The Royal Bump Watch has officially begun! As you may recall, we learned at the start of this week that Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is pregnant with her first child with husband Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge. The news was announced due to Kate‘s hospitalization with acute morning sickness. We saw photos of Prince Wills visiting his wife in the hospital but Kate has been totally out of sight since her happy news was announced. Earlier today, Kate was released from the hospital after her 4 day/3 night stay and as you can see below, she was all smiles.
With a smile and the briefest of comments that she is feeling “much better,” a fragile-looking Duchess of Cambridge left the hospital Thursday morning. An expectant Kate walked out of King Edward VII hospital with husband William at around 10:45 a.m. Just before she stepped into her waiting car, Kate – in a navy checked overcoat and light blue scarf and clutching a bouquet of yellow roses – softly answered questions from the ranks of media crews about how she was doing. She and William then headed to their cottage home in the grounds of Kensington Palace where she will continue to rest … In a short statement released by their spokesman as she left, the couple thanked the hospital for her care. “The Duchess of Cambridge has been discharged from the King Edward VII Hospital and will now head to Kensington Palace for a period of rest,” the statement read. “Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank the staff at the hospital for the care and treatment The Duchess has received.” William has been at the hospital every day throughout his wife’s stay. On Wednesday, she had a visit from her sister Pippa, 29, brother James, 25, and mother Carole. At an event on Thursday morning, Prince Charles told reporters, “I’m very glad my daughter-in-law is getting better, thank goodness.”
Yay! It’s so great to see Kate looking so happy and so well. I’ve been trying not to think too much about the poor girl puking her guts out in the hospital. I think it’s hilarious that Kate wore a thick coat, a long scarf and she carried a bouquet of flowers in order to (inadvertently?) cover up her tiny baby bump. I’m sure we’ll get a better look at her tummy soon but for now, methinks Kate will be spending some time out of sight, recovering in bed. But, she’s out of the hospital … the Royal Bump Watch is officially on.
