Clarence House has just announced a statement to say that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant with her second baby.
The released statement says that William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are “very pleased to announce” that they are expecting their second child.
There has been months of speculation and hint-dropping about a second royal baby. Royal watchers felt that Catherine would echo Diana, Princess of Wales, William’s mother and try for two babies close together.
The couple’s first child, Prince George, was born 13 months ago on 22nd July. The Duchess of Cambridge experienced debilitating morning sickness with that pregnancy and needed hospital treatment. It is likely that she will be closely monitored during this pregnancy, while the media speculates on whether Prince George will have a baby brother or sister.
