The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their third child in April, it has been revealed.
Kensington Palace said William and Kate were “delighted” to confirm the month their baby is due to be born.
The Duchess has been suffering from severe morning sickness, hyperemesis gravidarum, which affected her during her two previous pregnancies.
She made a surprise appearance at a royal engagement on Monday where she danced with Paddington Bear at an event involving East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices for which she is a patron.
The royal baby should arrive the month before the couple’s daughter, Princess Charlotte, celebrates her third birthday.
Their eldest child, Prince George, was born in July 2013.

It is likely that the Duchess has now had her 12-week scan.

Soon after the news of the pregnancy was revealed in September, William, who was formerly a pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance, revealed there was “not much sleep” being had at the main family home of Kensington Palace as Kate fought her severe morning sickness.
“We need Catherine to get over this first bit and then we can start celebrating,” he said at the time.
“It’s always a bit anxious to start with, but she’s well.”
