The couple announced earlier today that they're expecting their third child together
You’ve probably heard the news by now, but if you haven’t… Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting their third child!
The announcement was made by Kensington Palace this morning, with a tweet reading: ‘The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child.’
The Queen and both families are said to be ‘delighted with the news’.
Now someone very close to the couple has spoken out about Kate’s pregnancy – Wills’ brother Prince Harry.
In a short video tweeted by the Daily Express‘s royal correspondent Richard Palmer earlier today, Harry was asked how he felt about the news while on his way to meet victims of May’s suicide bombing in Manchester.
Giving a thumbs up, the 32-year-old replied: ‘Fantastic, great, very, very happy for them.’
When probed about how Kate is doing, he said: ‘I haven’t seen her for a while but I think she’s okay.’
As with her previous two pregnancies, the Duchess is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum. This severe morning sickness means she’ll be unable to carry out certain royal engagements, including one at the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in London today.
Kate and Wills, both 35, married in 2011 and became parents to son Prince George two years later. Daughter Princess Charlotte arrived in 2015.
Poignantly, the confirmation that they’re expanding their family comes just days after they marked the 20th anniversary of the death of William’s mother, Princess Diana.
We’re sending all our congratulations to the royals at his happy time, and we’ll keep you updated with all the baby news in due course.
