Kate Middleton Pregnancy Watch: Prince William takes morning sickness paternity leave
KATE Middleton Pregnancy watch: Day 7 update 1 – Prince William gets paternity leave:
A St James’s Palace spokesman tells media:
“The Duke of Cambridge will no longer attend the British Military Tournament at Earls 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.”
He can’t attend a ceremony because his pregnant wife has morning sickness? He’s on paternity leave.
PS – Kate Middleton’s pregnancy is announced at the same time we get news that she’s sick. She is able to lay low with the nation’s sympathies behind her. If you wanted to give Kate time and space to dodge the voracious media pack, you’d be hard pressed to cook-up a better story.
