Glowing Kate Middleton shows off tiny baby bump in first appearance since announcing pregnancy

Kate Middleton glowed during her first public appearance since announcing her pregnancy.

The Duchess of Cambridge was forced to cancel a number of official engagements due to her severe morning sickness, a condition known as Hyperemesis Gravidarum.

But she put on a brave face this morning as she joined her husband Prince William to official greet the President of Singapore Tony Tan Keng Yam at London's Royal Garden Hotel.
