Kate suffers hyperemesis gravidarum, and was also struck down by the severe version of morning sickness in her two previous pregnancy. The NHS said: “HG is much worse than the normal nausea and vomiting of pregnancy.
“Signs and symptoms of HG include prolonged and severe nausea and vomiting – some women report being sick up to 50 times a day.
“Unlike regular pregnancy sickness, HG may not get better by 14 weeks. It may not clear up completely until the baby is born, although some symptoms may improve at around 20 weeks.”

He told Express.co.uk: “It is possible Beatrice or Eugenie might be a godparent to the new baby.”
