Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant.
Catherine Middleton, 30, and her husband Prince William, also 30, have been at the centre of a pregnancy riddle for several weeks.
The couple have now confirmed they are expecting a baby, choosing to make the announcement on their office website.
“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby,” the statement on dukeandduchessofcambridge.org read.
The message added that William’s father Prince Charles and his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II are thrilled with the news.
“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,” it continued.
Although it is not known how far along in the pregnancy Catherine is, it has been confirmed that she has been suffering from “very acute morning sickness”. The condition is known as Hyperemesis Gravidarum and due to it Catherine is seeking medical attention.
“The Duchess was admitted this afternoon to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London with Hyperemesis Gravidarum. 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 read.
Catherine sparked speculation she was with child after she was spotted with a small baby bump while at an event in London last week.
