The Duchess of Cambridge will visit an addiction charity today to meet women recovering from alcohol and drug dependency. Kate will travel to Hope House treatment centre, in Clapham in her role as patron of Action on Addiction.

Each year a different charity, all with royal patrons, will receive fundraising support from 100 Women In Hedge Funds starting with Action on Addiction in 2013, then Harry's charity WellChild in 2014 and finally Kate's organisation the Art Room in 2015.

Kate's visit to the charity's treatment centre will be her first official appearance since pictures showing her on holiday in a bikini and with a very slight baby bump were published in a number of foreign magazines.

St James's Palace announced that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting a baby and also said the Duchess has been admitted to the private King Edward VII Hospital in central London with "hyperemesis gravidarum".

St James's Palace added: "As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter."

Duchess of Cambridge visits Natural History Museum

The Duchess of Cambridge will be inspecting fossils, shells, even dinosaur teeth a little later when she visits the Natural History Museum.

On display there, artefacts from millions of years ago. The collection also includes the skull of a lion who once lived at the Tower of London. And a rather popular gorilla.

Liz Wickham had a sneak preview.
