She’s Out and Smiling: Pregnant Kate Middleton Released From Hospital [FIRST PHOTOS]
The news is out and the Duchess of Cambridge looks all the more lively. After staying four days in the hospital after she fell ill because of severe morning sickness, Kate Middleton looked glowing on a fine morning.
The 30-year-old Duchess looked happy as she held on a bouquet of yellow roses. Seemingly more relaxed, the Duchess of Cambridge even briefly waved and posed for photographers who were waiting for her outside the hospital.
Wearing a dark coat paired with a light blue scarf and winter boots, Kate looked refreshed. The Duke of Cambridge who made sure he is by his wife's side throughout her confinement also beamed with smile.
William was casually dressed in a blue sweatshirt over a plaid button-down. He paired it with jeans and brown loafers. The royal couple was photographed outside the hospital entrance while they were waiting for their car.
Before the Duchess of Cambridge was discharged from the hospital, her sister Pippa Middleton and brother James were there to check on her health. Kate's mother, Carole was also present in three consecutive nights to make sure her daughter was alright.
All of the Royal household and the Middleton's expressed their delight with Kate and Wills' upcoming bundle of joy. Apart from that, the Church of England also published their special prayer for the Duke of Duchess of Cambridge.
