In case you somehow haven't heard, Kate Middleton is suffering from severe morning sickness brought about by a condition known as Hyperemesis Gravidarum.
Amidst rumors that Kate is losing dangerous amounts of weight due to her illness, the Duchess made a surprise return to public life last week when she joined William and the Queen to welcome the president of Singapore to London.
Royal watchers took it as a sign that Kate is on the mend. However, sources close to the royal family say the Duchess is still very ill, and the Queen forced Kate to return to public life.
"The Queen has been unimpressed at the amount of official business Kate has missed out on," a source tells the tabloid. "She feels enough is enough, duty comes first, and it was time for Kate to step up to the plate."
"Elizabeth's pregnancies were easy compared to Kate's so she doesn't understand how badly Kate's been feeling. She will always put work first and believes Kate should do the same."
So does that mean Kate isn't getting better, like we'd hoped?
"She has been feeling absolutely horrific," says the insider, who adds that Prince William has been pleading with her to get more bed rest.
Yes, royal bullying is apparently a thing. The struggle is real!
