Pregnant Kate Middleton Hospitalized for Complications

By December 3, 2012

Follow me on:

Buckingham Palace has confirmed that Kate Middleton is expecting her first baby. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are both 30 and this will be the first child for both. Prince William is the grandson of Queen Elizabeth and is third in line for the throne. The couple has been the source of pregnancy rumors ever since their wedding in 2011.

Though Kate is already experiencing problems with her pregnancy, namely Hyperemesis Gravidarium, excessive nausea and vomiting in pregnancy, according to the Palace. She has been admitted to the hospital.

Now that she's pregnant, the talk will start turning towards the sex of the baby. When Princess Diana was pregnant with William, I was a very young girl. I remember my mother saying that she hoped for Diana's sake that her baby was a boy and I certainly didn't understand that at the time. Given the fact that Queen Elizabeth II has been such a strong ruler, do you think, putting the new succession rules aside for a moment, it's as important for this baby to be a boy?

The Commonwealth is in the middle of changing the succession rules, so this could be very interesting if it’s a girl!
