Pregnant Kate discharged from London hospital

The Duchess of Cambridge, accompanied by her husband, Prince William, left a London hospital where she was being treated for morning sickness.

LONDON — The Duchess of Cambridge has left a London hospital where she was being treated for acute morning sickness related to her pregnancy.

The former Kate Middleton smiled as she left King Edward VII Hospital on Thursday alongside her husband, Prince William. She was holding a bouquet of yellow flowers. Neither she nor William spoke to waiting reporters before being driven way.

Kate, who married the second-in-line to the throne in April 2011, has been suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, an acute morning sickness which causes severe nausea and vomiting and requires supplementary hydration and nutrients.

The couple's office said she would head to Kensington Palace in London for a period of rest.

Royal officials have said Kate is less than 12 weeks pregnant with her first child.
