Rounding off what has been a glorious year for the British Royal family and their PR machine there has been an announcement today that the Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant. It is one of those news items that the media love. In the UK currently the news is full of Kate's pregnancy. To think we will have months more of this to endure.
Kate is less than 12 weeks pregnant and today she has been hospitalised. She is said to be suffering from Hyperemisis Gravidarum which is acute morning sickness, As an already thin young woman doctors are taking a cautious approach.
She has been admitted to the King Edward VII hospital for treatment and is expected to be there for a day or two at least. It could be that Kate will have this acute morning sickness during her pregnancy so it will not be completely resolved in hospital. Medical professionals will be making sure that both mother and baby to be are well. Various treatments are possible and we should remember that the pregnancy is in its early stages.
Crowds have gathered outside of the hospital, mainly made up of media representatives hoping for a "snap" of William or other members of the Royal Family. In turn a heavy security presences is now there.
One interesting point is that should William and Kate's first born be a girl she will ascend to the throne of England even if sons follow.
Whilst no-one would wish any harm to those involved it is rather sickening to keep hearing how the whole of the country will be so happy with the news of another royal mouth. Treason? No just an honest assessment which will be hard to find for the next 7 or 8 months. No waiting for a hospital bed for this young lady.
Good lcuk to the couple, is sent as it would be to any young couple.
