Duchess of Cambridge leaves hospital

Britain's Duchess of Cambridge revealed she is feeling "much better" upon leaving hospital this morning.

The pregnant royal showed off her signature smile as she left London's King Edward VII hospital following a three-day stay for acute morning sickness. Her husband Prince William was by her side.

Catherine - who is rumoured to be 12 weeks pregnant - was clutching a bouquet of yellow roses as she emerged from hospital, telling reporters: "I'm feeling much better thank you."

Wrapped up in a long dark grey coat and scarf, the mother-to-be flashed a smile to waiting photographers before being driven away to Kensington Palace in a black Jaguar with her husband.

The duchess was being treated for Hyperemesis gravidarum, which causes severe nausea and vomiting and can lead to dehydration and weight loss.

Her leave from hospital comes as the furore continues over an Australian radio station hoaxing the hospital she was staying at.

2Day FM hosts Mel Greig and Michael Christian phoned King Edward VII Hospital pretending to be Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles and were given information about Catherine's condition.

The hospital has since said it "deeply regrets" sharing the confidential details, while the Sydney-based radio station "sincerely apologises" for the prank.
