The worst-kept secret in the UK is no longer a secret.
It's been confirmed that Prince William and Kate Middleton are expecting! "Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby," the palace said in a statement. "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."
The palace also revealed that Kate is "in the very early stages of pregnancy." They sort of had to reveal it, though, since Kate was admitted to the hospital for hyperemesis gravidarum -- in other words, really, really bad morning sickness. She's only expected to be there for a couple of days and will rest at home afterwards.
Huge congrats to the both of them!
What do you think of a new addition to the Royal Family?
