The news was revealed in a statement from Kensington Palace which read: “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 new baby will be fifth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte can expect a new baby brother or sister early next year.
As with her previous two pregnancies, the Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is a complication of pregnancy that is characterized by severe nausea and vomiting such that weight loss and dehydration occur. Signs and symptoms may include vomiting several times a day and feeling faint. It is more severe than morning sickness. Often symptoms get better after the 20th week of pregnancy but may last the entire pregnancy.
We wish Kate all the best for her pregnancy, and hope she downloads the Kicks count app!
