The Duchess of Cambridge will not be attending the UK Premiere of "The Hobbit" tonight, as she is still recovering from acute morning sickness.

Her husband William, however, is expected to walk the red carpet in Leicester Square with the stars of the film, including Martin Freeman, Sir Ian McKellen and Cate Blanchett.
