"Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in July," the prince's office said in a statement.
The pregnancy of the 31-year-old, still popularly known as Kate Middleton, was revealed in December when she was admitted to hospital for four days suffering from a type of severe morning sickness which is slightly more common among women expecting twins.
"The Duchess's condition continues to improve since her stay in hospital last month," the statement added.
