Kate Middleton Is Pregnant!

There’s another royal baby on the ways as news has broken that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting her second child

Prince William and Kate Middleton are expecting their second child. Clarence House confirmed the news this morning, tweeting, ‘The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child.’

A second tweet states, ‘The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news that Their Royal Highnesses are expecting their second child.’


Clarence House released a statement, stating that The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum - like she did when she was pregnant with George.

'As with her first pregnancy, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum,' the statement reads. 'Her Royal Highness will no longer accompany The Duke of Cambridge on their planned engagement in Oxford today. The Duchess of Cambridge is being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace.'



The royal couple welcomed their first child, Prince George, in July last year and it’s not yet known when the family’s new baby is due. 

Stay tuned to keep up to date with the latest royal baby #2 news!
