Kate Middleton is said to be feeling better after her second day in the hospital with acute morning sickness, according to a St. James’ Palace spokesperson Tuesday (Dec. 4).
“The Duchess of Cambridge is continuing to feel better,” the statement reads. “She and the Duke are immensely grateful for the good wishes they have received. She will remain in hospital at present and will continue to be treated for hyperemesis gravidarum.”
Per the Daily Mail, Prince William was in good spirits upon leaving his wife at King Edward VII hospital. Sources add that the Duchess of Cambridge is “responding well to treatment” and there’s “no cause for alarm.”
Kate, 30, is believed to be less than 12 weeks pregnant and is expected to remain in the hospital for several more days. She is reportedly on an IV drip and taking medicine for severe nausea and vomiting.
Will and Kate reportedly did not want to make the pregnancy announcement until Christmas, but due to Kate’s hospitalization, they were forced to make a statement Monday. The Queen had not even been told until then.
“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby,” the palace says in the statement. “The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news.”
