The royal couple is already having 4-year-old Prince George and 2-year-old Princess Charlotte.
Kate Middleton has suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum with both her previous pregnancies and she is expected to do so with her third one, as well, thus cancelling any official engagements for the following months.
Hyperemesis gravidarum is a pregnancy complication that translates into severe nausea and vomiting, triggering weight loss and dehydration. Women suffering from the condition experience far more aggressive symptoms than the common morning sickness. Treatment includes a bland diet, drinking a lot of liquids and resting. Medication is also prescribed.
The Duchess had already announced she wasn’t going to be able to make an appearance at the event scheduled on Monday at the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre.
Prince George is to start school in two days. Starting September 7, he will be attending classes at Thomas’s Battersea in London. “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, accompanying Prince George, will be met on arrival at the school by the Head of Lower School, Helen Haslem, who will then escort Their Royal Highnesses to Prince George’s reception classroom”, the Kensington Palace statement on August 29 read.
Thomas’s Battersea has a curriculum that includes significant physical activity (20% of classes are sports), drama (the students are putting together musicals each year), music, art and more. There are even pottery rooms, according to reviews from parents. The tuition here is $23,000 per year.
