The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's baby is a "new beginning" for the monarchy, according to one royal commentator.
It's very important for the monarchy. This is the way forward. This is the first child who will be an heir to the throne whatever sex they are. It's a new beginning... I think it's wonderful. They must be really, really happy about this. It's the culmination of a terrific year and what Kate really wanted - to get pregnant in a Jubilee year.
The Duchess of Cambridge left hospital today, after three days of treatment for a severe form of morning sickness.
A nurse disclosed information about Kate's condition to two DJs who rang the hospital claiming to be the Queen and Prince Charles.
The Duchess of Cambridge is to spend another night in hospital being treated for acute morning sickness but is said to be feeling better.
