England has gone wild with the breaking news that Prince William and Duchess Kate are expecting their first child. The happy announcement came just minutes ago from St. James Palace. There is some concern, however, because Kate has been hospitalized with a severe form of morning sickness. The 30 year-old Duchess is expected to be in the hospital for several days, and will then be on bed rest for an undisclosed period of time. This morning's announcement did not offer a due date. The palace would only say that Kate is in the "very early" stage of her pregnancy.

The Prime Minister of England, David Cameron, commented on Twitter that "he is delighted with the news." and that the young royal couple "will make wonderful parents."
