The young Royal couple announced a few days ago that they are expecting a child. The 30-year-old Duchess is believed to be 12 weeks pregnant.
"Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby. The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news," the couple's official website said.
"The Duchess was admitted this afternoon to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London with Hyperemesis Gravidarum. As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter," according to the official website.
However, soon after making the happy news public, the Duchess was King Edward VII Hospital in central London on Monday following morning sickness, which could have been caused by pregnancy. She was discharged from the hospital on Thursday after after three days.
St. James' Palace issued a statement saying that the Duchess of Cambridge was discharged from the King Edward VII Hospital and would head to Kensington Palace for sometime to take rest, and thanked that staff of the hospital for taking good care of the Duchess.
