This morning the Palace confirmed that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their first child. The Duchess was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London this afternoon with Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Hyperemesis Gravidarum is very acute morning sickness, which requires supplementary hydration and nutrients.
Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in the hospital for several days, as the pregnancy is in its very early stages. The Duchess will then be required a period of rest upon her release.
The official announcement comes weeks after it was first reported that Jessica Hay, former roommate and close friend of the royal couple, stated to Aussie tabloid New Look that the Royals will have "wonderful, happy news" to share in December.
How excited are you for Will and Kate? Can you imagine the maternity style?
