And lo, Royal Baby-gate begins anew!

Clarence House this morning confirmed this morning that Duchess Catherine AKA Kate Middleton is pregnant with her second child saying in typical royal fashion: "Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child.". As with the early days with Prince George, Kate is suffering from very acute morning sickness and is being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace.

As such all engagements for Kate in the near future have been called off until she's back on her feet. David Cameron was one of the first to send congratulations tweeting:

The Queen is said to be 'delighted' at the news that Prince George is going to have a new baby brother or sister. Probably because it will take some weight off his itty bitty shoulders should he ever want to pull an Edward and abdicate.
