Pregnant Kate Middleton is expected to welcome her second child with Prince William in April next year.

In a short statement released earlier today, Kensington Palace revealed that the Duchess of Cambridge is expected to give birth next spring, suggesting she has passed the 12 week mark of her pregnancy.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge attend the ceramic poppy field of remembrance at Tower of London on August 5, 2014 in London, England.


The statement read: "Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in April 2015.

"The Duchess of Cambridge continues to be affected by hyperemesis gravidarum, but her condition is steadily improving."

Soon-to-be second-time parents, William and Kate announced they are expecting their second child last month. The pair are already parents to their one-year-old son, Prince George.

Throughout her pregnancy, Kate has been suffering with severe morning sickness again and was unfortunately forced to pull out of a series of engagements while being treated at Kensington Palace.

The same illness saw Kate hospitalised for a few days when pregnant with George.

It was hoped Kate would be feeling better to resume public engagements as of this month and now, with her condition slightly improved, the Duchess is said to be joining William as he welcomes the President of Singapore TonyTan to the UK tomorrow (21 October).

Meanwhile, speculation has already begun on when exactly Kate and Wills' second baby will be born in April now the Duchess' due date has been revealed.

The month of April is already special to the Royal family, as it holds two important occasions - William and Kate's wedding anniversary on 29 April and the Queen's birthday on 21 April - and many are already starting to wonder whether Kate will end up giving birth on either of these dates.

Who knows?!

Either way, April is definitely set to be one busy month for our Royals!
