Breaking News: Prince William and Catherine Expecting First Child

 

Prince William and Duchess Catherine are back in the world's spotlight again: The Prince's office announced today that a year-and-a-half after their wedding, the royal couple is expecting their first child. 

"Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby," the office said in a statement.

Catherine, according to the New York Times, is in a London hospital, and the pregnancy is in its early stages.

ABC noted that last year, the heads of 16 Commonwealth countries agreed to a change in the rules of succession so that first-born children of either gender can take the throne. Queen Elizabeth II was only eligible to be monarch because her father had no male children. The British Parliament must still amend existing law to make the succession change official.

"Put simply, if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were to have a little girl, that girl would one day be our queen," British Prime Minister David Cameron told reporters in 2011.

Everyone here at Luxury Travel Advisor wishes the couple—and their family—all the best.
