Prince William and Kate's much-anticipated child will have his or her own special title, to be bestowed upon the new arrival come naming time.

Baby Cambridge will be a prince or princess, Queen Elizabeth has decreed - making it HRH Prince or Princess "Name" of Cambridge.

The child will take his or her title from the household that was created when William, 31, was made a duke at his 2011 wedding.

It is believed, among dignitaries, that this will be the first Prince or Princess of Cambridge.

The style of the child's title mirrors that of an illustrious relative, his or her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. "It follows the same form as the Queen had when she was a child. She was HRH Princess Elizabeth of York, of course," a source tells People.

This is also the same style that William's cousins Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie of York use.

It was earlier this year that the Queen declared that the new royal baby would be titled HRH Prince or Princess.

A formal announcement in the London Gazette in January read, "The Queen has been pleased by Letters Patent under the Great Seal of the Realm dated 31 December 2012 to declare that all the children of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales should have and enjoy the style, title and attribute of Royal Highness with the titular dignity of Prince or Princess prefixed to their Christian names or with such other titles of honour."


George Clooney and Stacy Keibler have split.

The couple, who began dating two years ago, apparently want different things in life.

"Stacy called it quits. She wants to have children and a family someday. She knows where George stands on that," a source close to the couple tells People exclusively. "They talked and they quietly stopped being a couple several weeks ago."

The source also says Clooney, 52, and Keibler, 33, will remain on good terms: "They talk every day. They were friends before they started dating and they'll be friends after. It was a friendly [breakup]."

Although she wants to be a mom one day, it's clear Keibler is already a dedicated godmother. She tweeted a birthday wish to her goddaughter with a series of hashtags - "#mylove #myheart #mygoddaughter" - on June 10, before posting an inspiring message the next day about going through tough times. "Trying times are not the times to stop trying," she tweeted.

The news of a split comes after the pair had spent a lot of time apart. They were last photographed together in March in Berlin, where Clooney was filming his upcoming drama "Monuments Men."

In a recent interview with People to promote her new show "Supermarket Superstar," premiering July 22 on Lifetime, Keibler spoke about her hectic schedule and her desire to travel this summer.

"My schedule is keeping me pretty busy until the show airs, and then hopefully I'll get the chance to go to Europe," she said.

But while Clooney was photographed boarding a boat near his Italian villa on July 4, Keibler partied with girlfriends in Los Angeles at a starry bash thrown by top Hollywood manager Guy Oseary and hosted by DeLeon Tequila.

"They haven't seen each other in a while, and they've both been working so much, so in recent months, they've started growing apart," a second source says.


Grammy Award-winning singer Lauryn Hill reported to prison on Monday, entering the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Conn., for a three-month sentence, People reports.

The punishment, which includes an additional three months of house arrest after she checks out of prison, was sent down in May after she was found guilty of failing to pay nearly $1 million in taxes.

She recently posted an open letter on her Tumblr page, where she ranted about slavery and the IRS. "I shuddered during sentencing when I kept hearing the term 'make the IRS whole' ... make the IRS whole, knowing that I got into these very circumstances having to deal with the very energies of inequity and resistance that created and perpetuated these savage inequalities," she wrote.

Hill, 38, began her singing career with The Fugees and went on to earn five Grammy awards for her 1998 debut solo album, "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill." She will reportedly be housed in the general population of the minimum-security prison.


"Big Brother's" watchful eye is speaking out.

The CBS reality hit's 15th season is stirring up controversy after housemates were overheard using racial and homophobic slurs during the program's 24-hour live feeds, which were later exposed on an episode, and now host Julie Chen is addressing the comments, most prominently made by Aaryn Gries and GinaMarie Zimmerman. Spoiler alert: She's not pleased, according to E! News.

"When I first found out that Aaryn, who is a 22-year-old girl, made anti-gay, anti-black and anti-Asian comments, I have to be honest, the Asian ones hit me the most. It stung," Chen said during a taping of her daytime show "The Talk." "I took it personally. I'm a human being."

Chen continued, "The year is 2013. I felt ignorant. There are still people in the country who feel and act that way? Yes, there [are]. It made me sad."

Gries was overheard making racist comments about fellow contestant Helen Kim, saying she should "go make rice," and later saying, "I probably look like a squinty Asian right now." She later mocked Asian nail salon workers, saying, "Why you no have boyfriend? It's because you don't want long nail!"

The housemate, who was recently fired by her modeling agency for her remarks, also referred to a gay contestant as "a queer."

Zimmerman, who was also fired from her job as a pageant coordinator, also drew criticism for saying African-American contestant Candice Stewart was on the dark side "because she's already dark."

Chen isn't the only one commenting on the controversial comments made by Gries and the other houseguests: CBS issued a statement saying the racial remarks were "not condoned" by the network and some fans have started a petition to have Gries kicked off the series.


Beyonce has a stepmother.

Her father and former manager, Mathew Knowles, got married Sunday. His representative told The Associated Press on Friday that he has wed former model Gena Charmaine Avery in Houston. The pair had been engaged for a year and a half.

The 48-year-old Avery is a realtor. The 61-year-old Knowles guided his daughter to superstardom with the group Destiny's Child and later in her solo career; she released her father as her manager in 2011.

Knowles, head of Music World Entertainment, still manages several gospel acts including Grammy-winner Le'Andria Johnson.

Knowles and Beyonce's mother, Tina, divorced in 2011 after 31 years of marriage and two children - Beyonce and her sister, fellow singer Solange.
