A smiling but pale Kate Middleton mouthed the words “much better” Thursday after she was discharged from a London hospital.
Clutching a small bouquet of yellow roses in one hand and holding onto husband Prince William’s arm with the other, Kate stepped delicately into a waiting limo that whisked her away to Kensington Palace for an extended royal rest.
Any evidence of a baby bump was hidden from view by a dark woolen coat that the pregnant duchess wore against the English chill.
William’s pop, Prince Charles, said he was delighted by the prospect of becoming a granddad.
“I’m thrilled, marvelous,” the 64-year-old heir to the British throne told the BBC. “It’s a very nice thought to become a grandfather in my old age, if I can say so.”
