Catherine will do her duties. On the advice of her doctors and her husband.
Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. I am in awe of Catherine's willingness to endure HG for another child but surprisingly not surprised at all by this third pregnancy. It seems well-known that Catherine and probably William wanted more children. I am even going to say I will not be surprised if this is not her last.

I am, however, expecting an announcement of severely curtailed engagements throughout Catherine's pregnancy as she has already had one trip that we know of to the hospital (probably for rehydration) and there are photos of a medical emergency vehicle at KP recently.

Scheduling engagements for her from here on out is counter-productive as unlike morning sickness, Hyperemesis Gravidarum is a rather a severe complication that can last anywhere from 20 weeks to the entire pregnancy and in previous pregnancies resulted in hospitalisation on more than one occasion. She is also the mother of two small children and I believe that may be a heavy enough load to carry.

I wish that the UK had the same standard as Sweden as I remember when Princess Victoria first fell pregnant there was discussion as to whether she would follow their national parental leave allowance of 480 days paid leave, with each parent having an exclusive right to 90 of those days. The government "encouraged" she and Daniel to observe the standard.

Would that the same standard applied to the BRF as I can only imagine that being that ill for a sustained time would put huge stress on Catherine's general and mental health and expecting her to do a celebrity turn at three months, looking svelte and chic is pushing it. Celebrities only have to make selected appearances whereas once Catherine has performed her first engagement post pregnancy, many people will expect her to take on a full load.

The government just announced the entire monarchy is cancelled. Kate having a third child has created chaos throughout the world.

No one will survive if Kate misses some engagements.

I think William will still go on tour but Kate's participation will drpend on the HG and how severe and how long it lasts.

Harry has his own tour in October. The Cambridge tour is in November. Harry isn't going with them. Kate was able to go to NYC in Dec 2014 while she was pregnant with Charlotte. She just couldn't go to Japan and China in March 2015 because it was too close to her April due month.

Me too--I think they both enjoy their children a lot. She's only 35, so a 4th child is very doable.

There's no reason to assume it will be cancelled. Harry isn't going on tour at the same time as William and Catherine. There's an announcement of some kind tomorrow.

It's something that make you want to scream! All they think about is duty. The woman is going to do her duties, but she have to look after herself and baby too.

The insensitivity is beyond silly.

Yes and she's very fit which makes a big difference as well.

Talk about stress!

Moved house; George finding out there is this "school" thing about to happen; Charlotte looking for the chickens and hamster; Lupo always wanting "out" and Mum throwing up!

Poor William!

Same here. Kate may have unpleasant pregnancies but her deliveries seem to have been fairly routine and, from what we've heard at least, George and Charlotte don't seem to have been off the charts difficult babies or toddlers. They have the money to get whatever kind of help they want and, last but not least, they have the very close knit Middletons nearby to provide day to day help and support.

When they had a boy then a girl I thought there was a chance they might stop at two. Now that they're going for three I wouldn't be surprised if there's another baby in a few years time.

I am so pleased for William that he gets a big, noisy happy family that's stable and by all accounts, very good at maintaining privacy. I imagine that fulfills a lot of hopes he had for his life and it's particularly nice that this happy news comes during the anniversary of the hardest time in his life.

I believe there are some twins on Mike's side of the family tree. I think his mom was a twin.

Very nice comment, HRHHermione. I also agree. Beautiful news, for a beautiful family, during a difficult anniversary. What a blessing!

Back in 2012(?) during a tour and when asked William said he was thinking of two, so a nice surprise. Not least the difficult time Kate has had to deal with during the first trimester. If a boy, history will be made with Charlotte holding her current position in line to the throne.

Poor William!
On top of playing revolving door, there is the disgruntled Lupo with those sad puppy dog eyes peering at the members of the Cambridges asking when it is going to be *his* turn to have a sibling or two to play with and boss around.

Poor Lupo. One dog among so many humans. Nice, fun humans to be sure that always sneak him food under the table but....

Did they announce the month she was due to give birth to George and Charlotte? I can't recall.
