MOSCOW, October 20 (RIA Novosti) - The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have announced that they’re expecting their second child in April, AP reports.
The pregnancy was already announced earlier this year, but it is the first time that the couple has provided information about the month that the royal birth is expected to occur, the agency adds.
The statement issued by Kensington Palace says that while the Duchess continues to suffer from severe morning sickness, “her condition is steadily improving,” USA Today notes.
Prince George, the first child of the former Kate Middleton and Prince William, was born on July 22, 2013, and the Duchess also experienced morning sickness when she was pregnant with him, according to USA Today.
Despite her condition, the Duchess is expected to participate in several official engagements this week, AP adds. She is expected to welcome Singapore’s President Tony Tan when he arrives on a four-day state visit, and to attend the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014 award ceremony.
