The Duchess of Cambridge took a trip down memory lane Friday during a visit to her former prep school, St. Andrew's, in Berkshire, England, where she met with students, played some field hockey and even spilled her cute childhood nickname.

Now, as the couple marks their 65th anniversary, the gruff, no-nonsense personality of Prince Philip, 91, is being celebrated in a book of his many quips and verbal faux pas. Prince Philip: Wise Words and Golden Gaffes has been compiled by Phil Dampier and former royal correspondent Ashley Walton.

It was something of a sister act for the Duchess of Cambridge on Sunday at Wimbledon: She had Pippa by her side when she cheered on Brit Andy Murray at the men's final.
Big tennis fans (and players), Kate, 30, and Pippa, 28, clapped enthusiastically as Murray took the early lead against Roger Federer, and they were seen sharing a giggle in the royal box above Centre Court.
In the end, though, Federer bested Murray and took home his seventh Wimbledon title, and the sisters stood as Murray gave an emotional speech after his defeat.

Time to close the books and roll up the sleeves.
Fresh out of Newcastle University with a degree in English and history of art, Princess Eugenie, 22, is going to join sister Beatrice, 23, who is doing her financial services exams, in the working world.

After getting her degree this week, Eugenie said: "Newcastle University has given me such an incredible three years. I have had a wonderful time ... learning and having a fantastic experience."

One young designer is going to get his or her kicks outfitting the Duchess of Cambridge in new shoes.
Six students from the footwear design program at De Montfort University in Leicester, England, have submitted designs to Kate – who will select which pair of shoes she likes best when she visits the university on March 8.
The visit kicks off a tour around the U.K. by Kate's grandmother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth, to mark her 60 years on the throne.
Among the shortlisted designers – Sam Sawkill, 27, Summer Spencer, 23, Kay Yeng Cheng, 22, Tabitha Duffield, Becka Hunt, 20, and Mei Chun Lai, 21 – aesthetics were important.
"I wanted to make a cool and sexy shoe for a formal occasion," said Sawkill.
