"Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child," the statement said. "The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news." The baby will become fourth in line to the throne, and push Prince Harry to fifth. The Duchess’ sickness — called hyperemesis gravidarum — may require additional hydration, medication and nutrients, and will prevent her attending a planned visit to Oxford on Monday. She required hospitalization during her first pregnancy. Bookmakers were already taking bets on the name and birth date within hours of the announcement. London-based William Hill offered “Alexander” as most likely at 9 to 1, with the Duchess giving birth to twins offered at 20 to 1.

Is it true that the media has already set up outside the Lindo Wing?

Great news

Alright friends and neighbors, I feel a strong need to jump in and respond to the carping on the first 3 pages of this thread.

Going from my family experience, it is possible to know almost immediately that one is pregnant because this severe morning sickness strikes almost at once and literally lays one out. Both my mother and my sister experienced this with each of their pregnancies. (I have no children). So the Duchess could be only a few days or a few weeks pregnant. Wasn't she barely a month along when they had to announce the first one?

It is also possible that this timing, though welcome, is as much a surprise to our young couple as to anyone else...surprises happen.

It is also true that the Duchess is no longer a spring chicken and really should get her child bearing out of the way asap. The older she gets, the less fertile and the greater the risk of birth defect. Yes, I know she is not 35 yet, but she is close. And yes many celebrities have born children well into their 40s, but most of them do it with donated eggs and surrogates, which are not possible for the Cambridges. So they really need to create their family without further delay.

Also, any illness or accident could cause an event to be cancelled or delayed. It happens. I am sure everyone will get over their disappointment.

I wish them well!!!!

It also probably helps that they went through the severe morning sickness with George. The second time they are more aware what worked and did not to help Kate feel better.

Congratulations to the Cambridges! I hope Catherine feels better soon. I had "normal" morning sickness with my three kids but this is so much worse. One of our national morning programs had an ob-gyn on the show who gave this analogy: morning sickness is to hyperenemesis gravidarum as a spring shower is to a category five hurricane.

Poor William must have been in a real state worrying about his wife the first time around when she was hospitalised, now this time he can be a little more relaxed knowing a lot more about it. He would be thrilled about a second bub on the way. As must the rest of the family. [BRF] I sincerely hope she doesn't have to suffer for too long.
And congratulations Lady Nimue.

Good to hear something nice for a change. Now let's all get on with our lives and leave the Cambridge's to get along with theirs without too much press and public intrusion.

Congratulations!
I had a similar experience with the Danish twins. They were born on my duedate and my daughter was born 9 days later.

it's TOO soon for this, in my opinion. I wish Catherine the best but in the first few weeks of pregnancy there is always a risk of its termination.
