Posted on 12/03/2012 8:53:52 AM PST by rawhide
Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton are expecting their first child, the palace announced today.
"Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby," the palace said in a statement today. "The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news."
The duchess was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital today in central London with hyperemesis gravidarum, an acute morning sickness which requires supplementary hydration and nutrients, the palace said.
"As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter," the statement said.
The baby will be the queen's third great-grandchild.

OR Queen in this instance...
My bet..girl, and then boy.
That should put the cat among the pigeons.
Their child will automatically be in line for the throne since Parliament passed an amendment to the successor act against males have first dibs.
Hopefully we can get rid of that pesky bald gene
I don’t think that change is official yet.
Good thing they changed the law. The public would be very upset if Will dumped her for not producing a male heir, or worse, had her beheaded.
These people are such useless trash.
Where is the Guillotine when you REALLY need one?
Right now I’d much rather have their trash than ours!!!...and, theirs is much less expensive than ours...
Here’s to Kate’s genes dominating Grampy Chuck’s.
I can see the name now..
George Carl Peter Arthur Edward Henry Albert William Phillip Greg Bobby Michael Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.
But they made it two whole generations without inbreeding again! That has to count for something?
LOL. Yes, you’ve got that about right - every name but Adolf. ;-)
I wish Liz would pass the throne to charles so he can pass it on to William & Kate. truly...charles was divorced and shouldn’t have the throne.
You forgot “Mohammed”. Isn’t “Grandpa Prince Charles” Muslim leaning? Better stick that name in there as well.
It's good to be King....
It's not bad being Prince either.....
Didn’t we fight a war to not hear about this crap?
Obviously I was in the wrong place at the right time.
No, he isnt.
Yes, you did, but that dosent mean you cant take an interest in the UK. You dont hate us and we are allies after all.
BTW, didnt you offer Washington the chance to be King post 1783 anyway?.
aka "puking up my toenails" for those who've experienced it or observed it as the SO.
LOL post of the day
You make a good point there, TexasGirl...
You mean George Carl Peter Arthur Edward Henry Albert William Phillip Greg Bobby Michael Saxe-Coburg-Gotha Bus Stop F'tang-F'tang Ole Biscuit Barrel.
Hey, what about Mountbatten ?!
Congratulations and Blessings!
That is so funny!! Thanks, rollo tomasi!
No. The word king was one hateful to the ears of Americans and even founders arguing for a strong executive, like Adams, were decried as monarchists.
Well, I think we fought a war to not have THEM telling US how we were to live our lives. Nothing about our being curious about what is going on with them. We fought a war so that we didn't have to pay our taxes for the Royal family without having any say as to how our taxmoney was being spent.
I now have a question for you. If you don't want to hear about this "crap", why did you click onto this article and read it?
Or His royal highness Christopher Rupert Vwindemier Vlandamier Carl Alexander Francois Reginald Lancelot Herman...
...Herman! Gregory James!
(From the “Cinderella” musical.)
hyperemesis gravidarum,...Hell, I have that every Saturday morning.
Congratulations, indeed! Isn’t this what dynasties are all about?
Wishing them well.
This is so rude~ How can you consider the birth of a child "this crap"? I for one apologize to you, scotsman... there are many, many Americans who rejoice over this news and are very fond of Kate, William, and the new baby~~
“Didnt we fight a war to not hear about this crap?”
Let’s see—Bill’s granddad Phil is a prince, not a king, with his Dad (Chuck) being a prince as well. Bill’s a princeling and his son will also be a princeling.
If Liz can live another 20+- years, why England could have a princeling to the fifth power, yet another fifth wheel—a 4th generation for the British people to support in a manner to which the royals have become accustomed.
But that’s their call, yup yup. bmw, freedom from this kind of nonsense was definitely worth fighting for, keeping in mind our own `king’ & his `queen’ and their retinue. And the Bushes.
Anything that may keep that demented whack-job Charlie from claiming the crown. The British Monarchy would surely never recover.
“Didnt we fight a war to not hear about this crap?”
Actually two wars and we still have to hear about it on a daily basis.
Translation looks to be something like “extremely grave over-puking”. (Sounds like a lot of fun.)
Making babies with Kate... what fun!
I feel great empathy for Great Britain. They will have yet another unemployed freeloader to support.
I think that name has proven to be a bit too... explosive.
I am not that offended, as I am not a Royalist, although I wish them well.
Actually I believe you did, but it was nixed pretty quickly.
Then blame the US media, not us. If its any consolation, you bore the world with reality stars and Hollywood.
So we’re equal.
