Wow! Congratulations! I'm excited now!

Just saw the news on Sky News - I'm shocked, I totally didn't expect it!

I'm so so so pleased for Edward and Sophie - they deserve it!

I feel guilty questioning Sophie's lack of presence at events now - poor thing may have been having a rough time lately.

Awesome! I can't wait! I wasn't expecting news like this at all, I was afraid they would never have any more children, but this is really great!!

I hope everything goes well with the pregnancy and the Countess takes every precaution to ensure a healthy baby! The British Royal Family is having their own little baby boom after all, with little Lord Culloden first, and now Lord Nicholas and Prince Edward's babies.

Question, now, regarding titles. If this little one is a boy (which I hope is is, so the Dukedom of Edinburgh will continue on for at least another generation!) it can be assumed he'll be XX Windsor, Viscount Severn, right? So when/if Edward gets the Dukedom of Edinburgh, will his children just remain as they are (Louise and possible sister as Ladies/Louise as a Lady, possible brother as....Earl of something. Merioneth, maybe?) or gain a royal rank (HRH Princess Louise & HRH Prince/ss NN of Edinburgh/Wessex/whatever)

Well this good news certainly came out of nowhere LOL

I am surprised, I didn't think they'd try again after everything they've been through- an ectopic pregnancy, then Lady Louise's early & difficult birth.

I hope Sophie will have a good pregnancy & safe delivery of a healthy baby.

If I'm not mistaken, Lady Louise is already a HRH and a Princess of Wessex (just like her cousins are Princesses of York) , but his parents wished she was simply referred as "Lady Louise".

Same with me, I was a bit shocked, but in a very very positive way!

I'm so happy for the family, they've waited so long and they absolutely deserve it. My congratulations and
best wishes for a good pregnancy to the Wessex family!!!

Didn't the Queen agree with Edward and Sophie that their future children would not carry the HRH Prince(ss) titles? Wasn't there a letters patent (I think).

IIRC, there was no Letters Patent issued, the Queen simply agreed to it. That way if Louise or her sibling want to use the HRH, they can.

Ahhhh, what great news, I have to say I did not expect that they would get another child, so the surprise is so big, I wish them all the best!
A brother or sister for Louise, how happy she will be...

This is blessed news!

I hope Prince Edward does not have any travel plans in November or December. That would be a shame if he missed another birth because he was out of the country.
