Yes you read that right, Kate Middleton is finally pregnant with Prince William’s offspring! The royal couple announced the pregnancy today in a statement from the palace:
“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby. 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 couple were married just last year, and faced immediate scrutiny as to when they would produce an heir. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have enjoyed a blissful year and a half of marriage jet setting around the world, and now they are ready to settle down.
After the announcement Twitter blew up with well wishes from celebrities, average folk, and even our President!
Kate and Wills soon to be born child will be the third in line for the thrown, after William’s father, Charles, and William himself.
We’re so excited for them and we can’t wait to meet the royal bundle of joy!
