Royal baby 2 for William and Kate

It's official. England's Prince George is going to be a big brother.

Even little princes have to share Mummy and Daddy. England’s Prince George has a baby brother or sister on the way. British royal officials said Monday that Prince William and the duchess of Cambridge, the former Kate Middleton, are expecting their second child.

As with her first pregnancy, Middleton is being treated for severe morning sickness. Her symptoms have caused her to miss some public appearances, including one in Oxford.Prince William told well-wishers in Oxford that Kate should be over the worst of her symptoms in a few weeks.

“She wishes she could be here,” he said. “She’s feeling OK, thanks. It’s been a tricky few days — week or so — but obviously we’re basically thrilled, it’s great news, and early days. We’re hoping things settle down and she feels a bit better.”
