Duke to 'spend Sunday privately with the Duchess'

The Duke of Cambridge has pulled out of attending the British Military Tournament tonight so he can spend time with the Duchess as she recuperates after receiving treatment in hospital for a severe form of morning sickness.

The royal couple had both been due to attend tonight's event, billed as "the largest display of military theatre in the world", but all of Kate's forthcoming public engagements were cancelled after she spent three nights at the King Edward VII's Hospital suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum.

The Duke of Cambridge will no longer attend the British Military Tournament at Earl's Court this evening, but will spend Sunday privately with the Duchess instead.

It is well known that hyperemesis gravidarum often recurs and, until further notice, to allow the Duchess a degree of privacy during her pregnancy, we do not intend to offer regular condition checks or advise of routine developments associated with it.
