With a smile on her face, and her husband Prince William at her side, Duchess Catherine is finally able to leaves the King Edward VII Hospital today (December 6, 2012) in London, England where she has spent the past 3 days being treated for acute morning sickness.
Catherine said she was feeling much better as she was discharged from a London hospital on Thursday following four days of treatment for acute morning sickness.
Holding a bouquet of yellow roses and wrapped up in a dark coat and blue scarf to protect against the cold, the former Kate Middleton smiled as she left the private King Edward VII Hospital with her husband.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 30, mouthed “much better” and nodded when she was asked by the waiting international media if her condition had improved, before the couple were driven away by a security team.
Kate will now have a “period of rest” at Kensington Palace in central London where the couple have an apartment, said a statement from their office at St James’s Palace.
“Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank the staff at the hospital for the care and treatment The Duchess has received,” the statement said.
The pregnancy, which was only announced after she went to hospital, is believed to have not yet reached the 12th week. It will be the first child for the couple who married in April 2011.
The baby will be third in line to the British throne following last year’s historic agreement among Commonwealth realms to end the practice of male primogeniture.
