Pregnant Kate Middleton Glows at BBC Sports Ceremony

by at . Comments

Last night marked Kate Middleton's first public appearance since being hospitalized with morning sickness this month - and it was a TV appearance at that!

The glowing Duchess of Cambridge, in a green Alexander McQueen dress, was on hand to give out awards at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year ceremony.

No real sign of a baby bump yet from Kate, but her very appearance is a hopeful sign that the ailing, expecting 30-year-old is getting better in recent days.

It also marked her first appearance since the death of Jacintha Saldanha.

The 46-year-old nurse killed herself following the royal prank phone call scandal, an event that was said to have deeply saddened the pregnant Duchess.

In any case, Middleton is feeling much better than even 72 hours ago.

On Thursday, Prince William attended the UK premiere of The Hobbit solo. That was apparently too long for her, but she made her return to the public eye Sunday.

“While the Duchess does not feel ready to attend a four-hour engagement she is keen to show her support to the UK’s sportsmen and women," said a royal source.

"This prestigious event caps a momentous year for British sport.”

Kate Middleton, who attended several events during the 2012 London Olympics, joined former LA Galaxy soccer star David Beckham to hand out awards.

We're glad she's feeling better - and she looks great!
