    First, wishing a healthly and happy baby; second, a girl; third, they name her Diana. To come full circle, Queen Diana.

    Congratulations to them and all the people of the UK. They are a beautiful example for all the youth, traditional marriage and the family it produces are the basic building blocks of humanity.

      They've been married less than a year sweetheart, hold off on that for maybe 20 years?

    Hospitalized for morning sickness? Perhaps I'm missing something.

      It's ACUTE morning sickness and when that happens, you are throwing up non stop...even water.

      Clearly you've never been pregnant. Also, if you aren't expecting it and suddenly you wake up projective vomiting, you'd want to go to the emergency ward too. Someone of Kate's stature if she suddenly comes over ill, she gets sent to the hospital as a precaution. I bet that's how they found out.

      Yes, if vomiting is extreme, you can get dehydrated, which is obviously extremely dangerous

      Google "hyperemesis." It's serious stuff. Poor Kate.

      It's called hyperemesis gravidarum. And it can be very serious.

    In other words, "Kate and William were intimate and he didn't pull out." What passes for news today is a joke.

    Admitted to the hospital for "morning sickness"? LOL. Good luck with the actual birthing process Kate.

      Yes, you can be hospitalized for "morning sickness." It's called hypermesis gravaridium! She probably there for fluids. I had "morning" sickness that lasted throughout my ENTIRE pregnancy, and hospitalized at 35 weeks due to severe dehydration.

      She probably has hyperemesis, which is very serious and can require hospitalization. I had it my first pregnancy and wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Lost 20 pounds, needed fluid IVs....
