Kensington Palace announced Monday that Princess Kate is expecting her third child with Prince William. The baby will join siblings Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2.

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child. The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news,” Kensington Palace said in a statement.

Kate has suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum, or acute morning sickness, with each of her pregnancies and the palace announced that she again is suffering from the disease.

Kate was forced to cancel a planned engagement Monday morning as a result of her sickness.

Unlike during her first pregnancy, where she was required to be treated at a hospital, Kate is being cared for at Kensington Palace.

Kensington Palace has not announced how far along Kate is in her pregnancy, but it is believed that she may be between eight and 12 weeks pregnant.

In 2012, the news that Kate was pregnant with her first child, Prince George, came when Kate was unexpectedly admitted to the hospital to deal with hyperemesis gravidarum. Kate also was forced to announce her pregnancy with Princess Charlotte when she had to cancel a scheduled engagement.

It is a busy week for William and Kate, both 35, as George is scheduled to start his first week of primary school at Thomas’s Battersea School.

George previously went part-time to a Montessori preschool near the family’s Anmer Hall home but with William and Kate returning to London for full-time royal duties, George will be attending the coeducational school in London.

The expected new member of William and Kate’s family would mean that William’s brother, Prince Harry, now fifth in line for the throne, will move to sixth in line.
