Things seem to be looking up for Kate Middleton! During a royal outing in Liverpool, England on Thursday, Sept. 14, the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge’s husband, Prince William, gave fans an update on Kate’s health as she again battles Hyperemesis Gravidarum — a severe form of morning sickness — during her third pregnancy.

“She’s very well, thanks. Prince George started school, so it’s all, it’s been an interesting week,” William, 35, told cancer patient Pagan Tordengrav while visiting Aintree University Hospital, according to the Liverpool Echo. Kate, also 35, and William — who are already parents to George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2 — recently announced they were expecting baby No. 3 on Monday, Sept. 4.

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child. The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news,” a Kensington Palace statement read at the time. “As with her previous two pregnancies, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum… The Duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace.”

A few days later, Kate was sadly not able to accompany her son George on the little royal’s first day of school at London’s Thomas’s Battersea on Thursday, Sept. 7. “Their Royal Highnesses are delighted to have found a school where they are confident George will have a happy and successful start to his education,” a Kensington Palace spokesperson said earlier this year. The $8,300-per-term school currently has 544 day pupils, aged between four and 13, including one of George’s royal relatives, Maud Windsor.

According to Life & Style, Kate has “always wanted a third child” and is craving “spicy food and candy” during her third pregnancy. “Kate has talked to Queen Elizabeth about her motherhood plans, and she has been incredibly supportive. Her Majesty is just delighted that Kate has turned out to be such a star for the royal family. After all the scandals from the past, the Queen is glad Kate has brought stability to the family,” a royal insider recently told the magazine. We can’t wait to meet Kate and William’s new addition in March 2018!
