Britain’s Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, announced earlier this month that they’re expecting a baby!

(They’re formally known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge).

The happy couple is thrilled, and some say the anticipation of a royal baby is cause for the entire United Kingdom to celebrate! It made news headlines around the world.
