Updated 11pm

KATE MIDDLETON AND Prince William are expecting their second child.

Clarence House announced the news this morning, saying that the Queen and members of both families are “delighted” with the news.

In a statement, Clarence House said that the Duchess of Cambridge is being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace for hyperemesis gravidarum, which she also suffered from during her first pregnancy.

The condition is a complication of pregnancy which usually comes with nausea, vomiting and dehydration.

Kate Middleton has cancelled her planned public engagement today as a result of the illness.

It is not yet known when the new baby is expected to be born. The couple’s first child, Prince George, celebrated his first birthday on 22 July.
