It's Official! Kate Middleton is Pregnant!
Kate Middleton is pregnant – FOR REAL, this time!
While speculation about Prince William's royal heir has been swirling around for months, Buckingham Palace confirmed the big news this morning:
"Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby," read a statement from Buckingham Palace. "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.
But before Kate starts decorating the nursery, she needs to start feeling better. "The Duchess was admitted this afternoon to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London with Hyperemesis Gravidarum," the statement continued. "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."
Translation: The Duchess has "very acute morning sickness, which requires supplementary hydration and nutrients."
Congrats to the royal couple – we are thrilled for them. And if this story is going to be anything like their engagement and wedding (which I’m sure it will be), we will be hearing about EVERY detail of her pregnancy! It’s going to be QUITE a year!
