Happy news has just surfaced. Kate is pregnant for the second time. So, Prince William and his wife Kate will become parents to a new baby. The couple welcomed their first child, Prince George, in July.
The happy news was officially confirmed by the Buckingham Palace, on Monday. Naturally, everyone is excited to find out more about the new addition to the family. “The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news that their royal highnesses are expecting their second child,” an official statement said. Naturally, at this point no other details have been revealed by the couple linked to the pregnancy or when the baby is due.
The second child of the Duchess of Cambridge and of Prince William will be the fourth in line to the throne. This means that Prince Harry will become the fifth in the line of succession. The happy parents already received congratulations from many people, including the Prime Minister David Cameron. Cameron tweeted a message for the couple and claimed to be “delighted by the happy news that they’re expecting another baby”.
Apparently, the pregnancy is already causing Kate morning sickness, due to which the Duchess can no longer accompany her husband in his trips. The couple had planned a visit in Oxford on Monday, but Kate will be unable to attend it.
So, the announcement on the new pregnancy come only at about two months after the happy parents celebrated the first anniversary of Prince George. So, Prince George will soon have a baby sister or a baby brother. Kate is currently treated at Kensington Palace.
Even though the pregnancy is celebrated with joy, this second child may not be that much expected as the first born. The significance of Prince George’s birth had been a constitutional one, as the baby is destined to a monarch someday. Kate revealed her first pregnancy in December 2012. Back then, she suffered from severe morning sickness, which actually determined a hospitalization.
Hopefully, both the new mom and the baby will be healthy throughout the entire pregnancy. Kate previously said that she hopes she will have a baby girl as her second child, while she wanted a boy as her first born. Maybe, her wish will come true.
