The pregnancy was announced in September. Back then, the Duchess was forced to cancel engagements due to hyperemesis gravidarum. The baby will join big brother Prince George who was born in July 2013 and big sister Princess Charlotte who was born in May 2015. The gender of the baby is still kept under wraps.
Prince George, 4, has just started primary school. Prince William took Prince George to his first day at school in September. "Unfortunately The Duchess of Cambridge remains unwell, and will not be able to accompany Prince George on his first day of school," the Palace explained. Instead sending Prince George to an all-boys school, Prince Williams broke the tradition and sent the young Prince to a mixed gender school at Thomas's Battersea in London.
The royal couple was recently spotted attending children's charity event at Paddington station in London. They were joined by Prince Harry and the cast and crew of "Paddington 2". They sent young survivors of the GrenFell Tower fire for trip to English countryside on Belmond British Pullman train.
The pregnant Duchess looked healthy and happy. A royal aide said, "Her condition is improved, but the Duchess does continue to be affected by hyperemesis gravidarium. She is making decisions day to day but is keen to do as much as she can." The Duke confirmed it when asked by a female attendee, "Yes, she's in another carriage. She is feeling much better."
"The Duke of Cambridge will visit Finland on Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th November at the request of the FCO," the Palace announced the couple's next royal engagements. "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will undertake an official visit to Norway and Sweden at the request of the FCO in early 2018."
