Catherine and William expecting Baby Number 2

Special moment: The Duke and Duchess with their son George arrive at Chapel Royal in St James's Palace, ahead of the christening of the three month-old by the Archbishop of Canterbury on October 23, 2013 Statement: Clarence House said in a tweet that the Queen and members of both families were 'delighted'

The Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant again, Kensington Palace announced this morning. Kate, 32, whose son, Prince George is just a year old, is expecting her second baby with husband Prince William next year.
"The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news," the palace said. It didn't say when the due date will be. Catherine and William's first child, Prince George, was born in July 2013.

The couple's second child will become fourth in line to the British throne. Prince Charles is first in line, followed by Prince William, Prince George, and then eventually the new baby. The new child will knock future uncle Prince Harry down to fifth.

As during her first pregnancy, Catherine is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, the palace said. The condition involves involves nausea and vomiting more severe than the typical morning sickness many women suffer during early pregnancy.

She is being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace and won't accompany William on a planned visit Monday to Oxford.
