ROYAL BABY: DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE KATE MIDDLETON PREGNANT WITH THIRD CHILD (VIDEO)


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their third child, Kensington Palace has announced.

The announcement was made as the duchess was forced to cancel an engagement on Monday because of extreme morning sickness, or hyperemesis gravidarum.

In a statement, Kensington Palace said: “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.

“As with her previous two pregnancies, the duchess is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum. Her royal highness will no longer carry out her planned engagement at the Hornsey Road children’s centre in London today. The duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace.”

The announcement comes in the same week as their eldest child, four-year-old Prince George is to start school at Thomas’s Battersea, south London. His sister, Princess Charlotte, is two.

Her second pregnancy with Princess Charlotte was announced in September 2014, when she was treated at the palace for the condition.

Hyperemesis gravidarum affects about one in every 200 pregnancies and results in severe nausea and vomiting - with one of the main dangers being dehydration.

According to the BBC's royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell, said the couple had "clearly been forced" to make the announcement because of the duchess' condition.

"It is quite a significant week for them because Prince George is due to start at big school," he told BBC News.

"Presumably his mother would be keen to take him to that, [but] whether she is going to be well enough to do that remains to be seen.

"It had also been expected that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge would be taking a foreign trip this autumn," he added.

"Whether they will be able to do that or whether the duchess will be well enough to do that also remains to be seen."

Six weeks ago, the Duchess hinted that a third baby was on the cards.

During a visit to Poland, she was presented with a cuddly toy designed for newborns. She turned to the Duke and laughed: "We will just have to have more babies."

A spokesman for Theresa May, Prime Minister, said: "It is fantastic news and she passes on her congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge."
