“It is well known that Hyperemesis Gravidarum often recurs,” a St. James Palace spokesman told Us Weekly, confirming that Prince William canceled his appearance at the British Military Tournament to be by Kate’s side at their Kensington Palace home.
“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.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, “Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is a rare disorder characterized by severe and persistent nausea and vomiting during pregnancy that may necessitate hospitalization,” according to WebMd.com.
“As a result of frequent nausea and vomiting, affected women experience dehydration, vitamin and mineral deficit, and the loss of greater than five percent of their original body weight.”
Adding to Kate’s already eventful pregnancy is the tragic suicide of Jacintha Saldanha, the hospital nurse who patched through Australian radio hosts Mel Greig and Michael Christian who called for Kate pretending to be the Queen and Prince Charles.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge released a statement on Friday saying they were “deeply saddened” by Jacintha’s death and added: “Their thoughts and prayers are with Jacintha Saldanha’s family, friends and colleagues at this very sad time.”
Jacintha’s husband, Benedict Barboza, broke his silence over the weekend saying, “I am devastated with the tragic loss of my beloved wife Jacintha in tragic circumstances. She will be laid to rest in Shriva, India.
“We as a family are deeply saddened by the loss of our beloved Jacintha.”
