The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their third child - but were forced to tell the world early today because Kate has again been struck down with severe morning sickness.
剑桥公爵和公爵夫人正在期待他们的第三个孩子 - 因为凯特再次因为严重的晨吐而被击垮，他们被迫今早告诉世界这个消息。
Kate, 35, who is believed to be between eight and 12 weeks pregnant, battled Hyperemesis Gravidarum during her first two pregnancies and was hospitalised when expecting George in 2012.
Today she was forced to miss her planned engagement at the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in London today, and is being cared for at home at Kensington Palace.
George, four, and Charlotte, two, will have a new sibling next April or May and the happy news was announced in an official statement, which said: ’Their Royal HighnessesThe Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child’.
Her Majesty the Queen said she was ’delighted’ to have a sixth great-grandchild and the child will be born fifth in line to the throne, bumping uncle Prince Harry into sixth place.
Today Harry gave a thumbs up on a trip to Manchester and said it will be ’fantastic’ to have a new niece or nephew, adding: ’I am very, very happy for them’ and said his sister-in-law’s is doing ’ok’.
The race to guess the baby’s name has already started with bookmakers saying Alice or Victoria are the clear favourites if it’s a girl and Arthur or Albert are most likely of it’s a boy.
