THE DUE DATE for the second child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has been announced as April 2015.

The news, confirmed by Kensington Palace, also states that the duchess was still suffering from hyperemisis gravidarum – but that her condition is “steadily improving”.

Hyperemesis gravidarum is a serious pregnancy complication that can see sufferers experience severe weight loss as well as frequent vomiting throughout the day.

Tomorrow the duchess is set to make her first public appearance since the announcement of her pregnancy last month. She will be greeting President of Singapore Tony Tan and his wife as they embark on a short visit to the United Kingdom.

She will also be attending the Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards ceremony at the Natural History Museum.

The couple’s first child Prince George was born in July last year.
