    Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

    Queenslanders are welcoming news overnight that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - Will and Kate - are expecting a third child.

    Prince George – the heir to the throne after his grandfather and father - is now four and Princess Charlotte is two.

    With only 30 weeks until the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, Queenslanders and other members of the Commonwealth might have further reason to celebrate by the time of the Opening Ceremony - the arrival of a new Prince or Princess.

    I join all Queenslanders in congratulating the Royal couple on their happy news.
