons outside of the Norfolk Showground to attend the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices Appeal launch on Tuesday (November 25) in Norwich, England.

The 32-year-old pregnant royal showed off the tiniest baby bump in her gorgeous ensemble – and we’re loving her ponytail hairstyle!

Duchess Kate is reportedly thinking of getting Prince Harry a puppy for Christmas!

Kate knows how much Harry loves Lupo,” a source said (via Vanity Fair), “and how much joy he brings him, so it makes sense he should have his own puppy. Kate and William worry that Harry gets lonely living on his own, so a pet puppy would be a great solution.”

They’ve already reportedly made inquiries to Labrador breeders.
