Kate left the Marylebone private hospital and was taken to Kensington Palace for a period of rest.

She emerged carrying a bouquet of yellow flowers and walked from the building with William.

She gave a brief smile to the waiting press before being driven away with her husband.

Kate, who is less than 12 weeks pregnant, was wrapped up against the cold in a coat and scarf.

She was admitted on Monday after developing the condition known as hyperemesis gravidarum, and was suffering from the effects of dehydration.

Her discharge comes the day after it emerged that two Australian radio DJs impersonated the Queen and the Prince of Wales to dupe hospital staff into giving a condition update on the Duchess.

The 2Day FM presenters, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, apologised for their actions, as did their radio station.

In a brief statement, St James’s Palace said: “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.

“Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank the staff at the hospital for the care and treatment the Duchess has received.”
