“Their royal highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child,” a palace statement says. “The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.”
Kate has severe morning sickness again
“As with her previous two pregnancies, the Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Her royal highness will no longer carry out her planned engagement at the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in London today,” the statement says.
“The Duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace.”
There’s no news yet on whether the couple are expecting a boy or girl. But royal protocol means it’s unlikely that the public will know until the birth.
The couple are already parents to Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2.
