Duchess of Cambridge expecting third child

George has been invited to join his class-mates at a pre-term party to encourage the youngster to settle-in and make friends

"The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news".

The Duchess experienced hyperemesis gravidarum during her previous pregnancies - an extreme form of morning sickness that can lead to constant vomiting, weight loss, dehydration and depression.

It's already a big week for the family as they prepare for George to start school at Thomas's Battersea in south London on Thursday.

The statement said: "Their royal highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child". She is being cared for at their London home.

"Given the recent anniversary, there'll be plenty of interest in the name Diana if the baby is a girl", the agency said.

On a royal tour of Poland in July 2017, Kate joked about having a third - after being given a present designed for newborns.

After being gifted a toy suitable for a newborn baby during an event in the country, she turned to Will and joked: "We will just have to have more babies!". However, Prince Harry will be pushed further down the line of succession by his newest nephew or niece.

Prince William is second in line to the throne, after his father Prince Charles.
