Duchess Kate released from hospital, says she’s “feeling much better”

Aw. Duchess Kate was finally released from the hospital earlier today in London. Prince William came to pick her up, and she was able to walk out of the hospital on her own (if this was an American hospital, she probably would have been forced to sit in a wheelchair until she was outside of the hospital). She and William stopped outside of the hospital and let everyone get their photos and they even answered a few questions from the press. She told them, “I’m feeling much better, thank you.”

I could analyze their body language all day! Of course, I also saw the video of Kate’s hospital exit, so I’m judging these pics because I’ve also seen them in motion. My impression is that Kate is okay, but that she still feels weak and rather barfy. I actually felt a wave of sympathy for her – she looks like she hasn’t had much sleep and like her equilibrium is off. She made a point to use the railing to steady herself as she walked down the stairs, and William briefly put his arm around her, probably to steady her and probably just a nice show of concern. It would have been nice to see William be more physical with her, but there’s probably a reason why he wasn’t, like, clutching her. One, everyone wants to see for themselves that Kate is alright and that she can walk by herself. Two, I would imagine that William didn’t want to jostle her, lest she barf on him (again?).

The Palace announced that Kate will be staying at Kensington Palace for now so that she can get some sustained rest. The official statement: “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. Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank the staff at the hospital for the care and treatment The Duchess has received.”

Meanwhile, TMZ reports that Kate and William are already being “showered” with baby gifts, mostly from baby-centric companies that want Kate and Will to use their products. Some the gifts include (per TMZ): kiddy learning programs from MyTalkingToddler.com; morning sickness relief from a company called One Step Ahead; and clothes and products from 2 high end L.A. baby boutiques including Bel Bambini (they sent Kate a $2,300 gift basket which included a new Bugaboo Cameleon 3 stroller worth $978, a $265 Fendi layette set, $275 Dior Booties and more.

    You know… For once I’m more fascinated by Wills hair condition here.

  2. Sisi says:

    William has that jumper in every color of the rainbow, doesn’t he

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      Yes, and isn’t it cute (and rather sad) that the two of them have been color-coordinated for this occasion?! Poor Kate, she can’t just leave the hospital–she has to be certain that her leaving provides a proper photo for the Royal archives.

  3. LeslieM says:

    She always looks so pretty and put together even now after being so sick. I love her outfit and hair in these pictures and the flowers are gorgeous.

  4. LucyS says:

    She looks really tired. I remember my first trimester all I wanted to do was sleep. I can’t imagine wanting to sleep like that all the time and still need to barf every ten minutes. Hopefully, she’s done with IVs for now.

  5. Esmom says:

    Wow, I can’t imagine what it would be like to come out of the hospital still feeling like crap AND have to be all dolled up for the cameras.

    I bet she wishes she could just shuffle out of there in slippers and flannel pj pants. I know I would.

  6. TheEntrepreneursWife says:

    Would it be inappropriate for me to say that I WANT HER COAT?!

  7. mln76 says:

    I feel bad that she even has to hold the flowers because I imagine they might make her nauseous. I am wondering if that is the reason why she is holding them at arms length.

  8. TorontoE says:

    I feel sorry for her. Imagine feeling that gross and you can’t leave the hospital in giant track pants and zero makeup like a normal person. Pantyhose and barfiness don’t mixed.

    • Liv says:

      Yeah, there probably were hair and makeup sylists. I would had thrown up on them ;-)

      But can’t they ever be more casual? What’s up with her wearing sneakers and jeans? That would be allowed, wouldn’t it?

      • Esmom says:

        Diana used to dress down when she was “out in the field” for her charity work. You’d think leaving the hospital would qualify for a “dress down” occasion.

        Although I’m guessing the palace likes to keep tight control of every “pregnant duchess” photo, partly to reassure the public that she and baby are doing fine? Seems like old protocol is still in play.

      • Alexandra Bananarama says:

        Liv If you owned that coat, scarf, and boot combo wouldn’t you want to be seen in it too? I think she’s wearing a comfy slip underneath anyways.

      • Liv says:

        That’s not the point. I wasn’t saying “Don’t ever wear this outfit” ;-)

        My question was if she has to dress up like this.

        If I’m sick and leaving the hospital to rest at home I’d go out in sweatpants. Now I wouldn’t do that in her shoes with the press being around and everything. But I wondered why she doesn’t wear jeans or something. Something more comfy.

      • Alexandra Bananarama says:

        Liv we got our wires crossed. I never thought you said never wear this outfit either.

        I just meant instead of exiting in sweats with the photogs she took the better looking route of looking put together on the outside, but under the coat she’s dressed super comfy. We just can’t see it.

        I think we’re in agreement that after a hospital stay comfy clothes are ideal:-)

      • Liv says:

        Ah, I didn’t get your last point! But I stay with what I said – I don’t think a pantyhose is comfortable ;-) Like Esmom said, they are eventually “forced” to dress up.

        William is also slightly more chic than the days before.

      • Honeybee says:

        Maybe its just me but I find pantyhose and tights way more comfortable than jeans, epecially the skinny jeans Kate normally wears, much more comfortable around the waist.

  9. Amelia says:

    Ooh . . . I’d take the Dior baby booties.
    I won’t be in need of them for 10 years or so, but – always a good investment :)
    I actually feel quite sorry for her now. By all accounts the entire left side of the street is swarming with press (according to a friend who happens to drive down that road on the way to work).
    I’d hate to have that kind of media speculation surrounding every aspect of my life. We’ve got the 24 hour news channel on in our staff loungue, and I could seriously PUNCH the BBC royal correspondent. Every blinking word she says is in a ridiculously over-serious voice.

  10. the original bellaluna says:

    That’s because in the US the hospitals don’t want the liability of you falling down or passing out when they discharge you at the earliest possible moment. (Gotta avoid those lawsuits and keep those costs down, ya know?)

    I feel bad for her. She may be feeling a little better due to the hydration and electrolytes she received, but she certainly doesn’t look well.

  11. Merritt says:

    She looks exhausted, which is understandable. Hopefully she won’t have too many hospitalizations ahead of her.

    I do love that coat.

  12. Ri says:

    She doesn’t look that well to me. She must have looked even worse few days ago.

  13. Christina says:

    Would it be awful for me to say that in one way I think Waity looks BETTER here than usual?

    Yes, it’s clear the poor thing isn’t well at all, but she actually looks sweeter and prettier in these pics than when she’s got the usual heavy black eyeliner/big hair thing going on.

  14. JulieM says:

    Yes, she looks a little worn out. I really do not respect her but I do hope she is past the worst and has a healthy baby. Now, seven months of bed rest, followed by twenty years of light “work”.

  15. booboocita says:

    And the boots have low heels. That convinces me more than anything that she’s still quite unsteady on her feet.

    • Boo says:

      Exactly. I saw those flats and thought, wow, she must feel like shit and be unsteady, too.

      I feel bad for her, too. I had morning sickness with all three kids, but the first was the worst…just all day long nausea. I was so hungry but could not eat. I remember sitting down over breakfast and just crying because I couldn’t eat. I know some women love being pregnant, but I found it to be pretty terrible in lots of ways. The gentle kicking was nice, though (before it got crowded in there!).

  16. Rianic says:

    I think this may be the most natural we’ve seen them in a long time.

    Also, the weight in her face looks good on her – I gained in my face w pregnancy, too.

  17. lem says:

    I saw the video as well and the poor girl looked awful. The bags under her eyes makes me think this hospital stay has been horrible. I can’t imagine how awful she feels.

  18. LadyMTL says:

    I’ve never been pregnant so the closest I can come to saying “I know what that feels like” is with my last bout of stomach flu, hahaha. Seriously though, I wouldn’t be surprised if she is weak and wobbly, who wouldn’t be? Still, she looks good…and am I the only one who finds it really cute that her scarf and his sweater match?

  19. Simple Red says:

    Glad to see she is ok but I hope the media in UK will take it easy and not hound her even worse.. A woman needs to be relaxed not stressed during her pregnancy…
    Best of Luck during Ur pregnancy Royal Family :)

  20. shewolf says:

    Id have a permanently terrified look on my face if I was expecting twins.

  21. GoodCapon says:

    Not that it really matters Kaiser, but we must’ve been watching different videos. The one I saw was them leaving the hospital and they didn’t really answer any questions. They just did a photo op for a few seconds then hopped on to their waiting car.

    When the Palace says ‘period of rest’ they actually meant 8-9 months. ;) This pregnancy just gave Kate a legitimate reason not to work.

    I’m fervently praying to the gods that one of the royal brides gets pregnant to deflect attention away from this couple. Zara? Stephanie? ANYONE? Heck, I’d go crazy if Albert and Charlene manage to find themselves in the same bed and procreate!

    • tmbg says:

      It would be nice. I have nothing against Kate and don’t mind reading something here and there, but it’s already getting out of control. People (both their site and magazine) now has a new royal to obsess over (they were absolutely insane when it came to Diana) and are posting about Kate’s every move, I go to my Yahoo page’s national news and Kate’s on there, I turned on the TV last night and there’s news about Kate, etc., etc. This is madness. Not to be a Chris Crocker, but leave Kate alone! :P

      Maybe one of Fergie’s daughters will get pregnant out of wedlock! Just kidding.

      • LAK says:

        If Fergie’s daughters did that, they would be torn to shreds as poster children for feckless single motherhood…

        And that would be for starters because the media/public refuses to post a positive story on the girls.

        I actually read a story in a national paper that begun with the sentence, ‘The Gruesome twosome…..’ and went on to shred them for whatever imagined offence the journalist thought they had committed.

      • Suze says:

        The only thing that might deflect some attention is if Charlene over in Monaco becomes pregnant.

        Now that I think of it, that would probably just magnify the attention to crazed levels on both fronts.

  22. The Original Mia says:

    I actually thought this was the best she’s looked in a long time. Loved the coat, her hair and the flat boots.

    Let’s hope that’s the last we see of her for a very long time & that she rests and enjoys the rest of her pregnancy out of the limelight.

  23. Cathy says:

    I like the coat. I also like the fact that she’s wearing low heels. Hope she feels better soon.

  24. dunkin says:

    Work? The Middleton dictionary ends with the word Wait followed shortly by Wedding didn’t you know!!!

  25. LadyLupton says:

    It’s got to be horrible to get photographed coming out of hospital.

    Having said that, I’ve just been through pram-hell and would LOVE for bugaboo to send me a free chameleon 3.

  26. Devon says:

    The poor thing. She looks exhausted and puffy. I understand the media’s and public’s fascination of them but I do really think it’s wrong they’ve been camped outside her hospital. I know I’m a bit hypocritical in saying that since I’ve looked at the photos but I would have preferred there not to be photos to look at.

  27. bettyrose says:

    I’m actually starting to feel kind of bad for her. I mean, no matter how long she pursued this life, one can’t really know the feeling of having your uterus be an international news story until it happens.

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      Although, i believe she absolutely did not have HG if she’s out now and well enough to walk down stairs she will be a mess for the pregnancy.

      She just has morning sickness, but she will probably feel like she has the flu for the next few weeks. Carrying and raising a child is rough. Here is were the line is drawn
      She will have the easiest pregnancy after the morning sickness. No work, no worrying about hospital bills, plenty of nannies.

      I just can’t find any pity for this girl. She’s having a normal pregnancy, symptom-wise. If she had to go to work feeling ill i would feel for her.

      Hopefully she will find a cause with march of dimes or another baby related charity since it will be more relatable to her.

      I like her outfit. I said something favorable.

      • kay says:

        i had hg for part of my first and ALL of my second pregnancy. on average i would be in hospital for 3 days. that is how long it took for the iv meds to rehydrate my body and for the anti nausea meds to work.
        as someone who actually experienced hg, i assure you that she was in for long enough to get the help to get back on her feet.
        chances are very high she will be back in sooner than later.
        she is not experiencing a “normal pregnancy”. normal first trimester morning sickness does not land women in the hosptial. hg does.

      • Belle says:

        Um… normal first trimester morning sickness CAN indeed land someone in the hospital. ‘Normal’ morning sickness can vary a lot, and it can be quite bad, even if not considered to be HG. If you are not keeping anything down for more than just a couple of days, you can become dehydrated, requiring IV fluids, and usually medication. The need for fluids and medication in the first trimester does not automatically mean HG. I’m not trying to argue that she does not have HG, just suggesting that it is possible to require some hospital care for ‘normal’ morning sickness. If every pregnant woman who went into the hospital for IV fluids and medication was diagnosed with HG, then it would be A LOT more common.

      • Alexandra Bananarama says:

        Ugh. I’m almost sick of explaining myself on this one.
        Yes, if you’re dehydrated you should have an iv. And yes if you have hg you almost always need a hospital stay. I just doubt it is hg because that diagnosis can be easily exaggerated. This also wouldn’t be the 1st time things were stretched to gain sympathy for the mother to be.

        Also, everyone’s pain tolerance is different. What is normal morning sickness might be hard for me and easy for others.

        I doubt it was true hg and I believe that her health insurance is awesome so while she’s carrying the future heir she will be coddled in a prepare and treat for the worst.

      • kay says:

        belle, i have never heard of any woman with normal morning sickness landing in hospital. i have friends who suffered varying degrees of morning sickness in their respective pregnancies and none required i.v., or hospitalization. here in canada they get put on diclectin if the sickness is bad enough.
        as far as i know if a woman is so ill with pregnancy sickness she requires i.v and meds, she has hg.

        alexandra: pain tolerance has zero to do with the body’s ability to function adequately when one is vomitting and then dry heaving every 10 to 15 minutes, 24 hours a day…day after day. without treatment women and babies can, and do, die from hg. a medical diagnosis has no relation to ones personal pain threshold.

        ladies: does anyone know of someone who required hospitalization (e.r. pit stop or stay in) for pregnancy sickness (it isn’t technically morning sickness if it is occurring all day every day all the time) but was not diagnosed with hg?

        fwiw: i have a ridiculously high pain threshold. it had no factoring in to my life when i was crawling to the kitchen (literally) and using the cupboards and counters to pull myself upright in order to make food for my son and niece, because i had no energy to walk. once i got a picc line in and was wearing the iv pump in a fanny pack 24-7, i was able to function “normally” for the last bit of pregnancy. even then i still found myself back in hospital again at least once a week for a 3 day stay. i begged them to induce me for the last 2 months because even on permanent i.v., cancer meds, gravol, and liquid food the unrelenting nausea did NOT fully stop until hours after the little one finally arrived. zero to do with pain tolerance. and i have had doctors comment on my tolerance levels.

      • Belle says:

        Yes! I know people who were very ill with ‘morning’ sickness, especially in the first trimester, who had to go in (one friend went in several times) for IV fluids, and were on medication… who did NOT have HG. A good friend of mine needed a letter from her doctor because she was missing so much work, and in the letter, the doctor stated she had HG. He had never mentioned that to her… at all. She doesn’t think she had HG, but that her doctor just stretched her nasty morning sickness to the HG diagnosis because it would sound like a ‘better’ excuse for having to miss work. So, it is possible to have really nasty nausea and vomiting in pregnancy and not have HG. Also, some hospitals and/or doctors may require you to be admitted to the hospital to receive IV fluids, and others allow treatment without actual ‘admission’ into the hospital.

      • Belle says:

        Just wanted to add that I am in the US, and am not familiar with the Canadian healthcare system. Sometimes insurance requires a certain diagnosis in order to pay for a specific treatment. I’ve worked in a doctor’s office… and sometimes it was a matter of picking the ‘right’ diagnosis for treatment to be covered. Doctors deal with that all of the time. Maybe in Canada, the system requires an HG diagnosis in order to treat sickness in pregnancy with IV fluids and medication?

      • EllieK says:

        I have no doubt that she had HG. I’m sure that she and the royal family did not want to disclose her pregnancy until after she passed the 1st trimester. They may have been hoping for a Christmas announcement. She must have been feeling absolutely terrible, with intractable nausea and vomiting, to be admitted to the hospital. For anything less, she could have had care delivered at home. (I’m sure that the Duchess has medical doctors who would provide housecalls.) Most hospital stays for HG are short — rarely they can be lengthy if the patient does not respond to oral antinausea medication and is not able to eat.

      • LAK says:

        @EllieK – Initial reports said the royal family found out when she checked into the hospital or just before that.

        Nothing to do with them as far as keeping the pregnancy a secret.

        William likes to keep his life away from the Palace. i wish he didn’t because in situations like this, Kate wouldn’t have been subjected to this media circus until she was good and ready.

      • Suze says:

        I’ll believe the diagnosis because there is no reason not to. The reasons other women might land in the hospital with severe morning sickness/but not-HG really don’t apply here. They don’t need to stretch a diagnosis to get her admitted or covered under insurance or obtain a note to keep her off work.

        I have no doubt she was and still is pretty sick. She looks pretty shaky, frankly, like she may just stagger back to the palace to get hooked right back up to an IV.

      • Belle says:

        @Suze… I personally don’t think it matters if she has HG or just bad morning sickness. I feel terrible for her because she is pregnant, miserably sick and needing treatment, and I know how that feels… horrible, as in PLEASE KILL ME NOW horrible. The points I made about doctors stretching a diagnosis to HG when necessary, to garner appropriate treatment or understanding for sickness in pregnancy, I believe could apply to Kate. Sadly, many people assume their own experience with something is the norm… or are quick to trivialize something they assume ‘all pregnant women’ have to deal with. Had Kate gone into the hospital because of ‘morning sickness’ I believe there would be much less sympathy and a great deal of ridicule. A lot of women rolling their eyes and saying ‘when I was sick while pregnant, I didn’t have the luxury of staying in the hospital, I had to actually work for a living!’ Not great PR, whether it is fair or not… and the royals do care about their PR. The HG diagnosis (and subsequent discussion about it), as I’ve posted before, offers Kate some cover… whether she has HG, or just really bad morning sickness… either of which are miserable and warrant treatment.

    • Raven says:

      Alexandra, some of us prefer to believe the person with the MD actually treating the patient.

      For those of you who have actually had HG, or who know the palace, I wonder if she’s staying there to be closer to the hospital in an emergency and to be monitored with her husband away. It seems like it would be possible to have any future medical treatment for HG at the palace. An IV could certainly be done at home with a nurse present at all times. I’m thinking that it would be less stressful than all the press at the hospital, as long as she is responding to treatment.

  28. Meerkat says:

    Looks perfectly okay to me. Managed to put on some slap and get her hair done, not to mention tights etc. Why not jeans or a track suit? And anybody who thinks she and Pippa don’t love the attention is deluded.

    • BonnyLass says:

      I think you’re spot on. Am I that easily fooled? I don’t think so. I tend to believe you over people who use the media to their advantage.

      I do not like this camera-hog/clothes horse and I definitely not like that spoiled tyrant William. Goes to show what kind of leader he’ll be. He saw a manipulative gold digging stalker doing a soft strip tease for his benefit. We’re sentenced to that for a Queen… have mercy on us…Didn’t someone have the sense to push for someone more appropriate like Princess Madeleine of Sweden for one.

      Something also tells me, William pushed for it out of rebellion… Not out of love but becuz he was told he couldn’t. Happens in other family circles. I can’t begin to tell you how many people have an in-law they inherited becuz someone did’t listen to the entire family’s advice to not marry that person. My Uncle was one… we have paid our dues over and over again for his marriage. (The more he was warned don’t marry, the more he protected that woman. He’s realizing now though)… oh to turn back time to 1974.

  29. Suzy says:

    I feel bad for her-if that were me, I’d come out of the hospital is schlumpy sweats, a tshirt & Uggs, but she has to get all dolled up for the cameras.

  30. Dani says:

    She looks drained. Love her hair though and that coat!!! (Calvin Klein has almost an exact one, so does J.Crew) She looks prettier with a fuller face.

  31. tmbg says:

    She looks completely worn out. I hope she goes home, sleeps undisturbed, manages to eat a little something and feels somewhat better. Maybe snuggling with Lupo will be good medicine for her. :) And she should have been able to walk out of there wearing comfy jeans and not felt like she had to dress up! Such is life in the spotlight, I guess.

    I wonder if they can use those anti-nausea drugs they give to cancer patients on pregnant women? The only way my MIL was able to complete her treatment was because of those. She was ready to give up before they gave her the right one.

    • kay says:

      they do use cancer drugs. i was on zofran often, in conjunction with the i.v. gravol, and there was a third one which i cannot recall the name of.
      i was terrified it would harm the baby, but one of the ob/gyn’s on call gave me a scare about what could happen if i didn’t stop throwing up so i gave up and in.
      he turned out fine. :)

  32. Lucky Charm says:

    She looks like she can’t wait to get home & put on some flannel pants & t-shirt and go right to bed, poor thing. She does look really tired, but her hair & makeup look great here, she should wear it like that more often.

    And I just have to say, I have serious boot & coat envy of her (and Angelina Jolie). I want what she’s wearing! :)

  33. skuddles says:

    Poor Kate – nothing worse than feeling barfy all the time.

  34. apsutter says:

    She looks pretty but you can tell she’s been sick and feeling awful and hasn’t been sleeping much. I like when Wills is more affectionate towards her too. Some people think he’s cold and distant but I get the feeling they actually have a very affectionate relationship in reality. I love whenever the candid pics of them come out because they always look much more intimate.

  35. Xantha says:

    Those companies realize that the British Royal Family in general don’t accept freebies right? They’re just gonna be sent back.

    And she does look tired. I honestly don’t envy her right now what with the world’s media just waiting for her to start showing and stuff.

  36. The Original Denise says:

    She will have the absolute best care that is available; not so much so regular mums on the NHS waiting list. More largesse for people who don’t need it. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

  37. DianeP says:

    Feel better, Kate! I love her hair this way and her outfit.

  38. Argirl says:

    I’m just surprised she’s walking ahead of William!

  39. Belle says:

    Whether she has HG, or just some nasty ‘regular’ morning sickness, I hope she feels better… and wish her well.

    From the posts on this article it does seem the sympathy tide has turned her way!

  40. Reece says:

    Did they really need her in hair, makeup and that ridic rock on her hand to leave the hospital? She’s feeling better and leaving the hospital who cares if she’s wearing that thing. Who is it for?
    Maybe I’m just nitpicking.

    • LAK says:

      The hair/make up is a self imposed thing for Kate. She used to do the same before exiting nightclubs so she would look good in the photos.

      Her appearance, if she thinks she’s going to be photographed, is the one thing she’s super disciplined about.

      I am not saying this to be mean or critical. It’s her thing.

    • Belle says:

      I was thinking the same thing, seems a bit over-dressed for the occasion. But my guess would be it is good PR. Everyone says the same thing… LOL ‘She looks pretty, but tired… poor thing! Oh, and I want her coat and boots!’ I’m guessing we are going to hear a lot about ‘The always fashionable Duchess enchanting well-wishers, despite being terribly ill’.

      Full disclosure: I too, think she looks pretty but tired…. and I want her coat and boots! (;

      • Reece says:

        Yeah I do like her coat. The hair is simple and nice. I hope she wears like that more often. Sorry, those boots are fug. :) In fact they look like the ones she wears in the old pics of her walking down the street. Before the wedding.

        That’s why I was wondering why she is in hair and makeup now because she can’t possibly feel that great. You’re never 100% leaving the hospital just not hospital sick. Myself, I’d be more focused on not vomiting on the drive back to KP.

      • Belle says:

        Ha… I would be most worried about the drive as well! I get motion sick if I’m not the one driving… and add being pregnant and sick… UGH. Nope, wouldn’t care at all about my hair and make-up. Of course I wouldn’t want to be photographed that way! ;)

        Maybe I just like the boots because I’m in desperate need of a decent pair of tall, low/no heeled, black, casual, comfy boots right now…

    • Esti says:

      That “ridic rock”? You mean her engagement ring? Most women I know never take off their ring unless they’re showering or doing something that might damage it. She might have taken it off while actually in a hospital bed, but why would she leave it off while fully dressed and walking out of the hospital? “Who it’s for” is probably: Kate, and her husband, because that’s why you wear wedding rings.

  41. Tiffany says:

    So it took a severe case of morning sickness for her to wear her hair away from her face. I’ll take it.

  42. Andrea says:

    Don’t they check on you a lot in the hospital? Maybe that’s why she is tired. I wouldn’t want disturbed sleep either. :/ I have only been in the ER once and since I had no medical insurance(US), I was given my ivs and then once I could hold down water (had a virus and couldn’t stop barfing) I was pushed out the door. now I am in canada. Yayy for universal healthcare!

  43. Taylor says:

    I don’t respect this woman one bit. She has done everything she possibly can not to do work of any type. And she has done little charity work. However, you can tell in her face she looks a tad “green.” She probably shouldn’t have left the hospital so soon, if she was as sick as they say. And she probably shouldn’t be so dressed up for someone who was as sick as they say she was.

    There is something really fishy about all of this. I don’t believe anything that they say. William is a manipulative operator and the world knows everything (and has seen everything) about Waity.

  45. PoliteTeaSipper says:

    I had HG with my pregnancy and I would have preferred death. They also turned me around and got me the heck out of there because my insurance sucked and wouldn’t pay for treatment; my SO drove me home with my head in a bag. I cannot feel anything but sympathy for anyone who has any kind of morning sickness. It is pure misery and I will never be pregnant again.

  46. Emjay says:

    I feel bad for her. She looks like she is forcing the smiles and all she really wants is to just go home.

  47. Tina says:

    I can’t help but think that her body would handle pregnancy a teeny bit better if she was within a normal weight range for her body type.

  48. Gemma says:

    I understand that pregnancy should be an exciting time but… I just don’t care about these two. They just irk me and I’m tired of seeing their faces already.

  49. Elise says:

    Congratulations to William and Kate. It’s good that she’s OK now. I like these pictures of Kate, she looks more natural. It reminds me of her earlier pictures during university and after.

  50. Ana says:

    She looks very pleased with herself. I wonder how much she is smiling since that poor innocent nurse died?

    Did you get positive PR from it all, did you Kate?

    All I can say is, the holiday in France (instead of working at the Olympics) was a huge success! Hooray for the new generations of the British monarchy. Great, honest, hard-working people full of charity and good will. Always keeping up appearances.
