by Jewel Stephen

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is expecting her second child with Prince William, heir to the royal throne, barely a year after giving birth to her first child, on 22 July 2013.

The royal household announced this on Monday, 8 September; “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child. The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news. The baby will become fourth in line to the throne, and push Prince Harry to fifth.”

The statement also added that like her first pregnancy with Prince George of Cambridge, Kate is reportedly suffering from acute morning sickness and being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace.

The acute morning sickness- Hyperemesis gravidarum affects 3.5 per 1,000 pregnant women and can cause women to vomit blood. It can be treated with anti-sickness tablets and by giving fluids intravenously.

Meanwhile, the Prime Minister of United Kingdom, David Cameron, and Labour leader, Ed Miliband, have tweeted congratulatory messages to the royal couple.
