The royal couple disclosed the pregnancy to the public earlier than they intended to due to Kate’s acute morning sickness (hyperemesis) that had her hospitalized in December. As a result, Princess Kate, 31, has been absent from several events within the past couple weeks. On Friday, January 11, Princess Kate was able to make an appearance at the London’s National Portrait Gallery for the unveiling of her first-ever official portrait.


A statement from the St. James Palace said, "Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in July." It also stated, “The Duchess's condition continues to improve since her stay in hospital last month.”


The couple has yet to reveal the gender.
