Royal baby bump watch part two has officially commenced!
Kate Middleton is set to return to royal duties over the next month following the announcement that she is expecting a second child with husband Prince William, a new report states.
The Duchess, 32, has public appearances planned for October through the weeks before Christmas if her severe morning sickness subsides before this time.
Kate is currently suffering from "hyperemesis gravidarum," which also affected her first pregnancy with Prince George. The illness can be debilitating and very difficult emotionally, an expert says.
The impending engagements are planned to occur after Kate has passed the first trimester mark in her pregnancy and will, of course, be contingent upon her health.

Palace sources are not confirming what the commitments are at this time in case she is too ill to attend. Public appearances are being scheduled on a "day by day basis" as they monitor her health, a royal source said. "There are engagements she would like to do over the coming months, but they are being reviewed daily."
Kate was scheduled to fulfill public engagements in southern European island, Malta, earlier this month but was ultimately unable to make the trip as doctors ruled she was unfit to travel. Her husband, Prince William, attended instead and told people in the crowds that his wife was feeling "so-so."
The Royal Family announced Kate and Wills are pregnant their second baby on Sept. 8. The news came just two months after their eldest, Prince George celebrated his first birthday on July 22.
