(Newser) – The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have confirmed that their second baby is due in April—the first time they've offered a month for the royal birth. Kensington Palace also said in a statement today that the duchess, who has been sidelined by a prolonged bout of severe morning sickness, continues to improve. The former Kate Middleton and Prince William are scheduled to welcome Singapore President Tony Tan when he arrives on a four-day state visit this week. Kate is also expected to attend the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014 award ceremony.
