Kate Middleton is pregnant again, it has been announced.
According to an official statement from the Royal Palace, ‘Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child.’
It continued, ‘The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.’
‘As with her first pregnancy, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum… The Duchess is being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace,’ the statement added.
Of course, it was this same hyperemesis gravidarum – Latin for ‘grave vomiting’, a kind of severe morning sickness – that led a nurse to commit suicide after she was prank-celled by two Australian radio DJs.
Hope there will be no such thing this time.
