If you needed a reason to love the royal family even more, then here it is. While suffering from a severe form of morning sickness, hyperemesis gravidarum, Duchess Kate attended World Mental Health Day at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday. About a month ago, the celebrity couple Prince William and the Duchess announced they were expecting another celebrity baby. As this was her first outing since the announcement, fans were eager to see Middleston’s growing bump. However, they were shocked to see that her belly was extremely thin, and they were quick to comment on it saying, “I can’t believe she’s prego, she looks too thin.” According to UsMagazine.com, another fan jumped to her rescue and claimed that her late showing is likely due to her medical condition.
