THE Duke of Cambridge has pulled out of the British Military Tournament so he can spend more time with his pregnant wife.

The royal couple had been due to attend the event together on Saturday, but all of Kate’s planned engagements have been cancelled after she required hospital treatment for hyperemesis gravidarum.

Kate left hospital on Friday after three days of treatment.

St James’s Palace is keen to protect her privacy during the pregnancy. A spokesman said: “The Duke of Cambridge will no longer attend the British Military Tournament at Earls Court this evening, but will spend Sunday privately with the duchess instead.

“It is well known that hyperemesis gravidarum often recurs and, until further notice, to allow the duchess a degree of privacy during her
pregnancy, we do not intend to offer regular condition checks or advise of routine developments associated with it.”
