Prince William And Duchess Kate Middleton Are Expecting Their Third Child
Kensington Palace Facebook and Twitter made the announcement there will be another royal on the way. Both Prince William and Kate have expressed wanting a big family and it looks like they are going to keep good to their word. I would not be surprised to see a fourth child in a few years. The soon-to-be baby will be Queen Elizabeth II’s sixth great-grandchild. The baby will also be fifth in line to the heir to the throne. In front of him/her are Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Kensington Palace posted the announcement on Twitter:
#The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child. “The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news,” the Palace said.
Kate is once again suffering from extreme morning sickness, Hyperemesis Gravidarum, which troubled her first two pregnancies as well. She had been planning to carry out an engagement today at the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in London, but cancelled it due to her illness. The Duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace. The last time Kate was seen publicly was during a visit to the White Garden with William and Harry to commemorate Princess Diana’s 20th anniversary of her death. She may have already been suffering from her illness but clearly made the effort to be there with her husband and brother-in-law to remember their late mother.
Kate and William’s two children, George and Charlotte, are 4 and 2. Prince George is getting ready to start his first day of school. If Kate is feeling up to it, she and William had planned to take George to his first day. It was not immediately clear when the baby is due though the duchess is less than 12 weeks pregnant putting the due date sometime between March and June. Betting agencies were already beginning to offer odds on possible names for the soon-to-be-born child in the House of Windsor. “It is quite a significant week for them because Prince George is due to start at big school,” Nicholas Witchell, a royal correspondent to the BBC, said. “Presumably his mother would be keen to take him to that, but whether she is going to be well enough to do that remains to be seen.” He added: “It had also been expected that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge would be taking a foreign trip this autumn. Whether they will be able to do that or whether the duchess will be well enough to do that also remains to be seen.”
Susan Z’s Conclusion:
I am sure both William and Kate are thrilled about adding another royal to their family. It is unfortunate that Kate suffers so severely with morning sickness in the first stages, let us hope she will be on her feet quickly. I am not that great foretelling the sex of unborn babies but my gut instinct tells me it might be another boy. I guess we will have to just wait and see.
Four of Wands: Inverted (Upside Down)
Change of residence planned and great optimism. Inverted, I feel this might possibly represent Kate having to be taken care of at a place other than her own residence due to her severe morning sickness. Let us hope it does not mean another trip to the hospital as when she was carrying Prince George.
Transformation and letting the old die away. Pulled inverted, I believe this is Kate’s aversion to being fussed over as a pregnant royal and would prefer to have as little bothering as possible. It also represents how they are bringing up their other two children and breaking old royal traditions.
Pretty much self-explanatory. Kate is one tough cookie and in excellent health. She will have the strength to deal with whatever this pregnancy throws at her.
