Kate Middleton is pregnant with her and Prince William’s third child, it was announced on Monday morning. According to an official statement released by Kensington Palace on September 4, “Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child. The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.”

The statement noted Middleton is struggling again with a rare condition, hyperemesis gravidarum, which has caused her severe morning sickness during her previous two pregnancies. As a result, Middleton canceled a planned appearance in London that was slated for Monday morning. “As with her two previous pregnancies, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Her Royal Highness will no longer carry out her planned engagement at the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in London today. The Duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace,” added the press release.

The exciting announcement comes just as Middleton and Prince William prepare to take Prince George to school for his first day at Thomas’s Battersea, a private school in south London. Before his first day of the academic year, the Duchess of Cambridge joked, “[Prince George has not got] any idea what’s going to hit him.” His parents are expected to accompany him on Thursday.

Middleton and Prince William welcomed Prince George in July 2013. Their second child, Princess Charlotte, was born in May 2015. Of course, their third bundle of joy will be fifth in line to the throne, bumping Prince Harry, the youngest son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, to sixth in line.

During a trip to Poland this summer, Middleton joked about having another baby when she received a gift designed for a newborn. While laughing, she turned to Prince William and said, “We will just have to have more babies.” Gossip Cop congratulates the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their third royal pregnancy!
