More than one year after their dazzling royal wedding at Westminster Abbey, London, Prince William and Kate Middleton are now expecting a child.
This good news was revealed by St. James’s Palace today which issued a statement on behalf of the royals. It read:
“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby. The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news.
“The Duchess was admitted this afternoon to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London with Hyperemesis Gravidarum. As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter.”
Kate was diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe form of morning sickness that affects one in 50 women – and occurs more often when moms-to-be are expecting twins.
