Prince William Jokingly Asks Royal College Of Midwives President For Help With Kate’s Pregnancy

The Duke of Cambridge, who’s preparing to be a dad of two, spoke to Royal College of Midwives (PCM) Professor Lesley Page about his wife’s pregnancy

With Kate still suffering from the effects of Hyperemesis Gravidarum and a toddler to look after, it’s not surprising that Wills is willing to take all the help he can get. And he’s definitely asking the right person for assistance – one of the UK’s most senior midwives.

While presenting the RCM president Professor Lesley Page with a CBE, Wills spoke to her about Kate’s condition. ‘Well I’m a midwife so he talked about Catherine’s pregnancy,’ says Professor Lesley. ‘We talked about my being a midwife for well over 30 years and what’s changed, and what I’m doing now after becoming president of the Royal College of Midwives.

‘I almost said to him the second is much easier but I don’t think I quite got that out,’ the Professor says. ‘He actually said to me, “Would you like to come and help us?”’ And, naturally, Professor Lesley’s response was, ‘Yes, of course.’

Kate is still struggling with a pregnancy side effect called Hyperemesis Gravidarum, which has prevented her from attending a number of events.

Wills recently said they’re both ‘immensely thrilled’ to be expecting baby number two but admitted ‘it’s been a tricky week or so but I’m hoping things settle down and she feels a little better.’ We couldn’t agree more!
