London - Britain's Prince William and Duchess Catherine are
relieved they no longer have to keep her pregnancy a secret.
While the couple were forced to announce the news before
passing the 12-week mark when Catherine was rushed to hospital earlier this
month with hyperemesis gravidarum - acute morning sickness - they are happy not
to have to lie to their friends and family anymore.
Catherine's friend Jessica Hay said: ''Neither Kate nor Will
like keeping secrets this huge. They're relieved that everyone knows.''
Meanwhile, a friend of William's late mother Princess Diana
hopes the couple name the baby after Diana if it's a girl.
Marie Sutton told In Touch Weekly magazine: ''Diana would

Jessica recently revealed Catherine - who was known as Kate
Middleton before her marriage - had ''always loved'' the name Diana.
She said: ''Catherine's been saying, as per her mother's
suggestion, that she wants to meet the baby first and then decide. If it's a
girl, Victoria is a favourite and, funnily enough, Diana is a name that
Catherine has always loved.''
