The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their first baby, it was announced on Monday.

St James's Palace confirmed the news and said the Duchess had been admitted to the King Edward VII Hospital in central London with acute morning sickness and is expected to stay in hospital for several days.

The royal couple sparked baby rumours last week during a tour in Cambridge, after William accepted a romper suit from a well-wisher, telling her "I'll keep that."

The handmade baby-gro featured a helicopter and the words "Daddy's little co-pilot" - a reference to the Prince's career as a search and rescue captain.

"When I gave it to him he said 'I'll keep that' and handed it to his aide."
