Prince William and Kate Middleton are expecting their 3rd child

Kensington Palace
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting a 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 the couple’s eldest child, four-year-old Prince George is to start school at Thomas’s Battersea, south London. His sister, Princess Charlotte, is two.
The baby will be fifth in line to the throne – bumping William’s brother, Prince Harry, down to sixth place.
