It is well known that the Duchess’s severe morning sickness, or Hyperemesis Gravidarum, means that the Royal Announcement had to be made earlier than is usual, but up until now, the general public has had no idea when the new baby might make his or her first appearance.
However, sources close to the Royal Family are saying that Kate is around ten weeks pregnant, which would give a due date for her second baby of April next year.
Despite the fact that sources are claiming that Prince George will get a brand-new baby brother or sister in April, there has yet to be any official confirmation of the Duchess of Cambridge’s due date.
However, a source close to the Royal Family is quoted as saying: “They are so excited that George will be getting a younger brother or sister next April and Kate’s just bravely fighting through this unwell stage under the guidance of palace doctors.”
Kate has been forced to cancel several events because of her Hyperemesis Gravidarum; she was unable to attend the Invictus Games and will not be accompanying Prince William on his trip to Malta.
A spokesman for Clarence House confirmed that the Duke of Cambridge would travel alone: “The Duke of Cambridge is honoured to represent The Queen on the visit, which commemorates the 50th anniversary of Malta’s Independence.”
