Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge are expecting a third child as announced last Monday by Kensington Palace. According to Reuters, it was also reported that the Duchess was ‘forced to cancel an engagement due to severe morning sickness.’
It also looks like Prince Harry will be pushed another step back in line to the throne as the new baby will now become fifth after her two siblings, father, and grandfather.
The palace also said that currently Kate is still suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum. This is a severe kind of morning sickness characterized by nausea and vomitting and affects only a small fraction of pregnant women. This is usually treated by giving the body additional fluids and nutrients through an IV line. Hyperemesis gravidarum was also the reason Kate was brought to the hospital when she was pregnant with Prince George.
