In August, engagement reports surrounded Prince William and Kate Middleton as they holidayed together in the Caribbean. A month later Kate mysteriously disappeared from the scene. And as royal watchers ponder what is going on with the young couple - who have not been pictured together for more than two months - HELLO magazine exclusively sets the record straight.

This week's magazine, issue number 1047, contains an insider report on the second-in-line to the throne and his girlfriend, who next year will have been together seven years. Read the answers to the burning questions on everyone's lips, including why they haven't been seen together lately, and what's happened to the wedding plans.

There's also a closer look at Kate's younger sister Pippa, who's just been named the most eligible girl in Britain in a society magazine's annual poll. The chic 23-year-old, who works for a London party caterer, whose clients include Gucci and Stella McCartney, has risen in the social ranks over the last 12 months after being snapped out and about with Kate in the wake of her brief split from her royal beau.

Pick up your copy now for the full story and exclusive details of Kate's inclusion in Prince Charles' 60th birthday celebrations. Also in the current issue, Sinitta speaks about her newly-single pal Simon Cowell, who recently split from Terri Seymour, while Cheryl Cole explains why she loves the royal family.
