Kate (30) left the King Edward VII Hospital this morning clutching a bunch of flowers, getting into a waiting car with her husband.
The pregnant Duchess of Cambridge was discharged from hospital this morning after a three night stay receiving treatment for acute morning sickness.
The Duke and Duchess had revealed Kate’s pregnancy on Monday after she was admitted to the King Edward VII Hospital.
Asked about her condition by the waiting press outside, she said,
“I’m feeling much better, thank you.”
Kate, who is less than 12 weeks’ pregnant, was wrapped warmly up against the London cold in a coat and scarf.
She will now head to Kensington Palace for a period of rest, St James’s Palace said.
The royal couple had said they are ‘immensely grateful’ for the good wishes they have received since her highly anticipated pregnancy was made public.
William has been at his wife’s bedside every day she has been in hospital, and the Duchess has also received visits from sister Pippa and her mother Carole.
The Duchess is likely to have been on a drip so she can receive fluids intravenously to combat the effects of dehydration caused by the condition known as hyperemesis gravidarum.
Kate was admitted to hospital on Monday after developing the condition that can leave patients feeling tired, dizzy and suffering from headaches – all signs of dehydration. But she responded well to treatment and looked well and happy this morning, smiling at photographers as she left the hospital before 11am (GMT) Thursday morning.
All Kate’s engagements for this week and next have been cancelled to allow her to get the rest she will need after being discharged.
