Just hours after news of Kate Middleton’s pregnancy broke, Prince William was photographed leaving the King Edward VII Hospital Monday in Central London. Middleton, 30, was admitted to the hospital earlier in the day for hyperemesis gravidarum, or acute morning sickness, which appeared to have compelled the Palace to confirm rumors that Princess Kate was with child.

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby,” the Palace said in a statement. “The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news.”
