Duchess of Cambridge ‘needed relaxing break’

Duchess of Cambridge

Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge was reportedly “badly in need” of a vacation.

Last week Prince William and his pregnant wife Catherine jetted to Mustique in the Caribbean for an exotic beach break.

The pretty royal has been suffering from severe morning sickness and the vacation came at just the right time for her.

“Kate is completely exhausted. She badly needs the rest and to try and start eating more,” a source told British magazine Star.

“She has felt sick for so long, it’s vital that her health improves to help the baby along.”

Catherine was diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum, a type of morning sickness that causes extreme nausea and vomiting.

The pretty brunette was even hospitalised during the worst of the sickness, leaving her husband worried about her wellbeing.

“He has been consumed with worry about Kate since before Christmas, and now she is starting to feel a little better, he’s seized the opportunity to fly them out,” the insider continued.

The UK has experienced cold temperatures this winter, including bouts of snow.

Catherine’s parents Carole and Michael also joined the couple on holiday in the hope the sunshine and some extra care and attention will help their daughter.

“It has been a cold winter and what with all the snow and her sickness, Kate was craving some winter sunshine. This trip should do her the world of good,” the source finished.

However, their hopes for a relaxing trip away from the public spotlight have been spoilt after photographers captured the pregnant royal baring her baby bump as she swam in a blue bikini.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant


It's difficult to deal with a highly competitive colleague. Every time you submit work, they try to find ways to outperform you. Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible. A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
