It was announced today that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their third child.

The news was confirmed by the Royal Family on Monday morning.

The pregnancy has already been greeted with much jubilation online.

Of course, there are the obligatory jokes but one is currently dominating everyone's timeline.

In just over nine months time it will be June 2018.

Any couple who become pregnant around this time will have maternity leave around that time.

What's happening around that period?

Why it's only the FIFA World Cup in Russia!

Cue the joke repetition:

We have no doubts that William will continue to be an attentive and responsible parent after the birth of his third child.

However, he is the President of the Football Association so he will certainly have one eye on the action next summer.
