Prince William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are having a baby, it was announced yesterday.
Catherine (30), was taken to King Edward VII Hospital in London with acute morning sickness and is expected to stay in hospital for several days.
In a statement on the couple’s website, the couple said they were ‘delighted with the news’.
The Queen, Prince Philip and other members of the royal family too are ‘delighted’.
British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Twitter, “I’m delighted by the news that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting a baby.”
In a statement on the couple’s website, they said, “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.”
The statement added, “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.”
Wills-Kate’s baby will be born third in line to the throne and a great grandchild to the Queen.
The last time a still-serving monarch got to meet a great grandchild born in direct succession to the crown was nearly 120 years ago.
