The British royals will soon be welcoming a new prince or princess into their family.
Prince William, 30, and his wife, Kate Middleton, are expecting their first child, confirms the Palace.
“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby. 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 statement, released on Dec. 3, said.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 30, is currently in the hospital, due to acute morning sickness. She was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London, on the afternoon of Dec. 3.
The couple, who were married in April 2011, have expressed desires to start a family soon.
“We’ll sort of get over the marriage first and then maybe look at the kids. But obviously we want a family so we’ll have to start thinking about that,” Prince William told ITN, weeks after their engagement.
