Kate Middleton pregnant

Kensington Palace announced that Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, formerly Kate Middleton, are expecting their third child. As with her prior two pregnancies, Catherine is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, an extreme case of morning sickness that often requires regular IVs for hydration.

While many seemed to be surprised about this announcement, Catherine gave a clue about her pregnancy in mid-July when she made a comment about needing to have more babies.

When this baby is born, Prince Harry will be knocked down a notch to sixth in line to the throne, but Harry doesn’t mind. He thinks the news about getting a new niece or nephew is “fantastic.”

This announcement coincided with the timing of the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death and Prince George’s first day of school, proving that life really does go on.

More information on this wonderful announcement and royal reactions are in the video below.

Bets are already being placed on what the name will be for the new baby. Currently, Alice and Arthur are winning. Alice was the name of Queen Victoria’s daughter, and also the Duke of Edinburgh’s mother. Arthur is not only the name of the legendary King but Prince William and Prince Charles’ middle names.

Other names include the Queen’s middle names, Alexandra or Mary. Philip and James also have a good chance of being considered. Philip is William’s grandfather, who is married to the Queen and James is Catherine’s brother’s name.
