April baby will help Royal Family usher in spring
The royal baby will most likely arrive in late April, according to experts.
Kensington Palace announced that Prince William and his wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, were expecting their third child a week ago.
It is widely believed that Kate's debilitating hyperemesis gravidarum — or extreme morning sickness — forced an early media release, well before the traditional 12-week mark when such announcements are usually made.
Kate suffered hyperemesis gravidarum with her first two babies, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and in both cases the pregnancies were announced early.
This is because the Duchess of Cambridge was unable to fulfil her official duties and was hospitalised due to dehydration.
British tabloid The Mirror noted that Kate's pregnancy with Charlotte was announced on September 8, and the princess was born on May 2.
Assuming a similar experience of morning sickness this time, and given the latest announcement on September 4, we can expect to see a new royal baby in late April 2018, according to The Mirror.
