Prince William and Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, are having another baby, the royal household announced in a statement Monday.

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child.”

The couple’s first child, Prince George, was born in July 2013, and became third in line to inherit the throne, behind Prince Charles and William. With the new baby, Prince Harry drops to fifth.

“The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.”

Middleton, 32, is being treated at Kensington Palace for morning sickness again, which she also had when she was pregnant with her first child. The statement explained that because of the condition, which causes severe and persistent nausea and vomiting, she would no longer accompany Prince William to Oxford Monday.
