It's official! The news the world's been waiting for since their wedding last April, Prince William and Kate Middleton are expecting their first child! The announcement, which was released by St. James Palace, read:
Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby. 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. The Duchess was admitted this afternoon to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London with Hyperemesis Gravidarum [morning sickness]. As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter.
Though the duchess is suffering from morning sickness, we've rounded up 12 gifts fit for a royal baby that should be sure to cheer any mama-to-be right up. We can't wait to learn more about the little heir on the way and watch Kate's sure-to-be-meticulous maternity style!
