William and Kate are expecting Baby #2! This unexpected announcement came via the palace on September 8, 2014.

As she did during the early weeks of her first pregnancy, the Duchess is suffering from a severe form of morning sickness (Hyperemesis gravidarum). This has caused her to cancel two scheduled engagements.

We wish Kate a happy and healthy second pregnancy, and hope to see her return to official engagements soon!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took the train from Kings Lynn, Norfolk back to London and arrived during rush-hour, making their way, almost unnoticed among the heavy crowds.

The couple had been staying at Anmer Hall for the past fortnight, overseeing the final stages of a £1.5million refurbishment. Their home is on the Queen’s Sandringham estate, and is where they will be spending more time when Prince William starts his new job as a pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

William & Kate Take Time Off for a Romantic Date Night

Daily Star Sunday
William and Kate were snapped arriving at the Kings Head Hotel in Great Bircham, Norfolk where they took some time off for a romantic date night.

The Kings Head Hotel
The hotel is located just three miles from the Queen’s Sandringham estate. They spent the last two weeks in Norfolk overseeing final renovations of the 200-year-old Grade II-listed mansion gifted by the Queen.

Sunday Express
The couple arrived at about 7:45pm and William asked for a table in a quieter part of the pub as the main restaurant was packed. The staff sat them in the bar. He ordered a lime and soda while Kate sipped on a white wine spritzer as four bodyguards sat at an adjacent table.

The couple then ordered the same meal, grilled fillet of black bream with roasted Mediterranean vegetables, baby spinach, marinated olives and oven-dried tomatoes with arrabiata sauce, priced at £16.25. William requested two scoops of vanilla ice cream, with two spoons.
