This just in from from Kensington Palace this morning, Monday, October 20. We have a due date for royal baby No. 2!
“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in April 2015,” the Palace states.
They also shared the big news on Twitter…

Indeed, this statement not only reveals the highly anticipated date, but it also squashes rumours that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 32, are having twins.
The Palace statement goes on to reveal that, unfortunately, Kate is still suffering from hyperemisis gravidarum—happily, however, she’s starting to see the light.
“The Duchess of Cambridge continues to be affected by Hyperemisis Gravidarum,” reads the Palace statement, “but her condition is steadily improving.”
Hopefully, she’ll feel well enough for her first royal engagement since announcing the pregnancy last month. She and William will welcome the President of the Republic of Singapore and his wife on Tuesday, October 21.
Looks like April is going to be a big month for the royal family. William and Kate’s fourth anniversary is on April 29, and the Queen’s 89th birthday is April 21. Prince George will also be 21 months old then, so they’ll be very busy.
