Royal Palace Forced To Announce Baby News, Along With Grueling Condition Affecting Kate
LifeAspire Staff 9/5/2017
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, more lovingly known as William and Kate, have continued Diana's legacy of charming the world with their undeniable grace and kindness. The royal couple, who married in 2011 with the blessings of over two billion people who witnessed the ceremony around the world, never quite lost that audience over the years, as they became parents to four-year-old George and two-year-old Charlotte.
Well, continuing their fandom and giving the people even more reasons to share into their happiness, is the news that William and Kate are going to be parents once again. According to People, Kensington Palace just dropped the announcement publicly. The statement read:
"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child."
Kate, who suffered with morning sickness (also known as Hyperemesis Gravidarum) during both of her previous pregnancies, is unfortunately not getting a break with the third one either. Sources claim that it was for this reason that the Palace decided to share the news early before the usual wait of finishing the first trimester.
Hyperemesis Gravidarum is rather serious and can cause complications. In fact she was hospitalized while she was pregnant with Prince George because of the very same condition. It can cause severe nausea and weight loss but in the more extreme cases hospital stays are a must so that the mother can be given fluid and nutrition through an IV. The palace is taking extra precautions to ensure that her pregnancy is as seamless as possible - and in turn she will receive medical assistance at the palace.
William and Kate have continued to live a life that by all accounts is more muted and humble compared to the royals that superseded them. They have also been open about the ups and downs of being parents of two young toddlers. Perhaps it is this honesty that makes them so relatable to us commoners and also a joy to follow along in their parenting journey as they welcome baby # 3.
Fans of Kate's fashion are also celebrating the news with extra enthusiasm, as they will get to watch the Duchess show off her growing bump in classy gowns, coats, and dresses.
According to the official announcement, the Queen and members of both families are said to be happy with this news and excited for the royal couple. In a video tweeted by a correspondent at The Daily Express, Prince Harry also shared in the happiness of becoming an uncle again by saying:
"Fantastic, great, very, very happy for them."
Speaking of Prince Harry, the birth of this child will push him to be the sixth in line as heir to the throne.
And thanks to the new measure passed by the British parliament shortly after Will and Kate's marriage, the new baby, whether a boy or a girl, will not pass Princess Charlotte in line of succession of the throne despite being a female.
The parents have yet to announce more details about the exact due date or the gender of their third baby. But that hasn't stopped the world from cheering and being happy on their behalf.
