It’s Official!!! Buckingham Palace has officially announced today that Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is pregnant with her first child with husband Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge!! Rumors have been swirling about the possible pregness of the young Royals ever since they got married last year but those rumors have seemingly gained more credence in recent weeks. It was speculated that the royal couple would announce the pregnancy in December and here we are, the news has been officially revealed!! This is really fantastic news, isn’t it?
Prince William and his wife Kate are expecting a baby, they announced today. The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and members of both families are delighted with the news, said a royal spokesman. However, Kate has been admitted to a private hospital for treatment for a severe form of morning sickness known as hyperemesis gravidarum. St James’s Palace said in the statement: “The Duchess was admitted this afternoon to King Edward VII Hospital in central London with hyperemesis gravidarum. As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter.” Hyperemesis Gravidarum is very acute morning sickness, which requires supplementary hydration and nutrients. As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter. Last week, William sparked royal baby fever by accepting a romper suit from a well-wisher and telling her: “I’ll keep that.”
This is all SO damn perfect! I had a feeling the couple would wait at least a year after their wedding to get pregnant, so the timing is really spot on. With the holiday season upon us, most everyone is sure to eat up this baby news. As you may recall, we learned about a year ago that Great Britain was planning to make changes to the royal protocol of succession so that Kate and Wills‘s first child will be the first in line for the crown … even if the couple’s first child is a girl. OMG! I really want them to have a girl so that she will be the first British female royal to be born first in the royal line of succession. This is such happy, happy news. Much love and congrats goes out to the happy couple! Let’s hope that Kate is handling her morning sickness as best she can … and let’s hope we get to see a royal baby bump soon :)
