Pregnant Kate Middleton is still suffering from a severe bout of morning sickness, and it looks like she’ll stay out of the public eye for several weeks while she recovers.
Prince William cancelled his apperance at a charity event – the British Military Tournament at Earl’s Court last night – to spend the evening with his sick wife.
A spokesperson for St James’ Palace said: “The Duke of Cambridge will no longer attend the British Military Tournament at Earl’s Court this evening, but will spend Sunday privately with the Duchess instead.
“It is well known that hyperemesis gravidarum often recurs and, until further notice, to allow the Duchess a degree of privacy during her pregnancy, we do not intend to offer regular condition checks or advise of routine developments associated with it.”
The royal couple were due to attend the London premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on Wednesday, but this looks unlikely given Kate’s current condition.
The Prince attended a charity gala at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday night, his first pulic apprearance since Kate’s pregnancy was announced last week. He is said to have joked that “morning sickness should be renamed” given Kate’s day-long suffering with it.
She’s resting up at Kensington Palace until further notice. Get well soon, Kate! RM
