Kate and William Expecting Royal Baby #2

Kate and William Expecting Royal Baby #2

Very exciting news out of Clarence House today – Kate and William are expecting baby #2!!


Around 10:30 AM BT, Clarence House released the following statement via twitter:

CH pregnancy tweet
They also released a formal press release, which can be read here.


Sources are reporting that Kate, similar to her last pregnancy, is feeling unwell, again experiencing hyperemesis gravidarum. Because of this, William and Catherine made the difficult decision to announce the pregnancy very early on. She is less than 12 weeks pregnant, making sources predict an April 2015 baby. Kate is being treated at Kensington Palace under the care of royal doctors.


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have only recently been made aware of this pregnancy, most likely within the last week or so. Prince George (AKA Cheeks) celebrated his first birthday on July 22, and many have been hoping to hear the pitter patter of royal feet.


The Duchess’ appointments for today have been cancelled, but remaining events are still scheduled to progress for now. Her upcoming tour of Malta will be assessed closer to the date. We are hoping Kate feels up to continuing her events – both for us, who would like to see her, but most importantly for her as it will mean she is feeling better.

Are you excited? Ready for another Great Kate wait?

Kate minus the HRH – What might have been

Kate minus the HRH – What might have been

As I get older, I find my mind drifting often to the “what if I had…” daydream every now and again. What if I had married someone different, what if I had picked up and moved across the world, what if I had married my high school sweetheart… All valid questions one asks, but IContinue Reading

Wardrobe Wednesday : Kate’s Mint Velvet Plimsolls

As some of you may know, I broke my ankle last year.

Priorities, ladies, priorities. While I’m thrilled to report that I’m walking andContinue Reading
