Here’s the news you’ve been waiting for, royal watchers:
“The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby, St James’s Palace has announced.” (BBC News)
That would be Catherine, wife of Prince William (the Duke of Cambridge). They, of course, are the potential future king and queen.
The BBC adds that:
“A spokesman said the duchess has been admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in central London with very acute morning sickness and is expected to stay for several days.”
There’s no word just yet on when the baby is due. We expect London bookmakers will soon be taking bets on whether it’s a boy or a girl, the name and the date of birth.
