Kate Middleton pregnant: Duke and Duchess of Cambridge expecting third child

Britain's Prince William and his wife Kate are expecting their third child, the Kensington Palace announced today.

The Duke and Duchess have one son, George, and one daughter, Charlotte, aged four and two.

"The queen and members of both families are delighted with the news", the statement said.

The Duchess gave birth to Princess Charlotte of Cambridge just two years ago, where she also suffered from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, which causes severe morning sickness.
