Back in July during a Royal visit to Poland, Duchess Kate cracked a joke after receiving a sleep toy for an infant that she and Prince William would just have to put the toy to use by having more babies. Well, look who took that joke seriously? Prince William must have dimmed the 16th Century chandeliers, lit a currant scone-scented candle (England’s most sensual candle choice), put on some dancing music, and romanced Duchess Kate into her third baby-making night. That’s totally how it went down, right?
Kensington Palace confirmed the news today that The Heart Family of Britain has decided to introduce a new doll…er, I mean baby, to their family. Just once I wish the Royals would drop the formalities and Instagram a picture of their still-damp pregnancy pee stick like regular famous people.

Sorry Meghan Markle, I hope you don’t mind sharing 2018. The Year of Royal Baby Number Three!!!!..and also The TV Lady’s Engagement.
Just like Duchess Kate’s first pregnancy with Prince George and second pregnancy with Princess Charlotte, Duchess Kate has a case of Hypermesis Gravidarum. That always sounds to me like a Hogwarts spell for turning someone into a giant pile of mice, but it’s actually a super-serious version of morning sickness.
According to People magazine, Kate is rumored to be less than three months pregnant. Duchess Kate was supposed to work a gig (I know, calling it work feels wrong) in London today, but she’ll be at home being taken care of The Queen’s best medically-trained bedside corgis instead. Kensington Palace reportedly made the announcement so people wouldn’t wonder what was up when Kate was a no-show.
But how does the rest of the Royal family feel about Kate’s new baby? For more on that, we go live to Prince George immediately after hearing the news:
Yes, that’s an old picture of Prince George. But I like to imagine he had a similar reaction. “Oi, ANOTHER ONE?!? You have got to be joking. I’ve already done one round of crying and diapers and hair-pulling and toy-stealing – I’m done. I’m the damn future King of England! Fetch me my rolly suitcase and my junior training crown, I’m moving in with Unky Harry.”
