Second Child of Prince William and wife Kate due in April


London, Oct 20: The second child of Prince William and his wife Kate is scheduled to be born in April, an official statement said on Monday. The child will be the fourth in line to the British throne.

William, grandson of Queen Elizabeth and second-in-line to the throne, had announced last month that Kate was expecting a second baby to join Prince George who was born in July last year, but no date for the birth was disclosed at the time.

The statement from the office of William also confirmed that Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, is still suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, acute morning sickness which causes severe nausea and vomiting and requires supplementary hydration and nutrients for which she had to cancel a number of official engagements.

During her first pregnancy, Kate was so ill she required hospitalization. This time, she is being treated by doctors at her residence in Kensington Palace. She cancelled a planned engagement in Oxford to rest and receive medical care.
