The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have today announced that they are expecting their first baby.

Hold the front pages because the story of the year is here, Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting the pitter patter of royal feet! A statement from St James’ Palace read:

‘The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby, St James’s Palace announced today’

Reports have said that the Duchess has been taken to King Edward VII hospital in London suffering from acute morning sickness and she’s expecting to stay for several days.

A statement on the couples website said that “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”, and so it seems is the rest of the country with celebrities including Cheryl Cole and fellow mum-to-be Rochelle Humes tweeting their excitement.

Even the Prime Minister is happy with the news, tweeting: “I’m delighted by the news that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting a baby.’
The new arrival will be third in line to the throne, meaning that poor old Prince Harry has been pushed further down the succession order – oh dear!

And now the news has gone global, there will no doubt be an endless speculation of baby names. One thing’s for sure, K-Middy will be the new yummy mummy about town, so move over Fearne Cotton!

Congratulations to William and Kate from Gossipdrip!
