Duchess of Cambridge pregnant

Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have announced they are expecting baby number two.

Catherine and husband Prince William are already proud parents to Prince George, who was born in July last year.

Clarence House today confirmed the happy news that a new royal is on its way, with Catherine expecting the arrival next year.

Kensington Palace released a statement outlining how pleased The Queen and both families are with the joyful news.

"Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child," the statement read.

"The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news. As with her first pregnancy, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum."

While Catherine, 32, has not been admitted to hospital for the super sickness condition, she is being treated by doctors at the palace. She's also had to cancel some royal arrangements.

"Her Royal Highness will no longer accompany The Duke of Cambridge on their planned engagement in Oxford today. The Duchess is being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace," the announcement continued.

British Prime Minister David Cameron was quick to tweet his best wishes to the happy couple. "Many congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. I'm delighted by the happy news that they're expecting another baby," he posted.

William and Catherine have made no secret of the fact they want to expand their brood, and recently relocated to country house Anmer Hall in Norfolk.

William also recently announced his decision to take a pilots job with East Anglian air ambulance, based close to his new house.
