We can all breathe a sigh of relief! Kate Middleton, who is expecting her first child, is now resting at home after being admitted to the hospital four days ago.

"The Duchess of Cambridge has been discharged from the King Edward VII Hospital and will now head to Kensington Palace for a period of rest," said Nick Loughran, the assistant press secretary to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, in a statement. "Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank the staff at the hospital for the care and treatment The Duchess has received." 

Kate and William were photographed leaving the hospital in London this morning, with Kate grinning and carrying a bouquet of yellow flowers — and looking fabulous, by the way! The Duchess was being treated at the hospital for hyperemesis gravidarum, an acute form of morning sickness. 

"I'm very glad my daughter is getting better. thank goodness," Kate’s father-in-law Prince Charles told reporters today at the launch of Sir Ranulph Fiennes' Antarctic expedition.
 
And he couldn’t be more excited about being a grandfather! "...I'm thrilled," he said. "It's marvelous. Very nice thought of grandfatherhood in my old age, if I may say so. So that's splendid."

Splendid, indeed!
