Paris Hilton’s biggest fan is — Paris Hilton.

Birthday visitors to the partying heiress’ home in the Hollywood Hills were startled to see the number of portraits of Paris Hilton.

“Upon entry, guests were handed silver pens and told to write gushing messages on a gigantic portrait of the ever-modest party hostess,” a reporter from the London Mirror noted.

Hanging in the living room was an enormous picture of Hilton, and when guests entered the dining room — yet another “gargantuan” portrait of the heiress.

Royal wedding on the way?
Is Prince William heading for a wedding?

The U.K. tabs seem to think so, and are claiming that the military police have been informed of the second-in-line’s intentions to marry his long-time girlfriend, Kate Middleton.

The two met in 2001 and have been dating since 2003, but did not go public with their relationship until 2004. A spokesman for the royal denies that the couple is engaged.

Royal watchers are alarmed at the attention surrounding Middleton, and hope that she doesn’t get hounded by the media like another woman who married into the royal family, Princess Diana.
