The big news was announced on December 3, 2012 in a statement from St James's Palace:
Dec. 6, 2012
"Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby.
The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Princes of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news."
And from that moment on, the world was on Bump Watch. This photo, taken the day the Duchess was released from the hospital after being treated for severe morning sickness doesn't have much of the Royal Bump, but we guesstimate that she was about nine weeks pregnant. The yellow flowers have our attention.
