Catherine was admitted to hospital after falling ill while at her parents’ house in Bucklebury, according to royal reporter Richard Palmer. William drove his wife from her childhood home to hospital, after which she will rest at home.
St. James’s Palace confirmed that Catherine is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, and unfortunately she’s had to cancel three upcoming engagements as a result.
Though the palace won’t confirm a due date for the heir/heiress, it’s believed that the Duchess is between 8 and 12 weeks.
According to the BBC’s Peter Hunt, members of the royal family were only told today that Catherine is expecting, a move consistent with TRH’s engagement announcement back in November 2010. Prince Charles and Her Majesty were only informed that morning about the impending nuptials.
Dr. Marcus Setchell, who delivered the Countess of Wessex‘s two children, is looking after Her Royal Highness.
