The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William are expecting their first child!

The news was expected, but mum was the word out of London until today!

According to People,

"Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby," read the statement released Monday. "The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news."

Also according to People, if their first born is a girl, she can expect to inherit the throne from daddy, thanks to a new rule that was set.  Boys used to take precedent, but not anymore!  Go girls!!
