2010: The engagement of Prince William and Kate Middleton is announced in London. Middleton's engagement ring was the 12-carat sapphire engagement ring that once belonged to William's mother, Princess Diana. The couple would marry on April 29, 2011, with Middleton taking the royal title Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

LONDON (AP) -

Palace officials say Prince William and his wife are expecting their first child.

St. James Palace said Monday that the Duchess of Cambridge has a severe form of morning sickness and is currently in a London hospital.

As the first born to William - who is second in line to the throne after his father, Prince Charles - the couple's first child stands an excellent chance of one day becoming monarch.

Whether boy or girl, the child will be behind Prince William in the line of succession to the throne, Cabinet Office officials said.
