Kate Middleton and Prince William have a pretty adorable family with Prince George and Princess Charlotte. But once again their family is growing as she is expecting again. It’s still pretty early in the pregnancy but there are some interesting details that have been released.
The Dutchess of Cambridge previously had a hard time with pregnancy due to health issues so how will this one affect her? What has the royal family said about the big news? And what exactly does this mean about the line of succession?
We decided to answer all of those questions. Here are seven things we know about Kate Middleton’s shocking pregnancy with baby number three.
1. The baby news has been released through Kensington Palace
The palace gave a statement announcing the big news. “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child,” read the statement. “The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.”
She is reportedly less than three months pregnant, but the early announcement was made due to her illness. This will most likely affect her schedule in the future given she has had a hard time with pregnancy in the past due to Hyperemesis Gravidarum.
The statement confirms this by saying she is going to miss her appearance at the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre on Monday. Kate Middleton has previously been hospitalized for the very same sickness during her other pregnancies.
