Kate Middleton is officially on maternity leave?


But for how long she’ll be out of the public eye? Here’s the answer.

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate, is keeping really busy, even in the final months of her pregnancy.

This morning, Kate Middleton made her final public engagements before officially taking a maternity leave. She was also seen making multiple appearances throughout the day.

First of all, she and Prince William toured the Copper Box arena in London to check out SportsAid. The Palace describes it as “the only national charity of its kind–helping young British sportsmen & women. They aspire to be the country’s next Olympic, Paralympic, Commonwealth & World Champions.”

Later in the day, the couple headed towards St Luke’s Community Centre. During their visit they helped prepare for The Big Lunch Project, a movement centred around food and bringing people together “to celebrate community and build connections across the Commonwealth.”

Both Buckingham and Kensington Palace has confirmed these were the Duchess’s final engagements before she gives birth. It has also been revealed that she is due sometime in April.

The news that Kate Middleton is expecting her third child may have the public squealing with delight, but many of us are also a bit concerned about her and baby’s well-being.

The Duchess of Cambridge, after her two pregnancies, has hyperemesis gravidarum (HG). It’s a condition that is characterized by severe nausea, vomiting, weight loss and dehydration.

According to Pratishtha Mahajan, chief editor of The Royal UK, Duchess Kate’s leave will last for about six months. But that doesn’t mean the public won’t still see her from time to time.

While Kate may not attend official engagements as a working royal until the fall, she is expected to be seen at other royal events. Some of the eminent events include Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding on May 19, Trooping the Colour on June 9, and the child’s christening.
