This is trully wonderful news!

I'm very happy for the couple and for Lady Louise. And waiting forward to the new addition to the British Royal Family.

I'm not too surprised though, I suspected we might hear some exiting news after seeing this picture from getty - a gesture, that is often anticipated by Royal watchers.
Queen Elizabeth: "I cannot lead you into battle, I do not give you laws or administer justice but I can do something else, I can give you my heart and my devotion to these old islands and to all the peoples of our brotherhood of nations." God, Save The Queen!

I'm thrilled for them. Sadly not a new Prince or Princess but a new Lord or Lady is good enough.

This is late in the pregnancy to be announcing it - usually the announcement comes after just a couple of months. I suppose that given the Countess's age and history of difficult pregnancies, they wanted to get past the first three months before making an announcement.
At 42, she would certainly have an amniocentesis, which they do at 16 weeks and you get the results back at 18 weeks. If I calculate right she's about 19-20 weeks along. How great for her at her age! I wonder if they did the fertility treatments or if this was a happy surprise. Either way great for all concerned!

Wonderful, wonderful news. For my favourite and dedicated royal couple.
I had always thought it a pity that they will only have one child. But now! A most wonderful surprise. Congratulations to TRH the Earl and Countess of Wessex.
Oh please! they should do away with this Lord and Lady titles for their offsprings and instead use the Prince or Princess of Wessex titles.
