The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their third child together who will be fifth in line to the British throne.

The announcement was made by the Kensington Palace, saying the Queen and rest of the Royal Family are ‘delighted.’

The Duchess is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, which is a severe form of morning sickness, as she did with previous pregnancies.

The extreme condition forced Kate to cancel her planned engagement at a London children’s hospital on Monday and she is being cared for at Kensington Palace, the statement said.

The couple are already parents to Prince George, 4 and Princess Charlotte, 2. The new baby will be fifth in line to the throne – bumping Prince Harry, down to sixth place in the line of succession.

Until recently, if the Cambridge’s new baby was a boy it would have leapfrogged Charlotte in the line of succession. However, a change in law after William and Kate wed gave women the same rights of accession to the throne as men.

The Duchess is understood to be less than 12 weeks pregnant, with Kensington Palace announcing the news earlier than perhaps the couple desired due to morning sickness affecting her diary.
