Royal Baby mania is among us!

And according to UK publication The Metro, another Royal Family member is with child – and it’s not only news to her, but her other children!

In a now-deleted Tweet, The Metro incorrectly named Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall, 70 instead of Duchess Catherine, 36, who is indeed pregnant with her third child.

“The Duchess of Cornwall is due to give birth to her third next month,” they penned, alongside a link to Duchess Catherine’s latest outing opening the new Place2Be HQ in London.

Err, whoops!

Duchess Camilla’s son Tom Parker Bowles, 43, was quick to point out the error tweeting: “Dear God. Really?”

Right royal bungle! The Metro incorrectly named the Duchess of Cornwall instead of Duchess Catherine.

Duchess Catherine is pregnant with her third child, NOT Duchess Camilla.

“Congratulations on your impending sibling. Must have been a surprise,” comedian British Dom Joly chimed in.

“You’re not wrong,” food critic Tom responded in good humour.

“Better start finding excuses not to babysit, now Tom,” a second fan teased.

“Does Charles know Tom?” user @Frostybutcher joked of Tom’s stepfather, Prince Charles.

“I’m the last to know Frosty. As ever,” Tom, who starred on the Channel 9 cooking series The Hot Plate, quipped back.

Camilla’s oldest son Tom Parker Bowles managed to find the funny side of the slip-up.

The tweet has since been taken down.

Duchess Camilla is the proud mother to Tom and daughter Laura Lopes, 39, from her first marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles.

Meanwhile, today’s outing will be one of Duchess Catherine’s last public appearances before she commences maternity leave and prepares to welcome her third child and younger sibling for Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two.

It’s believed Kate’s final public appearance will be on Commonwealth Day as she joins key members of the Royal Family at Westminster Abbey on March 12th.
