Kate Middleton can finally remove the well placed clutch from in front her belly bump and enjoy an extra go round of crumpets without feeling guilty! It’s official, she and Prince William are pregnant! “Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby,” said a statement released from the palace (how fancy).

Middleton, who wed Prince William in a royal ceremony on April 29, 2011, was recently admitted to the hospital following acute morning sickness. She is still in the early stages of her pregnancy and their families are said to be “delighted,” reports Eonline.

Kate has always held herself with a regal poise and we hope the media doesn’t make a mockery of her pregnancy.

Congrats to the lovely couple!
