Duchess' pregnancy sparks royal emotions

Britain's Duchess of Cambridge

The Duchess of Cambridge's pregnancy has apparently caused "excitement" and "anxiety" for the British royal family.

Earlier this week it was revealed that Catherine and her husband Prince William are expecting their first child.

Due to a condition which causes severe morning sickness Catherine was admitted to a London hospital, which has reportedly caused mixed emotions for her loved ones.

"There is a real excitement," a royal source revealed to People magazine. "But obviously people are anxious about the Duchess."

The King Edward VII hospital where Catherine is staying has fallen foul to a hoax from an Australian radio station.

Sydney-based 2Day FM presenters called the institution pretending to be Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles.

A nurse at the infirmary gave the imposters information about Catherine's current condition.

The hospital has since said it "deeply regrets" sharing the confidential details, while the radio station "sincerely apologises" for the prank.

Catherine currently remains at the London hospital, with William spending most of his time at her bedside.

St James' Palace released a statement last night to assure well-wishers the royal mother-to-be is improving.

"The Duchess of Cambridge is continuing to feel better. She and the duke are immensely grateful for the good wishes they have received. She will remain in hospital at present and will continue to be treated for Hyperemesis gravidarum," the statement read.
