Kate Middleton Sends Leukemia Patient Hope In Personal Letter

Kate Middleton cancer letter

We can't imagine how happy Kate Middleton made 9-year-old leukemia patient Fabian Bate when she sent him a personalized letter, complete with St. James Palace letterhead.

The Duchess of Cambridge met the young boy while visiting the children's cancer center at the Royal Marsden Hospital, for which Prince William is serving as president.

In the letter the boy's family received last Friday, she praised his "belief and positive energy" and wrote:

"I was so touched by your strength of character. I will keep my fingers crossed that your health goes from strength to strength."

Kate's kind gesture proved words really can do wonders. The Bate family called the letter "a massive boost" to their morale which has diminished while watching Fabian battle the illness, saying:

"This is something to talk about with our family and friends. It's a real morale booster and it was really quite personalized to him and he has something to cherish for years to come."

The message of hope have come just in time for Fabian too.

He was first diagnosed with leukemia in 2006, but relapsed earlier this year and is awaiting test results that will determine whether he is able to receive a bone marrow transplant from one of his sisters.

We can't begin to imagine how tough this unfortunate situation is for Fabian and his family, but we wish them all the best as they continue to battle the life threatening illness.

Kim Kardashian To Copy William And Kate's Wedding Cake

It's no secret that Kim Kardashian is going all out for her upcoming nuptials to Kris Humphries.

But this is getting a little ridiculous.

She and Kris want their wedding cake to look just like the 10-tier cake William and Kate cut into at their wedding earlier this year.

A source says that

Mary Louise Parker Got Shoved By J.Lo!?!

Jlo Push Mary Louise

Everyone wanted to meet William and Kate at the BAFTA gala last weekend, but apparently there were some who wanted to more than others.

Jennifer Lopez reportedly shoved Mary-Louise Parker out of the way in order to meet the royals.

When the Weeds star was asked what the couple was like, she said:

I didn't meet them. I was shoved out of the way by Jennifer Lopez. Uh oh, I shouldn't have said that.

Damn!

We've heard of J.Lo's diva antics, but if this is true, well that is just rude!

Zooey Deschanel Vs. The LA Times

zooey deschanel vs la times

You tell 'em, Zooey!

In yesterday's LA Times opinion column, journalist Patt Morrison spoke out against Zooey Deschanel for saying the following about Downtown L.A. at the BAFTA gala, which was attended by the royal couple:

"I just don't want them to see the worst of L.A."

Here's what Morrison wrote in response:

"I can't believe Zooey Deschanel is really the snobby cow she came off sounding like Saturday evening."

"I cannot apologize enough to Ms. Deschanel that in some places, the sidewalks do not smell like Jo Malone candles."

When Zooey read Morrison's column, she took to her website to fight the comments. She claims that the quote Morrison took issue with was "taken completely out of context," and that it was meant to be funny.

More from Zooey:

"You also open your piece by calling me a 'cow', which might be your opinion, but I wish a journalist for the Los Angeles Times and KPCC had found a more sophisticated way of sharing a difference in perceived opinion."

Yeah, we're def on Team Deschanel here! It's clear that her comment was innocent enough, and calling her a "snobby cow" was very immature and inappropriate.

Who do U side with here? Zooey or LA Times' Patt Morrison?

William And Kate Meet Reese Witherspoon!

Kate Middleton And Reese Witherspoon Meet

Talk about the cherry on top!

After a weekend full of arts and crafts, dining with celebrities and just being fabulous, Duke William and Duchess Catherine were able to meet one last movie star before heading back over the pond.

Reese Witherspoon!

The royal pair met the Oscar-winning Tennessean at the launch of a wildlife conservation effort in Santa Barbara.

There the trio were seen smiling and laughing with each other, probably in discussions on how to save the world.

What a classy rendezvous! We love it!

David Beckham Greets The Royals!

Just a day before his wife gave birth, David Beckham welcomed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to El Lay.

The couple were joined by 200 guests for drinks and canapes at the home of Consul General and David made sure to be the one to greet the royal couple as they kicked off their visit in the City of Angels.

Meanwhile, David's wifey Victoria was at home, resting up as she was due any moment - and thankfully, she stayed off her feet as she gave birth the next day! David chatted with his pal William and gave him several signed LA Galaxy jerseys to give to charity.

David told Wills, "Victoria really wanted to come but she is just so tired at the moment. She sent you both lots of love. How was Canada? It looked amazing," in which he replied, "Don’t be silly, send her all our love and tell her good luck with it all. It’s been an amazing few days – we’ve been so lucky with all the incredible places we’ve been able to see and we’ve met so many fascinating people. It’s been amazing, amazing."

So polite, those Brits! Wish we could be in the middle of that English sandwich! Yum!
