It’s been a rather busy few days for Kate Middleton. Not only has her due date been confirmed by the palace, but it now also looks as though the Duchess has finally got over the severe illness that had blighted her pregnancy. Plus her Christmas plans have also been revealed too.
Middleton will give birth to Prince George’s brother or sister in April while it has also been alleged that she has finally over the Hyperemesis Gravidarum that had left her bed-ridden for the last few weeks.
According to the International Business Times, Middleton was spotted in public for the first time since her second pregnancy was announced on September 8. It’s believed that, alongside her husband, Prince William, she was seen leaving a clinic on October 15. The New York Daily News were the first to publish the images of the pair, which they’ve reported come from the aforementioned date.
The pair was thought to have met with Dr. Alan Farthing, the doctor who has been overseeing Middleton during her treatment. It’s been speculated that this was for her first-trimester scan, which suggests that this means she is 12 weeks pregnant.
The New York Daily News went on to declare that Middleton couldn’t contain her excitement as they bounded in and out of the clinic.
Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate Middleton are also hard at work currently planning out their Christmas too. According to The Independent, Middleton was hoping to throw a soiree at Anmer Hall where she was planning to welcome, alongside Prince William and Prince George, her family – Michael Carole, Pippa, and James Middleton – on December 25.
However, The Daily Mail have insisted that Middleton, William and George will actually be at Sandringham House for the Queen’s own holiday plans. Unfortunately, the rest of the Middletons won’t be allowed to attend as there simply isn’t enough room for them there.
A source for the British newspaper went on to explain that while the Queen is fond of Kate and doesn’t want to “exclude her family,” it is a matter of it being logistically impossible to include them.
“It is highly unlikely that Kate’s family will be invited to the big Christmas lunch, or the famous Boxing Day shoot. Perhaps one day they will be invited to the big house for tea, but not for lunch or dinner, and not on Christmas Day. The Queen is fond of Kate and doesn’t mean to exclude her family – indeed she has broken many of the old rules for them in the past. But if all of her children and grandchildren’s wives had their families to lunch, there wouldn’t be enough room, even at Sandringham House’s dining room.”
