It has been reported elsewhere that it was a packet of Mini Cheddars which is a brand of baked cheddar cheese biscuit? I'm not familiar with these, but note that dry cracker or biscuit-type foods are often used to quell nausea by pregnant women. Anyone familiar with Mini Cheddars?

And that brings up some interesting points. Since leaving the hospital, Kate has been:
  • at 1 public engagement, which she attended for about 45 minutes.
  • at 2 private lunches
  • at church on Christmas day
  • reported to be at Sandringham for Boxing Day. Because it was raining, she reportedly did not attend the shoot, neither did the Queen
  • stopped at a petrol station - possibly enroute to Berkshire - to reportedly buy Mini Cheddars
Did I miss anything - anything to add to the above?

So, in other words, although we have seen photos of her, she has had exactly 1 public appearance of a very short duration since she left hospital.

All other sightings and reports (that I'm aware of) are in places, that if she needed to be sick, she could do so relatively privately, without media around getting pics of her dashing to the loo.

Kate has also had the backing of the Queen (who announced, prior to Christmas) that she approved William and Kate spending Christmas Day in Berkshire.

It is my opinion that although Kate is coping and getting better, she still suffers from the effects of HG.

What gives me pause about this latest photo of "Kate" is that thick belt that seems to be bound so tightly around her waist. Would a woman who is three months along really wear a belt that tight ... especially if she's having morning sickness?

She has HG, she's always sick and that's why she looks so thin And pic is not very clear...

Camilla Tominey's hilarious story is just classic. She decides to give William a dig, so she expects us to believe that a helicopter flying, motorbike loving, rugby and football playing soldier would prefer to watch Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart trying desperately to pretend that the whole thing isn't a steaming pile of horse manure, rather than the all-action, super-suave MI6 spy, James Bond?

I believe the appropriate term here is 'fail'.

Camilla Tominey tends to get on US TV quite a lot when there are big royal happenings with William and Kate. She obviously has no story to give Good Morning America or whatever show she appears on, so to maximise her potential airtime she decided to create one. Unfortunately, it's so transparently stupid as to be laughable.

Sorry for the double post, but I just wanted to say that the 'Mini Cheddars' that Kate was buying are little crackers with a cheddar cheese flavouring. The crackers are small, about the size of a US quarter or 10p piece in the UK. They're very moreish, and it can be difficult to stop eating them when you start a packet.

Exactly what someone with nausea would be advised to eat. You can see them here:

If Kate were about 12 weeks pregnant, the fetus is only about the size of a plum. For a little giggle, here is the fruit and vegetable guide to pregnancy: Baby Size Chart - Fetus Size Chart

Thanks, CanRoyal. Good chart for perspective! I was more concerned about the fact that she's probably still experiencing nausea, especially with HG. When my stomach is upset, I don't want anything touching it, let alone a tight belt. But everyone's different, so maybe the tightness helps her.

I had HG when I was pregnant and as a result I didn't have a "proper" baby bump until the second trimester. It doen's mean anything is wrong with the baby as I ended up giving birth to healthy daughters
I remember I dreamed with food, particularly chocolate cake and watermelon (don't ask me why) and when I smelled the food I was sick...

I do think she's feeling better too although she still looks to thin

I think HRH is now over the 12 week stage or just about now.

Good article. The press in Britain is entirely free and an editorial decision was made by the Express and other mainstream media not to publish the photos, just like the Daily Mail made the decision to publish the photos and then made the decision to take them down.

For people saying the palace has the power and authority to 'ban' photos, can you please provide the specific statue that gives them this power?

Very interesting article and I'm glad the Cambridges and their team didn't ban the pictures. Seems like the press was just being careful.

From the article
Quote:
The short answer is that my own newspaper and others (but not all media organisations) decided not to print them because St James's Palace had sent out a short note announcing that Prince William and his pregnant wife would be spending Christmas Day with the Middleton family and asking that their privacy be respected.
Newspaper editors interpreted that note, which insisted there would be no photo opportunity of the couple, to mean they felt they had a right to privacy even when they were attending church.
In fact, a St James's Palace spokesman told me today: "We never banned those photographs at all. In fact, those media organisations who bothered to ask us were told it was entirely up to them whether they published."
Pretty straightforward
I don't understand why newspapers, which are entirely free to publish anything they want make a conscious editorial decision not to publish photos and then afterwards complain about it.

I don't know, I guess when the press have to walk on egg shells with the royal family, it kinda puts them on edge. I personally saw nothing wrong with the media publishing the pictures and it was nice to see the future King & Queen going to church on Christmas Day.

But at the end of the day, the editors at the Express and many other papers decided not to publish the photos. Richard Palmer does not agree with the decision and thats fine.
But Mr Palmer should write a blog blasting his editors for the decision, and not try to turn it around on the Royals.

I have a friend who is 7 months pregnant and she still doesn't have a proper baby bump.

Nor did I. I had to tell people I was pregnant at 32 weeks (tall and thin like Kate). At that point, I stood down from riding and it basically popped over night

My mom had no bump what's so ever when she was pregnant with me till around 6 months. She said one day she just woke up and there it was. It was never a gradual thing it just popped.
