Prince William and Kate Middleton wanted to wait until Christmas before announcing her pregnancy, but Kate’s acute morning sickness made that impossible.
"There is a real excitement," said a royal source, "but obviously people are anxious about the Duchess,” who is still hospitalized.
The royal pair timed the pregnancy just right. They didn’t want to overshadow the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee or forgo a major worldwide tour.
"I don't think anything is left to chance,” Majesty Editor Ingrid Seward told People. "Kate is probably one of the most organized [royal] women we've ever known."
