With the 10th wedding anniversary of Prince William and Kate Middleton, reports about their union are surfacing, including how her pregnancy announcement was leaked.
During her pregnancy with Prince George, the Duchess of Cambridge suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum, an unusual form of morning sickness.The royal establishment was rocked early on when they had to make a baby announcement weeks earlier than planned.
This is because the Duchess spent a few nights in the hospital during her early days, which caused officials to be concerned about public perception.
As a result, Buckingham Palace and St James’ Palace collaborated on a statement announcing her pregnancy, which would normally have been completed at the three-month mark.
Ashley Pearson said:
“Kate was forced to announce prior to being 12 weeks pregnant, that she was in fact expecting because she was hospitalised for very, very severe morning sickness.
“William and Kate had talked at length about how they wanted to make this announcement to the world, and it certainly wasn’t going to be this way, and at that stage in the pregnancy.
“Most celebrities, particularly royals, wait until that first trimester is finished before they make any happy announcements.
“But because Kate was taken very suddenly to the hospital, because of her severe morning sickness condition, the Palace was forced to issue a statement as to why she was there – and the news of the pregnancy was leaked.”
