    Pregnant Kate Middleton could very well be carrying twins, medical experts have commented - because the duchess is suffering from acute morning sickness. Duchess Kate is currently being treated in hospital for the ailment, otherwise known as hyperemesis gravidarum – a condition which is more commonly associated with women who are carrying twins. Now rumours are rife that the royal, who is married to Prince William, could be carrying not just one baby, but two. But if Kate is indeed carrying twins we won’t know for a good few weeks yet. In fact the duchess isn’t even at the 12-week...

Reportedly, Camilla was teasing the Duchess about her husband, Prince William's faithfulness. Ugh, can you believe that? Pot meet kettle, anyone?

    One of Spain's richest women, the Duchess of Alba, is reportedly giving away her personal fortune in order to marry a civil servant.The 85-year-old's personal wealth is estimated to be between 600m and 3.5bn euros (£524m and £3bn). The duchess's six children have until now opposed her plans to wed Alfonso Diez, who is 24 years her junior. Local media reports say she plans to get round her children by giving them their inheritance early. ''Alfonso doesn't want anything. All he wants is me,'' the duchess was quoted as saying earlier this year.

    Just two months ago, she accused her mother of horrific abuse in an emotional outpouring on American TV. Her late mother, Susan Barrantes, regularly beat her, the Duchess of York alleged during her reality show Finding Sarah. 'When she used to hit me because I didn't sit on my potty or wouldn't eat, a little vein would come up on the centre of my head near my red hair,' she said, adding that her mother called it the 'sign of the devil' and would shout, 'I'm going to beat that devil out!'

Mandrake can disclose that Fergie is in negotiations with Oprah Winfrey about making a six-part television series for the American chat show host's channel, documenting how she was "abandoned" as a teenager by her mother and the "devastating" effect that this had on her life.

    The Duchess of York was facing fresh embarrassment today after running up a bill of £6,500 using the Queen’s special mail service. The cash-strapped Duchess, 50, used the service to send out signed photographs and gifts to friends at home and abroad - and was warned she might be barred from using it further unless her debt was cleared. The disclosure that the Duchess, who reportedly has debts of up to £2 million, failed to keep up payments is just the latest in a series of damaging revelations about her finances.

    Oprah Winfrey, the ‘queen’ of American TV, has offered the cash-strapped Duchess of York her own prime-time chat show. Billionaire Oprah, 56, is launching her own cable channel, the Oprah Winfrey Network, next January, and last week called the scandal-hit Duchess to offer her a deal. A source close to Sarah Ferguson said last night: ‘Oprah made the call this week. They spoke in person and, for Sarah, the offer is a ray of light at the end of a very dark tunnel. ‘Oprah has known Sarah for some time and the Duchess went on Oprah’s show to explain herself...

    The Duchess of York has held secret talks with Princess Diana's lawyers about renegotiating her 'paltry' divorce settlement with Prince Andrew. Sarah Ferguson consulted Anthony Julius at Mishcon de Reya, who famously negotiated a £17million pay off for Princess Diana when she divorced Prince Charles. The figure is in stark contrast to the £15,000 a year which the duchess receives from Prince Andrew after their marriage ended after ten years in 1996.

    The Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson told a New York crowd today of her 'pride' in her life as she fights to save her reputation over the 'cash-for-access' scandal. Sarah Ferguson brushed off her personal crisis as she spoke as she hosted a breakfast for booksellers and librarians at the Book Expo America event in Manhattan. 'I think it is a real treat for me to be here today and I can't thank you enough for listening,' the tired-looking duchess told the supportive crowd. The former wife of Prince Andrew was exposed at the weekend after being filmed accepting a...

    The Duchess of York is "devastated" and "regretful" after she was filmed apparently offering to sell access to her ex-husband Prince Andrew for £500,000, sources said today. A News of the World video showed Sarah Ferguson promising to introduce an undercover reporter posing as a wealthy businessman to the Prince, who has been the UK's special representative for international trade and investment since 2001. The Duchess who said she could 'open doors' is expected in Los Angeles later today where she is scheduled to pick up an award for her charity work.

    The Duchess of York flicks back her distinctive auburn hair and leans towards the camera. 'The world is changing,' she confides earnestly. 'The future never more uncertain, with an increasing population and a scarcity of national resources.' The words 'Deforestation', 'Terrorism', 'Global Warming', 'Credit Crunch' and 'Famine' flick alarmingly across the screen. 'The demand for well-paid jobs that are spiritually enriching is far outstripping supply,' she continues in Sloaney vowels. 'I want to give my children a chance - the best possible chance.' All rather confusing, given that her children - Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie - are fifth and sixth...

    LONDON (AP) - Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will get a coat of arms on Sunday to coincide with her 58th birthday. The blue, red, gold and green crest features a boar taken from the crest of her father, Maj. Bruce Shand and a lion copied from her husband Prince Charles' arms, Charles' office said. Queen Elizabeth II took a "keen interest" in its creation, Clarence House added. The duchess' coat of arms also has a crown - the Coronet of the Heir Apparent - copied from Charles' design. It was restricted to the heir's crest until King Charles II issued...
