Britain's Prince William and his wife Catherine are expecting a baby, destined to be the country's future monarch, the prince's office said on Monday(December 3). The couple, officially known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, married in April last year, prompting a global media frenzy and there has been much speculation, particularly in U.S. gossip magazines, about a possible pregnancy. The statement said Catherine was in the King Edward VII Hospital in central London suffering from very acute morning sickness. She is likely to remain there for several days. Reality star and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian was the most-searched person on Yahoo! in a year when online searches were dominated by big news stories and pop culture obsessions, the search engine company said on Monday. A spokesperson for Yahoo! explained that Kardashian's "notoriety has kept her at the top," citing her ongoing divorce saga with ex-husband Kris Humphries, her high-profile relationship with rapper Kanye West and her E! channel reality shows. Yahoo! compiles its annual search lists based on aggregated visitor activity on the network and billions of consumer searches. British author J.K. Rowling's first adult novel "The Casual Vacancy" will be adapted for the small screen, the BBC announced on Monday, unlike her Harry Potter adventures which went on to become one of the biggest film franchises of all time. Rowling is expected to collaborate "closely" on the project, with the number and length of episodes to be decided once the adaptation has formally begun. Song-writing legend Carole King was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Monday (December 03). The 70-year-old King has seen 400 of her compositions recorded by more than 1,000 artists, resulting in 100 hit singles.
