I am thinking an April baby. Nice age difference between the two.

Yeahhhh!!! It was not entirely unexpected, IMO, but the news came surprisingly anyway.

As long as the baby is healthy and everything is ok, boy or girl will be fine...

(but yeah, count me among those who hope for a little princess )

I have to admit: I am shocked by the news... She didn't have the "pregnant" face as with George... Hyperemesis again...

Congraatulations to the couple... it will be another boy

Aides say decisions about the Duchess attending engagements, including her first solo visit to Malta, will be made on a case by case basis.

That was quite a surprise considering I thought she was going to Malta this week! Guess that isn't happening now.

Congratulations to all members of the family!

I agree.I don't know what they were thinking. This trip has been months in the planning and even if she didn't think she would get HG again it was always a possibility. If I had been in her shoes knowing that I was due to visit another country who had put in a great deal of effort to host me there is no way I would have let this happen knowing that I could be too ill to go. These two though often seem to put their own desires before duty so it's nothing new. I just hope she still makes it and doesn't throw up the whole time she is there.

As was the case in Ireland, it won't take long for an independent Scotland to dump the Royal Family. Salmond's promise to keep the monarchy following a 'Yes' vote is just another trick to mislead the voters, like his claims that Scotland will be able to keep the pound or stay in the EU and NATO. Genuine monarchists should rally around the Union if they want the monarchy to survive in Scotland in the long run.

Going by that logic they can never have another baby since there is always another event, appointment, visit, etc. People can't really determine when they'll get pregnant. It could take a month, it could take a year.

I'm happy for them. I had a feeling she was pregnant at the visit on 5/8.

The Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant with a second child

She would have known she was pregnant prior to the announcement about Oxford which was last week I believe. HG was obviously to be expected so she never should have been included in going IMO.

Congratulations to all members of the family!

Malta is going to be a case by case based apparently but since she's at KP not in hospital it's a good chance we'll see her.

I do wonder the last time we saw her, commonwealth games I imagine?


Apparently she's not hit the 3 month mark which makes me think she's just at 2 months and they're trying to shroud the timeline a little.

@MaxFosterCNN: Royal source: "The couple only found out very recently. The Duchess has not even reached the crucial 12-week stage." #RoyalBaby

Since the trip had already been announced I guess she has just found out about the pregnancy...

That will only be true if they are raised to conform to gender stereotypes.

Anyway, great timing!

I think it's wonderful and I hope it's a healthy little girl I think William really wants a little Princess. I'm not how expected this was the timing with her first solo overseas engagement isn't the best. Hope she is ok.
