The announcement came on Monday, December 3, 2012 that Kate was less than twelve weeks pregnant and was admitted to King Edward VII hospital in Central London. She was suffering from acute morning sickness (Hyperemesis Gravidarum).
The Duchess was staying with her parents in Bucklebury and was driven by William (she refused the offer to be transported via ambulance) to the hospital.
After a three day over-night stay in the hospital, Kate was, this morning, discharged. She will now head to Kensington Palace for a period of rest.
The Duchess of Cambridge wrapped up for the cold in a navy blue Diane von Furstenberg Simyonette Plaid Coat (thanks to WKW for the ID), a baby blue scarf and her black Russell & Bromley knee high ‘Charge It’ boots while holding a bunch of bright yellow flowers. Kate’s glossy hair was immaculately pinned up into an elegant half-ponytail.
The Diane von Furstenberg Simyonette Plaid Coat ($675) is from the designers autumn/winter 2010 collection. The wool (60% cotton/40% wool) coat features a muted plaid pattern, a double breasted collar, ruffle accents around the cuffs and a back belt.
