Prince William and his wife - formerly known as Kate Middleton, now officially the Duchess of Cambridge - are expecting a baby, according to a dispatch from the palace.
Pregnancy rumors have swirled around the couple since they were married on April 29 of last year to much worldwide fanfare. Many speculated in September that Kate was pregnant after she eschewed wine for water on a trip to Asia. There's no confirmation how far along Kate is, but some women like to wait a customary three months before going public with their pregnancy.
Will and Kate's child will be next in line for the throne behind Prince Charles (William's father) and Will himself. British law recently changed, allowing their child to be monarch whether it is a boy or a girl.
