Prince William and Duchess Expecting Another Baby

Reports from Kensington Palace said the Queen and members of both families were delighted to announce the pregnancy of the Duchess of Cambridge. The palace said that – as when she was pregnant with Prince George – the duchess was suffering from very acute morning sickness and was being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace.

Prime Minister David Cameron tweeted he was “delighted by the happy news that they’re expecting another baby”. The couple’s second child will become fourth in line to the throne, moving Prince Harry further down the line of succession.

Clarence House said: “Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child”, adding that the duchess’s morning sickness meant that she would no longer accompany Prince William on their planned engagement in Oxford.

The baby announcement came two months after the couple’s first child, Prince George, had his first birthday. Unlike when she was pregnant with George, the duchess is being treated at Kensington Palace and not at a hospital.

BBC royal correspondent Peter Hunt said this second pregnancy was likely to generate excitement but was lacking the constitutional significance of Prince George’s birth – as things stand the unborn boy or girl is not destined to be a monarch.
