A bout of morning sickness has tipped off Britons to the fact that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby.

The news came after Prince William accompanied his wife Kate to hospital where she was admitted for acute morning sickness.

The British government is soon expected to introduce, and backdate, laws governing succession, meaning that if William and Kate's first child is a girl, she will become Queen and not be overlooked for the role by a younger first born male.
