Kate Middleton Pregnant! The Palace Confirms!

Kate Middleton is pregnant! The rumours are true! The palace confirmed Monday that Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting their first child.

“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 this morning. It seems like every time Kate is photographed drinking water instead of wine, tabloids insist she’s pregnant. We’re in shock that the news is finally true, and that the palace has finally confirmed that she’s expecting.

Kate is apparently already past her first trimester and is currently in the hospital, but not to worry. The Duchess of Cambridge was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London because she was suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum… but that’s just a fancy way of saying morning sickness. Kate is expected to be in the hospital for a few days but she’ll be home for the holidays, of course, and we expect this to be one of the happiest Christmases at the palace in years.

“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 palace said.’

We can’t believe was Kate Middleton was pregnant when the photo, above, was taken just last week. We can hardly see any sign of a baby belly. It will definitely be a very special holiday season at Buckingham Palace this year. As we reported last week, Kate Middleton and Prince William recently moved into a bigger home, and rumours spread that it was because they were getting ready to start a family. We are thrilled that the news is true and that there will be a new prince or princess in the Royal family very soon. We can only imagine how many new maternity wear trends Kate is going to start!
