Prince William In US Weekly

The new issue of Us Weekly has all of the details on Prince William and Duchess Kate’s plans to start a family. “They’re excited at the prospect of becoming parents,” says a confidant of the couple, both 30. Now, “they are working on it. In a dream situation, they’d love to be a step closer at Christmas.” Adds a source close to Kate, “They have been on such a high since getting married. It’s time for the next step — Kate is hoping she and William can become parents in 2013.” Though the breathless bump watch started immediately after their April 2011 wedding, the couple had a top-secret plan all along. Their first two years of marriage would be devoted to work, and Operation Heir would begin only after their grueling royal tour of Southeast Asia finished up in September. “Once their malaria medication had run its course,” says an insider, “then it was safe to start. So it’s only been a matter of weeks.” Whenever it does happen, says a source, Kate, like any first-time mom, will wait until just after the first trimester to share the news wide. “It won’t be hidden,” says the source.

Lindsay Lohan

Also in the issue is an exclusive interview with Lindsay Lohan. With Hollywood ready to write her off for good, the troubled starlet tells Us she’s finally getting her act together. “People can think what they want, and the only thing I can do is prove them wrong,” says Lohan. As for the future, Lohan says she does want kids. “I want to adopt a son,” she says. But as for love, she continues, “I’m not focused on that yet. I want to do a ton of movies first. After I win an Oscar, I can start thinking about love. I think there are a lot of directors and producers who know I’m a good actress. I just want them to get past the misconception that I’m not reliable, because I am. I’m going to make them believe in me again.”

Also included below are this week’s Hot Stuff items which include the scoop on Taylor Swift hanging out with Harry Styles, Johnny Depp saying “I love you” to Amber Heard, Katy Perry ducking to avoid ex Russell Brand, and Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum’s wedding plans.


 Harry Styles

TAYLOR SWIFT: Hanging Out With Harry!

The singer holds hands with the One Direction heartthrob

Taylor Swift
Another 18-year-old for Taylor Swift? The singer, 22, welcomed a special visitor as she rehearsed for her live X Factor performance on November 15: One Direction’s Harry Styles! “They lit up when they saw each other and he gave her a giant hug,” says a source of the two (who also hung out at the MTV Video Music Awards on September 6). As the day wore on, Swift got even mushier over the guy. “She was a puppy dog,” marvels another insider. “She didn’t let him out of her sight!” Not that the Brit boy-bander was in a hurry to leave. He sat with her mom, sang along while she practiced and even walked hand in hand with Swift on the set, says a witness. When she finished performing, “Harry picked her up and carried her to the trailer!” adds one insider. The unattached Styles, explains a pal, “acts like he has a crush. They email a lot!” And since splitting with Conor Kennedy, 18, last month, Swift has been ready to mingle: “She doesn’t want to be single.”

JOHNNY & AMBER: He Told Her ‘I Love You!

Amber Heard

Johnny Depp
Clandestine couple no more! Johnny Depp and girlfriend Amber Heard indulged in a rare date night out at Los Angeles’ AV Nightclub November 5. After arriving at 11 p.m., the twosome — who kicked off a romance in late 2011 during their Rum Diary press tour — settled in on the patio, where, a witness says, they sipped nonalcoholic beers sitting side by side. “They were flirty and engaged,” says the source. And their affection was no act. Another insider says the actress, 26, “was telling people they were officially together” at a Gucci party October 27. (Depp, 49, and Vanessa Paradis, 39, split in June 2012 after separating in 2010.) A pal says the Lone Ranger star is serious about the starlet: “They have said ‘I love you.’ ”

Katy Ducks to Avoid Russell

Katy Perry

Think fast! Katy Perry crouched under her table when she spotted former husband Russell Brand at the Beverly Hills Polo Lounge, where she was dining with beau John Mayer, 35, November 11. “The hostess almost seated Russell next to Katy,” a witness tells Hot Stuff. “Katy’s face was like, ‘Oh, s--t!’” After the staffer realized her error, she ushered Brand, 37, to another section. When the comic learned Perry, 28, was there, he couldn’t help but gawk. Says the source, “On his way to the bathroom, he looked at them through a window!”

Ashley’s ‘I Do’ Plans

Ashley Hebert

Bachelorette sweeties Ashley Hebert, 28, and J.P. Rosenbaum, 35, are giddily gearing up for their walk down the aisle. A source says Hebert not only scored star planner Mindy Weiss for the December 1 event in Pasadena, California (airing on ABC December 16), she’s gaga over her gown: “Ashley can’t wait for people to see it!” Invitees getting the first glimpse include show alums Emily Maynard, Trista and Ryan Sutter and (awkward alert!) ex-loves Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez!

Kate Middleton has a interesting story on how Kate Middleton Takes on Charity Work, Embracing Princess Diana’s Legacy.

Kate Middleton was out and about over the weekend supporting various causes and charities around London — a royal role that is becoming part of her daily routine.

The other day, the Duchess of Cambridge was supporting a children’s charity by participating in camping activities.

On Friday night, she attended a charity theater night for 150 kids from one of her personal charities, The Art Room.

There’s still the traditional pomp and circumstance of this Jubilee year to be dealt with, including events like Saturday’s Trooping the Colour, where Kate, her husband Prince William and brother-in-law Prince Harry were all on show.

But it’s the charity work of the young royals that’s beginning to catch the eye.

All three show an awareness of those less fortunate than themselves, which is relevant in these difficult economic times, and something the two princes seem to have inherited from their mother, Princess Diana, who died in a car crash in Paris in 1997.

“She very much wanted to take us away from the royal aspects of life … and get us to see the rawness of life,” Prince William said in an earlier interview. “One of the biggest lessons I learned is just how lucky and privileged so many of us are, particularly myself in the conditions that I live and the lifestyle I lead.”

Both princes have been keen to display their sense of duty with their military careers. And with Prince Harry’s high profile work with kids in Africa, and William’s involvement with the homeless, the echoes of Diana’s legacy are easy to see.

Now Kate is the latest recruit to this generation of royalty embracing charity work.

“I would say that William, Kate and Harry together are like the three musketeers. They’re invincible,” British royals expert Victoria Arbiter said.
