What the gossip mags say
Actors Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are reunited, and insiders say Pattinson is ready to make his commitment official after getting over Kristen's betrayal with another man last year, New Idea reports.
Stewart had always maintained she loved no one but Pattinson, and reportedly squealed with delight when he revealed marriage plans.
Pattinson, 26, was back in Los Angeles, where he had reportedly asked Stewart, 22, to stay while he made a movie in Australia.
After the two-month separation, the pair had let go of the bitterness that plagued the relationship after Stewart was caught cheating, New Idea reported.
The pair looked less than thrilled to be in each other's company in pictures showing them walking around their Los Angeles neighbourhood, but friends said Pattinson was more convinced than ever they were meant to be together.
The gossip mags are less optimistic about Prince Harry's chances with dancer and would-be actor Cressida Bonas, 24.
Both New Idea and Woman's Day report that Harry, 28, is head over heels in love, but Bonas is less enthusiastic.
She told her inner circle she was not convinced her 10-month romance with the prince was the real thing, and she wanted to keep the relationship casual, Woman's Day said.
A mutual friend said: "Harry is quite open about his strong feelings. Cressida, I think, still needs to be convinced."
Perhaps sensing heartbreak ahead, Harry had staff send secret invites to at least a dozen sexy stars for a big bash to be held in New York during his trip there in May. Invitees included Jennifer Lawrence, Scarlett Johansson, Vanessa Hudgens, and swimsuit model Kate Upton.
Another royal with issues, according to Woman's Day, is Monaco's first lady Princess Charlene, 35.
She was under enormous pressure to become pregnant and provide husband Prince Albert, 52, with a successor, the magazine reported.
South African beauty Charlene suffered a bitter blow when Albert's nephew and second in line to the throne Andrea Casiraghi, 29, announced his Brazilian-Colombian bride-to-be Tatiana Santo Domingo, also 29, had given birth to a baby boy.
Making matters worse, locals wanted the younger couple to rule Monaco after their marriage later this year, the magazine said.
"People feel let down that Charlene has not yet given them a royal baby, specially as Albert already has two illegitimate children," a palace insider explained.
Back in New Zealand, Woman's Day noted some weird coincidences in the lives of Fair Go co-hosts Gordon Harcourt, 46, and Pippa Wetzell, 36.
Both their families had three children - two girls and a boy - and the children in both families were the same ages: six, four and two. Harcourt's children were all three months ahead of the corresponding member of Wetzell's brood. To cap it off, Harcourt and Wetzell were married on the same day, February 11, 2006.
Returning to stories with a royal link, New Zealand Woman's Weekly suggested Pippa Middleton could have trouble finding a man her mother thinks is good enough, given that big sister Kate is the Duchess of Cambridge.
The younger Middleton was besotted with stockbroker Nico Jackson, won over by his charm, good looks, and impeccable manners. There was talk of her dropping a wedding bombshell on her family but mum Carole was not convinced.
"You can't blame her," the weekly quoted a friend telling magazine Now.
"Her other daughter is married to the heir to the throne so it's always going to be difficult for Pippa to find anyone to live up to William."
