Kensington Palace, the home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, announced this morning that Kate is pregnant with their third child.

Unfortunately, the Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, which is severe morning sickness some pregnant woman have. This caused her to cancel an engagement on Monday and the royals to announce the pregnancy earlier than they wished.

Queen Elizabeth II is reportedly beyond thrilled with the news along with Prince of Wales Charles.

The baby will join Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2. The baby has the opportunity to be historic if its a boy. For the first time in history, a boy born after Charlotte will not bypass her in the royal line. A measure passed after Kate and William’s wedding stated that the royal line will go in procession of birth, not sex. In the old days, a male would always bypass a female sibling.

Congratulations to the family! Hopefully Kate feels better soon.
