The Duchess of Cambridge
Britain's Duchess Catherine is back at work.
The pregnant royal had been suffering from acute morning sickness, but has recently returned back to her normal duties and is having daily talks with charity officials and advisers.
A senior aide told the Daily Express newspaper: 'The duchess is having meetings about future engagements.'
A St James's Palace spokesman added: 'She continues to feel better.'
Catherine - who was known as Kate Middleton until her wedding to Prince William in April 2011 - was originally admitted to hospital in December with morning sickness and soon after she was discharged William said it was harder to cope with than expected.
He said: 'I don't know why they call it morning sickness - they should call it all day and all night sickness. It's a long old process but she is getting there. She feels like it is going to go on forever.'
Since she started her charity work, the duchess has been praised for by children's charity The Art Room - which is based in Oxford, southern England, and helps youngsters aged five to 16 with emotional and behavioral difficulties - for being 'instrumental' in helping the them almost double the number of art rooms it has.
Juli Beattie, founder director of The Art Room - which Catherine became patron of last year - told the Oxford Mail newspaper: 'It has been a fantastic year for The Art Room since HRH The Duchess of Cambridge became our royal patron.
'Her support has been instrumental in taking our charity to the next level in our drive to become a national organisation taking art as therapy to more and more children.'
Catherine is due to give birth in July.
