The newest royal, who joins Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children — Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis — will be seventh in line for the throne.
And the new bundle is already the apple of grandma Doria Ragland’s eye, according to Kensington Palace.
“Ms. Ragland is very happy about this lovely news and she looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild,” a statement read.
The newlyweds began dating in July 2016 after meeting on a blind date and were first revealed as a couple in October 2016. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wed on May 19 in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
