Kate Middleton and Duke William expecting their third child!
The Duke and Duchess revealed the news of Kate’s pregnancy recently. It was not a planned announcement. It came early owing to the morning illness of Duchess Kate. The delivery is expected in April or May next year. She is believed to be somewhere into the 8th or 12th week of her pregnancy.
What forced them to make the announcement?
Morning sickness has been disturbing for the Duchess. She fell prey to it earlier and missed an engagement. The engagement was at Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in London. She is being taken care of now at Kensington Palace.
Tough Battles in the Pregnancies
The thirty five-year-old Duchess is prone to pregnancy illness. Her first two pregnancies were also difficult. She suffered from Hyperemesis Gravidarum at the time of George in 2012. She was ill while carrying Charlotte as well. Kate was hospitalized both the times.
Uncle Harry was the first to express joy
Prince Harry was the first one from the royal family to express his delight on the matter. Harry exclaimed that he was ‘very, very happy’. He wished his brother William and sister – in – law Kate on the pregnancy news. He added that Kate was ‘okay’ after she suffered Hyperemesis Gravidarum.
The Shocking announcement
The news came in an official statement. It said that their Royal Highness The Duke and The Duchess of Cambridge were pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child.
Reaction of The Queen
The Queen expressed her happiness on the news. She said that she was ‘delighted’ for her 6th great-grandchild. The baby will replace Prince Harry to be the fifth in line to the throne.
