Not even hecklers could stop Prince William and Kate Middleton from enjoying a visit to Quebec City (or chatting about future royal babies). The fashion-forward duo carried on their Canadian tour with a visit to Quebec's Freedom of the City ceremony yesterday, riding through the streets in a motorcade as fans cheered—and 200 hecklers jeered, many carrying French signs that translated to, "The king is me."

Clearly, Morrissey is not familiar with the adage "if you don't have something nice to say..."

Kate Middleton's selflessness will no doubt help her to be a great mom.
