As with her first two pregnancies, Kate is suffering from acute morning sickness, known as Hyperemesis Gravidarum, which forced her to cancel an engagement today in London. According to People (opens in new tab), Kate is likely less than three months pregnant (which would make her due around February or March) and the announcement was made because she was forced to cancel an engagement.

This third baby will join Princess Charlotte, 2, and Prince George, 4, and their royal chubby cheeks.
