Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge Expecting Royal Baby!

Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge Expecting Royal Baby!The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby, St James’s Palace has announced. Members of the Royal Family and the duchess’s family, the Middletons, are said to be delighted.

‘Less than 12 weeks’

A spokesman said the duchess, who is thought to be less than 12 weeks pregnant, has been admitted to a London hospital with acute morning sickness and is likely to stay for several days. The baby – the couple’s first – will be born third in line to the throne, after Prince Charles and Prince William. Catherine and William, who are both 30, were married at Westminster Abbey in April 2011.

BBC’s royal correspondent Peter Hunt said William and Kate were staying at her parents in Berkshire at the weekend and travelled to the private London hospital from there by car. William spent several hours with his wife but left the King Edward VII hospital shortly after 20:00 GMT. It is understood that Kate is being cared for by gynaecologist Marcus Setchell, who delivered the Countess of Wessex’s two children.


‘Wonderful parents’

A statement from St. James’ Palace said the duchess was suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, which requires supplementary hydration and nutrients.

“As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter,” it added.

St James’s Palace refused to be drawn on when the royal couple became aware of the pregnancy, only saying “recently”. But it is understood the palace announcement was prompted by the Duchess’s medical condition.

Prime Minister David Cameron wrote on Twitter that he was “delighted by the news…They will make wonderful parents.”

Prince Harry In Trouble For Naked Romp In Vegas

Nude photos of Prince Harry partying in a Las Vegas hotel room are causing another royal headache for the British monarchy. Buckingham Palace confirmed on Wednesday that the pictures of the 27-year-old naked prince playing pool in a hotel suite, posted by TMZ.com on Tuesday, are real.

According to TMZ, the pictures were taken Friday after Harry and his entourage went down to the hotel bar and invited the unidentified women back to his hotel suite and engaged in a game of “strip pool.” In one of the images, Harry is seen standing and covering his genitals with his hand; in another, the prince is bear-hugging a naked woman.

Sources told ABC that Harry—who was heavily involved in London’s Olympic duties—”has been on holiday with friends, letting off steam before the next phase of his military duties.” According to the BBC, the palace said it would be making no further comments about the nude images. But the “Hangover”-like shots of Harry, third in line to the British throne, have nonetheless called into question the prince’s royal judgment.


“Everybody knows better than to party naked in a room full of strangers without confiscating the cellphones,” ABC News public relations consultant Howard Bragman said. “That’s just Hollywood 101. There’s always deniability, but once the photos are taken, you’re caught.”

Harry’s been in trouble before. In 2005, the “playboy prince” apologized after a photograph taken at a costume party showed him wearing a Nazi uniform. In 2002, Prince Charles sent Harry, then 17, to rehab after he admitted smoking marijuana and getting drunk in a pub near the royal family’s country estate—which earned him the nickname “wild child.”

In recent years, though, Harry has made an effort to shed his “wild” image, taking on more royal responsibility—including a solo tour of the Caribbean and Brazil in May.

What bearing could Prince Harry’s recent wild romp in Vegas have on his military and royal standing? Was this partying behavior understandable or way too reckless? Share your opinions with us!
