Duchess of Cambridge resting up until Christmas
Dec 7, 2012, 12:03 GMT
Britain's Duchess of Cambridge will be out of action until Christmas.
The 30-year-old beauty - who is expecting her first child with her husband Prince William - has been forced to cancel all royal engagements over the next few weeks due to suffering from debilitating acute morning sickness.
Catherine has called off two engagements this weekend after being ordered to rest in Kensington Palace for at least a week following her four-day stint in London's King Edward VII hospital, from which she was released yesterday (06.12.12).
She will most likely next be seen in public at the royal family's Christmas Day church visit at Sandringham, the Telegraph newspaper reports.
The duchess - formerly known as Kate Middleton - has cancelled her visit to homelessness charity Centrepoint at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday (08.12.12) as well as an appearance at the British Military Tournament at Earl's Court on Sunday. However, William will honour their engagements and is set to attend both events alone.
The parents-to-be were also expected to attend the Royal Film Performance of 'The Hobbit' in Leicester Square next Wednesday (12.12.12), but sources say Catherine's presence is now highly 'doubtful' and she would be 'governed by medical advice'.
She is likely to remain in London near her doctors until she is fully recovered.
