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

    The Queen and both families are said to be "delighted with the news".

    As with her previous two pregnancies, the duchess, 35, is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, or severe morning sickness.

    She will no longer carry out her planned engagement at the Hornsey Road Children's Centre in London today.

    Catherine is being cared for at Kensington Palace, the statement said.


    The Duke and Duchess have one son, George, and one daughter, Charlotte, aged four and two.

    With the previous two pregnancies, the couple were forced to announce them before the 12-week mark because of the duchess being unwell with hyperemesis gravidarum.

    Her first pregnancy was revealed when she was just a few weeks pregnant with Prince George after she was admitted to hospital in December 2012.

    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.

    The hypocrisy of the Royal Family gets on wick. Only a few years ago, Prince Philip said people should have fewer children to reduce overpopulation but I guess he meant rich privileged people are excluded so more of them can continue living off the taxes of hard working people.

    I have next to zero time for Prince Philip.

    I do like Kate but I am surprised she is pregnant again - I thought Charlotte would have been a bit older by the time another baby came along.

    I get the impression William and Kate actually like each other.

    Not more Royal sprogs!

    Cant stand the insipid Waity katie, - never did an honest days work since graduating and hasnt got any personality and is bland and boring - and why does she dress like an OAP at times.
    or Work shy William - always moaning about something in his over privileged life

    Harry for King!! I love him! he has everything the above 2 havent and he has it by the bucket load

    Oh, I disagree with every possible word of that! :eek:

    Not that I have a vested interest over here and such.

    Meanwhile, Victoria Eastbrook of the Keir Hardie Estate also found out she is pregnant. She's going to work today because she's on a zero hour contract and can't afford to take time off when she's not feeling well because she doesn't survive on state handouts for income like the Royals.
