Prince William and Duchess Kate reveal when baby No. 3 is due

Kate Middleton Paddington Bear Prince William Prince Harry

A statement from Kensington Palace said the couple were "delighted" to be welcoming the latest addition to their family.

Kate and William, both 35, announced that they were pregnant back in September - but as they didn't confirm exactly how far gone Kate was, the due date remained unclear.

At the end of their dance, Paddington, ever the gentleman (or should we say gentlebear), kissed Middleton's hand to bid her aideu.

The Duchess of Cambridge showed off her dancing skills as she enjoyed a twirl with Paddington Bear on Monday.

In true Kate style, she accessorised with a trusty pair of black suede court shoes and wore her hair in her trademark blow-dried style, looking more than comfortable in the stylish outfit as she danced with a human-size Paddington Bear - making Princes William and Harry giggle on the sidelines.

Media speculation on Kate's exact due date reached fever pitched in the final weeks of her previous pregnancies and will no doubt have royal fans on the edge of their seats again come April.

As with her other two pregnancies, she is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, or acute morning sickness.

Another said: "Thank you for sharing this special news today".

Kate suffered so badly when pregnant with Prince George, now four, that she was hospitalised and reportedly put on a drip to ensure she got the right nutrients.

Last week, Kate Middleton made her first public appearance since announcing her third pregnancy.

The new baby will join the couple's older children, Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2.

Either way, the new arrival will be fifth in line to throne, bumping uncle Prince Harry down to sixth.
