Kate Middleton, Prince William Announce Pregnancy News
The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, 30, has confirmed she is expecting her first child with Prince William, 30.
“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby," read the statement released Monday. "The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news.”
Middleton was admitted to a London hospital with morning sickness and is expected to require several days of rest.
On Monday morning, British Prime Minister David Cameron congratulated the couple, saying, "I'm delighted by the news that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting a baby. They will make wonderful parents."
The couple has made public their desire to raise a family, from the time they announced their engagement. “We'll sort of get over the marriage first and then maybe look at the kids," Prince William said. "But obviously we want a family so we'll have to start thinking about that.”
Whether it’s a boy or girl, the child will definitely grow up in a beautiful home. Kate and William are relocating to a palatial 20-room apartment at Kensington Palace early next year. They are currently living in a farmhouse in North Wales, so that William can tend to his responsibilities as a Royal Air Force search and rescue helicopter pilot.
