The Duchess, widely known as Kate, was admitted this afternoon to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London with a form of acute morning sickness. As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter.
The Royal Baby — regardless of gender — will remain third in line to the throne. It will follow grandfather Prince Charles, 64 (first in line), father William, 30 (second in line). William’s younger brother, Prince Harry, will move to fourth in line.

It is widely speculated that the name will likely come from the small pool of English monarch names, such as Charles (two kings), William (four), Henry (eight), Victoria (one) and Elizabeth (two). Anne, Mary, Catherine (like her mother) and Margaret also are approved names for queens.
