Oh no! Just when it was reported that Kate Middleton was feeling better and would be resuming her royal duties, the pregnant Duchess was forced to cancel yet another appearance due to her severe nausea. So sad.
Kate Middleton, 32, is once again experiencing hyperemesis gravidarum during her second pregnancy. Sadly, it has been the reason behind her cancelling multiple different appearances as part of her royal duties. Hopefully the Duchess of Cambridge will be feeling well again soon.
Kate Middleton Cancels Another Appearance, Still ‘Unwell’ From Pregnancy
On Wednesday, Oct. 1, the expectant mom was expected to make her first appearance at the opening of the Clore Art Room at London’s Barlby Primary School, People reports. This would have been Kate’s first public appearance since the exciting news that she was pregnant again was shared with the world.
Sadly, it appears that appearance won’t be happening.
“I am truly sorry that I cannot be with you all today as you celebrate this milestone,” Kate wrote in a statement, expressing her regret for falling under the weather once again. “My sincere apologies for not being able to join you, but I hope that I will have an opportunity to visit Barlby and see the Clore Art Room soon.”
How sad. Kate, we’re rooting for you to get back on your feet again soon!
Kate Still Expected To Return To Royal Duties Very Soon
Even though Kate’s illness appears to be touch-and-go at this point, the royals are hopeful that she will be able to start making appearances as early as October or November.
However, depending on how Kate feels on a day-to-day basis, last minute cancellations are to be expected.
“As with all her engagements, we are taking decisions closer to the time of them occurring, and we are keeping them under review,” a spokeswoman for the palace told People in a statement.
For those of you who follow the royal family closely, you may remember that Kate was forced to cancel what would have been her first solo international trip as a royal to celebrate Malta’s anniversary of independence. Thankfully, her husband, Prince William, was available to take her place for the celebration.
