Here comes the bride... and royal dad!

The Duchess of Cambridge made her first public appearance since returning from her Asia tour when her father Michael Middleton walked a close friend down the aisle at a wedding on Saturday.

Family friend Thierry Kelaart chose Michael to give her away at her country wedding on Saturday because her own father died nearly two decades ago.

The last time he'd carried out such a role was April 2011 when Kate wed Prince William on a spectacular day watched by millions.

Prince William Not Dipping into $16M Fortune – Yet

Originally posted 06/28/2012 01:45PM

His late mother Princess Diana may have left him more than $16 million for his 30th birthday last week, but Prince William is not about to dip into the fortune – at least, not to buy a home for himself and wife Kate.

And, despite some reports to the contrary, he also has no plans to help his in-laws, Michael and Carole Middleton, buy their $7 million dream manor house in Bucklebury, about 55 miles west of London.

With their purchase of the seven-bedroom property, complete with tennis court on its 18 acres, set to be completed, a royal source tells PEOPLE it is not true William is helping to fund any of it.

In a scale that hasn't been seen for around 350 years, more than 1,000 boats created a magical flotilla along the river – with the Queen, 86, at its heart. She took her place on the 210-ft. Spirit of Chartwell royal barge, which was given a makeover and bedecked with 10,000 roses, carnations, sweet peas and red charm peonies for the cruise – the centerpiece of her Diamond Jubilee. 

Helping welcome her aboard were her grandson Prince William and his wife Kate.

Rainy and 48 degrees in London on Friday. No matter: The Duchess of Cambridge – with parents Michael and Carole, and sister Pippa – is off on a sunny vacation, PEOPLE has confirmed.

Passengers on a British Airways flight from London's Gatwick Airport to St. Lucia in the Caribbean were surprised to see the family in the first class section on Wednesday, a photographer blogged. Their presumed final destination: one of their regular holiday haunts, the private isle of Mustique.

It is believed that Prince William is not with them, as the search and rescue helicopter pilot is spending this week at his RAF base in Anglesey, Wales, after hunting last weekend on an estate in Spain with brother Prince Harry.

Middleton Family: Were Their Phones Hacked by British Journalists?

Originally posted 07/25/2011 11:25AM

The Duchess of Cambridge and her family may have had their phones hacked by British journalists, whose intrusion into royal circles was more widespread than originally believed, says a new report.

It was previously thought that only Prince William, Prince Harry and three royal aides had voicemails illegally intercepted. But other members of the Royal Family, as well as their family and friends, were also targeted – possibly including the Middletons – according to the U.K.'s Sunday Telegraph.

"It was much more widespread than was known at the time, and it involved a lot more people and a lot more hacking at all levels," a source tells the paper. The palace had no comment.

Even as she was officially becoming a Duchess and wife to a Prince, Catherine proved she was no royal pain to deal with!

Quite the contrary, says Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah Burton, who designed Kate's stunning dress for her walk down the Westminster Abbey aisle.

"It was made for her and has a lot of her personality in it," Burton told a group of shoppers Tuesday at a Saks Fifth Avenue event in New York City. According to WWD, the designer revealed the princess was absolutely lovely to work with, telling one customer that the Duchess of Cambridge was really low maintenance and that the collaboration on the famed wedding dress between them was 50-50.
