William and Kate expect baby in April: Kensington Palace

LONDON: Prince William and his wife Kate are expecting their third baby in April, Kensington Palace announced on Tuesday.
The couple — the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge — were “delighted” to confirm the month their child is due to be born, a brief statement said.
Kensington Palace announced Kate’s pregnancy last month, after she was forced to cancel an engagement because of extreme morning sickness.
The duchess has continued to suffer from the condition, but made a surprise appearance at a royal engagement on Monday.
She is due to visit Norway and Sweden with William on an official visit early in 2018.
The couple already have two children: Prince George, born in 2013, and Princess Charlotte, aged two.
Both were born at St. Mary’s Hospital in London, where William was delivered in 1982.

World’s oldest person dies in Japan at age of 117

  • Tajima was born on Aug. 4, 1900, and had more than 160 descendants
  • Chiyo Yoshida, another Japanese woman aged 116, is now the world’s oldest person, says Gerontology Research Group

TOKYO: The world’s oldest person has died in southern Japan at the age of 117.
An official in the town of Kikai says Nabi Tajima died in a hospital on Saturday shortly before 8 p.m. She had been hospitalized since January.
Tajima was born on Aug. 4, 1900, and reportedly had more than 160 descendants, including great-great-great grandchildren. Her town of Kikai is in Kagoshima prefecture on Kyushu, the southernmost of Japan’s four main islands.
She became the world’s oldest person seven months ago after the death of Violet Brown in Jamaica, also at the age of 117.
The US-based Gerontology Research Group says that another Japanese woman, Chiyo Yoshida, is now the world’s oldest person in its records. She is 116 years old.
