After weeks of rumors and speculation, Kensington Palace has confirmed that baby number three is on the way for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The news comes after the Duchess took a personal day due to severe morning sickness, a condition she suffered from throughout her first two pregnancies.

Adding to the royal brood, the new baby will be fifth in line to the British throne, coming in after Prince Charles, Prince William, and siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The pregnancy rumors were fueled in late August as Duchess Kate was overheard telling her husband that they "just have to have more babies" after receiving toys in Poland.


Read on for Kensington Palace’s full statement:


"Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child.

The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.

As with her previous two pregnancies, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Her Royal Highness will no longer carry out her planned engagement at the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in London today. The Duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace."
