Fourteen months after Catherine gave birth to her first child, Prince George, at St Mary’s Hospital in London, the Palace issued a statement that said: “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.”

During her last pregnancy, the Duchess suffered from severe morning sickness and had to be admitted to the King Edward VII Hospital in central London.
