In the midst of the royal baby joy, the royal couple has had to deal with Kate’s illness and a media frenzy, and a Palace insider reveals that ‘people are anxious’ for Kate.
Announcing a pregnancy should be an exciting and joyful occasion for any young couple, and while Prince William, 30, and his wife Kate Middleton, 30, are clearly delighted to be expecting a baby, their joy has been tainted by Kate’s hospitalization for acute morning sickness. And a new report suggests that Palace insiders are more concerned than they are letting on.
On Dec. 3, Kate and William made the announcement that the world has been waiting for for over a year — they are having a baby in 2013! They made the announcement following Kate’s admittance to the King Edward VII Hospital for hyperemesis gravidarum (HG), which is an acute form of morning sickness, and it can be a rather serious illness.
And according to People, palace officials are worried. “There is real excitement. We’re really chuffed [happy], but obviously people are anxious about the Duchess.” However, even though the family is concerned for Kate, there is one person who won’t be visiting her at the hospital: the Queen!
“She doesn’t normally go because it disrupts the running of the hospital. The Duchess just wants to recover and get out,” says the insider. William, on the other hand, has been visiting Kate every day. And an onlooker said that on Dec. 4: “He looked solemn, very calm and strong,” when entering the hospital.
Here at HollywoodLife.com, we wish Kate a speedy recovery. It is highly unlikely that her baby — or babies — will be affected by this illness.
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Are the Palace officials overreacting, or should they be worried?
