Royal baby latest: Desperate Kate tries ginger to combat extreme morning sickness
The Duchess of Cambridge has been trying a number of remedies, even ginger, in a desperate effort to combat her morning sickness, Prince William has revealed.
Kate, who is expecting her third child, is again suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum which plagued her during the early stages of her pregnancies when she was carrying Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

When an elderly mother-of-three revealed to William she had a similar illness when pregnant with her sons, he confessed his wife had tried ginger, a well-known remedy for upset stomachs.
The Duke met Iris Orrell, 98, when he attended a presentation ceremony and reception celebrating the Metropolitan and City Police Orphans Fund, which he supports as patron.
Experts warn the effect of hyperemesis gravidarum increases with each child carried by the mother and William asked Mrs Orrell “did it get worse with each pregnancy,” and was told it did.
The 98-year-old said her doctor advised her to try “dry biscuits” and the Duke replied that ginger was supposed to help with the condition.

Prince William said: “Ginger biscuits – but there’s not much ginger can do to stop that – we’ve done all that.”
During the brief chat held at the end of a reception, where the Duke met many families supported by the Fund, the 98-year-old wished Kate well and William told her: “She is feeling better, thank you.”
Kate has been forced to miss a number of events, including her son Prince George’s first day at school, with severe morning sickness.
But the Duchess has been named by Kensington Palace, alongside husband William and Prince Harry, as the royal hosts of the October 10 reception celebrating the contribution of those working in the mental health sector across the UK.
The Duchess of Cambridge is thought to be less than 12 weeks pregnant, with her bout of hyperemesis gravidarum forcing her to pull out of an event at the beginning of September and prompting the palace to make the pregnancy announcement early.
