It’s baby number 3 for Princess Kate and Prince William!
Kensington Palace confirmed today that the royal family are expecting a third child.
“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child,” a statement from Kensington Palace, released Monday morning, said.
The former Kate Middleton is not yet three months along but is experiencing the same extreme morning sickness as she experienced when she was pregnant with Princess Charlotte and therefore would have to skip out on making appearances, hence the decision to come out with the news earlier than normal.
“As with her previous two pregnancies, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Her Royal Highness will no longer carry out her planned engagement at the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in London today,” the statement said. “The Duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace.”
The former Kate Middleton is known for being a style icon, a down-to-earth Royal and a positive and influential example of modern motherhood. For example, she bans her children from playing with tech devices and urges them to play with real life toys, not digital ones.
But, she is also criticized often in the British and Aussi press for a lot of random stuff we find ridiculous.
For example, one Royal watcher said Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge has taken the “magic” out of royalty . Um… exsqueeze me?! It was the claimant’s back handed compliment way of saying that she has managed to relay relatively normal life and as a result, she is more relateable, albeit seemingly because she is a commoner, approachable and has removed the mystique from what it meant to be a royal. Errr. Okay. Sure, dude.
Another post by an Australian website went after her for color-coordinating her family’s outfits when they go out, knowing they will be photographed.
I mean how dare she try to portray a pleasant aesthetic! The horror!
Personally, we like the coordinated outfits!
While visiting the Poland and Germany this Summer, Kate kept it neutral, arriving at the airport tarmac in a white Alexander McQueen Double-breasted wool and silk-blend peplum coat and her fave pair of nude Gianvito Rossi pumps, Princess Charlotte matched in a red and white floral dress with red Mary Janes and Prince George in a plaid shirt with complementary colors.
Landing in Berlin with her family in a blue Catherine Walker coat dress, again with her nude Gianvito Rossi pumps and accented with Kiki McDonough jewels.
Love this crimson off-the-shoulder Alexander McQueen dress.
The sister to our most popular bumpwatched alum Catherine Duchess of Cambridge (nee Kate Middleton) got married on Saturday, May 20 at St. Mark’s church in England:
Pippa Middleton married her fiancé of two years, hedge fund manager James Matthews, at a lavish ceremony where her niece and nephew Prince George and Princess Charlotte were in the wedding party, along with sister Kate and princes Harry and William.
The bride wore a jaw-dropping white lace gown courtesy of British designer Giles Deacon.
She also married into royalty as Matthews is the heir to a Scottish title. His father, David Matthews, is otherwise known as the Laird of Glen Affric, meaning that eventually, Pippa will be known as Lady of Glen Affric.
The ceremony was also notable for rumors that Pippa only permitted significant others who were fiance or married to a family member to attend- a so-called “no ring, no bring” policy.
William’s bro is famously seriously dating American actress Meghan Marke. While the Suits star didn’t make the ceremony, the Daily Mail reports that she did attend other wedding weekend events including a Bucklebury, Bershire event and air exhibition at the Middleton’s estate.
Markel attended while Pippa’s brother-in-law Spencer Matthews‘ girlfriend Vogue Williams did not. So…hmmmm
Also, we don’t think it is there, but a few folks thought they saw a slight bump on her recently, sparking Bumpwatch and marriage speculation widely.
Time will tell.
A lot of the celeb moms we’ve featured in the past shared what they did on Easter with their fans and followers on social media. Here is a roundup of some of the fun festivities!
After attending church in Bel-Air, the Kardashian-Jenner clan had an Easter Egg Hunt and Roll with animals. Chrissy Teigen and her daughter Luna were there.
Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (nee Kate Middleton) attended the Easter Day service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, England.
Kim Kardashian-West shared a family photo of herself, husband Kanye West and their two children North and Saint on her Instagram account. Check out North with the choker and she looks just like her dad.
Singer Monica also hosted an elaborate Easter Egg Hunt and party at her home. Her daughter Laiyah, outfitted in the cutest hot pink jumpsuit seems pleased. Monica also sparked a bunch of comments speculating that she is expecting in this photo. She too is wearing a paisley off the shoulder jumpsuit that is gapping at the center, creating the illusion of a bump. Whether one is there or not, who knows.
Ashlee Simpson Ross and her daughter Jagger Snow looked cute for Easter outfitted in matching Coachella wear Bohemian Mini-dresses.
Kandi Burruss and son Ace Tucker Wells attended Monica’s Easter Egg Roll and Hunt party too.
Lady Antebellum lead singer Hillary Scott shared a really creative looking aerial shot of herself with her daughter doing Easter activities.
Tamera Mowry-Housley and hubby Adam posed with their kids daughter Ariah and son Aden in their Easter best.
Sadly, over at her sister Tia Mowy Hardrict‘s home, all was quiet because her son Cree was battling strep, her her Instagram post.
Check out Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady‘s daughter Vivian in her bunny ears egg hunting on the beach.
Victoria Beckham gets in the spirit, donning a bunny mask that looks like the signature bunny on her clothing. She looks great and this is the curviest I’ve ever seen her and they look good on her.
CaCee Cobb and Donald Faison‘s kids, Wilder and Rocco, posed with the Easter Bunny.
Soleil Moonfrye is certainly blessed as she said, captioning this photo of the Easter bounty she amassed for her children.
We usually don’t like to step on pregnancy announcements before formally made (yeah right!? ?), but gossip sites are claiming that Kate Middleton (Duchess Catherine of Cambridge) is expecting her third child.
Star magazine reports that during afternoon tea, George went up to his great grandmother, the Queen and told her he had a secret. The room went silent and then he spilled the beans.
From Hollywood Life which reminds us that Kate has said she wants 5 kids by age 40:
“It ended up being incredibly sweet. George approached his great-grandmother and exclaimed that he had a secret to share. The room went quiet when he said that ‘mummy has a new bubby in her tummy!’” The queen allegedly called for a champagne toast immediately. “She was delightedly hugging Kate, who was beaming from ear to ear,” the source added.
And apparently, the queen’s cheery spirits totally got William off the hook about his rowdy ski trip last week. “William knew that as soon as he returned to England he’d be in for a serious scolding,” Star’s insider said. “He was on his way back and getting ready to face the music, but it’s no surprise that all was forgiven and forgotten following George’s absolutely adorable announcement.”
For those who need a refresher, the king-in-waiting shook his princely responsibilities on March 13 to go skiing in Verbier. The prince was with his friends and dancing with a blonde instead of attending Commonwealth Day services with his family. But while some reports have said Kate was “humiliated” by her husband’s behavior, Star claims it was HER idea for William to have a boys’ trip.
“It was actually Kate who insisted he go on one last boys’ vacation before focusing on the new baby,” a source for the magazine said. “It’s just a shame it looked like he was having too much fun and absconding from his duties. Who could have known he may have simply been celebrating his wife’s third pregnancy?”
The couple reportedly do not know the sex of their alleged unborn child yet, but they apparently couldn’t care less either way — they just want it to be healthy. “Kate is in fine form right now,” the insider added. “She’s full of energy and hasn’t stopped…William is ecstatic.”
What happened after local news broadcasters discussed a UK plastic surgeon’s determination that Kate Middleton had the perfect face is priceless.
FOX 5 DC’s Maureen Umeh and Wisdom Martin made THE best shady of faces and side eyes during a segment discussing British surgeon Dr. Julian De Silva‘s estimation of the most popular body features that his clients request.
De Silva ranked the top requests and during the discussion of the part of the article (featured this week on DailyMail.com) about the perfect nose, Middleton’s, Umeh and Martin just couldn’t keep their thoughts to themselves.
But they did but not share their feelings in words…. but instead the most hilarious gestures! Check it out.
- Nose: Kate Middleton
- Eyes: Keira Knightly
- Eyebrows: Jennifer Lopez
- Lips: Penelope Cruz
- Cheeks: Angelina Jolie
- Skin: Reese Witherspoon
- Forehead: Miley Cyrus
- Chin: Selina Gomez
We can only guess that the reaction is over the absence of features common among people of African descent of which Umeh and Wisdom clearly are also. I believe Umeh has direct African heritage. The two of them are part of my family’s favorite local morning show here in DC.
Princess Charlotte trended this week when she appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with her parents Duchess Catherine (nee Kate Middleton), dad Prince William and her brother Prince George to watch grandmom Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday parade.
The 13-month old was adorable in a pink dress matching her mom’s Philip Treacy hat at the jubilee event. Her bro, my boy Georgie stood out himself wearing the precise same outfit dad William wore to his uncle Prince Harry’s christening back in 1984. George turns 2 next month.
The youngest princess knows how to work a crowd. She actually waved to the crowd and looked quite comfortable in front of all those people.
Those royals know how to hold onto an old ceremonial outfit. Both George and Charlotte wore a replica of Williams’ Christening gown. (smile)
Some in social media are claiming that Kensington Palace‘s newly released photo of the Royal Family was photoshopped.
They point to Charlotte and claim that the areas around her shoulder are fuzzy but her face is clear. Others claim that because she is wearing the same dress as in the last photo the Palace released in November that she was perhaps inserted into the photo instead of being naturally in that one. The thinking is that the Royals didn’t want a fussy infant to mess up their otherwise “perfect” photo.
Ok beautiful but serious question did they photoshop Charlotte’s smiling face onto her body bc I’m thinking yes https://t.co/S0ZanmTYSv

Looks like Princess Charlotte was not playing ball with the Christmas card, definitely some photoshop going on pic.twitter.com/soFeZ3pP2a

First, it is possible the recently released photo was taken on the same day and during the same photo session as the one released earlier.
Second, Charlotte is wearing what looks like a fuzzy angora sweater perhaps, which would clearly explain why it looks blurry in the photo.
Finally, the photo is NOT perfect. Charlotte’s shoe is missing because it has fallen off and is on the grass. Prince William is not even looking at the camera but at his son, perhaps in a moment of telling to not run off, or something. William looks to have forgotten to put on his wedding ring. Kate’s hair is a bit windswept and out of place.
Kensington Palace basically laughed at the rumors and Buzzfeed‘s request for comment, though they had no official comment, just laughed their heads off.
Kensington Palace today released new photos of Princess Charlotte of Cambridge that her mom Kate Middleton (Duchess Catherine) took recently. In the photos, the adorable 6-months old is sitting in green and blue gingham upholstered chair and laughing at teddy bear in that same chair in another. Both photos were taken by mom.
“The Duke and Duchess hope everyone enjoys these new photos of Princess Charlotte as much as they do,” the Palace captioned the two photos tweeted this morning.

Very cute, though, personally, I’m still partial to her older brother, 2-year old Prince George. Maybe it’s a first born bonding thing or maybe because he has the same name of the county I live in, Prince George’s County, Maryland. ha!
This is the second time the Millennial royal couple broke with tradition and skipped the hiring of the official palace photographer. As with Charlotte and George’s first photos, her taken by mom and George’s (a family photo) taken by Middleton’s dad.
