The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are already parents to Prince George, three, and Princess Charlotte, two, and will add a third child to their growing brood.
“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child,” a statement from Kensington Palace said.
“The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.”
The 34-year-old suffered from Hyperemesis Gravidarum during her first two pregnancies and is also experiencing it with her third pregnancy.
“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 statement said.
“The Duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace.”
