(LONDON) — Kate Middleton has been seen out and about in public lately, shopping for maternity clothes in anticipation of her first child with Prince William.
The Duchess of Cambridge has been under the weather lately due to a severe form of morning sickness known as hyperemesis gravidarum that hospitalized her last month. There have also been reports that Middleton has undergone hypnotherapy to relieve an aversion to food brought on by her pregnancy.
A source told Us magazine that the morning sickness is now behind Middleton and the press caught up with the duchess last Monday at various clothing stores in London, including Selfridge’s department store where she checked out a brand of sportswear called Sweaty Betty.
The same source also told Us that maternity clothes shopping isn’t the only activity Middleton’s engaged in. She’s attending “meetings with the charities she is involved with and planning future engagements before the baby is born. She wants to keep herself busy now that she is feeling better.”
If all goes well, the newest addition to the Royal Family is due sometime in July.
