Prince Harry is to become an Uncle for the third time.

This morning, the news of Princess Charlotte and her brother Prince George welcoming a new sibling had broken – as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge confirmed they are expecting a third child.

Needless to say, the whole entire country has found themselves over the moon for the family… and it would appear that we’re not the only ones.

Taking to Twitter, the official account for the Royal Family had confirmed the news in a message which reads: ‘The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child’.

This was confirmed once more by William’s brother Prince Harry – who has now shared his reaction to the news of another addiction to his family during his visit to Manchester this afternoon.

Harry is in Manchester for a series of official Palace engagements, including a visit to some of the young victims of the Ariana Grande concert tragedy, and had stopped to answer the questions of a reported waiting outside.

After being quizzed on how he felt about the wonderful news, Harry gave a huge thumbs up and shared that it is: ‘Fantastic, great…Very, very happy for them’.

The Prince then assured the awaiting party that expectant mother Kate is well, despite having to cancel her own appearance at the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in London due to being admitted to Kensington Palace hospital.

The Duchess has been admitted to hospital after once more suffering with Hyperemesis Gravidarum (a serve from of morning sickness which she also experienced when pregnant with Prince George and Princess Charlotte).

When asked about this, Harry shared that Kate was doing ‘okay’ whilst recovering in hospital.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the incredibly news of a new Royal Family arrival, so do comment below!
