Prince William and Kate Middleton Expecting First Child

December 4, 2012

Rumors have been flying for weeks and on Monday it was officially confirmed that Kate Middleton is pregnant. Blair Stover has the royal details below.

St. James’s Palace confirmed what everyone has been thinking, that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their first child.

The royal family wanted to keep this news as private as possible, but on Monday the Duchess was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London due to suffering from acute morning sickness.

It’s assumed that Kate is in the early stages of her pregnancy, around 12 weeks along. The due date or the gender of the child was not announced.

The palace sent out this statement Monday, “Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby. The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news.”

Kate has cancelled her royal engagements for the week and is expected to rest at home after getting out of the hospital.

Congrats to the Royal couple!
