In early September, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William announced they’re expecting a third child.
There hadn’t been much revelations regarding the news other than a couple of reports suggesting that the Duchess is experiencing morning sickness. Rumors revealed that the baby might come sooner than expected. However, what’s not speculation is The Duchess glorious baby bump on show as she hosted an event at The Buckingham Palace, back to performing Royal duties.
“The Queen and members of both families are delighted,” read the official statement from the Royal Family, which is how the couple officially told the world their happy news, reports revealed.
In a speech, William thanked everyone for what they’d done and said it was Kate “who first realized that all three of us were working on mental health in our individual areas of focus. She had seen that at the core of adult issues like addiction and family breakdown, unresolved childhood mental health issues were often part of the problem.”
Harry said it was time to take the awareness to the next stage and take it into “new partnerships to support better conversations in schools and workplaces.”
This news diverts the spotlight from Price Harry who had been in the news for a while regarding his relationship with Suits actor Meghan Markle after they held hands at The Invictus Games.
Along with her husband, the Duchess seemed in high spirits and took time to talk to the attendees. Guests praised the royal for attending despite her condition with Dr Nicola Byrom, of charity Student Minds, added:
“She’s amazing. What a fighter that she’s here.”
The royal mom walked into The White Drawing Room with William and Harry in a pretty blue Temperley London dress, which showed off a hint of a baby bump.
The event marked Kate‘s first public outing since August 30, when she and the royal brothers marked the 20th anniversary of the death of Princess Diana. Only a few days after that, it was announced that she is pregnant, and with that came news she was suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, an extreme form of morning sickness that forced her to cancel her public duties.
The palace is likely to confirm Kate’s due date soon, once she passes the 12-week date at which the risk of miscarriage is reduced. While she may appear at some events, there is no indication she is well enough to resume full royal duties.
