Prince William is putting on a brave face for all of his public appearances, even though Kate Middleton is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum at home. In other words, she’s been dealing with a severe case of acute morning sickness while pregnant with their second baby. It hasn’t been bad enough for hospitalization this time around, which happened when she was first pregnant with Prince George. However, royal sources have revealed that Kate has become incredibly weak from the disease, and that doctors are on-call at Kensington 24/7 in case of any emergency.
Understandably, Will is extremely worried about Kate Middleton and his unborn child, and commented on Kate’s ongoing health issues. Will was met with cheers when he arrived in Oxford yesterday, and he told the public there, “She’s feeling okay, thanks. It’s been a tricky few days. But we’re immensely thrilled. It’s great news, and early days. We’re hoping things just settle down and she feels a bit better. I’m going to look after her now.”
It’s bad enough that even Prince Harry commented on Kate’s health, something he almost never does. He was quoted as telling the press [at the Invictus Games], “In all seriousness, I hope my sister-in-law gets better soon. The last time I saw her, she was okay. Feeling pretty poorly, but I think that’s to be expected.”
Kate might be feeling wretched, but it’s the worry in Will’s tone and voice that is cause for concern. He seemed much more confident last time, even though she was hospitalized. It’s probably grueling for them to deal with this issue again, especially since it’s supposedly at its worst during the first trimester. They just have to be very careful with her health, since there is a possibility – however minor – that she could lose the baby, especially if her health gets significantly worse and/or the disease progresses.
