Duke and Duchess of Cambridge expecting child in April

The Duchess spent her Monday morning at a kids' charity event at Paddington Station with Prince William, Prince Harry, and everyone's favorite children's book character, Paddington.

Kensington Palace Twitter account made the announcement on Tuesday.

Pregnant Kate Middleton may be suffering from acute morning sickness, but that didn't stop her grinning from ear to ear as she stepped on Platform 1 at Paddington station in London today (16 October).

The royal couple is already parents to their two small children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Kate also missed George's first day of school a few days later.

Making a surprise appearance at Paddington Station to meet the cast and crew from upcoming film Paddington 2, Kate sported a shorter haircut than before and a blush pink Orla Kiely dress.

Although her pregnancy was formally announced last month, the royal family had not disclosed just when the former Kate Middleton was actually due.

"Her condition is improved, but the duchess does continue to be affected by hyperemesis gravidarum", a royal aide told ABC News Monday. Mahira, who described the royal encounter as "mind-blowing", said: "I asked her what's it like to be a princess, because I'd like to be one, and she said her favourite thing was meeting special people like us". Via a statement through Kensington Palace, of course. At the end of the engagement, William, Kate and Harry waved off the Belmond British Pullman as it departed Paddington and journeyed through the English Countryside.
