Kate Middleton Collapses: REPORT

Thursday, December 20, 2012

KATE Middleton recently suffered a shocking collapse — just hours before her first public appearance since announcing her pregnancy.

But despite her health woes, Kate — who’s expecting her first child with husband Prince William — was determined to attend the event despite a crippling new bout of morning sick­ness.

“KATE COLLAPSED IN A CHAIR while she was getting ready for the evening,” said an insider.

“She was in so much distress that she could barely stand up. But she took a page out of the late Princess Diana’s playbook and soldiered on because she shares Di’s strong sense of duty.

“Kate would never do anything to endanger her baby, but when she says she’s going to do something, it’s important to her to carry it through.”

Kate, 30, was sporting a dark green floor-length Alexander McQueen gown as she presented trophies and posed for pictures at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards in London on Dec. 16. It was her first public event since she was hospitalized for three nights with acute morning sickness after revealing that she’s pregnant.

“It was particularly tough for Kate because William was in Wales working a shift for the Royal Air Force,” said the in­sider.

“He didn’t want her to go, but Kate insisted she’d be fine on her own. William knows that once Kate sets her mind to do something, nothing will stop her. He definitely sees a lot of his mother in her.”[imagebrowser id=1187]
