Who can turn the world on with her smile? Who can take a nothing day and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile? Kate Middleton, of course (sorry, Mary --- for every generation there is a gap).

For many of us, the Royal Family is, well, ancient history. But Kate has captured the attention of the world. At least that's what the folks at Morton's Travel are betting on.

Morton's is offering a coach tour of Kate's hometown of Bucklebury, which includes the houses she lived in, the schools she attended. And according to the website Jaunted one stop will take you to the Old Boot Inn in Stanford Dingley, a village in Berkshire, where you can knock back a pint or two and console yourself with the idea that your loss will be William's --- nay England's --- gain come April 29. And, just for old time's sake, order up the sticky toffee pudding. Her fave.
