The Duchess of Cambridge and her husband Prince William had a packed schedule on Thursday, which was Kate's last working day before the arrival of baby number three. Prince George was born to Kate and Phillip in 2013 and Prince Charlotte in 2015.

All three of Kate's pregnancies have seen her suffering from a condition called hyperemesis gravidarum that is characterized as a severe form of morning sickness. Symptoms of the disease include possible dehydration as a result of severe nausea and vomiting that could also lead to weight loss. The Duchess had to cancel several official engagements due to her issues with the condition.
