Kate Middleton set to return to work next month after bout of morning sickness
The Duchess of Cambridge is set to return to work after recovering from morning sickness.
Kate Middleton, who announced that she is pregnant with her second child at the start of this month, was forced to pull out of a number of appearances because of the illness, including her first solo trip abroad to Malta.
She had been suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum – an extreme form of morning sickness that causes severe vomiting, dehydration, nausea and weight loss.
During her first pregnancy with Prince George, Kate was admitted to hospital with the same condition.
However, the Palace has confirmed that she is recovering well and could return to work as soon as next month.
A spokesperson told the Mail on Sunday: "There will be engagements in October and November. We just haven’t announced them yet.”
Kate’s last official engagement was on August 5 when she opened a poppy installation at the Tower of London alongside her husband William and Prince Harry.
Three weeks ago she was due to join her husband at an engagement in Oxford but was too ill, which prompted the Palace to announce her pregnancy early in similar fashion to when she was carrying George.
It has been reported that she is currently being treated by doctors at her home in Kensington Palace.
