The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were forced to reveal the pregnancy today, after Kate Middleton came down with a bad case of morning sickness that prevented her from holding down any food all weekend.
As a precautionary measure, Kate Middelton was taken to a a London hospital after consulting Kate’s doctor, who advised the couple to check her into the hospital for a few days to receive intravenous drip to prevent dehydration and get nutrients back she had lost from her severe morning sickness-
‘The pregnancy is in its very early stages – the couple only found out very recently that they were expecting. But because she has been admitted to hospital and will have to stay in for a few days, they made the difficult decision to make things public,’
The pregnancy is so new in fact, that the Queen herself was informed about the pregnancy along with the public since the Duke and Duchess hadn’t announced it to anyone because it’s so early on and is not customary to announce a pregnancy before hitting the safe zone where the pregnancy will most likely stick.
Everyone in the Royal family is thrilled with the news, including the Queen, who will get to meet her great grandchild who is in direct secession to the crown. Something that hasn’t happened for the last 120 years. The child will be third in line to the throne.
Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess!
