Buckingham Palace issued a statement on Monday, saying that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting again. “The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news that their royal highnesses are expecting their second child”.

British Prime Minister David Cameron tweeted: “Many congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. I’m delighted by the happy news that they’re expecting another baby”.

Prince William’s office confirmed that Kate was again suffering from acute morning sickness and nausea, just as in the case of her first pregnancy. At the time, the duchess was admitted to King Edward VII’s Hospital Sister Agnes, due to the condition, called Hyperemesis Gravidarum.

As the same symptoms appeared in the early stages of the second pregnancy, the Duchess of Cambridge was required to cancel all official engagements.

The first son of the couples’ – and fourth in line to the British Throne – Prince George Alexander Louis, was born on July 22, 2013.

In August, William announced that, starting next year, he would work as an air ambulance pilot, in Cambridge and Norwich in eastern England.
