The former Kate Middleton is due to give birth to her first baby in July, St. James's Palace announced on Monday.

Officials said the 31-year-old Duchess of Cambridge is doing better now after a bout of severe morning sickness.

Royal officials were forced to announce the pregnancy in December after the Duchess' admission into the hospital for hyperemesis gravidarum, a serious condition that causes severe vomiting and dehydration.

Whether a boy or a girl, the child of Kate and Prince William will be third in line to the British throne.
