Prince Harry was "terrified" ahead of his gruelling charity trek to the South Pole and concerned about letting the side down .
Prince Harry received a pop star reception with cheers and applause as his girlfriend Cressida Bonas looked on.
Plans reveal Prince George is to join Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's New Zealand and Australia Royal visit.
The Queen has visited Chequers where she and the Duke of Edinburgh had lunch as guests of Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha. It is the first time Her Majesty has visited the PM’s official country residence in Buckinghamshire since 1996.
The Duchess of Cornwall has given her backing to efforts to stamp out female genital mutilation (FGM), according to a leading campaigner.
Anti-FGM charity founder Nimco Ali said Camilla gave the "royal seal of approval" during a reception for the Southbank Centre's Women of the World festival, which starts next month.
The co-founder of the Daughters of Eve charity said: "Camilla said she thinks the campaign is terrific and she heard about the stuff we're doing. She said she was impressed with the work and wanted more information about the campaign."
Camilla's support comes after the Equality and Human Rights Commission today wrote to Norman Baker, the minister responsible for the Government's strategy to combat FGM.
In the letter to the minister, the EHRC expressed concern that the £100,000 fund identified for charities to raise awareness about FGM is inadequate.
The Duke of Edinburgh was given a real taste of Army life with some colourful barrack-room language as he visited the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards at Aldershot.
Normally, soldiers are on their best behaviour for a royal visit, but one player in a football match could not contain himself from complaining in no uncertain terms how tired he was after being substituted in a game between corporals and guardsmen.
Doubled up in pain and exhaustion on the touchline, the soldier appeared unaware Prince Philip was standing only five yards away as he went through a lexicon of swear words to describe his agony.
"Are you all right? asked the Duke, who was talking to a group of sergeants on the touchline. "No, I'm f*****," said the soldier, still bent double with his head down.
Philip, 92, no stranger to the odd swear word after a career in the Royal Navy, laughed and then continued to chuckle away to himself as the substituted player finally looked up and walked off looking slightly sheepish.
Campaigners have backed the Princess Royal for challenging the development of large-scale new towns and instead highlighting the benefits of limited expansion of rural villages.
The Campaign to Protect Rural England welcomed her intervention, saying it was important to have a "living countryside" with villages which grew "organically".
We want a living countryside, not a countryside of commuter villages or retirement ghettos. The important thing is that villages should grow organically, with the consent of those who live there, and that priority is given to creating genuinely affordable homes for people with strong employment or family ties to the area.
– Shaun Spiers, Campaign to Protect Rural England
The way to do this is, wherever possible, is to have a community-led process which identifies suitable sites for inclusion in local and neighbourhood plans. With this in place, development is more likely to be well located and high quality, and therefore win local support.
Princess Anne has advocated small-scale developments in villages, rather than 'big estates' as a solution to the rural housing crisis, according to The Telegraph.
Speaking just weeks after the Coalition discussed plans for two new garden cities, the Princess Royal entered the debate over Britain's housing shortage by asking planners if it was "really necessary" to build developments of up to 15,000 new houses.
Instead, small developments of between six and 12 homes could be scattered villages to make up the same number, she said.
She said: “Our battle is to argue the toss with real house builders that this has real value - and some local authorities, frankly, who would much rather invest in a large scale development.
“Maybe it isn't such good value if you have to build in the facilities that need to go with it".
Prince Charles has been visiting Saudi Arabia as part of a short tour of the Middle East.
The Prince of Wales joined members of the Saudi royal family to take part in a sword dance, known as an Ardah, in the capital Riyadh.
Charles was wearing the traditional robes for the ceremony, which was celebrating the 17-day-long Janadriyah Festival.
Other highlights of his tour included a visit to the Janadriya gardens and an old Saudi Arabian city.
The Prince is also visiting Qatar in what will be his second visit to the two nations in just under a year, and his 10th official trip to the Saudi Arabia since he first toured the nation in 1986.
The Queen has revealed she cannot helping looking at her Bafta Award, which she keeps on top of her television.
Her Majesty, who received an honorary Bafta last year in recognition of her contribution to the TV and film industry, made the revelation as she spoke to 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen.
Asked by actress Jane Horrocks what she had received her Bafta for, the Queen laughed, "Can you not guess? I've only done one thing!" to which Lenny Henry joked, "This is Helen Mirren, she's brilliant."
Bafta chairman John Willis previously dubbed the Queen "the most memorable Bond girl yet" for her role at the London Olympics Opening Ceremony.
The Queen and the Duchess of Cambridge met some of Hollywood's leading actors tonight as Buckingham Palace hosted a reception celebrating the UK's dramatic arts.
The event featured a who's who of leading film makers, entertainers and actors including director Steve McQueen and actresses Uma Thurman and Helena Bonham Carter.
The night was hosted by the Queen in her capacity as patron of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, also known as Rada.
The Duchess of Cambridge joined her for the evening wearing a striking red Alexander McQueen dress.
Prince William wants all ivory in the Royal Collection at Buckingham Palace to be destroyed, according to a leading primatologist.
Leading primatologist Jane Goodall told the Independent on Sunday that the Duke of Cambridge had told her he would "like to see all the ivory owned by Buckingham Palace destroyed".
Prince Charles has reportedly also asked for all ivory items at his Clarence House and Highgrove homes to be removed during the last few years.
Charles and William called on the world to turn its back on illegally traded animal parts like ivory and rhino horn in a video appeal earlier this month.
Illegal trade in animal parts such as rhino horn, tiger parts and elephant tusks is worth more than an estimated £11.5 billion each year.
