The Duchess of Cambridge is in her first trimester — she's less than 12 weeks along according to People, and she's experiencing "acute" morning sickness.

Kate, 30, has been taken to King Edward VII Hospital which is located in Central London, and William is there with her.

A source says the couple decided to be "open" about her pregnancy because she was admitted to the hospital this afternoon, but adds, "we aren't going into detail about the pregnancy itself," since it's so early.

When breaking the good news, the Palace stated Kate is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, which can be described as severe nausea and vomiting and can lead to dehydration and dangerous weight loss if left untreated.

"Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter."
