Kate Middleton was discharged from the hospital today after a four-day stay for pregnancy-related treatment – but not before a prank telephone call by two Australian radio personalities succeeded in prying information about the royal from a nurse.
Clutching a small bouquet of yellow roses, the former Kate Middleton smiled and posed briefly for a photograph alongside her husband, Prince William, before leaving King Edward VII Hospital. She stepped delicately into a waiting car. The Mirror quoted her as saying: "I'm feeling much better."
The couple's office said she would head to Kensington Palace in London for rest. She had been in the hospital since Dec. 3. Officials from St. James's Palace have said the duchess is not yet 12 weeks pregnant with the couple's first child.
William visited his wife at the hospital every day, while media from around the world camped outside, seeking any news on the royal pregnancy.
