LONDON — Britain's Prince William and his wife, Kate, are expecting a third child, royal officials announced Monday after she canceled a public engagement due to morning sickness.

The couple, who are formally titled the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, already have two children — Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2.

"The queen and members of both families are delighted with the news," Kensington Palace said in a statement.
