Kate Middleton leaves hospital, rests in Kensington Palace
LONDON, United Kingdom – Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, left the hospital after being admitted due to morning sickness.
The former Kate Middleton left King Edward VII hospital in London on Thursday morning with her husband Prince William, the BBC reported. Catherine was photographed holding a bouquet of flowers and smiling at the media.
When asked if she was feeling better, she nodded to reporters.
St James Palace said she was headed to Kensington Palace to rest.
"Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank the staff at the hospital for the care and treatment The Duchess has received."
Catherine was admitted to the hospital on Monday with hyperemesis gravidarum or severe morning sickness.
Her condition forced St James Palace to announce her pregnancy, which has not yet passed the 12-week mark.
The Duchess was discharged after news broke that an Australian radio station made a prank call on the hospital, impersonating Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles. A nurse was fooled into giving an update on her condition. The station apologized for the prank but also plugged it as "the biggest royal prank" ever made.
The royal couple’s first child will be the third in line to the throne after Charles and William, irrespective of its gender, following moves by the government to change ancient succession laws giving priority to male children.
News of Catherine’s pregnancy sparked a global media frenzy, complete with speculation on the child’s gender, birth date, name and even face. – Rappler.com
