Kensington Palace confirmed Monday that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting her second child, which the media are tentatively calling New Royal Baby. According to the official statement, the Duchess is once again experiencing Hyperemesis Gravidarum, the severe morning sickness that plagued her first pregnancy, and has already been forced to cancel a planned appearance because of it.
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.
As with her first pregnancy, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Her Royal Highness will no longer accompany The Duke of Cambridge on their planned engagement in Oxford today. The Duchess of Cambridge is being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace.
Last time she was pregnant, it seemed perhaps moderately stressful for Kate Middelton to have to adjust to her changing body, negotiate her fluctuating hormones, and protect the British royal family's unborn heir under the global public's terrifyingly alert hawk-like gaze, but apparently she loves it.
