Prince William was greeted by throngs of well-wishers when he arrived in Oxford on Monday for a royal visit shortly after announcing that he and his wife are expecting their second child. The Duke of Cambridge was supposed to be attending Monday's event — which involves opening a China Centre Building — with the Duchess of Cambridge, but she had to pull out at the last minute due to her severe morning sickness. Royal fans will remember that Kate suffered from debilitating morning sickness, or Hyperemesis Gravidarum, during her last pregnancy with Prince George, and she's suffering once again. However, unlike with George, Kate is currently not seeking treatment at a hospital and will instead be treated by doctors at her home in Kensington Palace. This event marks William's first official engagement since returning back from holiday with Kate. (The royals tend to take a break from royal duties during the month of August for a Summer vacation.)
As if preparing for another baby wasn't a big challenge already, the royal couple also have many things on the horizon. Kate was slated to make her first solo overseas trip later this month with a short visit to Malta, although the Palace says that the trip might be canceled if her illness continues. The pair has also been spending quite a bit of time working on their new home in Norfolk, which is expected to be completed later this year. Both William and Kate were spotted arriving back from a trip to Norfolk in late August. The new home is expected to be their official home base, as William has signed on for a new job as an air ambulance pilot in Norwich.
