Duke and Duchess of Cambridge expecting baby

THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge yesterday confirmed they are expecting their first child. The royal couple, who wed last April, said they were “delighted” by the news. The 30-year-old duchess is not yet 12 weeks pregnant, but St James’s Palace was forced to make an early announcement as she has been hospitalised in London with an acute morning sickness called hyperemesis gravidarum. A statement said she is “expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter”.
