Kate to Appear in Public

In her first public showing since leaving the hospital for extreme morning sickness, Kate Middleton will attend the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year Awards on Sunday night. With her husband, Prince William, at work for the Royal Air Force, the Duchess of Cambridge’s solo appearance at the event is expected to last no longer than 45 minutes—just long enough for her to present the lifetime achievement and the main Sports Personality of the Year awards. Kate’s move take the BBC up on its longstanding invitation suggests the royal mother-to-be’s health is on the upswing.
