Pregnant Kate Middleton smiled this morning as she left hospital after four days of treatment for severe morning sickness.
The Duchess of Cambridge told reporters outside King Edward VII Hospital in London: “I’m feeling much better, thank you!”
Kate Middleton, 30, was discharged from the King Edward VII Hospital following three nights under observation and will now head to Kensington Palace for a period of rest, St James’s Palace said.
She emerged from the private hospital looking relaxed, carrying a bouquet of yellow flowers and giving a brief smile to the waiting press before being driven away with her husband Prince William.
Kate Middleton, who is less than 12 weeks pregnant, was wrapped up against the cold in a coat and scarf, and the royal couple will now spend time at their London home to allow for the Duchess to recuperate.
She was admitted on Monday after developing the condition known as hyperemesis gravidarum, and was suffering from the effects of dehydration.
For medical staff to allow Kate Middleton to go home, her severe vomiting must be under control and they are likely to have given her anti-sickness medication.
A St James’s Palace spokesman said: “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.”
Kate Middleton looked immaculate today, wearing a navy coat and knee high low-heeled black suede boots.
Prince William, 30, had arrived at the hospital a few minutes earlier in a green Land Rover, dressed in a light blue jumper, checked shirt, dark jeans and suede shoes.
Yesterday Kate was also visited by her sister, Pippa Middleton, and brother James, at 3:45 p.m. They were followed by Carole Middleton who arrived at the hospital to see her elder daughter at 7:30 p.m.
