— The Duchess of Cambridge, the former Kate Middleton, and her husband Prince William are expecting their first child, who will be third in line to the British throne.

The duchess, 30, is in the very early stages of pregnancy, their office at Clarence House in London said in a statement Monday.

She was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in central London on Monday with hyperemesis gravidarum, or acute morning sickness, and is expected to stay in hospital for several days.

The child will follow Queen Elizabeth II’s son, Prince Charles, and William in the line of succession.

Prime Minister David Cameron has pledged, together with the governments of the 16 other countries of which the queen is monarch, to overhaul royal succession laws to allow a first-born daughter to ascend to the throne before her younger brothers.
