Members of the Royal Family chuffed with news of Kate Middleton's pregnancy

What is hyperemesis gravidarum

The British royal family has reacted publicly to the news Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their third child, with the best response coming from proud uncle Prince Harry.

Britain's Prince William and wife Kate are expecting their third child, their office announced, after the Duchess of Cambridge was forced to cancel an engagement due to severe morning sickness. Prince Harry told Sky that he hadn't seen Kate for a while but he "thinks she is ok".

Earlier, William shared his delight over the new arrival, who will be fifth in line to the throne.

The royal couple's other children are 4-year-old Prince George and 2-year-old Princess Charlotte.

And if everything goes according to plan, Prince William - who is also the President of the English Football Association - will get two weeks of paternity leave to enjoy the competition. Watch the video below to see what else William said about Kate's pregnancy!

Kate Middleton is pregnant!


It would appear that the royal family had to make the announcement about Kate's pregnancy for a few reasons.

Kate and Wills, both 35, married in 2011 and became parents to son Prince George two years later. 1 in 100 women are affected with the extreme symptoms of morning sickness known as Hyperemesis Gravidarum, meaning that they are sick multiple times throughout the day, and due to the excessive vomiting and extreme nausea struggle to keep food or even water down.

Prince Harry is "very, very happy" about the "great" news his sister-in-law Duchess Catherine is pregnant.

It was only this morning that Kensington Palace confirmed the news we'd all been waiting for, that Kate and Wills will be welcoming another bundle of joy into the world.

The Palace are said to have released the news early because the Duchess is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum and is unable to attend to her royal duties. Kensington Palace revealed the name of Charlotte's five godparents ahead of the ceremony and the group was, more than a little, surprising.

In recent days, on the eve of the 20 anniversary of Princess Diana's death, Princes William and Harry, along with Duchess Kate, visited a palace garden created to honor the late princess who died in a auto crash in Paris in 1997. When she was handed a cuddly toy meant for an infant, she reportedly turned to William and said, "We will just have to have more babies".
