Kate Middleton Pregnant: Prince Charles Says He’s “Thrilled”

Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting their first child next spring, and Prince Charles has commented to journalists about the exciting news for the first time.

After joking about the Australian journalists that got through to the hospital with a prank call, he told press:

“I’m thrilled. It’s a very nice thought to become a grandfather in my old age, if I can say so…

“I’m very glad my daughter-in-law is getting better, thank goodness.”

Kate left the hospital she was being treated for acute morning sickness in today, with William by her side.

We’re so happy she’s on the mend, and that Prince Charles is so excited to be a grandfather! Aww! BS
