The pregnant Kate Middleton is “feeling better” after spending her second day hospitalized by severe morning sickness, but remains there at this time.
Prince William, who reportedly spent hours with her yesterday, is “immensely grateful for the good wishes they have received,” a spokesman added.
Her parents, Michael and Carole, are reportedly “elated” about William getting Kate Middleton pregnant, but understandably worried about her condition.
Carole Middleton and Kate’s sister, Pippa Middleton, also visited the queasy Duchess Tuesday.
The Middletons found out Kate was expecting over the weekend when she began vomiting violently and a worried William drove her home to London.
Queen Elizabeth II found out later Monday after William and Kate raced to the hospital, where the stricken princess was diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum, or HG.
The malady impacts one in 50 expectant moms and can make pregnancy torture, but is not harmful to the baby; some speculate Kate may be expecting twins.
Citing royal sources, the Daily Mail reported the Duchess is holding her own “but her symptoms of severe vomiting may last for much of her pregnancy.”
Kate, who is 30 and believed to be about 12 weeks pregnant, is expected to remain in the hospital for several more days followed by a “period of rest” at home.
She is reportedly on an IV drip to combat her dehydration and taking pills to stop the nausea.
Here's wishing the lovely Duchess the best under the difficult physical circumstances, along with our congratulations on the forthcoming royal baby in 2013!
