Generally, the news of a birth of a child is greeted with congratulations and blessings.

Even more so when the baby is royalty.

However, internet etiquette (if there ever was one) evidently decided to stay on holiday after the long weekend, with a barrage of insulting comments surrounding the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton's pregnancy announcement.

The announcement came on Monday (Sept 4) after the 35-year-old had to cancel a public event due to acute morning sickness. She suffered from the same condition, known as hyperemesis gravidarum, for her last two pregnancies as well.

The mother-of-two hadn't reached the 12-week stage yet - the time women normally wait till -  to make the news public.

Kate is mother to four-year-old Prince George, who is preparing to start school on Thursday, and two-year-old Princess Charlotte.

Despite the good news, people on Twitter seem to have an issue with the Duchess' ability to have children.

They also seem to mind that she's sleeping with her husband, Prince William (please take a minute to absorb the absurdity of this).

Nevermind that she suffers from terrible morning sickness which is a valid reason to take time off her official duties.

At least there was one who thinks others should be inspired by the news.

These days, if a woman is not making babies, she's considered selfish (if she's a young person) or a shrivelled up prune (if older), but if she is actively procreating, then she's got nothing else to do? Seriously, haters, make up your mind.

Or better yet, maybe just stop commenting negatively on anything about women.
