The baby is expected in July, and there was good news too in that Kate’s acute morning sickness is now improving. The Palace announcement also debunked rumors that Kate is expecting twins – a factor which aggravates morning sickness.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have announced their baby is due in July, with the good news that Kate Middleton’s acute morning sickness, which saw her hospitalized last month, is improving.
A St James’ Palace spokesman confirmed on Monday morning the good news that Kate and William will be welcoming their son or daughter in the summer, with the Duchess believed to be around 14 weeks pregnant.
“Their royal highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in July,” the spokesman said. “The duchess’s condition continues to improve since her stay in hospital last month.”
The statement also appears to rule out any chance the Duchess is carry twins as was speculated, as the statement refers to only one baby. It had been speculated that the couple were expecting twins, as the condition hyperemesis gravidarum, which causes severe vomiting and an inability to eat or drink, is more common when expecting twins.
