It’s a royal baby!
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting a baby, St James’s Palace announced today.
“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.”
Bur poor Kate, she is in hospital because of severe morning sickness!
“The Duchess was admitted this afternoon to King Edward VII Hospital in central London with hyperemesis gravidarum,” the St James’s Palace statement said.
“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.”
The royal baby will be born third in line and in direct succession to the throne. He or she will one day be a force to be reckoned with – future head of the armed forces, supreme governor of the Church of England and head of the Commonwealth, and subsequently head of state of 16 countries.
We have been waiting for the royal baby news since Catherine and William were married at Westminster Abbey in April 2011.
Congrats to the Royal Family!
