Worst-kept secret ever :) Great news for the Royal family, but I do feel for Kate. Having suffered acute morning sickness myself, I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy :(

Whatever gender or genders (there are rumors of twins) I just want everyone to be healthy!

Yay for the duke and duchess of Cambridge!

Terrible morning sickness runs in my family. One sister did end up hospitalized, the other three of us came close but managed to ride it out. Good thing too. The one who went in the hospital picked up a virus there.

Hope it subsides quickly and that she and the baby have a wonderful time together, and William too of course.

Royal baby mania in full bloom! One Brit tabloid even got a forensic artist to draw up pictures of what Kate & Wills' child might look like - ever so slightly creepy.

[quote=""Divia""]Yeah having a girl would be super cool.[/quote]

There's quite a number of little royal girls who will be queens. The following will not lose their place in succession if their fathers (all of whom are heirs to their respective thrones) have a son:
Princess Ingrid Alexandra of Norway
Princess Elisabeth of Belgium
Princess Catharina-Amalia of the Netherlands

Princess Estelle of Sweden will follow another future Queen, her mother, Crown Princess Victoria, on the throne, regardless of whether she has brothers.

Princess Leonor of Spain is the eldest child and one of two daughters of Felipe, Prince of Asturias, the heir to the Spanish throne. She will become Queen if she does not have a brother. There has been talk of changing the succession to the eldest child regardless of gender.

Seems it'll be the age of the Queens eventually.
