Kate Middleton Leaves Hospital, Looks Blooming in New Early Pregnancy Photos [SLIDESHOW]
Pretty, expecting and blooming, the Duchess of Cambridge is feeling much better after several days in the hospital due to an acute morning sickness ailment.
The Duchess was admitted to Central London's King Edward VII hospital after a weekend of "intense vomiting," where she was diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum, a rare morning sickness ailment that can make early pregnancy extremely difficult. Good news is, Kate is feeling "much better," after she muttered those words upon stepping out of the hospital.
According to studies, Kate's diagnosis happens usually to pregnant women bearing twins, but since the Duchess' is still on her early weeks, it is not possible to tell if she is indeed carrying two royal heirs.
The Duchess was seen clinging to husband, William, while carrying a small bouquet of yellow roses. Because Kate was wearing a dark blue wool coat, her early baby bump seemed unnoticeable. Despite his busy schedule, the Duke was seen spending many hours at the hospital to watch over his dear wife.
Meanwhile, the Duke's father, Prince Charles, is more than ecstatic to be a grandfather soon.
"I'm thrilled, marvelous. It's a very nice thought to become a grandfather in my old age, if I can say so." said the Royal throne's next-in-line to BBC.
