Pregnant Kate leaves hospital, feeling 'better'


The Duchess of Cambridge left hospital today saying she felt "much better" after suffering from severe morning sickness. Managing a brief smile as she was greeted by press photographers, who had been waiting outside the King Edward hospital in central London following the news on Monday that she was pregnant, the Duchess was driven to Kensington Palace.

Meanwhile the Prince of Wales said he was "thrilled" that the Duchess was pregnant, adding: "It's a very nice thought to become a grandfather in my old age."
