Prince Harry vs. Alex Skarsgard
Training Their Asses Off
For South Pole Showdown
11/10/2013 7:42 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Prince Harry, Alexander Skarsgard, and "300" actor Dominic West are getting down to the wire before their epic race to the South Pole later this month -- and TMZ has obtained awesome photos of their training sessions from around the world.
FYI, Harry, Alex, and Dominic (each leading a separate team) are set to depart on their subzero 208-mile journeys to the South Pole in about three weeks -- with an ETA of December 17 -- and they've been training like madmen for the last year.
Polar guide Inge Solheim -- who is training the three men -- tells TMZ, they're all in phenomenal shape, prepping by ice climbing, skiing, and hiking around the world.
For example, the Skarsgard pics show the "True Blood" actor heavy backpack training in the Santa Monica mountains in September -- then camping, cross-country skiing, and cold weather conditioning in Norway in October.
The trek is being planned to raise awareness for a charity called Walking with the Wounded, which raises funds to benefit wounded veterans around the world.
May the best man win, but we still gotta ask ...

Post-Baby Bump, Set ...

Kate Middleton allegedly had a baby 3 months ago -- but there is zero proof of that in these pics of the Duchess of Cambridge flashing her royal midriff all over a volleyball court.
Prince William's wife showed up for a public appearance in London yesterday, sporting wedge heels, and a banging bod that made everyone forget she was ever pregnant.
Kate gave birth on July 22 to Prince George ... and obviously hit the gym on July 23.
Women ... begin hating. Guys ... continue wishing you were Prince William.

The Royal Replacements

Millions of people around the world let out a collective "awwwww" as The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out and showed off their new baby king.
However, there were some who couldn't have cared less about all the royal hoopla... so we've replaced the royal rugrat with some random stuff for sheer entertainment purposes.
Royal Baby Name
A Big Miss
7/24/2013 12:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Prince William and Kate Middleton need to cut loose from tradition -- naming their kid George Alexander is right out of the royal playbook -- which dare we say is getting a little dusty.
We're not saying the royals need to steal a page from Gwyneth Paltrow and name the kid after fruit, but it wouldn't be terrible to give the kid a name that's a little more fun than "George."
No offense, Mr. Clooney.
But let's face it ... the most awesome royal name ever is not held by a royal at all ... it's held by a Jackson -- All hail Jermajesty!

BOW DOWN BEFORE ME, PUNY MORTALS

Here it is ... THE ROYAL BABY ... 's head ... and fingers ... so everyone can go back to their lives. Please.
Kate Middleton and Prince William debuted their infant overlord moments ago in London -- the third in line for the British throne -- and guess what? The kid is totally normal. Hooray.
Now that would be a real story. Not that this isn't a real story.
Blimey, It's a Boy!!!

1:14 PM PT -- Prince William's daddykins -- Charles the Prince of Wales -- has just released a statement on the birth of the baby ... saying, "Both my wife and I are overjoyed at the arrival of my first grandchild. It is an incredibly special moment for William and Catherine and we are so thrilled for them on the birth of their baby boy."
Also, it sounds like he hasn't seen the baby yet ... because he added, "We are eagerly looking forward to seeing the baby in the near future."
12:53 PM PT -- THE DOCUMENT HAS ARRIVED!!!! And it doesn't say anything interesting at all, except that Kate "safely delivered of a son" and she and the baby are doing well. Woo-freaking-hoo.
12:45 PM PT -- The medical document is currently en route!!! WHAT WILL IT SAY?!?!?
It's official, Prince William has secured his heir ... and millions of Brits just spilled their tea ... KATE MIDDLETON GAVE BIRTH TO A BABY BOY!!!
According to Buckingham Palace officials, Kate popped at precisely 4:24 PM BST. The boy weighed in at 8 pounds 6 ounces.
After Prince Charles and William, the baby will become third in line to the British throne. Sorry Harry.
We still don't know the baby's name -- but we DO know he's got some iffy genes in the hair department, so we gotta ask ...

Prepare for the onslaught of new British Royal collectible tea sets, plates, shirts, hats, etc. -- 'cause the Royal great-grandbaby is due any minute.
The Queen's people have released a statement saying Kate Middleton is officially in labor at a hospital in London.
Hundreds of Brits have already taken to the streets to await their new master.
The Monarchy is still not saying if the new baby is a boy or a girl.
We know ... once Kate pops out the little squirt, a document will be signed by a member of the official royal medical staff and driven under royal escort to Buckingham Palace.
The medical document -- which will contain the fundamental birth info (sex, weight, time of birth) -- will be displayed on an "ornate easel" at the palace.
We're told the name will not be released straight away.
Stay tuned ... we'll have the news as it emerges from Kate's vagina.
