On Tuesday, Oct. 10, Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, made their first official appearance since announcing that they were expecting their third child.

The duchess made an appearance at a reception for World Mental Health Day at Buckingham Palace, despite having hyperemesis gravidarum, a condition that causes severe morning sickness.

According to the American Pregnancy Association, hyperemesis gravidarum can cause severe nausea that does not subside, dehydration, and weight loss of 5% or more of pre-pregnancy weight.


Some people felt the need to assert that the duchess looks "too thin" to be pregnant.
