Thoroughly modern Middleton (and Prince William) this morning announced the impending arrival of their second child, via Twitter:
Later, the Queen’s approval (good grief, can you imagine having your every move publicly announced and/or approved?) was given in a statement released by Kensington Palace:
“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child.
The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.
As with her first pregnancy, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Her Royal Highness will no longer accompany The Duke of Cambridge on their planned engagement in Oxford today. The Duchess of Cambridge is being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace.”
Forget the Queen; WE approve. But can we handle the cute? Prince George’s chubby cheeks and thighs have nearly killed us already…look at this kid!
World domination, achieved.
The new baby will be fourth in line to the throne, and second in line to those cheeks.
