Catherine is pregnant with the couple’s first child, but unfortunately St. James’s Palace had to make the announcement before her 12-week scan, as it proved impossible to keep her condition out of the press.
Catherine has also had to cancel upcoming engagements this week, including the British Military Tournament on Sunday, December 9th.
According to the Daily Mail‘s Rebecca English, Catherine is “responding well” to treatments. Carole Middleton was seen leaving her Bucklebury home today, no doubt heading to visit her daughter. Royal gynecologists Alan Farthing and Marcus Setchell are treating Catherine, who did not want to make the announcement until Christmas at Sandringham.
English tweeted from outside the hospital last night:
…it’s important to note Prince William’s demeanour at hospital tonight. While we are all delighted for them it is clearly very early days.

Brace yourselves, because Snooki has been asked to give Her Royal Highness pregnancy advice.
“It’s hard, but don’t stress out,” she told New York Daily News. ”Enjoy your pregnancy and be excited.
“Enjoy your time at home — or the castle, in her case — with the baby,” she said. “Especially the first few months.”
Words to live by. I get more out of talking to my own mother.
