Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting their third child, Kensington Palace confirmed. The Duchess of Cambridge is again suffering severe morning sickness, like with her previous two pregnancies.
A statement from 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 royal couple have two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Recently, royal author Phil Dampier told Life & Style: "When I spoke to Kate at a reception about 18 months ago, she jokingly said, 'If I got pregnant again now, I think William would be out the door!'"
"He's quite happy with a boy and girl. He feels they have enough on their plate already," he added.
Meanwhile, Prince William talked about fatherhood in a documentary with TV personalities Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly. The 35-year-old royal said: "I'm a lot more emotional than I used to be, weirdly. I never used to get too wound up or worried about things. But now the smallest little things, you well up a little more, you get affected by the sort of things that happen around the world whatever a lot more, I think, as a father."
"Just because you realise how precious life is and it puts it all in perspective," he explained. "The idea of not being around to see your children grow up and stuff like that. I remember my mother and father taking us to charities and organisations and showing us what goes on. And I think seeing such a broad spectrum of life is really important from a young age to give you a bit of perspective.
"You don't just live in a palace, it's very important you get out and you see what goes on in the real world," he added.
