The star-studded UK premiere of the long-awaited Hobbit film will be held in London tonight but without the Duchess of Cambridge.
The Duke of Cambridge is still expected to attend The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in London's Leicester Square as Kate, continues to rest at St James's Palace from acute morning sickness.
Yesterday St James's Palace said:
"The Duchess of Cambridge will not attend The Hobbit premiere tomorrow evening and will continue to rest privately. The Duke of Cambridge will attend as planned."
