Twitter users were, once again, prescient and called the pregnancy before it was announced.
After her fab new 'do, an article said Kate Middleton was pregnant; cause we all know pregnancy = hormone change = wanting a new hair style—

Scientific evidence! Rumors swirled for days among media outlets.
Friend at Starbucks says I need to cite a more credible source than US Weekly to win the bet that Kate Middleton is pregnant.—

Why can't we just figure out if Kate Middleton is really pregnant before trying to figure ANYTHING ELSE out? Please? Thanks.—

Just one question, in the spirit of Twitter: Will they name the baby “hashtag?”
This Twitter user thinks it is cause for a holiday.
If Kate Middleton is pregnant do we get a public holiday?—

Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge! Wishing you all the best.
Update: The Guardian is live-blogging the big event.
For months? Stay tuned!
Of course, #Kate, Kate Middleton, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate and other variations are now trending in and out.
The palace could no longer keep it secret, because the duchess is suffering from a severe form of morning sickness.
Kate is in hospital suffering from a severe form of morning sickness known as hyperemesis gravidarum.—

Heh. It’s not just morning sickness, though. It can be very serious.
Basic facts about Hyperemesis gravidarum – affects up to 2% of women, could carry on untl birth and Charlotte Bronte died from it. Carry on.—

Joan Walsh backtracks on her mocking of Middleton’s hyperemesis gravidarium. She had retweeted this:
I apologize for mocking Kate Middleton's morning sickness. But be forewarned: Not deferential to monarchy. Unfollow if that's a problem.—
