Prince William and Kate announced their pregnancy just hours ago, but the world has been eagerly anticipating their new arrival since their wedding last year.
Kate is less than 12 weeks pregnant, and the baby is reported to be due next July or August.
The Duchess is currently in hospital in London, suffering from severe morning sickness but she is expected to be released within the next couple of days.
While we wait to hear the pitter patter of royal baby feet, we've put together a collection of our favourite royal baby photos.
