Kate pregnancy: Anglesey 'thrilled', says lifeboat guild chair

The Duchess of Cambridge is beginning a second day in hospital for treatment for severe morning sickness.

The duchess, who is thought to be under 12 weeks pregnant, is expected to remain at King Edward VII hospital in central London for several days.

Her admission prompted an unexpected announcement of the pregnancy.

The Duke of Cambridge, who is an RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot on Anglesey, spent a number of hours at the hospital on Monday.

Heather Abbott, chairwoman of Holyhead and Trearddur Bay Ladies Lifeboat Guild on Anglesey, met the couple last year on their first official joint appearance in dedicating an RNLI lifeboat on the island.

She said it was wonderful news and the duke and duchess had become very popular on Anglesey.
