And it’s lovely

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced yesterday that they are expecting their third child, with Prince William and Kate Middleton already sharing four-year-old Prince George, and two-year-old Princess Charlotte.

Taking to Twitter yesterday morning, Kensington Palace released a statement: ‘Their royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child. The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.’

The statement continued: ‘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 Homsey Road Children’s Centre in London today. The Duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace.’

The 32-year-old prince went on to reassure the press of his sister-in-law’s state, following the new that she is again suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Prince Harry told Sky that he hadn’t seen Kate for a while but he ‘thinks she is ok’.

No further information regarding due dates or names has been announced, but assuming that they have made the announcement after 12 weeks, we're expecting a March baby.

Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – and uncle Harry!
