We were too busy fawning over Princess Charlotte and Prince George to realise another Cambridge was joining the mix...

Let's go back to a time before we all imploded over the simply joyous news that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are adding another to their beautiful brood.

It was the royal tour of Poland.

A time when we couldn't get enough of the cherub cheeks of Prince William and Duchess Catherine's two little ones - Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The mini royals melted our hearts as they stole the show on the royal tour once again.

And employing the world's smartest tactic, Kate let the news we've been wanting to hear for ages, drop.

But we were obviously too busy losing our minds over Princess Charlotte's cute courtesy... You really need to watch it in the video player below!

While speaking with fans in Warsaw, Poland on Monday, July 17, Kate was given a present for a newborn baby - a soft toy designed to help soothe babies by mirroring the sounds from the womb.

After accepting the gift, Kate reportedly turned to her husband and joked, "We will just have to have more babies!"

You can watch that moment in the video at the top!

According to our maths, the Duchess would currently be about 12 weeks, meaning at the time of her subtle comment she would have been four weeks pregnant.

We bet Princess Charlotte will make a wonderful big sister.

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child," the palace said.
