Prince William and Kate Middleton proudly announced that they are expecting their first child in a statement issued by the palace on Monday morning.
"Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby."
Despite confirming the news, there was no talk of a due date or sex of the child. The palace did reveal that Kate was in the very early stages of pregnancy, and was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London for acute morning sickness.
Due to Kate's admission to the hospital the couple felt it necessary to announce the news, not to startle people.
