Hyperemesis gravidarum affects about one in every 200 pregnancies and results in severe nausea and vomiting – with one of the main dangers being dehydration. Hyperemesis gravidarum needs specialist treatment and often requires a stay in hospital. Duchess Kate canceled a planned appearance Monday morning. Kate is understood to be less than three months pregnant. It had been expected that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge would be taking a foreign trip this autumn but because this things may change.
The royal family
The expectant child will become the fifth in line to the throne behind Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George. The child will be the Queen’s sixth great-grandchild. Prime Minister Theresa May has tweeted her congratulations to the couple, calling it “fantastic news”. The royals are already parents to 3-year-old Prince George and 2-year-old Princess Charlotte. Speculation will begin immediately on the sex and likely name of the couple’s third child, with Alice – popular with bookmakers last time – or Alexandra possibilities for a girl and Frederick, James or Philip for a boy. The Palace has not said when Kate is expected to give birth.
