Let’s call this the royal rejoinder — Britain’s Prince George, who is just over a year old, is all set to welcome a sibling! A Kensington Palace spokesperson confirmed that Prince William and Duchess Catherine have a second baby on the way with a post on the British Monarchy Facebook page that read: “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child.The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.”
Though it is believed that Kate has not yet reached the crucial 12-week stage, severe morning sickness is preventing her from attending social engagements. As a result of her illness, Catherine was forced to cancel a planned trip to Oxford with Will (where he was due to open a Chinese studies building), making a public statement necessary. “As with her first pregnancy, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum,” the official statement read, adding: “The Duchess of Cambridge is being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace.”
While we hope all is well with these gorgeous royals, we can’t help but sneak in a giggle on account of royal rogue Prince Harry. When asked about his brother’s baby news, Harry joked that he will revel in his elder brother’s “suffering,” adding that he would “love to see him try and cope with” a girl. A royal princess… we’d all like that!
